A creme de la creme assortment of roguish wits from the fringes of various sub-undergrounds of the era (many of whom have been individually featured on MS) proceed to blanch, mince, macerate and cheerfully fling about fragments of Strauss' hoary old chestnut, The Blue Danube Waltz, the results served up in delectable bite-sized morsels of a minute-or-so. Yes, this may qualify to some extent as a one-dimensional exercise in snark, but it manages to wring a helluva lot of fun out of the process, even if the endless iterations of this brainworm over the long haul can leave you feeling a bit like you're trapped on a carousel.

continuo-that'll teach me to look up an album more than a week in advance of posting it to see if it's gone up elsewhere yet! Don't worry, though. You've gotten there before me on about 30-40 or so titles that I'd planned to share by now :-)

Actually, a couple of weeks back, I spent around 3-4 hours to transfer and write reviews for the two Local International comp tapes only to find them newly posted your site the very DAY I was to going to share them! I guess it's inevitable when a blog owner's sensibility is as close to ours as yours is...

Does anyone know where I can find Utakata no Hibi by Mariah? I found one great song from them, but I can't seem to find anything else. If anyone could help me find this album or anything else from Mariah I would greatly appreciate it. If you can help, please email me at

I just have one chance or finding a nice but rare album.

It's an album released in 1986 by "HELMUT TEUBNER".

1986 - Foresee

As this one was released on Magnetic cassette I can't find it anywhere.
I hope someone here can share this rare one.

His second album "1987 - In the Air " was released on LP and is nice too.

But I mostly crave for the first one.

a very interesting compilation focalized-obsessed on this piece of human poetry of all time. Results are pretty good, a weird listening experience.
thanks as usual!
