This post is to announce a new blog by me, entirely dedicated to the Dutch magazine Vinyl. Its all in Dutch but has tons of great interviews, photos, reviews and with the first 26 issues also a flexi. I'm planning to post one every week, until the mission is completed. All of this has been scanned by Krit Koenig from Belgium, whom I can't thank enough. I supplied the flexi disc material as I have all of these, and still cherish it like the bible of new music. So go there straight away!
The only issue I have from this Belgium fanzine, with interviews with Aube, Kapotte Muziek, Big City Orchestra, Atrax Morgue, Richard Ramirez, Paul Schultze, Zabriskie Point and Praxis Dr. Bearmann plus reviews. Published may 1996
Another issue of this mostly in Dutch fanzine with articles on Casse, Brain Ink, White House White, studio recording tips and tricks, tape and record reviews, and news from the world of Independent Friends records. From March 1987.
Highly controversial magazine published by Club Moral, not just about muziek (here a piece by Merzbow and The Haters), but also performance art (Marx verunxt, V, Nigel rolfe), Literature (Mary Dowd, Gery de Smet, Jurgen Voordeckers), collages by Peter Sotos, Krik, Bernaded Dexters and DDV and AMVK. This seems the only one issue I physically have. Published march/april 1983, partly Dutch, part English.
Two graphical booklets at the start of the new year, both dealing with new years: calenders. Both were produced by Korm Plastics and are basically graphics by musicians who incorporated a month. The 1986 one is a booklet - quite useless if you ask me for a calender - and has graphics by Graf Haufen, Alain Neffe, Coup e Grace, Rafael Flores, Wartste Copy Art, 6de Kolonne, Mick Gaffney, Kart, Peter Zincken, Trev Ward, Disabuse Tranmissions and Hapunkt Fix. Edition of 86 copies, obviously.
And the 1987 has contributions by Eriek van Havere, Midas Tapes, Luis Mesa, Trart, Victor/im, Selektion Optik, V2, Frans de Waard, G.X. Jupitter Larsen, Markus Arvidson, Peter Desmet and No Unauthorized. Edition of 87 copies on a single A3 sheet.
Wow, lots of great stuff in this issue. Interviews with Dave Prescott, Dan Burke (Illusion of Safety), Randy Greif, Rik Rue, and Takehisa Kosugi. An account of the First International Cassette Makers Conference (The Kentucky Fried Royalty Meeting) in Cologne, Germany. An account of the Vidna Obmana American tour. And a variety of interesting articles, including articles about independent music in West Germany, cultural aspects of improvisation, a history of Lloyd Dunn's PhotoStatic project, and much more. Lots of interesting letters from readers in the Feedback section too. From March 1990.
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>
