about

Wonderful collaboration-release between VOD and Blowpipe to celebrate one of the most exciting dutch 80’s tape-labels. Musical harvest of Studio 12, the postpunk cassette label of the Haarlem Dutch Ultra movement of almost 5 hours of music with 63 tracks.

Beginning of the 80's, artists and musicians mingled in squatted places to create, in the true DIY-vain, an unique blend of (minimal-) electronics, drones, soundscapes and tribal music.

Bands like Nexda, Smalts, Vitaal, Die Krü Blødt, Cargo-Cultus still sound fresh and exciting today but received only a marginal distribution back then. The result were excellent compilation-tapes such as 'A Thousand Faces','Muzak for Critics', a K&I tape called 'Promise Promise' as well as several Nexda-tapes, all released in very limited amount that finally find a well deserved reissue as a remastered 5LP-vinyl-box-set with bonus 7" and extensive colourful booklet. We are happy that this boxset sets this straight and that it finds its way to music aficionados and a new enthusiastic public.
