Some blogs worth of your attention

Music blogs exploded last year. Some of them already gone and new ones coming. I would like to grab your attention for some new bloggers. I would also like to mention to give some feedback from time to time as this makes blogging worthwile. New bloggers need it.

First one is Capa Nostra Syndicate. He already made us happy with some wonderful gifts here like Trop Tard, UV Pop and Paranoia. If you're still looking for the Trop Tard 'Photodramme' cassette, look no further.

Ghosts In The House is a fairly new blog and Squiggles entertains us with some very obscure Japanese Postpunk. Check out Gara. He also posted the very rare 'Medusa' 7" of UK gothpunk band Cold Dance.

Habit Of Sex is also very Japanese oriented although more on the Visual Kei side. But you can find the 'Lorelei' 12" of Madame Edwarda there.

Fantasmi Macchina posted both 12"'s of Of A Mesh, a violin-fuelled postpunk band from New York. Classic stuff!

Soundhead is already going for a while but is posting full albums now. More on the minimal synth side. Check out Iron Curtain to know what the fuzz is all about. Also Minny Pops, Palais Schaumburg and more.

Speaking of minimal synth. Seems to be the hype in record collecting these days. Most records are very rare 'cos not many were pressed. And once you had some synths and a rhythmbox, it was easy to create your own thing. Check out this eBay auction and drool!!

I've got to compliment you on your blog. It's impossible to find a lot of this stuff. I may have to create one and share some ole cassettes myself. PS - Does anyone have the 391 cassettes? I've been looking for those forever!

Squiggles said...

Thank you, sir, for the mention! Very flattered to be on the list. :)

Julie: I assume you mean solo, poppy Björk circa 1993, not snarling, gothic Björk circa 1983.

I'm afraid I don't get your sandwich. Or Whitehouse.
