**250 copies** Discos Transgénero presents the first ever compilation of How To Get Rich In Rotterdam and Geluidshouwerij. These were projects of Chris Lindquist and Paul Stoute with the collaboration of Linda Lindquist, all of whom were based in Rotterdam in the early ‘80s. How To Get Rich In Rotterdam was a group - formed by Chris Lindquist and Paul Stoute - than only released one self-titled 7" record. This single was a very limited edition coming in two different covers. Johan Kugelberg selected HTGRIR for his Top 100 DIY Singles, describing it as “brilliant, plodding art-slop that reeks of inside jokedom. This record is a reason unto itself to pay eBay prices for vintage drum machines.” Oefening Kunstbaardt and D.A.P.A. were the names of two albums that Chris created in his studio named Geluidshouwerij. The first included the participation of Paul, while the second was recorded by Chris in solitude. Following an experimental and avantgarde line, these were only released as cassettes. After restoring the sound from the original master tapes, this compilation presents such classic DIY recordings on vinyl for the first time with high quality audio. The cover design and illustrations are by René & Paul Stoute. So, let's go back to the beginning of the '80s, to the so-called cassette era when people started making music recordings in their living rooms with equipment that was in reach. If you are interested in something different, then you shouldn't miss this album which offers an imaginary kaleidoscope of strange, experimental and sometimes funny tunes. Comes with an 8-page insert by Chris Lindquist.
