Before becoming a famous CD label, Staalplaat was Staaltape, starting in the early eighties as a cassette label, whose "Documentatie Serie" offered both live and studio recordings. Some of these tapes were later rereleased on CD, such as those by NON (ST 00H), The Hafler Trio (ST 00K), :zoviet-france: (ST 00L), Chris & Cosey (ST 00N) or Ain Soph (ST 00Z).
Many Staaltape cassettes can be downloaded on various blogs ; I've decided to post some of the missing titles...

great blog on staalplaat. are you looking for missing numbers? i may have some, like ende shneafliet and bryon gyson


tristan.koreya said...

all missing titles are welcome of course ! i've got a mp3 version of Ende Shneafliet but didn't post it because i'm not sure it's complete. Brion Gysin cassette is very rare and i'd love to hear hear it. and weren't you supposed to post the two Laibach cassettes ?... ;)

the gysin tape is here:
but it's only the joujouka musicians. i will rip the gysin part. i can't scan the entire booklet however.
ST OOU doesn't exist, I asked Staalplaat, to whom I have good contact with the founder.
I see i don't have ende shneafliet either anymore, and laibach i will do myself indeed.
