Master/Slave Relationship - Interview 1991 [Radio Broadcast Series #5]

Exclusive interview, US, 1991

That exclusive interview was recorded in 1991 by Debbie Jaffe, aka Master/Slave Relationship, after the brilliant "Being Led Around By The Tongue" CD was released.
Those who are interested in the history of Debbie's earliest artistic and musical efforts with Hal McGee, with whom she has been making music in the duo Viscera and has been running the Cause & Effect label, should certainly listen to issues #11 an #12 of Hal's podcast "Homemade Alien Music".
Most MSR releases can be purchased on MSR website.
According to her MySpace, Debbie is recording new music. A short but exquisite new MSR track, "Give", the first musical recording Debbie has done in a decade, has recently been released on "Dictaphonia Microcassette Compilation Volume 3".

Mission Papua Holland - Love You Baby

Label : Mission Papua Holland, The Netherlands, 1987

Mission Papua Holland was a band including two main members, Jasper Frenken and Mark Van Gelder, as well as a records and tapes label. They relased three LPs in 1987. The first one, "June 87", was a great LP of minimal electronic music. The second one is that strange "Love You Baby" LP, more conventionally "musical" than "June 87". And the third one was Roderik Henderson "Generated Progression" LP, a good record of percussive ambient music.

Tracklist :

A1. Presence Dub
A2. Uncle Gangster
A3. Kickin' Door
