It may have escaped your notice,hopefully,that a certain moaning German DIY music oligarch (our 'friends' at VOD),was complaining,on facebook I believe, about how hard done by he has been because a rival reissue label from France (Rotorelief) has beaten his corpulent majesty, in attempting a reissue of French Industrial artiste Stenka Bazin's,also know as the weird and arty,not,Claude Escarmand's, early cassette works. So all you record consumers in the richest 1% of the "Ain't I weird and artistic,not" record collecting bracket,will have to exchange their diminishing wad of 100 Euro bills for someone else's over priced and over packaged re-marketed lo-fi 'we've heard it all before' eighties old Skool Industrial for the upper stratum white collar professional.
Naturally the curators of laughable Genesis P. Orridge museums everywhere are lubricating themselves with self-righteous indignation that someone else has the sheer gall to compete in the same area as they have claimed as their property,that they would hypocritically claim that this rival label owner was maybe arrogant????.....and may not have the artist in question's best interests at heart????? Quick somebody nail them to a cross for we sinners are not worthy.
Sect members are effortlessly liberated of their easily earned cash,hemorrhaging profusely into the swollen edifices of this messianic cassette tape Richard Branson.In fact Claude Escarmand himself was't too shy in using messianic imagery,and a few cocks, to enhance his 'i'm weird and arty' credibility to a level hither to only seen in a Hermann Nitsch video;and almost as boring too. Come Armageddon come.
Rotorelief is the rather naughty label in question,who have had the nerve to want to reissue these Stenka Bazin cassettes.Their crime being that they have taken too long,and won't co-operate with the auto-superior re-issue pied piper of Hamlin, and give them the master tapes which were given to them by the artiste himself.....who,as artists are liable to do,changed his minds(sic) half-way through the project.
Of course readers of this blog could not care less about the hissy-fits of these small business men,so I thought it would be funny to post some of these tapes here. Bog standard Old Skool Industrial as it may be,but it gives a section of my readership the chance to escape the glut of Contemporary Folk musick(note crowleyism) that these poor chaps have been exposed to these past weeks.Folk musick(there I go again) is far more unsettling than most of this endless shit pit of Industrialism could ever be.
So, I gift those with Industrial withdrawal symptoms,the no more than just 'Ok' sounds of Stenka Bazin of France. I may be so incredibly bored of listening to this stuff, but at least those who aren't can keep their Euro's in their furry black fanny bag purses for a bit longer.This stuff wasn't meant for glossy over elaborate reissues.Its as if the capitalists in question have never actually listened,or understood this music...and why should they?...we do though, don't we?....in fact who cares?...in fact also, you can get the set here,so i've been informed:
Saves me from boring myself rigid,and straining my brane trying to think of something else to say about Industrial musick and the usual targets. I dunno if they are in 320k however,but 'tis supposed to be noisy anyways so...whatever?
