HEADCLEANER-Head Of The Next One-(Big Deal-Usa-1994)

Amazing band from UK active in the mid 90s and playing a very personal form of noisy heavy industrial hatecore recalling  bands such as Jesus Lizard and Killing Joke.
This album is their debut and it has a great energy delivering us their full powerful force and great songwriting.I just cannot stop dancing...
This is ace.

Enjoy it.

POL SILENTBLOCK-Quand Pol Silentblock Se Parodie Lui-Meme`-(Red Neon Tapes-Belgium-c60-199?)

Great cassette by this belgian musician playing a weird experimental trans cultural electro jazzy/swing jingles using mainly guitar,keyboard and drum machine.His music is very personal and at the times touching and danceble too.
I posted another tape by him:Pour Le Sourire D`Alexia.A discogs page about him is here. Active since the 90s,He released quite few productions and he seems to be still active nowadays.
Red Neon Tapes was an experimental tape label created by Patrick Parent. It produced about 50 cassettes, some of which include "New Hippies" compilation series as well as material by the likes of Mlehst, Telepherique and M. Nomized.I posted already lots of tapes by this label. 
Enjoy it.
