VA - Cabbage Part 2 (Cauchy Productions)


I noticed that tristan.koreya posted Cabbage Part IV a couple months ago. That's a great comp with equally ridiculous cover art.  This is the second installment from the series.  I'm particularly fond of Asmodaeus' work(so much so that I added an image to the blog, of the mythical demon).  De BBO, Man's Hate,  Unovidual, and several others put in good efforts here as well. It's your expected mix from a Belgian tape of this period moving from synth/experimental/punk-post-punk and other directions as well. If any can provide Cabbage Parts 1 and 3, please drop a note.


ConGen - New Dramatic Electronic Music


This is one I'd been wondering about for a long time.  Legendary German synth icon meets New York downtown oddball artist, strange music ensues.  To my knowledge Gen Ken has dabbled in audio throughout his career, examples being Gen Ken & The Equipment and a pretty cool Greatest Hits LP on De Fabriek (Man from Mars being a standout track).  There's also some very early cassette action in the 81- 84 time-frame that I'd love to hear if anyone out there has these.

About this LP, side A contains a dotting of tracks that remind me of Moebius' Tonspuren on Sky label.  Side B appears to be an incomplete 8-part piece that never really breaks.  Hence the reason I left it as a single track.  If you look at the insert there are titles to some sections, but it seems intentionally incomplete, almost a tongue-in-cheek thing much as I feel the album's title may be.

The Last Man in Europe Corporation - Songs From The Ark


I happened to notice a lot of people looking for this one in the comments of other blogs. So here it is. I think you'll find it sparse and quite staid compared to A Certain Bridge.


Arvid Tuba - K*ss Covers


These are not my rip(thanks Jim) but they are semi-hard to find now. I think they were posted to a K*ss fansite back when they were made around 99. Also on a doublecd from master Tuba.


Various Artists - Neue Muster Volumes 1 & 2


Not going to say much about this one. Pretty monolithic grouping from Tonspur and the first of the Neu Muster series which goes up to at least 7-8.

Volume 1 - Side A
Volume 1 - Side B
Volume 2 - Side A
Volume 2 - Side B

Ann Summer - Baby Doll Play Suit



As Mutantsounds said it when they posted my rip:

"Totally unknown wierd electronic /minimal synth tape.Glintchy streched out synth sounds sometimes pop-ish(well a certain way),sometimes dark and wacky.If this was released in the 70s it would have been an excellent library music LP ,in the vein of Delia Derbyshire or Cecil Leuter.In all terms awesome!"

Not sure I agree with the library music statement or not, it has a bit more subdued angst than that.

Thanks Tor Sigvardson for doing Neukoln and 18E:Oktober!

VA - Embellishment Collection 2 (2nd Edition) (MC,borft033,1991)



Here is the cassette follow-up to the fine LP Embellishment Collection I on the legendary Swedish label Börft Records. Ranges from cut-up,noise, through industrial, to the blip-blop of Frak and some synth-not-so-pop scattered about.

Several of the usual suspects with highlights from Sirius b, Konkurrenterna, Njurmannen, Enema & Gejonte, and Gas, IMHO.

This second edition was in a series of 50.

Martin Newell - Songs for a Fallow Land


Inaugural post to what is sure to be a "lite" blog of relative obscurities.
I'll update with aggregator host links later. For now RS.

Martin of Cleaners From Venus released this beauty in Spring 1985.
