V/A - Reissaus vor Krach und Chaos Cassette (Selektion SC 007) 1981

This is the first of a few cassettes I will be posting from the Selektion label. Reissaus vor Krach und Chaos was originally released on the pre-Selektion label Wahrnehmungen as either catalog # W 016 or W019, according to different pages on the label's back catalogue. This copy is on Selektion. Regular cassette package with fold-out insert.

Artists include P16.D4 (and related Permutative Distortion & P.D), LLL, Rogalli, Kasperle Killerpilz, Kurzschluss, Der Apathische Alptraum, Les Crepes, El'A and Ertrinken Vakkum.

For those of you who have enjoyed the Vanity label posts (and they seem to be the most popular by d/l counts) you will probably like this. Minimal electronic, some with, some without guitars & vocals.


Update: Here is a link to another compilation cassette on Selektion - Offene Systeme, posted by dorfdisco braunsfeld who runs another fine music sharing site.

The Selektion stuff doesn't get the respect it deserves, I think. Thanks for offering these rarities.

The Vanity stuff is great too, though I luckily got most of it here in Osaka about 10 years ago.

I hope to make some digital copies of the following 7" flexis soon. Let me know if you need any.

Max V Mathews's "Music V" - The Magnetic Field of the Earth (Vanity 200)

V/A - Phone tische Poesie (Vanity 8101)

Holger Czukay - Jun 3 1981 Guitar Solo (Vanity 8201)

Magical Power Mako - Music From Heaven /The Clap & 公転 (Kouten) -Time Unit (Marquee Moon MM-0005)

Goebbels/Harth - I Don't Bend, I Never Turn Around Marquee (Moon MM-0007)

John - copies of any Vanity flexis are greatly appreciated. As is the Dada LP.

Hope to have more Selektion tapes up over the next few days (and then I'll get to the Vanity cassettes next....)

Are you still in Japan?

John said...

Still in Japan. A return to the States looks bleaker and bleaker every day.

Not many goodies show up here anymore. However, when they do, they can be rather cheap.

The "Eardrums shall fail" blog said:

"Remixing is raised to art status when you give new life to music, any type of music. To see potential in a boring cut, to push the envelope all the way to different galaxies, to let your mind wander where the original intention left off - all this presumes passion and marquees lighting up over your head as opposed to a mere lightbulb. A writer, most of the time, is a passionate reader first and a remixer of words second. Tago-Mago does that with music. I may not like each and every track but that would be a strange and new feeling anyway. Rarely have I heard a reinvention of music I was, or thought I was, familiar with, in such unexpected ways. His major influence is Can, and the mixes are inspired by a variety of hip hop and electronica artists."
