Human Flesh - The Third Human Attempt Cassette (Insane Music/Aeon) 1984

I'm back temporarily to post a cassette that I archived before my computer broke down that has been sitting in my Rapidshare folder for a while. So, here is an early cassette from Human Flesh aka Alain Neffe. This cassette is brought to you by the Kaiser (aka Mark - DJ for DC events - DC Soundclash, Taking the Piss and Procedure). He provided two other Insane-related cassettes for archiving/posting, but I am allowing him to write commentaries on those before posting.

No time for descriptions today....

My home laptop is currently 'in the shop' - I expect it to be ready in the next couple days and hopefully then posts will be back to a greater frequency.

V/A - Autoplasie Cassette (Nuit et Brouillard NB 01) 1990

Finally, another post. This is a later cassette compilation on the Nuit et Brouillard label from 1990 titled Autoplasie. The cassette includes a 56 page 8.5"x11" booklet including features on each contributor including discographies.

There is a wealth of information contained in the booklet. Many smaller releases, primarily cassettes that I had never heard of when I picked this up years ago. I have since found some of these releases, but there are many more I would love to track down (Vox Populi Live/Studio & Live/Interview cassettes!!, for example). There appear to be 300 copies of the cassette, 200 that include the booklet.

The music is primarily industrial, sometimes ambient or dark, other times rhythmic. Prior to archiving this cassette a while back, I hadn't listened to this tape in years and forgot that there are some pretty good cuts here. Contributors include Brume, Vox Populi!, Deleted, Free Mount 231 (Free Mount & Pacific 231) and others (see photo for line-up).

One question - does anyone know why Brume makes a point to mention "no sampler" in the liner notes for his tracks? Is this supposed to be impressive? There is plenty of music like this made during the era before samplers....

I hope to pick up the frequency of posts going forward - my personal computer is still down, but will likely be repaired this weekend. Another volume from this label with similar packaging (tape & large booklet) titled Interaktion will probably be posted once the computer problems are resolved.

A copy of this cassette without the booklet is available at Atlantis Records (check the links on the sidebar).
