The Tape Review Show – Michal Libera interview and works by Malachi Doyle, J.G. Sparkes and Anne F. Jacques/Eduardo Astodillo

A special The Tape Review Show introduced by a blitz visit of Michal Libera who talks about cold bars in Krakòw, Polish soups and Kieslowski. The tapes and non-tapes were sent by Malachi Doyle from somewhere in Australia, J.G. Sparkes from Stockholm and Anne-F Jacques from Montreal. There are too many storylines to follow them all, but somehow Spaceships and Hitler always seem to haunt our studio.

Cassette Review: J.G. Sparkes – The Infinity Suite I-XII

There is nothing special about those songs; FM radio transmits them all the time, young people who try to look like models or pop stars sing…

Cassette Review: Storch Interior Extracts – Remote Assistance Failure

On the attic, a man looks at pictures of an old magazine. He reads about an Italian warship that disappeared in the arctic sea in the winter of the year 1945. He reads about scientists who went to the North Pole to find the ship. They believed it carried a secret…
