Hallowe’en Special 2019
And here a full Halloween Show from 2002;
And a great collection of years of special releases for these and more occassions like X-Mas :
Wonderful mash-up of graphics and one of my all time fave’s found on the interwebs per accident. Made a few years ago by someone called TruthForTiki. An official video was never made.
Late November finally one of my all-time favourite tape only releases got reissued; the 1992 HAX tape ‘Carceri’ of Marco Milanesion’s DsorDNE project – freshly remastered by the Maestro himself. A personal highlight of 2015.
On another note, concerning his more current works the renowned portugese label Thisco issued an EP consisting of 3 tracks constructed out of original soundwork developed by (r), as Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo his partner in crime at O.F.F. audioprod & studio in Turin, Italy.
The experimental EP published under his current alias 9CENTO9 can be found alongside equally interesting Releases by Simon Crab (Bourbonese Qualk), Rasalasad (Walt Thisney a.o.) and Martin A. Smith here as part of a new digital only Release series.
An in-depth interview/review/feature can be found here……….
Canadian born Nash The Slash retired a few years ago, on May 10th, aged 66 (!) this senior of independent category crushing left completely.
Honour him if in need for a great evening & don’t miss out on his 1980’s “Children Of The Night” as a solid starting point.
A special Helloween release by former Bauhaus, Love & Rockets member David J is the very first acceptable rendition of the 1979 classic proto gothic dub ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’ played to death by generations now “.……..this dark melancholic exploration was recorded live by candlelight in a single take.” An atmospheric approach with “signature post-classical piano from noir chanteuse Jill Tracy.”
Listen and Enjoy or grab it if you can – for $ 0.99 via his bandcamp site it’s a bargain and you’ll never know how long it’s available until the next Collection of rarities will be compiled.
On another note; there’s a bit more in the coming concerning Bauhaus’ legacy. Not wanting to mention Beggars Banquet’s Archive’s careful edited and restored 5 Album Box Sets of Love and Rockets & Bauhaus nor the Daniel Ash 3CD Box Anthology, nor the various Peter Murphy expanded Reissues – but David J’s first solo Album which was last issued in 1990, Etiquette Of Violence.
This reissue will be available in late November as a lavish deluxe 2CD Set via Cherry Red. The 2nd Disc compromises of nearly everything to wish for the avid collector; his rare collaborative single from 1981 with René Halkett, the even more rare 1983 Sinister Ducks 7″ plus 8 Demos and Outtakes and some alternative versions make this a pretty exciting sum-up of his early days as solo artist.
