v/a 'rhythm & passion' (neo rok fanzine july 1989)
summer of 89 at a crossroads as the grind thing was coming to its end at least in the way i (& too many others) we lived it even for that short period of time. earache has launched the morbid angel 'altars of madness' LP and w/out doubt a death metal fashion was coming ripping but already for lots of us the world of obscure musics had been opened via groups we were discovering back then like spk, throbbing gristle, nww, amm, etc etc. thanks to the tape trading scene of the grind/metal scene wasn't too difficult to keep on doing the same w/ the more 'indie' (allow me use this word) scene's net. 'zines were the easiest way to learn 'bout various tape labels, proejcts, mail orders of the time great help back then 'vromia' (aka 'the filth), to ktinos, skies tou b-23 but me speaking it was the 'neo rok'zine of giorgos priniotakis that introduced me to harsh and obscure sounds on one hand but on the other helped to launch my first tape label dedicated to experimental musics 'harsh dept'. guess nothing would have happened if it werent' this compilation tape. launched in july 89 but got acquaint with it almost a year afterwards or less. i was introduced to the sounds of some of my all time favest projects like hands to, city of worms and if,bwana. thanks to this compilation i came in contact with gianfranco santoro (today of the sin org / nailed fame) who back then used to do rattlesnake arena fanzine and run a devastating mail order who introduced me to frans de waard and kapotte muziek / korm plastics, blah blah blah
but let's stop it here as i can talk for hours and hours about this compilation.
you can check related material at the 'no longer forgotten music' blog has nostalgie eternelle (the splt w/ maeror tri), la sonorite jaune and much much much more... it has also the other compilation that changed my life completely too (after xenakis's 'electroacoustic music') the first dry lungs comp LP on placebo. a motherfuckin oddball!
