So let’s start the blog off with a tape I really love. This
follow up of the incredible minimal synth tape Rrröster by Brunst (you knowwhere to find it) continues where the former left off, only adds a couple of
more experimentations and industrial hints. This 1986 tape from one of the guys
of Njurmännen (Magnus) starts with Auwa II, the little brother (or sister) of
the monster minimal synth track Auwa on the first cassette, still one of my all
time favorite songs. Pure analog synth power! These tapes deserve a proper
reissue, maybe on the label which has already released the old Njurmännen
cassettes (which are awesome!)If they
reissued those then they should rerelease these closely related minimal synth
pearls from sweden too. Moreover since the whole minimal synth wave hype
Anyway the best song here is “For Jogga Only”. A totally crazy, demented and
distorted minimal synth version of Billy Idol’s white wedding. I’m sure Jogga
liked it a lot.
This release was on Konduktör records, also from sweden, which
is definitely worth checking out. Has some awesome acts on there like Cloister
M. Forshage and others that you can find elsewhere. Brunst just released a new
tape on Hosianna Records in the end of 2012, don’t know what it sounds like,
but I’m curious. You can buy it here.
Also Rebellen is still available through Börft records here, the label of the
legendary FRAK guys. Buy it and support the artists!
The sound is not in the best shape as one of the stereo sides
of the tape itself had a lot of white noise and I’m still figuring out how to
rip music the best way. Any simple suggestions are very welcome. If someone
wants to bother to reduce the noise I can supply the WAV. Files. Also I need
help in knowing what would be the best website to upload stuff to, because I
don’t trust anyone in life anymore since the megaupload drama. No, just
kidding, I don’t trust upload websites that much anymore and they are getting
more and more commercialized.
The focus of this blog is mostly on music, probably unknown
and forgotten. Sometimes serious stuff, sometimes oddities. However, my main
concern is not to complete the world of deviant music on other blogs, but to
offer you a path through my insights about music, art and possible other stuff.
So don’t expect the usual music blog with tons of stuff, because I don’t have
that much to share.To a certain extentalmost all music is already uncovered throughout the blogosphere. All
uploads offered here are rips I do myself and I don’t want to share what you
can already find elsewhere or copy existing links. Probably some parts will
focus more strictly on dutch stuff, but I’ll try to keep it as international as
possible. Also I would like to raise a platform with this blog for own
projects, projects of partners in crime and other interesting stuff. I don’t
post all the time because I’ve got enough things to do and like to enjoy life
away from cyberspace.
Let’s see what will happen!
