Cover Januar Mix 2017

Those thin flexible, often square soundsheets called Flexi Discs startet to appear in the eary 1960ies as audio content of books or magazines or as promotional greetings sent by post. Still today, you can find them sometimes in magazines as the recent zweikommasieben Magazin or as a regular insert in Parking Lot. But there are also some labels dedicated to the Flexi Disc, like the Swiss label Flexi Disko. Smugglers Way is a compilation including 5 coulourful Flexi Discs and a 7″ magazine. The sound quality of the Flexis often is not very high and the playback is sometimes quite difficult, but it’s pretty cheap to produce. And, yeah, it’s big fun to play them…

Cover September 2016 Mix

The beginning of the 80’s, dark future waves, industrial melancholia, pop distopia, post-something. All tracks where released between 1980 and 1982, except T.V.O.D. (the first release on Mute Records) in ’78 and the track from Belgian Kaa Antilope made in ’88. Tschik-Mo from Swiss girl band Liliput (Ex-Kleenex) is unusual reduced and less power-pop than most of their other tracks. Reponds Moi from the french synth-pop duo Mathematiques Modernes sounds more like a chansons than the post-synth-punk tracks of their only LP released in 1981. Kind of a wave from the past…

Cover August 2016 Mix

Sometimes while listening to music, birdsong is coming into my room through the open window and mixes up with the music. But sometimes the birds are in the vinyl grooves, recorded by the musicians in the fields and forests out there. Some of these tracks here are pure bird field recordings, like the first one taken from a birds-only records, the last short track recorded in malaysia, the piece by the french band Point Invisible and the recording from Lieven Martens Moana aka Dolphins Into The Futures. The other tracks used birds as sound sources. Arthur Lyman and John Kramer imitated bird sounds on their lps from 50s and 60s or used bird recordings. tschirp tschirp…

It’a an endless thing, the loop, in the best case nobody stops it. Andrew Pekler puts together a lot of wonderful loops, layering, more and more. Dustin Wong loops his guitar play. p0m and Dead Eight combine cassette- and computer-loops, Sesiones Periférico was recorded in Mexico City and is going to be released on the cassette-label Innernoise on June 9th at RaumΩStation in Zürich (with a concert of Dead Eight). Durian Brothers and Strotter Inst. work with modified turntables and records. Francisco López collected end grooved of vintage 78 records and created this track with the loops. Some call it beautiful repetitions.

Mai Mix 2016

Cover Mai 2016 Mix

All this music was re-released on vinyl in recent years. All music (except the Mind Over Mirrors track, wich was originally released on Gift Tapes in 2011) was recorded in the 80’s and released on cassette, though the Gagarin Kombinaatti album (recorded on cassette between 1983 and 1985) was never released. But now, more than 30 years later the album from Janne Koski, Tapio Onnela, Wici Wikström and Mika Vainio was released on double-vinyl by finnish label PUU. The Welttraumforscher Album Die Singende Sternlaterne was released in small number on it’s own Moniflabel, wich released selfmade cassettes since the early 80’s. The Muslimgauze track was originally released on the cassette compilation The Last Supper in 1984. The Breadwoman Album was released 1985, the Charles Cohen Album in ’88, the K. Leimer track in ’79.
Thanks Fred for the shiny idea for this mix and for borrowing the record and for selling all these great records!
