All of your favorites, in one place.
Wonderful limited 444 Collaboration-Release between VOD and Blowpipe to celebrate one of the most exciting dutch 80’s Tape-Labels. Musical harvest of Studio 12, the postpunk cassette label of the Haarlem Dutch Ultra movement. Beginning of the 80's artists and musicians mingled in squatted places to create, in the true DIY-Vain, an unique blend of minimal- electronics, drones, soundscapes and tribal music.
Bands like Nexda, Smalts, Vitaal, Die Krü Blødt, Cargo-Cultus still sound fresh and exciting today but received only a marginal distribution back then. The result were excellent Compilation-Tapes such as „A Thousand Faces“,„Muzak for Critics“, a K&I Tape called „Promise Promise“ as well as several Nexda-Tapes, all released in very limited amount that finally find the well deserved reissue as 5Lp-Vinyl-Box-Set with extensive colourful Booklet, all designed by mighty Steve Lippert. We are happy that this boxset sets this straight and that it find its way to music aficionados and a new enthusiastic public.
