Nasmak ‎– "Indecent Exposure 1 & 2 (Music For Brass, Woodwind, Drums & Violins)" -(Self-released C60+C90) 1981

Well!?...where does, or can, one start? Here we have part one of a triptych of double cassettes(a C60 and a C90!) by Dutch Post-Punk band, Nasmak, from Eindhoven.
The shear weight of stuff on this double cassette alone tests ones 21st century attention span to the limit. Thankfully , its largely very interesting and good stuff, constantly inventive and at time even catchy and danceable!?
Twelve Dozen(That's a gross by the way!) tracks captured live and in rehearsal;and there's also Indecent Exposure parts 3,4,5,&6 to follow, which even outdo's Danny and the Dressmakers' 4 and a half hour Rock Opera,"200 cancellations", by about five hours!???
Prolific isn't the words, but its all quality ,classic, post-punk experimentation of the highest lo-fi order.
This is what it says on the insert:

"INDECENT EXPOSURE + 144 minutes of music for brass, woodwind, drums, violins and cellos. recorded by nasmak, roland smits, theo kleintjes and dick verdult between july and december 1980. some pieces were recorded on a portable mono cassetterecorder, others on stereo equipment. all recordings live at gigs, rehearsals/jams and in dressing rooms in holland and germanu. nasmak at that time were: joop van brakel - guitar, voice; toon bressers - drums, syndrums; theo van eenbergen - bass, basspedals; truus de groot - voice, cracklesynthesizer, guitar; henk janssen - guitars; roland smits."
