new split tape out now

some reviews from possible places added there.

H Y S T E R T A P E S:

*all gone already. some of the material got released on cd-r in 2002 behalf of musically incorrect records (MIR#6),
it was an split release with skullpture.

DIETER MUH: doin? it dresden style (HYSTER02, 2003)
*recycled tape, 38min of finest DM live action from yr 2000. recorded in dresden squat A.Z. Conni. edition of 50. sold out.

XXIII: live at la-bas (HYSTER03, 2007)
*when active totally unknown and now defunct finnish group that got started as simple harsh trash metal gatherering/beating
exercise and eventually evolved into more "civilized", slightly gamelan-like outfit which main characteristic seemed
to be the fact that every instrument, whether electric guitar or piece of scrap metal sheet, is a percussion instrument.
this is the first actual release, recording of their third or fourth (opinions differ) gig, from year 2004.
about 40 minutes. recycled tape. edition of 50 copies.

YOUR OWN SHADOW BLOCKS THE LIGHT compilation tape (HYSTER04, 2007)
*C60 including pieces of:
XXIII (sleepy scrap metal percussion, lo-fi guitar amplifier hum & feedback + some old weak synth sounds)
kyt?& suihkonen (gently delayed plucked scrapings of the violin)
culver (lo-fi guitars on top of other guitars & buzz from UK)
grey park (imitation of life as stern asian man in sound of space gone quite terribly wrong)
destroy all tie fighters (moving sough & feedback of guitars bowed and vocals)
mosaic antenna (very taped recordings of rumblings of odd lo-fi objects in jyv?kyl?
yuriyuri (hi-fi recording of extended exercise on highpitched analogue whine)
its probably the best thing since free bread!

*C30 tape of seriously alienated and politically hysterical steal©-paste electro-pop-disco. 5 hits recorded live in various spots

on recyloid pates and an edition of 32 copies. all gone already!

CULVER: they killed suzie carter (HYSTER07, 2008)

RE-CLIP: notes (HYSTER08, 2009)
*superb 50+min selection from a vault of 10 years (1999-2009) worth of pretty funky techno/electro lo-fi clicks, cuts, clippings, tiny broken beats,
odd ambient stylings, home field-recordings and even some quite mr.oizoesque rhythms. works very well while you aimlessly wander
thru that desolate, nightly/daily urban landscape you quite erroneously call your home.
editon 0f 50 copies, recyckeld dapes. all done and done.

SECOND ONE compilation tape (HYSTER09, 2010)
*about 60min compilation of sounds from finland, czech and USA. artists are: aiko, crank sturgeon, re-clip, cleavage, hiss nausea and varropas.
expect deep washing drone work-out, crazy rural sound/vocal concretism, nightshift city ambience, weak guitar noise digging, hoisting of the 13cm,
10000 ton flag and soothing static guitar + vintage analogue synth slow sleep-o. its all quite monumental!

survive and keep IT super-alive in N.Y.C. with piano and vocals. was edition of 50 on recycled tapes.

10e + postages

*TJ&J-side bit heroic and at times rhythmic sound snippets of improvising dual laptops. occasional small sounds. bravely almost touching techno at points.
entertaining, eduvacational and interesting 29 minutes. the fifteen minutes on LS-side are also made up from quite tiny sounds, theres just more of them alike.
illusion of density slowly building and then suddenly almost totally collapsing. much like your life. there is also an reindeer on the cover.
please do use headphones for maximum impact.

O T H E R T A P E S:

ALTAAT: s/t (IKASUS-038)
*pretty, mellow ambient with atleast synth and electric guitar from turku. kind of basic and very good.
4e + postages

ANOTHER WAY: Az Idő Rövid Története (POSTHUMAN PROD 003)
*some sort of modern, quite technical and clean sounding fast punk from hungary. short songs, most go
just barely over one minute. i dont know what to say.

*two fin free rock exp acts, BM live TH not.

CAHIER: vocales (YAK-018)
*perplexed vocal bendings on 4-track with piano and strings. oddly reminds me of sort of one man gybe!/asmz sound that
the guy from Babylon Zoo might have come up with. and make no mistake, thats an compliment! very strange tape..
3e + postages

*C40, on CCH side "recollections of boreal forest" compiled from 10 years worth of recordings on different devices.
on MATOMERI side three songs that showcase multiple faces of free-genre/genre/genre.
i suppose this is the 2nd edition? so that means its SO good they had to make extra copies!

D.D. DOBSON: the classic of purity (DX1005)
*excelent, weird muddled abstract soundscapes, mangled field recordings (maybe), messy electronic drones, unplaceable
sounds, odd, creeping atmospheres etc etc from USA 85.
*7e + postages

D.D. DOBSON: generic girls (DX1002)
*trading low metals with holy ghosts, fast messages, an sight, attempt of arson, the game, gods slain & blended into the glass,
having the metal bucket & then melting the mr. & ms. america. thats the story, now you can have the soundtrack too.
recorded in US, 1982 (mono).

DEBT OF NATURE: san salvador day (DX1009)
*of this tape discogs says: it's beautiful, and almost sacred. its also best 30min piece of music released in year 2014. there will
probably be religions in the future (c. 2076) built around this tape.
8e + postages

*grindcore from hungary. same tracks on both side yet different mix and master on A and B. as a professional on grindcore
sound id say the side B sounds better. also needs to be mentioned that the bands logo is such a cryptic one it clearly says
CAN-RODXT on the cover. thats a definite plus. tape is spraypainted black. thats a definite minus.

FRICARA PACCHU: faces faces everywhere (IKASUS-023, 2012 reissue)

GNOM I SNEGOVIK: udivitelniy sad raznoobraznoi musiki (MACRURUS-??)
*this long silver spraypainted + decorated with dingly bright coloured tiny balls tape feels like a russian take on
older JOMF (or NNCK, Sunburned hand of the man, Avarus, even VCO and what had/have you). its free, sketchy, freaky
odd, crude and at times surprisingly moody & atmospheric. highlights include quite cheesy saxophone solo amidst
the confused shouting in russia. so, lets see.. hmm. with groups like this & Polypus Acephalous, Vyazkiy Sharab, Novoe
Tsarstvo, Post-Materialists
.. yes sir its clear - celebrate the forming of the new weird CCCP! very good!

young and hungry or old and starving?

*Concrete and Stepanoff with guitars, percussions, synths/laptop, vocals and piano in Porvoo AD 2005.

3,50e + postages

*C-40 of quite crude, repeatish experimentalism. mostly made with home-made instruments, an fact you can actually sense pretty well
from the tape.
4e + postages

JORGE VICARIO: broken music (JZK030)
*C40 tape that sounds at times like a skipping cd-player with a bit of soul. could be filed under minimal easy-listening
glitch, maybe? dont know if on purpose or not but anyway well fitting for this release, the liner notes are also written
in very broken english. nice listen.

LÖRSSON: lepakkomies helsinki 23.2.2013 (PAS-2)
*quite best, not metal.
6e + postages

LEITMOTIV LIMBO: limbo / wind swept (SM01)
*now, this tape from australia at times resembles so much cabaret voltaires attic tapes that its impossible to not to mention!
stark, minimal,lo-fi, very strange and often just downright creepy soundscapes/songs made mainly with saxophone (or some
suchlike wind instrument[s]), crude electronics, occasional beaten metal junk and blurred vocals. covers look like theyve been
somehow programmed with VCR on a piece of tapestry and the tapes been spraypainted with.. something.

SEVERED HEAD IN A BAG: delayed implantation (GOODALL TAPES DX1012)
*first its 1983 and then after about 30+ years the cars wont fly yet, sure, but there will be an tape on which A side
is a quite harsh and claustrophobic noise piece with buried, anxious vocals and side B pretty long and most bizarre
radio advert for some place called BBQ PIT somewhere street B, USA.. and much, much else. very recommended.

travelling backpack band, mustat kalsarit, sangesuga, köötte

theres wrong funk of disco electronics, theres spastic and noisy guitars and then theres wildly inept drumming
and talk of "getting stuff".

some not so. abstract and ambient and lo-fi and noisey and glitch? maybe.
5e + postages

TULASI / CALIGNE: split (JZK022)
*this particular copy of this C40 split of italian (i think) and finnish cozy & solid new ageish, folkye experimentalism has been
by mistake sent once from finland to california and then back. now, have you ever been to california? buy this tape and youll
never have to go. cheaper AND less hazardous to environment than the helicopter ride you were planning. and musicwise? yes,
this tape has on C side one long song and on T side five songs, one of which is called "imminence of YU55".
4e + postages

UTON: live in death (BREAD AND ANIMALS)
*C40, two live shows recorded in France (w/ Bridget Hayden in Reims) + odd spoken word/field-recording piece
where some man makes it pretty clear that its "OK"... both shows are actually surprisingly noisy affairs, this being
UTON afterall..

VARROPAS: juosten ulos (NO LABEL)
*2015 C50 tape of summer jam(s): hectic stupor.
5e + postages

WOLF FLUORESCENCE: unwavering, achronymous (JZK021)
*what a total name. if i understood the booklet correctly, parts of this was recorded underneath some bridge in USA? or was it while
riding a bus to somewhere? it was in USA im sure.. oddly growing this tape, monotone drone sort of thing that gets better and better
when repeated.
4e + postgaes

VYAZKIY SHARAB: cosmic world of Charles (SPR-002)
*label says siberian mushroom noise but what i mostly hear is odd minimal, somehow slightly psychedelic, not very
electronic experimental lo-fi scratch, knock and humm. its not that noisy. theres also jew,s harp and flute heard in
some pieces. very strange stuff indeed & recommended.
3e + posatges

S O M E V I N Y L S:

AMPH: polar / mongol 12" (sprach 07)
*45rpm from year 2013. two massive droning & falling pieces of concrete, arctic soundcraft. their aproach reminds
me of finnish duo MNEM yet this sounds somehow bit more "planned" and psychedelic without being at all spacey?
is that possible? yep. very, very good listen & truly recommended!
10e + postages

*limited to 98 copies 10" from russia 2014. record comes in a sewn up cloth bag of sorts, insert is transparent silk-screened
sheet made out of something icky wax-like and yellowish.. bit creepy actually! theres four tracks of very dreamy & meandering
yet actual songs with vocals and one track, bit surprisingly, of more experimental & concrete piece called ..well "Piece". good recrd!
16e + postages

GREY PARK: heliosis / severe heliosis 7" (planned confusion 01)
*33 rpm from year 2006, recorded couple years before that. drone or noise or ambient.

GX JUPITTER-LARSEN: big time crash bang 2008 "12 (RRR-001)

weird jolly caribean self-improvement electro. on B side one improvised rhythmic electronic music piece.
5e + postages

NOLLS: losing game / here before 7" (LOT002)
*45rpm from year 2014. two quite buzzing/noisy pop-oriented punk/rock songs made with quitar

5e + postages

POST-MATERIALISTS: moist rita & glyptique 7" (PMM101)
*one sided, 33rpm single from russia 2012. two tracks on side A, "moist rita" excelent, quite Residentsesque,
airy and pretty minimal weirdly smoky little affair of a song with very muffled vocals in what i suppose is russia.
"glyptique" shorter instrumental piece with a nice saxophone motif with confused tiny guitar(?) noise. on side B
artwork and letters on red. silk screened covers, 8 page booklet informing you whats what + yellow voyerism
themed postcard of sorts. solid.

ROGER MILLER: POP Record/evolving 7" (RRR-104)
*one sided 7" playable at any speed (though id say it sounds better on 33rpm..). side A made from parts of records
before the music starts or the grooves between the songs. according to the info on the covers following records were used:
James Brown: Heaven and hell, Frank Sinatra: The great hits of Frank, The ink spots: A new hi-fidelity recording,
Mission of burma: VS., I. Xenakis: Electro acoustic music, Billy Holiday: Solitude, Doris Day: Secret loves,

TAMING POWER: Selected Works 1992-98 10" (EMR-005)

TAMING POWER: Twenty-One Pieces 2 x 12" (EMR-018)
*two LPs worth of experimental electronics, meditative improlike electric guitar excursions, soothing minimal synth pieces,
manipulated fieldrecordings, tape experiments and else recorded between years 1998 - 2009. side B sounds bit creepy
(in a good way) at times but other than that its very, very pleasant & amazingly otherwordly listen all around.
