INK-Reagent Specs-(Monitor Records-USA-2001)

Ink was a minimalist post-rock band from Baltimore, Maryland(USA) formed in 1997 from the remains of Maryland scene bands Candy Machine and Science Kit.
Composed of Peter Quinn (Vocals), Lyle Kissack (Drums), and Craig Bowen (Guitars), the trio released two albums, 2000's Ink, and 2002's Reagent Specs. Both were issued on Monitor Records. By the time the band had run its course, in 2005 or so, the trio had expanded to a quartet and Nat Rabb was being credited as bassist.(info from lastfm)

CONCRETE SOX/DOOM-Concerto Al C.S.A. Udine-(Not on Label-c90-Italy-1989)

Very good recording of this great gig at the squatted social center in Udine(Northern Italy) on the 30/03/1989.
Concrete Sox was a UK hardcore/crust band formed in the early 1980's - broke up in the 1990's. As of 2009, they are reformed by founding member Vic Croll.I am not sure if they are still active now.
Doom  Formed in 1987 in Birmingham, United Kingdom, however, they began as The Subverters, with Bri Doom (guitar), John Pickering (bass/vocals) and Jason "Hog" Hodges (drums). About the time Hog was replaced by new drummer, Mick Harris (Napalm Death), the band changed its name to Doom. (read more...)
This tape was re-released as CD-R in 2010 by those labels: 
Lazypunx Autoproduzioni, Fra Il Di' E Il Fa' Al'E' Di Mieç Il Mâr Autoproduzioni.
The music in this folder is my rip of the tape, I have added the graphix of the CD-R taken from discogs.
I guess this will make happy all the crust-punks around the world.
Enjoy it.

FRAMMENTI-Live El Paso-(El Paso Produzioni-Italy-1995)

Amazing gig by the legendary Frammenti in this famous squat of their home town.
Frammenti plays a fast and ,at the same time, very personal style of HC punk.Their poetic lyrics are mesmerizing.They,quickly, captivated a large community of fans with their powerful shows in the mid 90s.
A band that became imminent cult,somehow.
 The recording of this live tape is pretty good,the cover sleeve reports no info or songtitles.
I have already posted few tapes released by  El Paso , a big squat in Torino(Northern Italy)active since 1987,one of the oldest in Europe ,it is still squatted and very active.Here their webpage.
Enjoy it.

FISK INDUSTRIES-The Isle Of Wight EP-(Highpoint Lowlife-UK-2003)

The real name behind this project is Mat Ranson.Fisk Industries plays a good downtempo and IDM.
This ep offers us 6 nice tracks and it was released in 2003.
Active between 2001 and 2011, Hightpoint Lowlife used to be a London based record label enthused about all forms of new sound. Their releases ranged from glacial drone and engulfing digital sprawls through to half-step bass heavy hip-hop, head nodding distorted noise, and anything else that doesn’t sound quite right!(all the info from Discogs)
Enjoy it.

ARS MORIENDI/MONOKROM-Hexass/First Session-(Fich Art-Germany-1991)

Great split tape with two great projects coming from this amazing German label Fich Art.
 Monokrom is another eardrum terrorist that will trigger some more brain distortions on planet Earth. Metallic bass grooves distorted at wishes, flows of deteriorated machine sounds, over-manipulated and undefinable noise assaults, sharp metallic distortions of the kind found on hostile alien airwaves, relentless scratched beats and vibrating lamenting voice fragments all belong to Monokrom's new order of chaos. Dark atmospheres aggravate to cold, sheer fear; the ultimate threat. Massive beats, torn to shreds by metal splinters, subfrequent sequences, metallic echoing, herald the advance of an inorganic intelligence without hurry, though victory is near. 
 Ars Moriendi [Bielefeld, Germany] were founded in 1989.
Their lineup consisted of various members including: Andrea Börner [KYAM, Monokrom, Templegarden's], Andreas Schramm [KYAM, Monokrom, Templegarden's, Asche, Riviera Lost Boys], Phillip Münch [Cell Auto Mata, The Incredible Three, Mandelbrot, Monokrom, Rasputeen In Heavy Leather, Rasputin, The Rorschach Garden, Show Of Exaggeration, Synapscape, Templegarden's], Sven Pügge [Moata Omen], Tim Kniep [The Incredible Three, Monokrom, Synapscape, Templegarden's], Urs Münch
Fich Art is the amazing label founded in 1989 by the members of Ars Moriendi, Moata-Omen, Asche and T.R.G. to promote their music.
It is still very active and you can get info and news visiting their nice webpage.
Enjoy it.

ZIGANAMAMA-Ziganamama-(Sottosuono-Italy-2000)

An amazing band born in Foggia in 1997 and playing in this cd traditional Balkan songs with their own arrangements, very good musicians, and professional recording.
 I think they are still active yet with a different lineup and probably different instruments too. 
If you are into klezmer music and east European sounds then this cd will make you happy.
Enjoy it.

CALHOUN CONQUER-Lost In Oneself-(Aaarrg Records-Germany-1989)

Excellent album by this Swiss band playing a very personal form of tech-prog-thrash metal.They formed in Zurich in 1987 and disbanded in1993.
Professional musicians, great recording, nice graphics, and lyrics...the mix to become big was all there yet they never became famous and quickly disappeared only a few years after this pure gem, sadly.
Aaarrg was a German label founded by Alex Thubeauville in the mid-80s and now inactive.
For all the fans of Voivod and Young Gods.
Enjoy this masterpiece.

BULIMIA BANQUET-Live A Forte Prenestino il 4/5/91-(Kontagio Produzioni Tapes-Italy-1991)

This is an amazing document about the Bulimia Banquet gig in this famous Italian squat.
This band from Los Angels(California, USA ) plays a very personal style of alternative punk, somehow touching the indie, the math rock, and the hardcore punk.A genial band delivering explosive live performances with funny talks and lyrics.This tape is here to prove it with an excellent recording.
Kontagio Produzioni Tapes was a small distro releasing mostly live tapes recorded in this massive squat(probably the biggest in Europe).
Forte Prenestino is, in fact, a fort squatted on the end of the 80s and still alive and kicking. 
To complete this post I am attaching few nice pics of their gig at the Diskarika Occupata in Foggia during the very same
tour.Big thanx To Giuseppe M. for those pics.
Enjoy it.

Notes 

Re-manipulable interactive music, texts and images

A package designed and coordinated by
TOMMASO TOZZI

DIGITAL INTERACTIVE HAPPENINGS is an anthology of music, texts and images fruit of a team-work carried out by many people who have adopted methodological and creative criteria allowing other people's works to be manipulated in succession. The result: a huge joint cut-up. Networks of musicians, writers, and artists throughout Italy have been teamed up by Tommaso Tozzi to produce music, texts and images by sequentially re-manipulating each other's cue. In the majority of cases, the tool for such creative works has been a computer. All have been recorded in the form of digital data to allow anyone having a personal computer to join the networks and participate in the creation of open-end artistic works. Some works have been carried out and exchanged by exploiting the HACKER ART BBS, a digital data bank which can be accessed via computer and modem.
Writers : Agenzia di Comunicazione Antagonista, Baroni (Rumore), Bedini (Gronge), Branzaglia, Tsche @ Streik (Officine Schwartz), Daolio, Damsterdamned, Decoder, Gasparinetti, Gavyna, Giannuizzi, Gros (Officine Schwartz), Mace (Trap Magazine), Roby One Kenoby (Amen), Luigi e Oliver (Nautilus - Lega dei Furiosi), Perretta, Philopat (Decoder), Pinto, Renzoni, Spalck (Pankow), Storai, Valcavi (Informe), Vitolo, Bramante (Wide Records), Zingoni (G.M.M.)
DIGITAL INTERACTIVE HAPPENINGS has been self-produced by Tommaso Tozzi with the collaboration of:
Leonardi V-Idea (Genova), Neon (Bologna), SiLab (Firenze), Paolo Vitolo (Milano), Wide Records (Pisa).
CD-ROM, book (161 pages) and floppy disk (packed in a single 5 V4" floppy disk-container made of rigid, transparent plastics) has been distributed at the social centers, self-run distribution outputs, floppy-disk shops, bookshops, art galleries and computer shops.
Printed in 1100 copies (sold out).
