Aube - Tapes 1992-1997




Akifumi Nakajima needs no introduction here.

We lost him way too soon in 2013 but what a legacy he left! This is a spectacular 20 CDr collection of his earlier tape releases courtesy of his own G.R.O.S.S. label. There was an initial edition of 50 in 2003 and anoother 50 in 2004.

i've never been a huge aube fan,
don't why.
Times are a-changin, anyway.
i listen to this massive post
anytime i roam through the countryside by night
and it's fu**ing cool
