It Sucks

| date: 22 April 2000

A 10 inch mini album for Stichting Mixer (Martijn Tellinga). Please no dancefloor material, but personal secrets. Searching through dusty shoeboxes with unlabeled cassettes and minidisks, selecting, cutting and arranging the bits and pieces to fit the time limits of a 10 inch record.

10 beelden in het Haagsche Bos

| date: 23 October 1999


Secretly, very early in the morning, walking the paths of a city park in Den Haag. 10 people place their artworks in different areas of the park. Some works are removed almost immediately but others are left untouched for more than a week !

Kaaiman

Bunker night at Kaaiman in Antwerpen (BE) with Unit Moebius (disguised as Sponaneous Twin Drive), Sulphur Surfer & DJ Charlie (Shitcluster).

I remember a serious discussion about electronic dance music, and  everyone was sitting in chairs.  Shitcluster had to ask the audience to stand up, before they started their demonstration of electronic dance music. 
Salò Mentale also played that evening.

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.

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.
