brian peter george st. john le baptiste de la salle eno aka brian eno aka eno: the ambivalent collection and some textures


for your pleasure here are two collections of far-flung and rather rare sounds that brian eno recorded and released between 1974 and 1994 on a wide variety of labels and for a lot of obscure purposes.


first of all: the ambivalent collection is a compilation of soundtrack recordings, one-off-7-inches and some in-studio experiments that was released in 1994. most of you will be quite familiar with some of the tracks, but unless you own this cd there always remains some uncertainty. 


most of these recordings have been executed just by brian eno and his machines, but additionally featured are the likes of robert fripp, phil collins, pat palladin, judy nylon, daniel lanois, and even the baader-meinhof group. you can figure it all out in the liner notes.


so here we gogo:

01 - are they thinking of me? 5:34
02 - i fall up 3:44
04 - some words 4:36
05 - under 5:22
06 - over 3:50
07 - dover beach 4:39
08 - r.a.f. 3:04
09 - slow water 3:22
10 - untitled 2:07 (listen directly in your browser)
11 - chemin de fer 2:01
12 - empty landscape 1:26
13 - reactor 1:44
14 - the secret 1:15
15 - don't look back 1:00 (listen directly in your browser)
16 - marseilles 1:30
17 - strong flashes of light 3:08
18 - more volts 2:53
19 - mist / rhythm 3:37
20 - seven deadly finns 3:11
21 - the lion sleeps tonight (wimoweh) 2:49

bonus tracks:
22 - #9 dream - here come the warm jets (from the 1992 album let it come down!)
23 - pascal comelade and richard pinhas - here come the warm jets (from the 1999 album oblique sessions II) (listen directly in your browser)

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


and second of all: the album textures is an extremely rare album that brian eno recorded for the library music company "standard music library" for licensing music in television programs and films. the album was purely intended for "business to business" and was never commercially released for the public. 

 
eleven of these tracks are unpublished elsewhere, ten tracks are actually edits or different versions of pieces published on music for films III, the shutov assembly and neroli. at least four different versions of the cd with different covers and different design are circulating amongst collectors since 1999, but the music and the sequence of tracks is always the same.

01 - soft dawn 2:19
02 - the water garden 2:53
03 - shaded water 3:16 (with roger eno)
04 - suspicions 4:14
06 - landscape with haze 4:06

ptôse production présente: assemblée générale 2: an international tape compilation released in france in 1981: featuring ericka irganon, wolfgang wiggers, die form, christian bitenc and many more

in 1981 the french label ptôse production asked the usual suspects of the post-industrial-tape-shock-and-horror community plus some friends and relatives to contribute some noise to an appsouloudely openminded compilation of whatever the artists wanted to share with the world, and they released assemblée générale 2 the same year as a numbered but not limited tape edition supposing that everyone was allowed to copy and to redistribute it. wolfgang wiggers of the worldfamous german postkrautpostiggyvelvets band kastrierte philosophen was one of the artists involved, his copy was number 16, and he handcopied the tape and rankxeroxed the cover and gave away copies of the tape for free: this is how i got mine.
so the music in the download section has been digitalized from a copy of a copied tape, some of the pictures were not included and i had to save them from discogs, and that is of course the place where you can find a lot of additional information about the artists involed. but this=here package is a nice package anyway, delivered to you as i received it some thirtyfive years ago.
as the music on this tape comprises just about 55 minutes, i decided to include a bonus track that you can take or ignore: a 20-minute collage of some experimental work i did with my band sturclub in the years of 2002 throughout to 2006 featuring werner voran, david dufour, uwe buechele, a.r.t.i.s.t.l.a.m.a.i.s.c.h., bankleer, andreas, oliver prechtl, albrecht/d. and some more. additional information on these artists can be found by using the hashtags in the right column, or by using your favourite search engine.

so here we gogo for assemblée générale 2:

face droite
01-d1 - anode/cathode - of the passive voice through the light

ZERO KAMA - THE SECRET EYE OF L.A.Y.L.A.H. as it was released on tape, vinyl and cd from 1984 to 2014; plus some bonus tracks

i got a brandnew house on the roadside, and it's made out of human skulls. here is the austrian post-industrial sound unit ZERO KAMA with some music executed solely on human bones. the zero kama project most of alley consisted of the discrowleyan mind of one michael dewitt oder -watt from (you guessed it) austria. he himself and him augminted and hilped out by some friends recorded only a rather manageable amount of release, and all of them are rather hard to find these days.
for today i would like to share with you three different versions of his album THE SECRET EYE OF L.A.Y.L.A.H. from 1984 plus all five tracks released on 10-inch-ep in 2001. some more of his music may be found in varuoios hidden places, but this is all i got. way down beloawed you can downlord these four releases separately, each with all the tracks in their alltooglowriassly versions ass mp3s with 320 kbps, and all including photos and scans that are not shown on this=here page.
though the versions on cd and vinyl may sound rather simillar, their look and feel are completelay different in the most interesting ways. and though the version on tape is offering the same tracks in the same order as the versions on cd or vinyl it is about 15 minutes longer than them both. and the 10-inch of course is someting coumpleteleye different.

####################################

so let us start with the vinyl version of THE SECRET EYE OF L.A.Y.L.A.H.

01 - death posture
02 - atavism dream
03 - night of matter
04 - inauguration of the pleasure dome (listen directly in your browser)
05 - love alway yieldeth
06 - azure-lidded woman (pregnant womb of non)
07 - hassan i sabbah
08 - starlit mire
09 - winged eye hadit
10 - love alway hardeneth
11 - town of pyramids (night of pan)
 


this=here the second mix from 1988 comes with some crickles and cracks you will get to love on the long run. i bought my version way back in the early nineties at the stuttgart gemini shop at a reasonable price and i used to entertain my demons with these sounds ever since sins then.

#######################################

secoundleye we got THE SECRET EYE OF L.A.Y.L.A.H. with the same tracks in the same order as they were released as a compact disc in 1991. the sound is a little bit clearer and there are no snackles and props all through out. these may be different mixes to those on the vinyl version, but i can not tell for sure. 

01 - death posture
02 - atavism dream
03 - night of matter
04 - inauguration of the pleasure dome
05 - love alway yieldeth

up next is the tape-version of THE SECRET EYE OF L.A.Y.L.A.H. from 1984 as it was originally intended and recorded; it is about fifteen minutes longer as the versions above, though it has the same eleven tracks in the same running order. as i do not own this tape mybeautifulself i downloaded it from tape attack as some muted 192-kbps-mp3-tracks and blew them up. here we gogo:

01 - death posture
02 - atavism dream
03 - night of matter
04 - inauguration of the pleasure dome
05 - love alway yieldeth

least but not last, though after all at last at least at last anyway, we got the 10-inch-ep-album the goatherd and the beast compiling some sounds that had been released on compilations or obscure tapes between 1985 and 1988. 

here is what you'll get:

01 - prayer of zos
02 - seven nights of tantra

four some more information about the song et cetera et cetera you may want to look up their number in the wikipedia through the looking glass bathroom window, bla bla.

the psychodererelick sounds of loop: the peel sessions and some more (1987-1990)

i always loved the monolithic monotaneously metarepeating riffs of the loop. they sounded and appeared like an unconcerned version of spacemen 3 or the jesus and mary chain, and though they were as deeply rooted in 60s psychedeliria and spaceartrock as those units loop were much more accessible and down-to-earth.
in their high time between 1985 and 1991 they released four albums and a handful of singles, all of them are highly recommended. to give you a general idea of their music i decided to share their three john peel sessions and to add them up with three tracks from one of their maxi cds. it is not all too hard to find their releases, and they are not all too expensive: so go ahead!

so listen:
