Like 'Even When It Makes No Sense' this booklet doesn't deal with music that much. It was published by Coup de Grave, as a cooperative project between Coup de Grace and Ashenden. 'The texts that appear on these pages may be useful to some, worthless to others. They reveal the underlying philosophies and intentions of their creators. They exist for those who care to investigate...'. Not the most pleasant thing, but then what did you expect from Coup de Grace?
This is the first magazine here which is partly in German and partly in English. I didn't have the original issue, but back in the days the publisher Willi Statsch (who also ran Chtuhlu Records, even when that was a bit later on) made me a xerox of the first issue. I believe this to be complete. I have the other issues too and to be complete, it seemed right to start with this. Contents include articles on Whitehouse, Coil, Non Toxique Lost, Falx Cerebri, Nekrophile Records and more. I think published around 1985.
This magazine was published by David Minshall and number 7 was the last issue. On his R&D Group 28 publishing house he also did a 'best of' of issues 5, 6 and 7, which I also have and will do in the future, as I don't have any other issue of this magazine. This issue has articles/interviews on John Duncan, Autopsia, Jean-Luc Marre, Club Moral, Video Technology, Nekrophile Records, Einsturzende Neubauten, Trax and short bits on various labels.

Issue #2 of Hal McGee's Electronic Cottage International Magazine from Sept 1989.
Highlights include articles on Allegory Chapel Ltd, Iao Core, an interview with Chris "Mental Anguish" Phinney, several articles with tips and advice for hometapers, reviews, and interesting commentary and discussion in the letters section.
I think this was an one-off release from the record label Frux, who brought you the excellent 'Born Out Of Dreams' and 'A Salute' by Organum/The New Blockaders. Small and big features on those two, as well as 400 Blows, Band Of Holy Joy, Coil, Crass, Test Dept, Psychic TV, Die Todliche Doris, DDAA, Allen Ginsberg, Chris & Cosey, Fear Of Thought and We Be Echo. In the scans also included is a piece of artwork by Babs Santini. I guess this was made in 1984 or 1985.
This is a booklet I still use a lot for my No Longer Forgotten Music blog, although not this first edition. There have been, I think, three editions (well those I have and won't sell), and I always use the second one, as the third omits all no longer available cassettes. I use all three probably to some extend. Its hard to imagine in the internet days how valueable books like this were. The 'International Discography Of The New Wave' was one I used to sleep with actually. Regard this as 'discogs' on paper, basically a list of all independently released cassettes in The Netherlands up to that point. This is said to be Frans de Waard's very first public appearance and brought him some publicity. Later on he announced that this was the first release by Korm Plastics, even when it was published before actually starting the label (hence it doesn't appear in this edition). Looking at these lists I'd say there is a lot more waiting to be blogged - yet not by me, as I don't have these tapes.

I should be scanning these in order, but this is such a good issue I skipped ahead to #8. Interviews with Richard Franecki of F/i, Big City Orchestra, hometaper and Sound of Pig label honcho Al Margolis, Paul Lemos of Controlled Bleeding, History Of Unheard Music, performance artist John Duncan, plus coverage of the Dallas, Texas Mailart Congress and REVIEWS.

Issue Vol. 2, No. 1 is to be found here (i have a copy of it too actually); here is the last issue (scan by Mason) and it includes articles on Coup de Grace, Crash Worship, Sigillum S. V2 Organization, Zero Kama and one page of reviews. I believe this was their last issue.
This is the little brother of No Longer Forgotten Music and its aim is to post scans of fanzines out of the musical underground. These posts will be very irregular. The languages will be (probably) English, German and Dutch - languages I can read. Translations will not be provided, so please don't ask.
REPORT BROKEN LINKS THROUGH E-MAIL, NOT AS COMMENT.
Like with No Longer Forgotten Music, I have decided to sell some of the fanzines on this blog. Make me a serious (!) offer for any item you see, in euros, excluding postage and I will consider it. A lot of people ask me for prices, please don't. I have no prices, no list. You ask what you want and offer what you think is fair. DON'T ASK FOR A PRICE LIST. Please send to: <email@example.com>
