Recycled Body Programm / Vidna Obmana / S.C.U.M. - Statue Series

Classy set of tapes that has Bart Hanselaar's Recycled Body Programm, Dirk Serries' Vidna Obmana (just in case you don't know, Dirk morphed into the excellent Fear Falls Burning) and S.C.U.M. (Masami Akita and Kiyoshi Mizutani).

The third tape is the great "The Scan Has Undergone Several Minor Revisions" that was released in Japan on Masami's ZSF Produkt label in the same year. I doubt that many in "the west" would have got to heard this otherwise. The fourth tape is a compilation (that has most of the Steel CUM tape) with some great collaborations and reworkings from the European chaps.

Four C60 set released on Seiten Sprung Aufnahmen in 1989.

two and a half months to go but yeah probably


S.C.U.M. were never solo ... always Masami Akita with Kiyoshi Mizutani ... the tape here is exactly the same as the ZSF tape (and isn't on Merzbox). Anyway, most of the rest are on Merzbox and were probably remastered. The one's I've posted are analogue sources that are different. There is the 7" coming tomorrow but the chances of anything else in it's original form are probably slim to zero.
