Label : Unknown, France, circa 2007
Ripped by Rainier

I don't know much about that CDr. According to Rainier, it has been released one or two years ago, but did not get a large diffusion.
Exeprimental piano + sewing machine music, a little in the Nurse With Wound genre...

Vox Populi! - The Teen Recordings

Unreleased recordings, France, 1979-1981

When I wrote Axel Kyrou that I wished to post the debut Vox Populi! cassette, "Introduction À La Théorie De La Subjectivité Relative", he answered that before I do so, he would like to offer earlier VP! recordings for sharing. He also sent the visual above and wrote the following statement to introduce these recordings :

'The Teen Recordings' were recorded between 1979 and 1981. These are the first and, yet, unreleased recordings by Vox Populi! As the title suggests, I made them during my teens (I'm from 1964), with some help from my elder brother Ariel on vocals, jaw's harp and percussion. I play synth, radio waves, video games, tapes, bass, guitar, jaw's harp and voices. I must say that we had a very encouraging family environment. Our father Ado was a great fan of any kind of unusual and extreme forms of music. I remember very well my father's PA being blown out by one of the first Whitehouse recordings ! He was a TV/film director and a writer. My mother Mireille is a musician and she had worked under Pierre Schaeffer's direction for a few years at the institution that became soon after the IRCAM. For sure, they were on our side and they did help in many ways. A big Thank is due to them.
I hope you'll enjoy these goofy DIY recordings made with very little means.
Wishing to you music lovers all the best,
Axel, for Vox Populi!

PS : apart from Nostalgie de la boue, you'll find many other VP! releases on 3 other musical blogs :
It is our deliberate policy to make most of our music freely available. Vox Populi! returns to Populi, so...

The Legendary Pink Dots - Live In Paris, Rex Club, 6/02/87

Cassette, C90
Live recording, 1987

I've recorded that live concert myself, with the band's authorization. At the end of the concert, I met a guy from the audience who asked me to send him the live recording, which I did once back in hometown ; a few weeks later, he sent me the cassette cover I've included in the rip. I've never really known (and never asked) if it was a personal cover he made for himself or if he used my recording for an unofficial bootleg cassette release...
Anyway, that was a wonderful concert, and I hope the sound is not too bad...

Tracklist :

1. A Dream Is A Dream
2. Love Puppets
3. Curious Guy
4. Jewel In The Crown
5. Premonition 16
