*2022 stock. 250 copies edition* 'Mectpyo/Blut' came out in 1980 as a ninety-minute cassette and between that and this official double CD Banned Production and Bacteria Field released it on cassette, but also came out as a double LP by Marquis Records and a single LP in Japan on no particular label. This release marks the transition from using the name Sacher Pelz to M.B. and was his first official release as M.B. (or MB, whatever you prefer).

Four pieces here, each about twenty-two minutes (hence this being a c90 when it came out, and most suitable for a 2LP re-issue - one day?), and in each of these pieces MB plays around with some low fidelity means, such as spinning records by hand and taping them to reel-to-reel machines, cutting them into crude loops and playing around with these. Each of these pieces could be divided into separate pieces of music itself - 'Musique Belzec' even contains a piece with 'sampled' rhythm loop. It's not as distorted as some of his later work, and also the use of effects, such as his much beloved delay pedal on his later records from his early days.

The music is very atonal, devoid of much composition and sometimes way too long staying within a few limited sounds. Boring? Yes, perhaps indeed, but there is always something captivating I think about what MB does, and such subjective 'good' or 'bad' are somehow irrelevant; it either grabs you and you love it, or you stay stone cold and hate it.
