Balance Of Terror (aka Minóy) - No Fats, No Fems, Uncut (1990)

Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#40], Ivory Coast, 2014

When I posted the only Minóy tape I possess (Nightslaves), exactly five years ago, there was nearly nothing on the net about that artist. At that time he was still alive. He died on March 19th 2010. After his death, his life partner gave his audio archives to Phillip Klingler (PBK) who then discovered many unreleased recordings. Phillip has been looking for labels to release some of those mostly never heard before complete albums after having carefully remastered them. He decided to offer two albums to Nostalgie De La Boue. "No Fats, No Fems, Uncut" is the first one. It was recorded in 1990. Phillip has also created a Facebook page where interesting documents have been posted. Thank you for all Phillip !

Tracklisting :

1. Who Killed Fassbinder? (29:14)
2. Money, Power, Government, Lies And More Lies (29:06)

Vox Populi! - Aither +

Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#36], Ivory Coast, 2013

Last months have been a prolific period for Vox Populi! re-releases, as will be next ones. After "La Cathédrale Morte" (net-release), "Ébats Spirituels" (net-release), "Half Dead Ganja Music" (LP), here is the net-re-release of "Aither", the second Vox Populi! LP from 1989, with 3 unreleased tracks from the same period, all remastered by Axel Kyrou in 2013. "Aither" sounds like a synthesis of the different music styles the band has developed during the 1980s. It was originally released by Visa, a famous french independant label, and some of the tracks were included on the "1987-1990" CD released by Infrastition in 2008, but the entire album is available again for the first time.
More is coming. Very soon will be released "Funk Off" (CD), a compilation of early 80s tracks by Vox Populi! and Pacific 231. And finally, in the fall of 2014, Vinyl-on-demand will release a Vox Populi! vinyl boxset (2LP + 7" for members) with 130 minutes of music from the 1982-1988 period, including their complete first LP "Myscitismes" from 1985.
Again I want to warmly thank Axel and Mitra for their inspiring music and their generous politics of sharing.

Tracklisting :

1. Djamileh (4:47)
2. Tik & Tics (3:36)
3. Le Nénuphare (2:48)

Rudolf with Various Artists - Stuhlgangblockaden

Label : Nostalgie De La Boue [ndlb#35], Ivory Coast, 2013

Rudolf is certainly one of the most important artists of the international experimental music scene since the end of the eigties. With his musical projects (such as Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock) and his Schimpfluch label, he brought very original contributions to that scene that is too often marked by imitation and repetition. One of his most interesting early releases was the R&G "Stuhlgangblockade N!" LP, a classic of sound recycling and dadaist collage that uses sources from around thirty different artists, who had themselves recycled R&G material. In 2012, Rudolf edited a shorter version of the LP for an art exhibition in Zürich. Here it is.

Tracklisting :

1. Stuhlgangblockaden (17:12)
