V/A Aural Fixation MC

One of the early cassette releases on Sound Of Pig. This tape label was run by Al Margolis of If, Bwana and released over 200 tapes, documenting the international experimental scene.
'Aural Fixation' compiles mostly acts from the USA, except for the Haters from Canada.
Savage Republic offer a live recording of 'Exodus'.
Schlafengarten brings us 2 tracks. Known for his collaborations with Psyclones.
Theatre Of Ice is more in a goth/postpunk direction.
Nice to see Smersh appear here as well. F/i offers a track from their early, more experimental period.
The other acts are not really known to me. Girls On Fire did a tape on the French Vita Nova cassette label.

For more info on Sound Of Pig, go the the Pogus site

I did a few tapes for Sound of Pig, and I was always amazed at Al Margolis' selfless dedication.

Sorry, this isn't about the post in question, just wondering if Curious Guy or any regular readers can help with some mystery mp3s someone on livejournal has. Stuff that's been identified so far is by Royal Family and the Poor, Modern Eon, Abecedarians, Breathless, Pink Military, etc.

Please click here

Princess, I think I read that on The Thing On The Doorstep but I forgot the name of your project. A pity that Pogus doesn't list the early discography.
Steve, I'll check later.

Hello Steve, I wish I could help with the unknown tracks posted on Livejournal but I can't get to the file ("file not found").

Hello curious guy. I'm the one Steve mentioned that is looking for information about a bunch of unidentified songs, new wave mostly. The files are unavailable for download, apparently a lot of people have downloaded them and I'm at the limit. If you'd be interested I could e-mail you the songs, 3 songs per e-mail.

If you can help at all it would be wonderful!

luminousmotion, you can send them to:
I'll see what I can do. Hopefully I can identify a few for you.

Thanks. Those were some cool tunes.

I had forgotten how cool the cassette underground was, so many people creating so much noise. Some very creative people doing stuff without computers and all the electronic giizmos we have today.

Funny, I just saw Theatre of Ice a few days ago. They were still as crazy as ever.
