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 that Phillip !

Tracklist :

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

Various Artists - La Chair Entre Les Lignes

Cassette, C90
Label : Les Ballets Mécaniques, France, 1988
Ripped by Dualtrack

I've recently been in touch again with Serge Peirat, founder in the eighties of the Marseille-based label Les Ballets Mécaniques, who expressed the wish to see his releases available for free. So I decided to re-post "La Chair Entre Les Lignes", a classic compilation cassette of extreme post-industrial and experimental musics (also released in the US by Panic Records & Tapes), that was ripped and shared six or seven years ago by the now defunct blog Dualtrack.

On Discogs, Serge Peirat has written those comments about that cassette :
"A really interesting tape : most of the bands, here, are doing tapes manipulations, cut-up or sounds collages : Etant Donnés is an amazing artistic duet, full of powerfull poesy and creativity....A must. I don't know if this track "transparente nature" can be found in another item.
Some of the presents bands were very importants and wellknown in the 80's as Smegma, SBOTHI and The Haters. Others, like SWSW THRGHT, Emile Beaulieau (the manager of RRRecords doing a very good concrete music!), Der Akteur and Burden of Frienship (look at Scott Marshall's website. He was the leader and is a really interesting libertarian artist...)are really really interesting.
OrganHouse was doing a very good ritual music : "sumerian charm against Daemons that assail in the Night" is one of the greatest ritual/magical song I know...
L'Akstremauncio was a catalan (not spanish!)band doing a very profound, rich and sincere harsh electronic music. Much more than a standart noise band! Look at their tape "Pogrom a Ashkenas", even the cover is different from the standart industrial iconografy...
Psychodrama, led by the astonishing Brett Kirby was a neo dadaist-provocativ-crazy performers band... "Devil in cabaret" is a good exemple of their best facet.
The others bands, in my opinion, are not as interesting as these first ones.
This tape gives a very good view of the experimental scene in the late 80's (sound collage - concrete music - noisy music -ritual music - out of boundaries music )..."
