LUDO MICH-MUSIC FROM FILMS BY LUDO MICH, LP, 2005 (RECORDED: 1966-1971), BELGIUM




Subterranean sounding and swaddled in echo, this collection of soundtracks is part Aktionist emetic, part Living Theater group gestalt and part Anton Bruhin-like primitivist tape mangle, while somewhere in the background Smegma are running around with a forrest fire in their left elbow. As was the case with the Citizens For Interplanetary Activity LP that I posted back near the beginning of my work on Mutant Sounds, these very rough and deeply fried recordings document the soundtracks that were made for freak fringe underground films of the era, though in this case it was not for films from the lionized NY scene of that time, but rather from Brussels, Belgium where the Fluxus-associated Mich and his enablers were concocting what appear from all the images included to be some serious Jack Smith/Kenneth Anger-like pansexual depravity.

Thanks for making rare music available for free! But, I disagree strongly with your music review. Actually Ludo Mich sounds like Smegma gestalt with Anton Bruhin having a forest fire, not the other way around. A very beginner mistake! Also, these soundtracks are not nearly as good as his earlier work, recorded when he was three. (the only copy of which is in a shoebox in a garage which i share with Living Theater)

Hi, I'm absolutely shure you don't know this belgian group (from brussels 1985) and you'll enjoy it !!! (It might be close to Front 242)

They haven't recorded anything else than this demo-tape, the singer and composer is still a friend of mine that radically turned to a different mood, playing the trombone and especially ..."dixieland"!!!!!!! Today, he completely forgot this tape and I've remind him that far-away time and asked him whatever if I did post it? he was rather happy!

Please, check this one too:

An old Japanese toy commercial was just brought to my attention. It has a unique theme. I was wondering if you guys knew anything about this, or if you could find out who the band/composer might be.
