Meltdown

| date: 3 April 1999

Light Speed Drivers, live in Limoges (04-04-1999)

This experimental music festival did not demand repetitive beats. Jan & Blaise’s improvised live set accidentally matched the veejay’s video backdrops: lots of whales and royalty free black and white vintage movies (probably Nosferatu). The audience was impressed, but it was honestly just a big coincidence. Synchronicity, or so they say.

The DAT recording was truncated to fit on a cassette.

The Devil Is In The Detail

| date: 23 November 1998

Closer to 1999, another cassette album was produced in a similar manner, and as a follow up to ‘A New Face In Hell’. “The Devil Is In The Detail” was marginally successful:  nobody said they hated it. This time the production methods had been more professional, hence less noise, but the overall satisfaction level did not increase accordingly. Somehow, Matt fom Scotland sincerely wished to put our music on vinyl, which he actually did, and sloburn001 was released in the year 2000. The track ‘Wheels Of Steel’  is an excerpt of our first live performance in The Hagues infamous loser bar ‘Cafe Koos’, where again nobody  complained out loud. Which is truely different from getting no attention at all.

A New Face In Hell

| date: 23 July 1998

Early 1998 we felt the need to do something different. Attempting to break the golden tekno rules, we gathered some crappy equipment and began sampling tiny bits of Charlies old record collection. Substance abuse made it difficult to properly connect the wires, but we managed to record a couple of C60 ferro cassettes eventually.  Some months later we selected the better parts to compile our conceptual cassette album. The only  criterium was that it had to  sound good enough on the car stereo. Copies were sent to our former tekno heroes all over the world (anonymously, though). More copies were accidentally left behind at our friends places, and record shops.

Elmnterre

| date: 14 March 1998

Playing live as Nimoy instead (not Unit Moebius, because the band had officially ceased to exist). Selling unlabeled audio cassettes at techno parties was a  common thing to do in the nineties. I had bought an ancient cassette copy machine to be able to deliver on demand. It took 3 minutes to complete a C60 copy, both sides at once. Ferro tapes survived the copy process more often, but sounded like mud through fog. Exactly enough tapes were sold to make up for train fares, beers and the price of the tape machine.
