MIAUX: Dive LP

"To those who swam in a lake filled with the bitter tears of Petra Von Kant, drip with salt when Twin Peaks´ heroic theme song comes out of a TV or simply burst out in tears whenever a tune sends you back to the darker corners of your childhood, we got bad news: The first full lenght lp by Sarajevo born Belgian Mia Prce (aka Miaux, say "MIO", not the sound cats produce) is stripped from anything that sounds rhythmic, happy or remotely like "hope" and will not stop you from sobbing!

"Sehnsucht" is a german word that one could probably translate, though that never fully holds the feeling it owns in German. (kraut) monsters like Michael Rother, Klaus Schultze and so on, translated it best with melancholic sound fields that formed the soundtrack of Miaux´s upbringing, a open sounding uptightness, sad but (really) true (to herself).
These 6 new pieces are a relief for a lot of body parts: tears finally leave the bags underneath your glasses, drool finally leaves your mouth and that yellow crust runs out of your ears as those two flappers want to enjoy this lp to the fullest.

IGNATZ & DE STERVENDE HONDEN: Teenage Boys LP

"In the past 10 or so years Ignatz has explored all visible cracks and overlapping layers between (or underneath) folk music, blues, singer- songwriter and psychedelia. It is a pleasure to see him take this beauty to yet another level by unleashing 2 dying dogs to join him as a backing band, pushing his tunes into directions Les Rallizes Dénudés took a left and forgot their mountain of distortion, to end up in a dessert where Teenage Boys dance their first slow.

De Stervende Honden know their place more then well, sending the anxious listener with endless muffled psych bass and primitive percussion into a kennel where after a few bites dream state replaces sense of direction, any moment on this record seems to be one you´ve experienced already.

B.P.: Kerstmis 1980 LP

"The strangest lp in the UE Antwerpian archival series so far! Recorded on christmas eve in 1980 by visual artist and general lune Bruneau, who is illegal about everywhere on this planet, and his pals Tom Van den Broek, Ewald Van Dyck and Jan De Pauw, at the time all creating trouble in the Antwerp scene around the legendary punk/glam basement Cinderella's Ballroom, Café Tom Tom (and Radio Centraal), Café De Mok and so on! The same puddle Ze Barbies were swimming in!

B.P. was rather ambitious in theory, though besides a cassette recording, a stamp, one radio show on Radio Centraal and a list of members (which comes with this lp!) nothing really happened, B.P. was short for a lot of name combinations, such as "Bedrukt Papier" (translated "Printed Paper"), which should have been a fanzine made by these members (which never happened), nobody seems to remember other names, though the original logo also seemed to be the original logo of the British oil and gas multinational, what a coincidence!
Musically this could be a mix of a background tape of Ghedalia Tazartez, and a Trip Hop band recorded by Heath Moerland from the other room of where the actual band is fucking around with self glued record loops, early scratching, and beer bottles!

While not interested in any form of sports (or physical competition of any kind) Dennis Tyfus saw it as a chance to promote his record label/publishing house Ultra Eczema in different circles and to finally also learn about the pleasure of yelling and singing on the side of a footballfield, filled with people running behind a white ball.
The Club also had to be named UE164, a catalog number of Ultra Eczema, that way the team was/is a release on ultra eczema. UE164 is open for new challenges, a game where UE164 crumbles the team of Belgian label Kraak is planned when it is very very cold outside."

MATT KREFTING: Lipstick 7"

"This valley-chameleon changed colours more than David Bowie dyed his hair, which takes a lot of skin, brains and guts in an area that should have been called Noisehampton, a hay fevered pit surrounded by mountains that stare at champions such as Body/Head, Fat Worm Of Error, Thurston Moore, Breaking World, Joshua Burkett and so on, all playing in premier leak!

Krefting was a member of the glammed Velvet rock band The Believers, of the much loved drone band Son Of Earth with Aaron Rosenblum and John Shaw, he writes poetry and reviews, made a singer songwriter album for Ecstatic Peace and on top of the pie he carries cherries with Idea Fire Company! His recent solo record on Bill Nace's Open Mouth records blew my brains out, when I gathered them together again it was more than time to release this crude 7" of tape damage. Much like his work with IFCO, this single is possessed with "Beauty", some sort of weird vague melancholia, a heroism known to those who can't hide their tears when hearing a repetitive key on a detuned piano. Why does the piano need to be detuned? Does that sound "cooler"? It sounds like a lot of other records should sound, but they don't, as most people don't muffle their broken recorder in between two pillows while playing in a room on the other side of the road. Why does the recorder have to be broken?

This 7" comes in a blue risograph printed collage by DT, Printed at Risiko Press and is limited to 150 copies."

VAAST COLSON: Tekstwerk Voor Hoboken 7"

"Art-Fort / Fort-Art" is an annual art happening around the old Forts that surround Antwerp (in it's subburbs Wommelgem, Mortsel, Edegem and Hoboken).

For the 2012 edition, the Antwerp based chouchou, Vaast Colson aka "Justice Just", created a text piece, milled out of an old canoe boat, saying "Ginds weet men raad" ("Yonder one knows ways and means") and a finger pointing in the direction of hope. This canoe was laying on the side of the pond around Fort 8 in Hoboken.
A group of fishermen who considers that pond "theirs", were unhappy with the canoe laying in their way, and a bunch of complaints followed, therefore a small note with a phone number on it was added to the piece, so people could ring up if the canoe was in their way. The people that called the number ended up with the voicemail message you can hear on this record.
limited to 15 copies, handcut by Peter Fengler, the b side is a peel of silkscreened photo of the artist, the sleeve is rather minimal and silkscreened by Gerry Herman."

ORPHAN FAIRYTALE: SECRET BEACHES / FATA MORGANA 7"

"It is hard to top Orphan Fairytale's "comets come alive" lp on blackest rainbow, which i consider one of her best works to date and most probably the best record of 2012, therms such as "bummed out", "sad", "melancholic", and "psychedelic" are thrown in a baby blender that gave birth to this depressing lollypop!

So, stuff competition in the closet again, this new Orphan Fairytale single is happier than you and me! recent times OF's live shows have been more and more rhythmic, exotic and even danceable at times. the melancholic mayonaise that is always on top of anything eva creates is leaking on her bongo's, the voices that spin out of Princess Fairytale's brainpudding only seem to be hearable on vinyl, not when she's shying out in the dark corners of the last pink house in Antwerp!

for those who want to see who's who now, or wanne compare lenght before getting into the shower after your footballmatch, this recording reminds me of early instrumental Moondog, slow Muslimgauze without the political bazart, and Zero Kama when he replaced his real human skulls and bones collection with some toy skulls.

I've met various people on other planets that i could compare to friends closer to home, Bill Nace calls himself a "fat Vaast Colson", Vladimier looks like Phillip Quehenberger, Tarp's Conrad Capistran's laughter sounds simular to W Ravenveers grinning and so on.. It sounds lame, though there is only one Joshua Burkett! no one looks away when they get a candy, Burkett does, but ate it before you've noticed there was a big brown chocobar in front of us!

There's a rare melancholia to everything J Burkett does, pressed behind a shell of shy music-encyclopedic psychedelia, the only way i like folk(s).
Footnote(s) is recorded live between 1996 and 2005 around the area where Burkett lives: Western Mass in the USA, as u might know already, a pool of experimental musicsnot with bears such as Fat Worm Of Error, Matt Krefting and Body/Head biting trees to pulp!

BERND LOHAUS: El nacimiento del huevo LP

"Bernd Lohaus (1940 in Düsseldorf; † 5. November 2010 in Antwerpen) was a German artist (living in Antwerp/Belgium) mainly known for his sculptures, usually made of heavy found wood which he minimally changed (by carving in one word poems for example). He was a student of Joseph Beuys and together with Hugo Heyrman, Panamarenko and Wout Vercammen one of the first "Happeners" during the 1960's in Belgium, organising street performances in the centre of Antwerp. They published "Happening news" and together with Anny De Decker, Bernd Lohaus started one of the first Belgian avant garde galleries "Wide White Space", where they showed work by James Lee Byars, Joseph Beuys, Marcel Broodthaers and other knallers!

This one-sided record carries a recording of an early performance by Bernd Lohaus, recorded during a happening in his exhibition "El nacimiento del huevo" at "Sala de exposiciones de la asociacion cultural iberoamericana de Madrid" between 30/01/1965 and 04/02/1965. Absurd poetry meets Spanish lessons, meets dead silence meets sound poetry meets surrealism. While in Spain in this period Bernd rang the doorbell of Salvator Dali, this visit must have had a big inpact on him. The photo's of a young Bernd that come with this lp will show you why.

Comes in a fold open silkscreened cover with photos from the Bernd Lohaus stichting, + comes with a extra risographed insert. Limited to 200 copies, and made in conjunction with the beautiful exhibition of Bernd Lohaus at Mac's in Grand-Hornu (23/06/2013 till 06/10/2013)."

 While most bands from around here played straight forward punk, Ze Barbies played in a sloppier non music/no wave style, mainly thanx to the wasp synth blasts that interrupt the double delayed female vocals, most probably influenced by their friends " DE BRASSERS" from hamont!  The (unfindable) drummer for Ze Barbies also played in NOISE BOYS 906 and Marleen (one of the singers) was very active at the time with her fanzine "de ontgoochelde frigo",and as a dj at radio centraal and at cinderella's ballroom, Antwerp's most legendary glam/punk/transvestite heaven. i'm way too young for all this crap and you are probably too!

ANNY DE DECKER & STELLA LOHAUS (opgejaagd door Dennis Tyfus)
VLAAMSE BLOKFLUITEN Nos. 1&2 5"

"This 5" (limited to only 20 copies) was a part of the exhibition "ik verhuis naar hand (brult)" by Dennis Tyfus, at Tatjana Pieters gallery in ghent (15-01-2012 - 26-02-2012). Stella Lohaus (who worked with DT as a gallerist for 8 years) and her mother Anny De Decker (who started the Wide White Space, the first avant garde gallery in belgium with her partner, artist Bernd Lohaus in 1966) started playing flute together after Bernd Lohaus died in 2010.

The flute is one of the easiest instruments to start with and therefore part of the music education in Belgian high schools. However, to get to the level of playing more complex pieces, it takes practice. "Vlaamse Blokfluiten" (Flemish flutes), a video installation of 10 parts, shows Anny & Stella playing the sonata of Händel. The videos are in loop and capture the protagonists from several angles against a background of old-fashioned wallpaper. The loops are presented on several TV-screens spread out over the exhibition space. The cacophony of music that stems from them creates a quirky and hypnotizing atmosphere. the 2 pieces on this limited 5" record collect two different versions that weren't used in this video instalation."

REI HAYAMA: A child goes burying dead insects (one sided) LP

"a rarity, while not being in higher atmospheres of any kind, the film "kodomo ga Mushi no shigai wo umeni iku" aka "A child goes burying dead insects" forced up a third sleep state, third dream state and third reality check.., wishing the colours were really the colours one would see everywhere, instead of the discusting digital prints or pixelated madness that get shoved up our body holes! it makes me wonder if i am really here right now or if i had seen the film before 2009 which is not possible as it was made in that glorious year..
this soundtrack of japanese film maker Rei Hayama, her main concern on film is about the relations between wildlife and present humanity, she is a co founder and organizer of (+), a experimental screening project in japan. this soundtrack is driven by a beautiful japanese folk loop, blown over by a HNAS type of sound collage, primitive in it's set up, and sliced open by Rei's own angel type of vocals, like a creepy lullaby.

MIAUX: AERONAUT 7"

"Buy a box of tissues! It has been a while since Miaux has released anything, as everyone around Antwerp, where she is based, still had tears in their eyes from hearing her last 7" on ue, or her self released cassettes which were hardly playable as they layed in puddles of salty tears for way too long!   Miaux, the moniker of Mia Prce, was born in 1982 in Sarajevo, where she lived until she was 7 years old, both her parents were painters and visited Antwerp, Belgium with her, where they've ended up in the vibrant art freakscene around Ercola, one of the oldest artist collectives in Antwerp, based at wolstraat in a old hospital in the centre of town, a space where Mia got used to naked hippies rolling on the floor during their happenings, and where she got hooked on her father's cassettes of Embryo, Neu, Brainticket, and Roxy Music, while the family wanted to move back, the war started at home which is why they've stayed in Antwerp forever!

Bored with not understanding any other children her age, Mia started pushing her fingers into a casio she got at age 5, later to be classically trained on piano by a woman with a backwards wig on her head! The music of Miaux remains very melancholic, like if Neu's instruments were stolen on tour and replaced with 1 casio with a red lamp buzzing "LOW BATTERY", it still fits in the only movies i like to watch. all the rest is a waste of your time!

MARCEL VAN MAELE: I hate music!!!!!!!! LP

"i better warn non flemish speaking creeps first: This archival lp of belgian poet and visual artist MvM is a Flemish spoken word lp, so don't expect to understand any of it!

Marcel van Maele was a poet, provocateur, and visual artist residing in Antwerp, Belgium. He was, to say the least, not a very common poet, much like his friend Marcel Broodthaerts, MvM was always seeking for new or different ways to present his poetry resulting in bottling his own poems or stuffin his books in glass pots filled with spirits! The last 20 years of his life (MvM died in 2009) Marcel van Maele was completely blind, which didn't stop him from performing. He used a small dictaphone, a "souffleur", which he referred to as his best friend, to pre-record his poems sentence by sentence, so he could repeat them with headphones for live performances. this one sided lp starts with a live performance like that, dating back to "Nacht van de Poëzie" in Utrecht, Holland, in 1987, on this recording you can feel he carries the whole audience on his middle finger! Besides that, this lp also contains a dialogue poem with his wife Carine Lampens, an excerpt from an audiozine published by the blindenbibliotheek and private diary recordings MvM recorded for his wife when she was on a holiday!

this lp comes in a black and white sleeve with photo's from MvM and Carine Lampens' archive and comes with with a stencil printed insert, the B side contains a silkscreen!

not much of his recorded sound poems were published, there's some "verbosoniën" on a AH compilation the dutch poet Herman Damen published, and there's one piece on the swedish monster "text-sound compositions: a stockholm festival 1969". while digging through Gust's archives we only found some tapes with "Verbosoniën" on it, recorded mainly in the 60's in sweden and at home, and one tape with a sound poem on it called "De stem " (the voice), which is very different from the other pieces, and recorded in 1982. this publication limited to only 15 copies was made for the "Gust Gils in duo" studyday at the university in ghent, beginning of december 2012.

the old skool dead pan electronics, plunderphonics, parodies, noise blasts and synth madness that VIOLENT ONSEN GEISHA or HAIR STYLISTICS released, have always been accompanied by titles and artwork that made you doubt if it was even necessary to listen or look at anything else, much like the lafms box on rrr now that i think of it. bullshit of course, like every record announcement!

When i visited Tokyo in January i accidentally met Nakahara in a recordstore, we mainly communicated in sign language but he did remember that i asked him to do a record some years before, he sign languaged that he was bad with sending stuff in the mail and asked how many days i would stay in Tokyo, i made the rather simple hand gesture of putting 3 fingers in the air, which he replied to with the words "A side tommorow". As accidentally, i bump into him again the next day carrying around the A side in his pocket, all made on that day with a heavy flu, which is hearable on the lp, a stripped down heavy dim sum of collaged tapes, mini electronics, coughs, sneezes, and ants! his big synths etc were all locked up somewhere. "B SIDE ON MONDAY", which was the day i left, the legend goes that Tokyo airport had to call my name on the speakers as Nakahara brought the master to the airport, seriously a minute before my plane left to belgium again that monday.

BOB & LOU: five tracks 1991 - 1993 LP

"one of the earliest cdr's on ultra eczema was a Bob & Lou cdr, which were also recordings from the 90's, and which, together with discovering the insane recorded archive of cassis cornuta, sparkled the idea of collecting and publishing the lost recordings of these belgian weirdo's! Bob & Lou is the pseudonym for the duo field recording / electro-acoustic synth project that Peter De Ceulaer and Luther Vanhoof started in the late 80's. They never played live as Bob & Lou although both of them also played in SPACECACTUS, a loose collective that would play live and build side specific soundart installations. A lot of the Bob & lou recordings were used in radioplays they would construct for Radio Centraal in Antwerp. Bob would also record most jingles for the radio and was the chairman there until he sadly passed away on october 30 of last year, therfore this record carries a incredibly typical "centraal sound", since i got obsessed with this insane radio station this strange combination of library space music, radical satire, fassbinder, klaus schulze and percise field recording styles has not left me ever!
The obsession of hunting down the right microphones, synthesizers and self build metal instruments in combination with the ability to build, mix, cut and paste and change any existing format resulted in a amazing recorded archive and a giant studio where no one but Bobby Colombo could find his way around...

This record is limited to 200 copies and comes with a "real" photo, developed at the colunst house, a fold open space poster and a sleeve with more archival photography on it."

this one sider is a recording of the long string instalations he build for his first exhibtion at ICC in antwerp, it is a archival recording from 1981. metals, strings, feathers and springs amplified by isomo creating a weird psychedelic ball of confusion.

CASSIS CORNUTA: 25 jaar de gebraden zwaan zingt LP

"after some years now, a archival lp of cassis cornuta is a more than welcome break!! basicly the only archival material of him availble is the double cdr he did 5 years agao or so.
DE GEBRADEN ZWAAN ZINGT is daniel renders' weekly noise radioshow on radio centraal, since 25 years this show has been mixing recycled music, private recordings, broken records, tapeloops, field recordings and a ton of noise! this record is a small collection of recordings made exactly 25 years ago at home in antwerp, using cassetteloops, cassetteplayers whose buttons when pressed in a particular way allowed for variable playback speed, tunrtable (16, 33, 45 , 78 rpm) whose driving wheel could be deregulated to produce extreme slow playback or complete manual control of the record movement, feedback mechanisms, radio noise, radio signals, piano, copper pipes, cans etc..
very primitive bagger that brings to mind early blockaders etc

EVIL MADNESS: cafe cicago LP

"things were different in thailand a few years back, since it's inhabited by the sleazy christophersons or lou de preycks of our time, you can not just enter cocktail bars anymore without showing your ID! the idea is simple and plain though: watching the sunset with purple sunglasses and a fresh strawberry diahreah with ice in your hands while listening to classic german kraut or early kraftmenship from the same country! sliding over the autobahn while dreaming away on the analog waves of throbbing 80's fueled synth blubber! knowing that everything is gonne be alright while putting your icecold hand on her warm wet bibs!
this record is the summer hit of 2010, a heroic soundtrack to staring into nothingness! the ideal trigger for a change of times! and especially the absolute tribute to krautrock, early german electronics, and later spin offs of neu, harmonia etc.. the band michael rother should have been in! an absolute "super group" with morthound's BJ NILSEN, classical mad scientist JOHANN JOHANNSSON, roadchief PETUR EYVINDSSON and intense visual artists and STILLUPSTEYPA members HELGI THORSON and SIGTRYGUR BERG SIGMARSSON!!

BIRDS OF DELAY: the cut LP

"you'll have to run thru a intense long brown tunnel before arriving at the best butcher in town! he'll cut your meat down to pure droned filet americain or preparé from the chef! bears and bowie lookalikes are huge fans, as this bird butcher sliced many famous animals since a young age. he grew from playing cards in the bar with the big nuts via pinching fags in the parc to a full blown fine line worker!
spin him around and you get a conceptual artpiece, back to the old skool game of throwing cards on a table! poetics re-invented by dolle smurfen repeating the same word over and over again, until you eventually get it and snap, which usually takes a while. a perfect summer bummer for boiling brains and unusual double pleasure! classic tones, properly sliced feathers, and intense poetics.

FLORIS VANHOOF: time slime LP

"some creatures have too much energy, too much energy even to be caught on a picture, by the time the machine sez click floris vanhoof already ran off, cutting and glueing 56 meters of lurid 8 and 16 mm film together to create a cluster of filmloops all playing at the same time and interacting with a slimeball of thick synth/tape madness! a full time member of stoner ensemble R.O.T., though solo-soundwise very different, a full time visual artist and a full time body and synth builder/connaisseur! a lot to be full time, though stronger than the tape holding his filmloops or the elastic holding my stockings.

this records is a collage of home brew synth madness, fieldrecordings, detailed registrations of floris throwing a full drum kit 20 times of a staircase in a church, coincidences and liters of delicious tape delay spun together by a man who only eats fast food, as eating the real thing would take too much time, time that could be spent on more important things, like digging dick raaijmakers, art history, synths and long forgotten sound carriers!
finally, the first lp by one of my favorite belgians! after a bunch of self published tapes, cdr's and films it was about time!
limited to 300 copies, comes in a bright purple/black sleeve design by dennis tyfus and with 2 inserts, including the scores for these 2 side long pieces!"

PIERRE ELITAIRE: de schepper 7"
unpleasant size 03

"this year PIERRE ELITAIRE turns 50, about time for the oldest dj in antwerp to have his own 7" out!!!! in the 80's pierre and daniel (aka cassis cornuta) were the first and only weirdos in town buying and deejaying ACID HOUSE! they would play it on radio centraal, would always have the newest and strangest stuff and quickly started playing live acid themselves after getting a bunch of 303 roland basslines and 606 and 808 drummachines!

a mountain of twats started copying these genuine acid freaks selling it as if it was their own invention.
this 7", with a dutch parody of "the creator" on the a side, is a definite tribute to the original acid crew in belgium, mentioning cj bolland, olivier abeloos, acid marcske etc., and played classicly raw through a tiny amp, a 303 and a 606!! the flip side is a version of nicky trackx' "acid in the house", covered solidly in dutch by one of nicky's biggest fans..

NOISE NOMADS
s/t LP

"the first time i met jeff hartford aka moose jaw aka NOISE NOMADS was around 4 years ago in providence, a tense looking bear putting a mic in front of an amp, leaving the audience alone with a whale of feedback, pretty pretty pretty confused!! he walks out after cranking open the amp, a minute later a giant REAL christmas tree walks through the audience trying to find the way back to the amp, kicking people over, i guess this show was right after christmas time and jeff found it somewhere or he stared at a young kid that was about to decorate it..
i was very impressed by his show, both sound and performance wise, there was a seriously intense vibe there, felt like he could snap at any given moment and squeeze you to death with a christmas tree..
noise nomads' live sets are always strange, confusing and amazing, an amp iiiiiiiiiiiiiii-ing while the man goes running around the block, a mountain of amps that start talking after he picked a fight with them, a sludgier drummer does not excist.
it was definitely not the last time the man amazed me, his duo set with PAUL FLAHERTY (which is released on american tapes), the loner car rides i shared with him to his area in the valleys of northampton, his amazing monthly zines and tapes, his drumming with grey skull, his drawings etc..
it's a total psycho package; everything is there; visuals, sounds and a great dude!
the first side of this record was recorded a bunch of years ago and is just voice and tascam! an amazing swollen beast of sound poetry, gargling waanzin, and muffled barking! the b side is the same dude a few years later on his knees in my livingroom screaming through a bassdrum and a contact mic attached to a bunch of pedals, harsher than a prison full of parrots about to be released!
there should be more paintings like kim gordon's NOISE NOMADS!!!

this first one could actually be an lp! as usual with noisecore, grind or mince, this one has more tracks on it than 5 lp's together! 10 songs by each band, agathocles drills holes in your skull and pours in a cocktail of assgrinding diarrhea recorded on a rehearsal right before their mexican tour! this is no fancy pants studio recordings but the raw tapedeck deal, muffled grunts and painful fastness. on the flip side sissy takes it away with some gerogerigegege styled noisecore shaving off your nose and eyelashes, feels like the recording is actually sitting in a giant amp!!!!! a brutal slap of preparé right there!

LEO COOMANS
BASEMENT RECORDINGS 1978-1982 LP

"a while ago one of the members of the youngest antwerp based free jazz band sheldon siegel (all 16 year olds..) visited me, i had just met them and he wanted to come by to get some records. we spoke about free jazz for a while, then he said the magical words "my dad use to play free jazz in the 70's as well".. i was like "ow, and if that was in antwerp, was it with wim?", he said "yes yes, he's on one of their tapes with fred van hove, ivo van der borght etc". my heartbeat went a little faster, wim only made one tape as far as i know, which is the weirdest thing they ever did, a bunch of the free dudes from those days playing as a brassband!! it seriously sounds disturbing. i pull out the tape, open it and asked "is your dad leo coomans?", he starts shivering and his eyeballs turned backwards, i called an ambulance, they pick him up and tell me i can not talk to this guy for a while as he is heavily epileptic! the doctor kept asking me "what the hell did you do the him", i said "i just showed him this tape"..

although i wasnt allowed to join him i sneaked into the hospital and woke him up, yelling so is this your daaaad or what? he said, "yes and he doesnt even have that tape", so i dubbed it for him and asked if he had some other solo recordings from those days?

leo coomans then compiled a bunch of unheard and beautiful basement recordings, collecting the period he mainly played in the antwerp jazz and artist bars!

when putting it on i expected some decent free music, relating to the other freaks from antwerp from those days, my mouth fell open though that this rather modest man made seriously strange outsider weirdness instead of free jazz from hell.

kicking of with aerosol, duo undertone singing to a aerosol machine he had to use for his asthma! watermuziek, playing with a bunch of tubes, saxophones, mouthpieces and his own voice in a bath tub half filled with water! untitled droning harmonica pieces which clearly shows his link with raga folks like wannes van de velde and such! vacuum cleaner attached to metals and soprano saxes!! a wacko paino and vacuumcleaner cover version of louie louie...

i hate to say it, but this realy is a treasure!

the cover design is 2 live shots, one of which he uses the aerosol machine. it also comes with an insert with more photos!"

CARLOS GIFFONI & HIVE MIND
CLAUSTROPHOBIC WRECK LP

"lthough it's better than prison, it still isn't easy to live with two guys wearing an ankle bracelet, in the smallest possible wooden cabin somewhere in between New York and Detroit. There's no food anymore, tap water is not drinkable, and eating each other's intestines seems to be the last enjoyable possibilty. The thick dense sound of synth throbbing bubbles up from these hungry bowels. 2 synths fighting their ways to better times, though right now everything looks pretty dark, gnarly and industrial, classic heavy synth waves, rhythmic madness and electronic sadness.

CHRIS CORSANO
ANOTHER DULL DAWN LP

"When Chris Corsano turned 6 years old, I already begged him on my wounded knees to record an LP for Ultra Eczema. He played it cool, was clearly annoyed but remained polite. From then on (he is now 46) I would email him the same question daily. I slept in a tent in front of his house, sent him letters every week, had all his different cell phone numbers, I even gave him new clothes, though he kept wearing his fully blue outfit. Much like Michael Jackson, Corsano, the last drummer on earth, always remained calm and polite and made this full on incredible LP of absolute madness played on different drum sets, toy percussion, baritone sax mouthpiece on a 2 foot metal pipe, violin strings, banjo and violin bridges, contact mics, effect pedals, claw bell, metal strips from windshield wipers, toy comb, clarinet, toy gamelan, guitar cable, gongs, metals, triangle, nylon guitar strings, amps, melodica, pot lids etc. In every collab he played in (with Bill Nace, Thurston Moore, Spencer Yeh, John Olson, Eric Thielemans, Bjork, Byron Colley, Blood Stereo, Paul Flaherty, Greg Kelley, Idea Fire Company, etc.) he always changes things and never sounds the same.

Corsano, together with all mentioned collaborators above, changed and refreshed improvised music forever, blew the "free" into free music again, threw an energy molotov cocktail over western Massachussets, and has a non-academic and unlimited interest in sounds far behind any traditional free music school! This LP is a collection of most of his different techniques that blew you away when you saw him play live.

IDEA FIRE COMPANY
BEAUTY SCHOOL LP

"During my last visit to the states, about 2 years ago, one of the highlights was definitely a night long visit to Scott Fousts house! John Shaw took us there and explained from before what it was gonna be like; we would be seated down in a comfortable couch while the last great man would stand up next to a pedestal with some quality whiskey, dope and cigarettes on it, sporting a mono-coloured suit and sunglasses (day and night) while Foust is telling stories about different art records, and mainly his own work, ranging from short films, visual work and audio since 1978! It was exactly how Shaw explained it. I was blown away by the honesty and the effort him and his ladyfriend Karla Borecki put into their work, and how little response they get to it. We shared a common interest in arrogant pop quality, and especially the situationists, to which he relates his work to in only aesthetic way! I think it is a quality in people when you cant divide their work with their persona; Idea Fire Company is a collective of people that definitely swing that robe! Beautiful carpets of radio bleebs and static, piano (Karla Borecki is a trained pianist) and almost kraut-like synth ambience. Comes in a mono coloured sleeve full of dots by Dennis Tyfus, and comes with an insert. Limited to 300 copies."

CASSIS CORNUTA
mag ik eens even in uw broek pissen LP

"since 69 years i've been begging daniel de wereldvermaarde botanicus, aka CASSIS CORNUTA, if i could please start a second recordlabel which only releases recordings from his archive. this botanic's modesty is an absolute exception in times of an overdose of recorded farts, since 1974 CASSIS CORNUTA combines musique concrète, analog synthesizer carpets, weirdo acid, noise, fieldrecordings, tape music, free jazz etc in a puddle of madness spiced with odd staring, dozens of plants (cacti to be more specific), a encyclopedic knowledge about soundart, and an insane collection of hats!
besides that, daniel does a weekly radioshow on radio centraal in antwerp since 25 years, mainly playing a combination of recycled music, home recordings and a hell lot of noise!
this lp is playable on more than 4 different ways, depending on how many extra holes daniel drilled in each record by hand! some records contain 3 extra holes, some around 20.. none of the lp's have just one hole, that would be selfish.
another beautiful collection of loner synth sound that makes your hangovers or lsd trips worth going for, the strangest beat oriented 303 and 808 acid snoop, and a combination of piss, wind and wood to bring back the good old plunderblur of the new blockaders.

LA BAMBA LP

"over 15 years ago daniël de wereldvermaarde botanicus (hat and cacti collector cassis cornuta) deejayed a ton of horrible la bamba versions for 2 hours in the now defunct situationist radioshow rtvs (radio centraal -antwerp). the "galdezen" of rtvs yelled/sung along, creating their own versions of la bamba while getting more and more hammered or naturally gone from a bamba trance!

after telling me this short story daniël mumbled "i always wanted to dj all night long la bamba, i think it will drive people insane", this idea expanded into making this international compilation lp , which was made for the ultros exemos la bamba night(mare), february 28/2009 at scheldapen in antwerp. that night daniël deejayed over 300 different versions of la bamba, only to be interluded by a giant lineup of artists performing a live la bamba rendition!

ORPHAN FAIRYTALE
LADYBIRD LABYRINTH LP

"Orphan Fairytale is the solo moniker of Eva Van Deuren, member of the lady folk troupe Maskesmachine, who started blowing my mind 12 years ago as a street performance troupe in Antwerp. Besides my own ladyfriend, I don't think I know anyone better than Eva, and her boyfriend (Audiobot madman) Carlo Steegen. For some reason this makes it even more difficult to write a decent description for this record; we live in the same mansion, and I could write a lot of stories about doing the dishes together, or putting the garbage out. Orphan Fairytale is a dedication to Eva's mom, who died when Eva was 14 years old. A melancholic soundtrack to the loss, and a way of dealing with it! A maze of ever-changing Casio trips dripping with childish ecstasy, a belly dancer oozing for endless adolescence playing with burned dolls in a Barbie house filled with pedals and looptapes! Melanchotronic folk reminiscent to some Moondog, the contemporary Finnish crew, Delia Derbyshire and Asian pop. This LP comes in a full colour collaged cover design by Dennis Tyfus with 2 inserts. Limited to 400 copies."

WOUT VERCAMMEN LP

"Wout Vercammen (1938) is a highly influental visual artist from Antwerp, Belgium. A nonstop performer since the early 50's, described by Ludo Mich as "the Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde from Antwerp. A tight dressed dandy, going bananas every night, and looking as tight and clean the morning after". He has been inspiring the Belgian underground art scene for more than fifty years. He was the youngest artist making real paintings at the end of the fifties. Abstractionism reduced to one gesture. One sweep. One movement of the sword. One twirling horizon… Pulling Hokusai into space and time, Vercammen organised and executed the very first happenings in Belgium in the early sixties. Great collages, the only real pop artist in Belgium, latex word paintings, pneumatic forms before someone else got bigger with it. Always on the move. The way Wout Vercammen acts, performs, talks and moves is perfectly captured on this LP! When living in Antwerp, chances are you witnessed a Wout Vercammen performance without even realizing it, this is possible at any given moment. Smuggling jenever into prison, painting the copper dome of the Carolus Borromeus church white, filling blue garbage bags with air, and especially howling like a wolf, primitive throat singing and using the whole bar as a percussive instrument!!! Wout Vercammen changes reality, and makes it a tiny bit better.

This record is a collection of accidently recorded "moments" and a composition of a black, a yellow and a red paint bucket all shook up through a synth and a 4 track! All varying from percussive punk primitive madness comparable to Kommisar Hjuler, a strange conversation in a garden to soundpoetry, howling and screaming. I am absolutely psyched to release this, as Wout Vercammen along with Ludo Mich has always been my favorite Antwerp psycho! Reminiscent of Ludo Mich, Kommisar Hjuler, the Vienna Actionists, Hans Krüsi...

The LP comes in a offset printed sleeve with pictures of the artist, an insert with more pictures and liner notes by art critic Hans Theys! Limited to 400 copies."

modular synth carpets at its nastiest! you'll be purring when you're on the actual boat.. thick like your mommy's wallet, yet sparse droning that'll get you more "out there" than bob marley at his vaguest. 2 pieces pushing your brains to one side if the volume is right.

YELLOW BEARD LP

"I have been begging the Massachusetts based acidfolklorist Joshua Burkett to do a record on Ultra Eczema for years. I met him through Ron of Sunburned Hand Of The Man about 5 years ago, when they did a duo radio session at Radio Centraal, which later got released as a Pewtr Trust CDR on UE. I was struck by Joshua's mix of shyness, amazing and heavy acoustic guitar playing and his encyclopedic knowledge of weirdo music. His music is usually so silent that it makes you all tense and walk on socks instead of wooden shoes. The Yellowbeard LP is a collection of adolescent/teenage recordings made by Joshua Burkett between 1990 and 1994, probably right before the time he joined Wayne and Kate Village in Vermonster! Some of the recordings were overdubbed in 2008.

This is a beautiful collection of collaged scrambled bedroom madness, teenage wilderness, guitar noise, acidfolk, almost psych, organ fuckery, space between the tape deck and the player, outsider beauty!!!!!!!

This LP comes with a glow in the dark sticker and an insert in a neon yellow/black fold open silkscreened cover design by Dennis Tyfus, limited to 300 copies."

PREGGY PEGGY / THE LAZY BABYMAKERS
GET AN ACE CASE OF THE MEASLES LP

"While my face drips with pus, yellow soup, manjuice and morning youghurt, i finally got an injection against measles, which I also suffered from until i found out about Preggy Peggy and the lazy Babymakers (both thru a cdr on the great CHOCOLATE MONK and on Preggy's own "being weird isn't enough records"!), I thought they deserved it more then I did. As a "prize" I could release their record inspired by the subject matter. Which became a beautiful audiobook like a madman's guide to alienville! The medicine these chaps have to use makes em sing in different colours and add styles to eachother that never heard of eachother's existence. PREGGY PEGGY AND THE LAZY BABYMAKERS basicly got started because of ANGELA SAWYER's (Boston based psycho recordcollector and owner of the great WEIRDO RECORDS store!) compulsive need to overdub a mountain of voices over a mountain of strange instruments played by JA, the other PREGGY who aparantly "lives on one of New England's gray shabby beaches with a couple of miniature fluffy dogs"! They never play live, it is probably pretty impossible to do live anyway, and style wars it sort of comes near SUN CITY GIRLS jams with FRANCOIS DUFRENE, remixed by a Texas hill billy.. both members were in a mountain of bands noone ever heard of, such as; Pig Sex, The Pie Plate Band, The Cool Breeze, Jet Jaguar Backing Band, Phenomenological Boys, Stick a Fork In It, Laser Laser Laser Laser, The White People, Cough Syrup, The Saliva Sisters, Giacinto Scelsi Tribute Band, White Cocaine, My Son's Coloring Book, The Whoop Whoop Girls, Jimmy & the Waffles, N.

AVARUS
TOOSASSA LP

"When you go to Finland, a country where 95% of the population is inbreed, chances are that you will meet at least 7 members of the Avarus family! You can smell them from a mile away, they're the adults raising their kids on homebrew white spirit, continuously producing the kind of farts you can't hear though the stench is worse than the ones that sound like a brassband. Behind every Finnish tree there is a member of Avarus humping another Avarus member, and rarely a Kemialliset Ystavat member (the other 5% of Finns). The governement of Finland is not proud of this sick family, they try to keep it silent, rarely give interviews to press from other countries and make sure planes hardly fly out. Though for some reason Arttu Partinen, Roope Eronen and Tero Niskanen made it as a trio in a small boat to the USA. The only instruments that made it were a few balloons and a crappy casio. On arrival they found a microphone, a drum and more toys, climbed the WFMU building and played the craziest session ever! Like a bunch of children discovering the 50's euro avant garde scene, the 60's psychedelic free jazz and pre-punk scene, the 70's sound poetry and punk scene and the 80's disco scene in one afternoon!! This LP sounds like a mix of all of that I guess. Limited to 300 copies, comes in a psychedelic duo coloured cover by Dennis Tyfus."

LUC TUYMANS & MIROSLAW BALKA
CRAZY HORSES LP

"This is a tape recording done on September 24, 1998 on the day of the exhibition "privacy" at Fundacao de Serralves in Porto, by Belgiums biggest contemporary painter LUC TUYMANS and Polands giant brutal sculpturist MIROSLAV BALKA. This recording took place in the building and garden of Fundacao de Serralves and Porto Palacio Hotel. The basic idea was to record the sound of running horses for a collaborative public sound sculpture by both artists, however during the process other sounds (such as drunk Venezualan singing, "vacuumcleaning", rambling, and discussions about Maurizio Catalan and the snake of jungle book who by the way "has a very stupid expression on his face") landed on the tape which changed the running horses into crazy horses. This record is released for the "involved" exhibtion in Shanghai, curated by Phillippe Pirotte. Limited to 500 copies, B-side features an etching by Tuymans and Balka."

DE NAGALM OP DE KOPF! CD / NEWSPAPER

"besides the people that i owe a trade and the people in antwerp that wanne piss in my neck because my tale is longer then theirs, there's a mountain of people that actually wanne hurt me physically because they sent me a master of inbelievebly great recordings years back that everyone should hear, though it takes frigging ages before they actually come out.

"de nagalm op de kopf" is a compilation like that! a collection of sounds that represent ultra eczema pretty well although some of the recordings on this comp are over 5 years old! a variation of odd, "funny", retarded, great, noisy, free, off, loud, harsh, sad and brutal tracks by noise nomads, krystal knight (aka jessica rylan aka can't), hacky pack zac sac, mudboy, cement future, happy mother's day i can't read, cards on my cunt, prurient, ex members of josh hydeman, cloaca & vom grill, xo4, burning star core, kites, defneg, tumble cat poof poofy poof, trashbusters, anthro rex, eric boros, bloated ego and the compliments, mouthus, mix ape synb, orphan fairytale, unicorn hard on, muslux, grey skull, black tie rubber pussy, god willing, bobby colombo with silver cindy & jb de kunst!!!

MENSTRUATION SISTERS
SHOULD SISTERS SUCK? LP

"i don't know a rabi that yells as high pitched and psycho then nik rizili! and i don't know another guitarist besides oren ambarchi that can make strings sound like yiddish yelling! they do sound like ladies that have their period non stop, since 5 years! and they do sound like they are 456 km away from the hospital while the head of a baby is forcing it's way out of a mangina. so much stress, and strings so loose on a guitar that u can put both your legs and your two arms between the strings and the actual instrument. a hyperactive and creepy and slow carnaval of absolute madness! reminiscent to the more sparse parts of harry pussy, the screaming of hanatarashi. limited to 300 copies! comes with a insert, a small poster, a sticker, an etching on the b side, and found footage cover art by dt."

DYLAN NYOUKIS "THE THROAT IS PREGNANT"
DENNIS TYFUS "ZANGSTONDES"
SPLIT LP

"this record is all about flipping the coin. flipping the coin of persistence and patience. a heavy endurance test pill to swallow and right on time for chilly winter nights. dylan nyoukis is back on his grind. and a toothcrushing experience it is. going back to the old school vocal perversion the chocolate monk president is known for. i met the bearded one at the beach in brighton for the first time, where dylan was sipping dirtcheap beer and gargling bits of slayer lyrics while pointing directions to his crib. a retarded brew of high and low pitched vocal scruff, muffled sonic slime and lungs full of asbestos dust from sitting in a cave of obscurity for the past twenty years. he will sing for wine or ass candy and likes visuals that piss on the hi-brow. total no-fi cassette trouble and underage kids chewing on dusted tapeloops, basically more science fiction that the inflatable puppets in munchies. then the needle stops moving and we hike to belgium.

tyfus drools in the microphone and let's his bodily juices make contact with translation delays, empty kleenex boxes and the power that controls the earth's core. constant knob tweaking, contact mic'd cheese balls, endless layers of mutilated throat sounds jump across the circuitboard like mechanical ants. there's a lot of weird information to absord here. besides the vicious ragtime gobot action, there's a gentle more furry choir medidation zone that will trance your brain muscles over the rainbow. highly influenced by aborignal ways of life and the medidative nature of throat singing, homo sapiens tyfus spit out a true projection of his tormented soul. apparently there's a difference between music and sounds ?

SPACE CACTUS
2001 A SPACE CACTUS LP

"a puddle of gross sound poetry, ran thru some mentally ill reel tape machines more then once, then re worked again and again and again and again", is how you could describe the first SPACE_CACTUS lp in their 20 years existence! when i sent the master of this recording to the pressing plant, the people there asked "is it possible u sent us the wrong audio file, we can only here a voice soundcheck". SPACE_CACTUS on this record is the infamous BOBBY COLOMBO (who, you could say, is the overall co-ordinator of space_cactus in general) together with cacti and hat collector, instrument inventor, and happy space maker CASSIS CORNUTA. though for every project SPACE_CACTUS has different line ups. this lp is different then their usual massive analog synth set up, only voices, prepared voice and reel tape machines are used for this recording. over the past 20 years they have rarely played live, only choose specific occasions for live shows, such as the "30 seconds of spacecactus" at factor 44, or soundworks for exhibtions. they have mainly focused on recording radioplays, jingles, film soundtracks, etc., one could sort of compare space_cactus with the bbc workshop, though S_C is more raw, satirical and brutal! this lp is limited to 150 copies (8 copies luxery edition, the rest numbered and stamped to 142 copies) and comes in a fold open double sided silkscreened coverdesign by dennis tyfus, screened by jean prutpoes.

ANGST HASE PFEFFER NASE LP

"ANGST HASE PFEFFER NASE; glistening inn lp very very excited to anounce the first lp in 10 years by masachussets based ANGST HASE PFEFFER NASE!!! pretty much 9 years it took to make this album, i can not say i know a lot of people that have the patience to work on one thing that long, maybe i am mistaking hyper neurotic action with patience here though...ANGST HASE PFEFFER NASE is the moniker of CHRIS COOPER a multi instrumentalist, cat and moustache toucher, neologist and member/guitarist or ex member/guitarist of bands such as DEERHOOF, a duo with BILL NACE called BUDDIES (though nace would love to see that name changed..), TURBWASN, FAT WORM OF ERROR, BARN OWL, CAROLINER etc etc etc...probably this is one of the most intense and most "filled" records UE released so far, a percise collage of beautiful sound made with more instruments then a parrot could handle, such as Plastic guitar, bass, clarinet, banjo, optigon/organ,egg slicer, ratchets, broken toys, fan motors, whirliegigs, glasses, tape loops..etc. poor rabbits quickly hide when they see the red head with the twitching eye play his tunes with more then 34 hands at the same time, this could be the soundtrack for some seriously fucked up road circus, dead rabbits crawl out of a lazy elephants hat while a sad tapeloop of a rotting harmonium plays your uncle vomits fave cough sirup tap dance blur, oozing for some romantic noise crackles, the nostalgia of the banana fish days putss him down in his cough again wheeping like a black cat on an attic in new jersey! ANGST HASE has previously released 1lp, 2 7"s, some comp tracks, and a recycled tape for rrr. reminiscent to some caroliner, kemialliset ystävät, hans grusels krankenkabinet, etc. full colour cover art/collage and full colour insert by dennis tyfus. limited to 500 copies."

ERIC THIELEMANS
A SNARE IS A BELL LP

"this is the first in a series of solo percussion lp's on ultra eczema, titled sts! though this piece is written for only a snare drum and a tiny bit of vocals (resonating with the snare drum) it sounds like either 20 people on a snaredrum or like a choir, and by the end definately like the sound of a whitehouse lp. this piece is based on a snare roll which changes 3 times. the b side is a psychedelic etch! eric thielemans is based in antwerp/belgium and has made percussive pieces for theatre, has played psychedelic guitar music with mauro pawlowski, spaced freemusc with sickboy and cassisini division and a ton load of great freejazz with andre goudbeek and peter jacquemyn. this record is limited to 500 copies, has an insert and comes in a duo coloured psychic design by dennis tyfus."

JOS STEEN
MUSIC FOR TAPE AND TURNTABLE LP

"Jos Steen is a remarkable outsider in the purest possible sense of the word. Telling stories about the dude always sounds like theyre untrue or seriously exaggerated, the way he lives sounds like a fairytale and the way he acts would resemble the heaviest mix of Bukowski and Bobby Colombo. Jos lives in a tiny house underneath a radio tower of the national TV and radio station VRT, where he works as an audio librarian. The house is built on the highest point of the area in a forest. You can see it from miles and miles away. Its tiny but can be called a museum! It is full of homemade instruments and broken pianos, amazing wooden stringed instruments made of garbage and all kinds of foreign instruments no one remembers the name of. Since around 1964 Jos has been making poems, stories, paintings, collages, drawings and music/sound to kill the demons in his head or jam along to their forceful blues. Some call him the Belgian Beefheart and the people that already forgot about Beefheart talk about a local little Howlin Wolf. Jos always made self-released zines, tapes and more recently, mountains of CD-Rs of homemade blues, broken bottle experiments and heavy free music folk. This LP is a selection of tracks of a recent CD-R of tape and record player experiments spiced with vacuum cleaners, rotting voices, undefinable strings, pianos, etc. Its absolutely unthinkable his work could be potentially lost in time and space, for fucks sake, the dude is a genius! In the past, Jos played with free jazz greats like Peter Jacquemin, André Goudbeek, Yvo van der Borght, with poetry psychos like Roland Topor and Freddy de Vree, and with Zappas own Jimmy Carl Black who begged on his bare knees to play with Jos ... well maybe thats exaggerated as well. This LP comes in a gold and white cover by Dennis Tyfus and an offset printed insert!"

XO4
LOST SIGNALS LP

"the trio of bill nace, john truscinski and jake meginsky deliver their fourth spars, spaced scratched and creeped record, after their debut cdr on audiobot, an amazing tape on bill's own inprint "open mouth" and an lp on ecstatic peace. although this band uses only 2 guitars and percussion they've built up a paradise of tension between instruments that by far dont sound like you'de think they'de sound.. it does sound like someone is pulling your veins gently, softly focused on not realy hurting you but having chinese torture in the back of your brain. a no named peasant would guess this music was made by an old dog collecting thousands of little pieces of metal, knowing exactly what they would sound like if u rub them onto another miked metal closet or a circuit bend old wooden clock. sensitive guitar molesting is never far away. i've heard the master for this record about 50 times before releasing it and still recognize new sounds in it. there's a lot of space on here, and it's realy hard to figure out which instrument is which, not that it matters, but i did think "what the hell is this sound made of". besides xo4 and his solo work, bill nace also plays in a duo with chris cooper, in vampire belt with chris corsano, and in northampton wools with thurston moore. he also does amazing drawings, books and open mouth records/tapes. both john truscinski and jake meginsky also do amazing solo work! this record comes in a collaged cover design by dennis tyfus, limited to 500 copies."

"please translate all the titles and our names in flemmish" KOMMISSAR HJULER asked me for this record, this records continues the german couple's satirical aproach to fluxus, dada, outisider art, whatever u wanna call it.. KOMMISSAR HJULER is a police officer from a small village in germany "flensburg", where he lives and works with his younger wife MAMA BÄR and their kids. MAMA BÄR is a full time painter. the KOMMISAR only started making music when he was already in his thirtees, heavily influenced by the strange music he had been collecting since the age of 16. almost all of their music got released on their own SHMF inprint, mostly limited to less then 20 copies and always packed in handmade collages, paintings or even giant puppets or garbage melted together.. they've done a bunch of collabs with greats like RUDOLF EB-ER and JAN IWERS. this lp includes three long tracks; a hysterical cover version of suicides' frankie teardrop, a piece about the bronx (with some guest vocals of their kid crying..) and a side long screaming argument between a granddad and a kid which sounds so painfully loud and "german" that every touring band will want to skip germany in the near future.. this record gives you a pretty good introduction of what they're all about. KOMMISSAR HJULER and MAMA BÄR's way of working reminds me of people like BOBBY COLOMBO, SCOTT FOUST, RUDOLF EB-ER or even GIL J WOLMAN. it's the last one in the ultra eczema 6 panel fold out cover series, limited to 300 copies."

VOMGRILL
S/T CDr

"All barbeque references aside, you don't have to like animals to embrace synths. Tyfus makes his t-shirt wet and connects the substantial with the impossible. Like a nutty Vangelis bringing forth a goof dipped swaggering pressure. A transition into surreal cheesecakes, wrinkled foreheads and gay bombs over Ibiza. Radical behaviour might be dying out in other cities, but in Vomgrill's hometown Antwerp, local retards still help it thrive. No money in the bank but a stuffed hedgehog on the desk that never kisses the asses of the masses. Heavily influenced by electro-acoustic awareness, mid 80's strobe muscles, back-and-forth stereo holla, spiked metal logos and space age monkey brains. Like meeting a cat in a thunderstorm thinking about suicide. Tyfus spits out emotions like they're early morning Albany pancakes. Thick and juicy on the outside, pitchblack and lost once inside. Most of the Vomgrill tracks are created out of sheer luck, a bit like puttin' together Wonder Mike, Master Gee and Big Bank Hank and baptizing 'em as Sugarhill. No nappy headed ho shit but on the next level tip with black & white keys just like xerox. After vivisection and violence, and before variation... Another footnote in Antwerp's cosmic history and well worth a dime or two. You say one-dimensional ? Eat mud. Tyfus locks doors with all eyes closed. No MacGuyver but he has a blueprint for every situation and a back-up plan made out of cheddar. Music to give girls and icegrill to, if she doesn't smile back you can always throw some d's on that bitch. Cut the fingers off your gloves so you can feel. If you have enough energy stay up late. Dennis is loud. No cold turkey, he'll keep you up all night. No Transformers chit chat either but foreplay, orgasm and wine sipping rolled in one disgusting carpet blunt. Shit hurts.

"this is the second in a series of edmond de deyster (who sadly died in '99) archival lp's. edmond de deyster left an incredible amount of reel tapes behind, full of beautiful analog synthesizer music. his family was kind enough to share this archive with us.

it took me way longer than expected to get this second installment together, partly because i wanted to interview his relatives and other people who knew him during the years these tapes were made. frankly, time flies by too quick, and i decided to release this second lp first, and do all the interviews for the third release in this series. this second lp got selected from 2 reel tapes that were in the same box as the ones from the first lp. one of them mentions the same info as those first ones, "1975", the fourth tape didn't mention any information. i'm not entirely sure if these recordings were made in the same period, though they sound more like the previous stuff then like anything from the upcoming releases; incredibly sad and lonely synth tunes.

EDMOND DE DEYSTER
SELECTIE 01 LP

"I was blown away when I got access to the extremely big archive of this Belgian analog synth king, a ton of reel tapes were left behind, a bunch of them not mentioning and information, a bunch of them not mentioning a vague date. Edmond De Deyster was a rather shy nihilist, who didn’t even tell his own family he was making music until the late eighties. He never released anything because he thought no one was interested in his psychedelic synth sounds. Sadly he died in 1999, the last 6 years of his life he didn’t record any music anymore. This is a first selection of his archive, taken from 2 reel tapes mentioning 1975, no other info. I hope it’s the earliest recordings he did, but I am not sure, as it’s possible that the reels that don’t mention anything were recorded at an earlier date... His early stuff is comparable to the more symphonic sounding synthesizer waves and tones of Conrad Schnitzler for example. Beautiful dark synth explosives, blurry and squirky layered sounds, I wish this was really and endless record spinning all day long while I’m "working"!"

Paul Flaherty used his long grey beard to start the fire and blew as high as he could with a rusted tenor and alto saxophone, the flames went high, but not hight enough for Chris Corsano aka the last drummer on earth! Chris throws oil and lighter fluid on there to spice up the barbeque a bit. This is a beautiful live recording by these two amazing free jazz musicians from Massachussets/USA. It sounds a bit different than their other recordings as it is indeed recorded in a church. It has a thick/full natural reverb on it which gets fully adopted in their music!!!
