radioheads attacked!


Rodeohood says: "Yesterday, around 20:00, in the neighborhoud of the Radio Scorpio Studio, some aggressive radiohats attacked the studio people, injuring two radioheads on their radiohead. The radiohats demanded to free the mp3 before oct. 10. Our informant confirmed that aggression and radiohate was in the air. As a result of this sample of radioheath, there were no Netwaves, but yes Notwaves."
Hear you next week!

porn music for the masses


i choose this title, not because it's the subtitle of one of the most downloaded netlabel issues "Wakka Chikka Wakka Chikka 1 [csr049]" (146153 downloads untill today),
not because this title refers to these provoking titles/names on it:
Baise et Rebaise Moi - Lubna Lux
Brainwank (Psycho Foo Edit) - Colektro
Gloria - Pearls of Joy
Half An Hour Is For Free - The Devil In Miss Jones (featuring Fats Bob Trumpet)
Hatesex - Mr. Juno
Ici la Femme (XXX Mix) Louise Vertigo - The Lounge King
It Was A Dream - Ton Rückert
The Love God - Martinibomb
The Porn King - The Funky Filter
Silk And Sweat - Thybbuk
Take Me Now! - Nick Chapman
Vuluke Khall (Instrumental Version) - DJ Bootsie
Whose Fantasy Is This, Anyways? - Mr Melvis (featuring R. Stevie Moore and Ms. Demeanor)
not because there's a call for submission for a second edition of this album with the same subtitle, hosted by WM Recordings,
not because the brain behind this initiative is the late, naughty netlabel Comfort Stand Recordings with other outstanding compilations,
but just to attract a few more visitors ...


download legally an illegal album


The people at Krill Konzern Recordings have constructed a new license: License pro Piracy / Licence Pro Piratage.
Krill: "Although we authorize and encourage you to do so, taking this CD, copying it or exchanging it freely will make you a pirate. Because piracy is also a matter of rights and freedom, we choose the pro-piracy licence."
In my opinion this is not really true, I think this act does not make the listener a pirate, but the artists make themselve a pirate ...
While you download the excellent Various Artists album "From The Eastwood" [KK013] and listen to the very New Wave-ish track "Draft" by Bayern Boom Beat (under), you can read the whole statement here.

Vlaanderen heeft nu een digitaal muziekarchief, tenminste een databank met info over vinyl en cd-releases. Hoe ge aan de muziek kunt komen, is niet duidelijk ;-). Allee, ge kunt u nu blind gapen op technische fichkes. Maar wat mij toch heeft gecharmeerd, is dat ze hun huiswerk heel degelijk hebben gedaan. Ik heb de test gedaan met de beste nederlandstalige plaat van de laatste 30 jaar, en ze zit er begot in, met foto en al (voor de muziek moet ge bij mij zijn, ik heb ze handmatig zelf gedigitaliseerd). Trouwens, de hoofdtitel is 1000 titels, maar elk exemplaar (oplage van 1000) had nog eens een aparte titel, de mijne heette "Télépop", die van de jeugdklub "De impressario's van de avant-garde". Enig geklik verder komen we zelfs het nevenprojekt van de Kommeniste tegen, The Plant, maar van hun ander projekt, de Priesterarbeiders, geen spoor, maar tja, die had ik van horen zeggen ...

De volgende test heeft me dan helemaal van slag gemaakt, ik dacht dat dit kleinood voor de eeuwigheid vergeten zou zijn, maar niet dus: B9. Probeer zeker "Rel Rex" met "Program" ergens vast te krijgen, vooruit voor z'n tijd, en blijkbaar een van de eerste uitspattingen van Klootperw ...
Deze verzamelaar wordt deze herfst zelfs heruitgebracht. Wat een wondere wereld!

new Netwaves are coming


While we wait for the new programmation of Radio Scorpio, and the new season of Netwaves, we're warming up our ears with some interim emissions for the rest of september. Expect some "best of" netlabeltunes from the summer of 2007 and/or quotes from last season.
After a wet summer holiday, Netwaves started the first monday of september with the beautiful, dreamy mix by [in]anace "Radio GAGA" [submix024] on the now defunct netlabel Subsource.
For the new season, we also welcome new radiohead Didier aka. Creon.

'open music search' box


I just added (in the right sidebar, under the top 10 topbits) the very handsome 'open music search' box, made by David Holmes with a little help from Google Co-op.
With this box you can find Copyleft, Creative Commons, Open Source, and Public Domain media, software, news and services. To see if it fits your needs, put as an example 'bswc' in the box, and click 'search'.
You can also put this search box to your website for finding legal, free and podsafe music resources. Grab the code here.

2 more podcasts


Just added 2 more podcasts at the 'links > listen' section:
Machtdose and bleepshow.
