Graf Haufen is perhaps best known for his Falx Cerebri (one-man) band, but also from his label Graf Haufen Tapes. Less known perhaps is that he also published a fanzine, Die Katastrophe, of which I am presenting today number 9 - I don't have any of the older ones. Basically its a fanzine of reviews, mostly from the world of cassettes. You may not want to download this, since its all in German, but I advise to do a download and look at all the names of obscurities in there. Some of them were posted on No Longer Forgotten Music, but as this magazine will proof, there is lots more forgotten (and to be honest I don't have them either), so you can have an idea what to look for.
The fourth issue has articles/interviews with Der Junge Hund, Radio wesp, Kamagurka, Red Zebra, A4 and Kremlim Products. All in dutch. What it says on the cover is not true: there was no free book part with this. A Kamagruka joke. From Februari 1982.
From 1984. This issue includes interviews with Sonic Youth, Adrian Sherwood, Remko Scha, Zoogz Rift, and Hunting Lodge, an interesting article on Art Radio, plus reviews and other fun miscellaneous goodies. From 1984.
I had to get out and buy a new scanner, which sits better here, so hopefully I can do more magazines - if I have the time for it. So I did the second issue of H23 which had a long editorial exchange between Ron Rice (the publisher) and Carl Howard (of NoMuzic and Artitude magazine), Floating Concrete Octopus, Arthur Potter, Sleep Chamber, Randy Greif, PGR, an Inner-X discography, a piece of Conrad Schnitzler and reviews. Also included in this scan is the 7" that came along and which has tracks by Sleep Chamber, Randy Greif, PGR and Floating Concrete Octopussy. Published in 1989.
Just like the previously posted This Heat/Albert Marcour, this is another issue, of just 12 pages, with articles on the Dutch band Mecano and on Robert Wyatt. The tape, also included in this zip, just has music by Mecano, or to be more precise by band member Theo Bolten.
Issue 5 of File 13 features interviews with Carl Howard (Audiofile Tapes, Nomuzic), Alan Jenkins (Chrysanthemums, Deep Freeze Mice), and Killdozer, plus live show, tape and record reviews, zines, and contacts. From October 1989
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>
