Maurizio Bianchi(M.B.)-Mectpyo Blut, tape,1979,UK

Here's the very first release of the legendary Mauricio Bianchi,under the name M.B.,from 1979.Not that harsh industrial noise outputs that can be heard in other releases ,but electronic experimental music, claustrophobic in the vein of Asmus Tiechens, early 80s recordings.Was re-released by Slaughter Productions in Italy ,in the early 90s in limited edition of 30 copies.
" Bianchi began to produce music in 1979, and since 1980 has used electronic equipment with the avowed goal "to produce technological sounds and in such a way to work on complete realising of the modern decadence".
In the beginning, he published tapes under the alias Sacher-Pelz. In 1981, William Bennett, head of the band Whitehouse and the British Come Org. label, offered Bianchi a record contract, which Bianchi signed unchecked. It was based on a "joke contract" that Steven Stapleton of Nurse With Wound had sketched. The contract assumed all rights to Bianchi's work. After delivery of the tapes Bennett edited-in speeches by Nazi leaders, and instead of the relatively unsensational name MB, it was published under the alias Leibstandarte SS MB, named after the SS unit that worked as bodyguards to Adolf Hitler.
Until 1984, Bianchi published on other labels intensively as either MB or simply Maurizio Bianchi, sometimes several albums and/or tapes per year, as well as numerous tracks to compilations.
Bianchi became religious and withdrew from the music business. Much of his work is sought today by collectors, especially as they appeared in extremely small editions. In 1998, encouraged by Alga Marghen label head Emanuele Carcano, who offered him a label of his own, Maurizio Bianchi started again to make music. The label is EEs'T Records, through which he released new editions of all old MB albums, as well as many new releases.
Therefore, since 1997, he was back on the underground scene, working on several projects both in solo or in collaboration with other Italian artists (Giuseppe Verticchio/NIMH, Arnaldo Pontis and Corrado Altieri/TH26, Davide Femia/MDT, Saverio Evangelista, Matteo "Hue" Uggeri/Sparkle in Grey, Emanuela De Angelis and Eugenio Maggi/Crìa Cuervos) and international (Klaus e Danijela Jochim/Telepherique, Sandro Kaiser/Frequency In Cycles Per Second, Akifumi Nakajima/Aube, David van Ravesteijn/Land Use, Siegmar Fricke, Nobu Kasahara e Hitoshi Kojo, Maor Appelbaum, Jozef Van Wissem, Craig Hilton, Philip Julian/Cheapmachines)."

bikefridaywalter said...

who's your old band and what's the relevance?

It's just an album, no relevance.
I thought it was suited to an open minded blog like this one. Maybe I was wrong - sorry!

More M.B. stuff, please!!! Those links on Direct Waves are corrupted unfortunately. Can you upload them here on Mutant Sounds? Will you be able to post anything more from his first period (1979-1984)? And maybe some later stuff which is unavailable? Please, do. :-)

The first half of this seems to be the same as the "Mectpyo" LP from the recent Vinyl on Demand boxset "Evidences 1". The second half, despite having identical titles, is definitely NOT the same as the "Blut" LP from that same set. It actually reminds me a little of some of Sun Ra's Minimoog experiments.

I would absolutely encourage you to post as much early MB as you would choose to do. There's so much which has never been reissued, and it's all very confusing as he gives the same titles to different works from time to time.

Do you have "VA-The Second Coming"
or "VA-Anthology 1"?

I thank you for the MB posts, bit it is a STELLAR pain in the ass trying to get RAR files to extract properly. I was able to get the first past to work correctly, but not the second one. I am so sick of this shit- why not just have a direct link to the mp3 files? Until you do that, this great site is unfortunately of little use to me. Life is too short to go shooting up my blood pressure try to get files to extract.

After having taking my Zoloft after I wrote my last message, I tried downloading past two again. no luck. I tried opening it up and extracting it into BitZipper. I received one of those "File damaged" notifications. Oddly enough I was able to part one just fine. It's neat to hear M.B. in his tape collage period.
