...and one more Selektion cassette this evening.... This is the first of two cassettes by LLL that appeared on Wahrnehmungen, and the only one released on Selektion. One side of their other cassette, Schlagt sie tot! was reissued by Vinyl on Demand as part of their Wahrnehmungen 1980/1981 3LP Boxset.
LLL (aka Joachim Pense) made a few other appearances on compilations and also as source material used by P16D4 including a track on one of my favorite compilations from the 80's - Bruitiste.
When I archived all of these cassettes a while back this one initially stood out the least to me. Now after listening to them all again, I think I enjoy this one the most.
Four of the five tracks are over 10 minutes long and most are very stripped down in their instrumentation (electronics, bass, keyboards, location recordings...). As a whole this tape is similar to Vanity label. One track (B1) especially reminds me of Tolerance and perhaps Cranioclast's longer ambient pieces.
