KAAMOSHOW 13 - Spettro Records special

This time I´m offering you the special mix dedicated to Italian net label Spettro rec. Lots of free downloads by artists who can be filed under experimental. Sometimes noisy, sometimes silent and calming, at times just confusing and sometimes just plain rocking. They also sell beatiful hand made cd´s so go get them at

"Spettro records was born from the minds of three free individuals determined to create a distibutive modality for their music and artistic endeavors that no one has wanted to listen to.
We aren't fooling ourselves in believing that you could be particularly interested either, but through this name we are giving release to works that took a lot of effort in terms of emotions, research and meaning. A spectre in a haze of labels, we don't have any specific intentions if not to distribute our music, the work of our requests to those who may benefit from it. A benefit which will not be either in economic, musical nor cultural terms but simply emotional, in the sense of an emotional exchange between free individuals. Opening a music label based on the matter may not have any sense today but it has sense for us who have delivered these works and we hope will make sense to those who will understand them.
Spettro doesn't welcome in its womb nothing which deals with scenes, styles, enterprises or subjugations. Spettro greets the ethereal of a music that strips from the decaying matter and undresses into content, pure meaning later being accepted in the limits of a format, cd-r or whatever, which is simply a container to free itself from, in order to find a new homeland in the conscience and empathy of others.
For these reasons fundamental requisite of Spettro's works is the content, free from formand aesthetic quality in order to favor a quality of soul. In fact, requisite to performing works is to remain and operate in the solitude and the isolation of one's own home, away from studies from the scenes and all the rest. The notion of DIY is popular nowadays, but the important thing is that these works didn't cost anything to be created if not the effort of the single individual in conceiving them and of the single listener to understand them.
Firstly, Spettro began as an outlet for the silent works of a group of friends who met and decided to express themselves in the form more congenial to them reasserting the absolute priority of content over form. In the absence of arguments to justify living on this earth, we, who are involved, can only forget the discourse and stick to the pure meaning directed in forms which words cannot contain, for the intrinsic vagueness of their being, thus turning to music as meaningfulness. Though empty, these works testify a life project, a fragile and etheral existence, yet necessary for those who pursue it. We are what we musically express and our being is defined as the work proceeds which isn't a single finishing line rather a temporary and unresolved working process always incomplete and because of this always yearning for a more lively and signifificant being.The impossibility of a term, as of a complete form and even the need of a trial that involves us existentially and eternally.
We don't define ourselves as avant guarde of anything nor as belonging to anything rather only as our own being finished. We are less than avant-garde, maybe we belong to a particular sub-garde type, inside a perpetual motion that doesn't find progress rather just a spiral-like movement which instead of adding, subtracts, deprives us of our certainties. A deeper and deeper digging that might bring us to an unexpected result:our being finished, the emptiness of our intentions. The anguish of feeling one's being, total, finished, resolved is too great, that's why we fragment ourselves in trial works which are never finished. Sub-garde doesn't represent the opposite of avant-garde, rather the conscience of the infinite development inside the time and aspect of things and the consequent attention to what internally and out of time motivates this.
Spettro contains our works which set the moment they rose. We are gathering them here hoping they may regain order through the contact with the other, whoever he may be.
This is the aptitude that characterizes Spettro's works, even if they will probably never be brought to light.From an objective point of view the sound we propose is the one produced by people and not money.This doesn't mean to sound as a protest against something or someone.We just want to present a point of view which is progressively dying out, that is the human one at a time when what makes the difference is the expensive surface of things.
All our albums are handmade, created with love and care, and made on demand."

Now here is something different. Instead of usual mix show I post this time a little compilation tape called "Funana Absurdos - experimental sounds from Cabo Verde". As some regular followers (are there any?) of my other blog might remember, I spent a holiday in Cabo Verde recently. This tape is a compilation of totally unknown (at least to me) underground artists of Cabo Verdean origin... I think, since there is absolutely no information whatsoever included. Only a 60 minute tape with seven tracks which range from noise to ambient, cut-up loops of some local hit music (my wild guess), field recording madness and something which I would call 'drunken ambient' (listen to the last track and you know what I mean).

Tape was ripped as two mp3-files (side A & side B). There´s music approx. 40 mins but it seems that tracks have been dubbed on radio interference noise recordings which you can hear in the middle of songs and in the end of both sides. Strange. Place it right next to your "Extreme music from Africa" -compilation cd.

KAAMOSHOW 11 - three decades of Einstürzende Neubauten

This time I´m concentrating on one of my old-time favorites: EN. Reason for this is that I´m still quite excited that I got to see them play live two days in a row just recently. They have been around for three decades and I still remember the time when I bought my first EN record (Strategies Against Architecture Vol. I) sometime in 1985-1986 as a teenager from the most unusual place for such action: the small Greek holiday resort island Kos! I wasn´t quite sure then if I really liked it or not but it sure sounded exciting. Years passed and I fell victim for temporary speed/death metal disease. I traded most of my good records for Venom, Metallica, Mercyful Fate etc. which I truly regretted later. Lucky me, I saw reason some years later and found EN again.

I tend to think like most EN fans (at least the ones I know) that their prime time was back in the 80´s. Halber Mench album (and especially the video) is great, Fünf auf der Nach... is good also but recently I began to appreciate Patienten O.T. most. Haus der Lüge is their last truly great album and Tabula Rasa is the record that I appreciate least. Later albums sure have their moments but unfortunately they tend to be of uneven quality. Looks like the more EN get professional soundwise, they lose that 'something' which I appreciate in their 80´s material. It´s surprising that their most interesting post-80´s material (which is often based on material recorded in the early days) is hidden in limited edition cd´s which can be ordered only from their official web store (while they last). Especially I was surprised how good (i.e. challenging) Unglaublicher Lärm, Grundstück, Stimmen Reste & EN vs. Redux Orchestra are compared to official albums.

A few words about three decades of EN tour Tampere gigs which I witnessed. The first night was an evening with EN when they played smaller set in club enviroment, then Blixa performed a shorter version of Rede/Speech, closing act was a duo Rudolf Moser and Christian Meyer who played a full percussion-heavy & e-bow driven set. Second night was 2½ hours of EN on a bigger stage. Sound was good and band was in good mood except Blixa who at times showed his ill-tempered side by furiously pointing his anger at the sound men because of some stage monitoring issues... I think. The overall feeling was a repeat from the night before when few times Blixa turned from sarcastically funny joke telling gentleman to anger-ridden art-diva in a matter of seconds. On the second night I was quite disappointed for the lack of 80´s material but on the other hand the more recent stuff that I did not like that much on record sounded much better live (as usual but this time it was very clear from the beginning). Luckily they played the first night Seele brennt, Sand & Armenia (+ two other tracks). Two nights of good, clean entertainment and it is always nice to see those curious metal objects live on stage. Period, enjoy.

KAAMOSHOW 10 - Flow festival 2010 special

I rarely go to summer festivals nowadays bacause A) I hate big crowds of people, B) there´s usually too few good artists and a shitload of artists you don´t like, C) uneven weather conditions can seriously ruin your experience, D) very few bands actually sound good in the open air festivals (compared to club gigs) & D) I´m too old for that shit. Unusually I decided to go to local Flow festival next weekend for two days. I´ve always thought that this particular urban festival is a gathering of so called indie-electro hipsters and other miserable wannabes but for my surprise there´s a lot of interesting experimental acts playing this year (+ some urban ethnic stuff). So, I guess I have to comb my hair and go out to the real world this time. Here is a special mix (divided in two parts) presenting some of the artists and styles to be heard this year.

....................part A....................
UUSI FANTASIA: Piikkilankamiehet

KAAMOSHOW 09 - no easy pop tunes here

A lot of tracks that sound like they escaped from motion pictures. Spooky atmospheres, intense and emotional tunes, humming and droning. Especially I like Mono´s track which is probably one of the most beatiful songs I´ve heard (live and recorded) in a long time. There´s also a live track by Terminal Cheesecake (one of the most interesting unknows of the independent music history) + my recent great find The Black Angels team up with UNKLE + unusually solid and danceable track by Muslimgauze etc.

Pour yourself your favorite drink, sit back and press play.

A beginning is the hardest part of everything...

I started posting mixshows originally at my other blog Ikuinen Kaamos last year. They were then (and still are) a small therapy sessions when I thought I was feeling bored and/or wasn´t going nowhere with my own musical hobbies.
I like a wide variety of music and I was sick of visiting clubs and events where DJ´s would play homogenous and unsurprising stream of hits for hours and hours (where the most exciting moment would be when Rolling Stones and Pixies would be played back-to-back... wow that is really a surprising change - yawn). I demand surprises and challenges!!! I rarely nowadays go to clubs, I prefer drinking at home and listening to chaotic mixture of music. These shows were made for my own amusement but I hope that A) they amuse someone else too, and B) someone would find here a brand new exciting band or a song.
Mostly the songs included in the mixes are played back-to-back BUT... occasionally I find it amusing to mess with them: tracks overlapping each other (like a spoken word track over ambient soundscape), songs played at different speed or reversed, only small portions of tracks played here and there etc. All the tracks are not musical pieces, some of them are sound effects, spoken word pieces, radio snippets, concrete sounds and interference noises.

Have fun. I know I did.
