    Sympathy For The Record Industry got the lion's share in the 9th part of U.S. 7s.


    Zu Zu's Petals - Babblin' Mules/Shipwrecked
    (Susstones IMS 547, 1990)
    Zu Zu's Petals were 3 girls from Madison, WI. They started in the "riot-grrrl" era, but even in this (their first) single, I can see that they tried to be different. They managed to put out some 7s and two LPs, until 1994, when they disbanded. Their singer Laurie Lindeen wrote a book about those years (Petal Pusher) and is now married to Paul Westerberg. You can see a video of her
    here. ... Read more »

    I suppose I'm an artist or at least I'll get you to think so

    Simple and minimal songs, played mainly with synthesizers and sequencers, but also with real guitars, bass and drums. It's definately a curiosity in the post/dark scene of Los Angeles in the late 80s: a trio, Aliz, Gigi and Robert, possibly art students, created this record of tribal/vocal drone ... Read more »

    Deus Ex Machina - 1991 - Motorpsycho

    Tracks :
    1 Inspiration
    2 Mass Media
    3 Motorpsycho
    4 Unreliable
    5 Even If We Lose
    6 Curious
    7 Chase Me
    8 Deus
    9 Execute *
    10 Iraq'n'roll *
    11 False Promises *
    12 Killing My Name *
    13 December *

    Review :
    The band's first release came as a violent punch in the stomach to the unsuspecting Greek scene of 1990. Raw and romantic at the same time, established Deus Ex Machina as one of the biggest names for the years to come until today. A true classic! Current CD includes fully remastered original album with bonus tracks of long out of print band singles, complete with extra rare, older material previously released on compilations only, plus the infamous "Execute/Iraq'n'Roll" single.

    Between exoticism and melancholy, dream and nostalgia, autumn lights and shadows and hidden joys, The October Country is the land of delicacy, of sensibility, of elegial lyricism, but with an element of detachment and nonchalance in the appearance and fading of colours, the anxiety of not immediately perceptible things.

    This is one of the lost diamonds of the 80s. If you run through my posts, you'll see that I avoid to use this term, but this time I have to. In a future 80s re-issue wave (like the 60s reissue storm we have a few years back), this album will be regarded as one of the most underrated of the era.
    Released in 1987 by the very cult Insight Records of San Francisco (label of Eric Cope, founder of Glorious Din - see the posts in Fritz Die Spine and Phoenix Hairpins for their two LPs), Thickly Settled was the sole album of a Detroit, MI band (not to be confused with an industrial-electronic L.A. band of the 90s with the same name - a common misunderstanding - with which they had nothing to do).

    About Spahn Ranch from their myspace site
    Spahn Ranch was formed in August of 1986 in Detroit, MI. Although the name would suggest a connection with the Manson Murders, the band had no affiliation. In it's infancy, the band played in many local venues on the bill with various local bands. Quickly a strong following developed, which immediately precipitated a self titled cassette release of six tracks on the Ikthus Netw ... Read more »

    LAFMS: The Lowest Form of Music
    "The unearthing of the LAFMS recordings is experimental rock history at it's most historical and hysterical - a completely bizarro and further-out counterpart to the L.A. punk scene."
    ~ Thurston Moore

    ~@~@~

    The LAFMS was a lightning rod for pre-punk & non-punk musical whatsis from all over the globe. This compilation deals primarily with the associations core members and their good works, but one of the LAFMS' prime functions was to transform itself ... Read more »

    Somewhere between the Graveyard and the Ballroom, in a place defined by late seventies industrial Manchester and early eighties New York sunsets, at a point between the old and the new, they found their feet. Formed during the ampthetamine-crazed soundwave that was Punk UK 1978, taking in influences from teutonic technotronicers Kraftwerk, powered by Wire and holding court in George Clinton's Funkadelic house of Parliament, A Certain Ratio took to the stage.

    Intense and diverse, and originally drummerless, they released their debut single in 1979 - "All Night Party/The Thin Boys" through Factory Records, a label set up by Rob Gretton, Alan Erasmus, and Anthony (H) Wilson. A highly prophetic choice o ... Read more »

    Non is essentially the one-man project of noisemonger and provocateur Boyd Rice, whose solo work is virtually interchangeable with that released under his Non alias. Rice's first work, originally titled The Black Album, consisted of looped bits of girl-group and bubblegum songs worked into a numbing drone; it was released in 1981 by Mute under the title Boyd Rice. Subsequent Non releases like the antagonistic Physical Evidence (1982) and the textured noise of Blood and Flame (1987) pushed the limits of aural accessibility. A compilation of Non's '80s material, some of it non-LP, was released in 1991 under the title Easy Listening for Iron Youth. In the mid-'90s, Rice has revived Non often; 1992's In the Shadow of the Sword focused on social Darwinism, while 1995's Might! was an opus of musically backed poetry inspired by author Ragnar Redbeard's (likely J ...
