Rinus in the Mulinen Studio #1

A show produced at an old wooden table in the heart of the Porticello Castle on the shores of the Liparian Sea. I (=Rinus van Alebeek) used exclusively tape players. The show opens with a long run of the tape EP-1 by EclectikTronik (Ben Roberts.) An other tape played in the process is by The Shitty Listener (Jason Honea). For the rest of the one hour show I mix own recordings (some done on a winter’s day at Tempelhof, an other one in the highest sphere up on Teufelsberg) (others…

No Pigeonholes by Don Campau – Focus on Outsiders, part 2

Little by little the no Pigeonholes shows by Don Campau give the listener an insight into one of the most massive movements that ever existed in the margins of independently produced musics.

Interview with Berlin Chansonoise Coco

Coco came from Hamburg when she made the move to Berlin a few years ago. Hamburg? Isn’t that the German town where a harbour’s nightlife met up with illusions for the common people and gave birth to Springer Verlag? Coco didn’t open a nightclub called Brutal Happy Tapes in Berlin. Maybe that’s a pity. But maybe she didn’t, because she grew up in Germany’s self-proclaimed Utopia: Freistaat Bayern! People from Bavaria run wurstclubs. Brutal Happy Wurst. As always, it is utterly unpredictable where the show will take us. This flyer…
