Antonio Mainenti – Mudanza Side B

Our friend from Sicily, Antonio Mainenti reports in with a studio discovery, or maybe a logical sprout from the DIY-ethos. Make an album, release it digitally and give every buyer of the new record a cassette out of a box full of old tapes. He picked one of those tapes himself, listened and decided to mix the music with his album. The outcome is a kind of music for imaginary islands: you can hear fights with sea monsters, the first encounters with the islanders, the long walk to the highest…

Radio On Maggie by Adrian Shephard and Rinus Van Alebeek

Radio On Maggie was first broadcasted shortly after Margareth Thatcher passed away, and that’s how she became a feature in our program alongside with Genesis P-Orridge, who, if born ten years later might have opted for the artist name Genesis M-Ãœsli. Both have had their influence on trash culture and the ethos of DIY. With Thatcher’s daughter peeing next to John Lydon’s bed and stories of vomiting rats as the more lovelier lullabies, this program could easily be qualified as the trashiest and most vulgar we ever made. Thanks God…

No Pigeonholes by Don Campau – Songs from the Archives

In the continuing story about the cassette culture Don Campau takes us to his garage. Here over five thousand cassettes are stored. Most of them arrived by post. Don decided to make a kind of archeologic expedition and virtually travel through various layers of time and music.             If Don needed a blank tape, he went down to the drugstore and bought a couple. Back in his garage a number of tape machines and instruments would do the rest: produce a cassette, a finished work…

3. February – A Propos de Minos by William Nurdin

A new program by French radio producer/musician William Nurdin offers a re-mix/best of of the shows he has made for various radio stations since 2007. A Propos de Minos is an itinerant Radio Show and could be considered as Nurdin’s personal barometer, a sonic report of his encounters during his travels and tours. The shows, therefore, offer also an insight in the various off-institutional DIY-scenes and the current state of audio/radio experimentations. The first episode of A Propos de Minos brings you ‘dialogues’ with the likes of A.Neizrn, T.Strauss, B.Loigher,…
