v.a.-Water and Iron Scraps-(international compilation-H.S.S.G. label-Italy-c60 +booklet-1996)

This compilation was assembled by Giulio of H.S.S.G. tape+zine label in Southern Italy. Giulio worked on it during 1995. His intention was to compose a compilation with graphix+poetries inspired by the subjects: iron and water, and the consequences of them: Rust.
The final result is pretty amazing! I included here all the graphix. Almost all of the texts are in English. The cover of the zine was a hard plastic bag made in 3 parts and filled with water. One part contained the tape sealed in a plasticized cardboard box with a colour cover, and the back of the zine was made with a piece of chicken wire (metal grate attached to the back cover). Quite an amazing package! You`ll see the pictures here. As for the music: a very good mix of electronic-experimental music including those names: M Nomized, Lunus, Mlehst, Hermit, and few more. Some of the tracks are a real journey trying to (in a way or another) deliver to us some rust or iron/water. Some of the graphix are very nice too. I have no idea how many copies were printed by this label back in 1996.
