V/A-MOTOP 2, CD, 1991, VARIOUS




The backstory on the Motop compilations (the first was an LP from a few years earlier) is that all the experimental artists that are participating paid their way in, though notable parties and works of value are nevertheless in abundance here. My vote for pick of the litter goes to Alain Basso, best known for his work with Lieutenant Caramel in Denier Du Culte, whose morphing and brain-mulching 12+ minute 3-part album closing collaboration with one Ilo Istatov is the clear highlight here, though other choice bits for me include Conrad Schnitzler-collaborator Jorg Thomasius, Maeror Tri (pre-Troum), Wolfgang Foag and Runzelstirn & Gurglestock.

Track details:

1. Merzbow/Kapotte Muziek-Speedback Variation Nr. 1 (KP0BO)
2. Runzelstirn & Gurglestock-Stolperfalle
3. Genocide Organ-Blaster
4. De Fabriek-Tess 2
5. Jorg Thomasius-Komparsengesang
6. Mike Shannon-Star Texts II
7. Maeror Tri-Ab Infernis
8. Wolfgang Foag-Cold And Grey
9. Karl F. Gerber-Batterie Numerique
10. Wasp King-Mappa Negra; Mundi Negra
11. S.Core-Resolvent
12. Frak-Witzy Is Harder
13. Value Stress-Cultural Annihilation
14. L.S.D.-Ri-Pestilenza
15. Onomatopeia-This Is A Lingerie Shop, Sir
16. Delta-Sleeping-Inducing Peptide-Breatless Hurdler
17. Royal Flush-Choir Of The Stone Table
18. Anenzephalia-S.T.M.M.F.
19. Alain Basso & Ilo Istatov-Abymes

Oops - tracks 1, 2 and 10 couldn't be extracted from the apparently corrupted archives... Just a heads-up.

I've got WinZip, WinRar, 7Zip, etc.

Eric, Both zip files for the V/A-MOTOP 2, CD, 1991, VARIOUS appear to be corrupt. I downloaded them each twice. Tried 7zip, even, but still corrupt.

Is anyone else struggling with these two particular zip files as well?

Maybe if we ask nicely, we can get a repost? :)

Thanks, Eric, very much for all that you offer here.

Great thanks! Got the lp vol.1 as well? As the story goes the makers were a bit disappointed after the first issure because most artists chose to ('buy time') submit tracks of 1 minute, which makes this lp a very strange listening experience :-)

In a similar vein the DESPERATELY SEEKING SUICIDE compilation lp would make a great post too!

Thanks for all the excellent music & curious about your next move.

Many thanks, VDO.

Hate to be the bearer of annoying news, but track 10 from the Flies Like Holidays compilation also refuses to be extracted. If you've the time, would you mind confirming, and, if possible, posting a trackfix?

Merci,

TS

Hiya Tom,

Based on your comment, I re-upped a replacement link for Flies. Hope this one works better for ya...

r o t o r-I used to have the first Motop but ended up selling it as the contributions weren't all that strong for me for the most part.

Russian is such a handy tongue, especially for sinister acronyms, band names and album titles... I think I once had the "Motor" comp ages ago myself, but time tends strip possessions from us. Dunno what exactly happened to it. Anyhow, thanks for the Flies fix and congrats on another great clutch of posts!
