Edition Block - EB 120
Böhmler is agerman artist, born in 1939 and living in Hamburg. He studied at the academies of arts Stuttgart and Duesseldorf and was pupil of Joseph Beuys. From 1974 to 2005 he was a professor at Academy of Fine Arts Hamburg.
"Böhmler was one of the first artists in Germany, who were interested in modern techniques of the picture reproduction. By simply asking for the mechanisms of the technology and by playing with the possibilities of the medium he makes attentive on rules and functions, which escape the perception otherwise usually. Its handling radio, cassette device, camera, film or video camera is ironical." (worldlingo.com)
Recorded with the almighty Holger Hiller (collage, production, mixing and remixing) on the excellent berliner label Edition Block

RE-UP oct. 2012 VA - IMPULSE ISSUE 7 (1995)

Impulse was a magazine published by Mark Crumby (member of the Industrial band Konstruktivists founded by Glenn Michael Wallis, early member of Whitehouse and involved in the early TG experience) dedicated to non-mainstream electronic music (1991-1996).
A compilation of sound collage, spoken word, proto-techno, noise rock, industrial music and alt J-pop.

* Bodychoke : Kevin Tomkins (Sutcliffe Jügend, Whitehouse), Paul Taylor, Gary Kean, Jamie Hitchens, and Mike Alexander. Dark, violent and intense "rock" based material.
* Secret Archives Of The Vatican : Vince Millett, Louis Counter
* Mlehst (All Brentnall) : English experimental noise project founded in 1991 which released many cassettes and vinyls (often in small quantities) until the project started to wind down in the late 1990s.
* Jack Or Jive : Founded in 1989, this japanese band only has two members, Chako and Makoto Hattori. While Makoto remains mostly behind the scenes handling technical aspects of the music, Chako is a visual spectacle of wild or spikey hair, flowing priestess gowns, strange talismans and heavy, morbidly styled makeup.
* Alan Moore, regarded by many as the greatest ever comic-book writer ("Watchmen", "V for Vendetta" and "From Hell"), Moore has also shown a major interest in magick and the occult and has worked with a number of musicians to release his particular philosophies in musical form, like Tim Perkins (who recorded 5 records with A. Moore) and David J (Bauhaus, The Jazz Butcher, Love And Rockets, The Sinister Ducks)
* 70 Gwen Party : Experimental rock band from UK, centered around guitarist Victor N'Dip.
*Tea Culture : English experimental sound collage group, based around a duo of Neil Davies and Phil Todd. Primitive version of turntablism.
* Cabbage Headaka Si Begg
