june 2008 release ; ... the “reissue(actually; those quotes are justified for once; this was never really available in the first place...) of amos & lepke b (the homosexuals) ’s modern shit tapes (remixes of by-the-hour production work the pair engineered in the early 80s) ...

this was previously only available in a pricey two-pack the the “artcoustics” book ; the disc now available by its lonesome. much linn-drum boom/bap, cut with plunderphonic audio snippets & tape-speed manipulations. kind of amazing, actually ; esp. given the time-period in which this music was executed ...

"will make you ill"
(cat no. plana-m 14tes.071)
digipack cd

edition of 500 copies

after surfacing briefly in 2007 in a very limited number of copies on slim-jewel-box together with the "artkoustics" catalogue, alga marghen is now proud to presents the final edition of modern shit, a very singular chapter in the amos/it's war boys/milk from cheltenham/homosexuals history. directly taken from the original it's war boys catalogue, here is one of the most obscure sonic works of the early 1980s, modern shit! first "issued" on tape (cat no. $21) this work circulated only privately among the close friends of the label and was never officially distributed. actually it represents one of the most intense and experimental outputs of this creative london period.

the idea was to create a contemporary "non-stop", vaguely in emulous contradiction to product by people like cerrone and biddulph (1970's disco queens). lepke and amos, the two minds behind this project (and 2/3 of the milk from cheltenham adventures), each constructed a half hour near-continuous non-stop using only the foulest materials. in those days they had their 8-track studio in a mouldy basement below brixton road, south london and they happened to occasionally record some awful wannabee pop bands. it was a truly horrible experience but with a good side. almost as soon as the idiots left the studio, lepke and amos would start re-mixing their music, often stealing and sticking it (suitably mangled) onto new tracks, the basis material for modern shit!

the cd is presented in a new digipack edition with full colour cover. final edition of 500 copies.

milk from cheltenham

triptych of poisoners

featuring:
victorr lounge
lepke buchwalter
salamander

producer:
xentos bentos

executive producer:
emanuele carcano

they've come together from the 4 corners of the world...

lepke is the man who does the impossible everythime he picks up a tin, carton, bottle or instrument. the first person with enough originality to adopt 'anything' to his own idiosyncratic style; still without peers in this world. retired to an obscure basement until the commercial success of the teaming with 'milk' brought him back full time' to music scene.

lounge makes rhythms that by this time need no words of praise with a wallop. that when felt, makes the usual praise words disintegrate, a mix of inestimable ability with feeling as wild as it is rare; this is probably the most compelling, impelling, propelling rendezvous of his talent on disc today.

salamander has that certain something that most people can never have even if they practice for an eternity. most important in his ~influence most endearing in his emotional impact and most convincing in his new found authority. usten him career around the bends and twists of 'crazy golf' where the rest of us would be just leaving the starting post. on this hearing he is a force to be reckoned with.

... of the leagues & leagues of fairly impenetrable stuff (mostly due to various smoke-screening tactics & sabotagings of forward-momentum) i rate this one as easily amongst the more rewarding sides, full of all kinds of murky goings-on, full of fried tape-mulch & assorted gerrymandering tactics ...

gus coma - color him coma (pd 27)

2cd with 8 page poster booklet
total time 2hr 22:44

cover by clive graham, poster by gus coma
released 2011

the first cd in this set is a reissue of an obscure cassette release from 1983 that was originally released in a small edition on the london based, it’s war boys label. this c60 consisted of 2 distinct halves. side 1 was formed around several mixes of an experimental track, constructed from a room-sized 24 track loop. a version of this track first appeared on the lp flagellation by the just measurers (who were c. d. greyt, yakkö banovic and narki brillans).

side 2 is a collage of mostly unused (and some remixed), excerpts from what became the title track of the milk from cheltenham lp, triptych of poisoners. this lp track consisted of a tape collage of the live mixdown of 17 cassette recordings of locked record grooves, simultaneously, with stray radio and an infernal matchbox. the full milk lp is now available on cd via alga marghen. both these lps were also originally it’s war boys projects.

as with other releases by these guys nobody worked under the same name twice, but if you are familiar with their soundworld then there will be no mystery, only astonishment. nearly all the session material here was engineered by chris grey, best known for his work with the homosexuals.

no production master was ever found for cd1, so one of the actual cassette edition had to be used in its place. however, whilst looking through the archive for the master tape, an alternative version of the tape was found, which although it followed a similar blueprint to cd1 it also contained some very different music, some primitive disco drum programming, and a somewhat more sophisticated sound quality. it was difficult to choose which version to release, so both versions appear here, but at the generous price of a single cd.

each cd also contains an additional much longer bonus track at the end that was originally intended as working material for the unfinished milk from cheltenham lp 2.

the guest musicians on this cd set are many and varied, but it’s all put together by gus coma, lepke b’s dwarfish cousin, who renounced show-biz to work as a heavy goods vehicle driver. all in, the material here is the strangest and most experimental music to come from the it’s war boys scene. expect gigantic tape loop symphonies, sundry plunderphonics, lo- fi sparks and the voice of jfk, a william burroughs interview (on one track), and a worn out teach yourself english tape. color him coma !
