When asked what the spiritual signifigance was, they replied that "it didn't have any"." -taken from Sigil Media

I expect the followers of this blog shall know already about Ain Soph as well as Nekrophile recs. This tape came out on this amazing label in 1986; at the time Ain Soph were certanily one of the first bands/artists experimenting with magik & electronics---esoteric messages through electronic music. You`ll find here 6 tracks of pure grotesque dark ambient mixing ritualistic sounds, hypno-elements of dreams and nightmares and complex layered structures that are created to deliver magikal elements and ritualistic practice.
Definitely one tape that made history in this scene.
In 1992 Nekrophile Records re-printed it on cd and then it was reprinted again by the French label Athanor back in the 2003 as a deluxe cd which came with a 40 page booklet.
There is an aural pleasure in this tape as well as an obscure sense of dogmatic horror.
you`ll choose what side to explore...
The music of the project Margaret Freeman is a good mix of old-type industrial with some musical researches coming from the grey area (darkwave, no wave, electropop, etc etc)... Lots of good ideas and musical styles here. Unfortunately I have little information about this band or project that seems to have come from Belgium during the beginning of the 90s, and released this good tape called Academy Serial on the Belgian label 3Rio Art [Personal label of Hybryds] back in the year 1990. I tried using the power of internet to get some info, but Margaret Freeman remains still a mystery to me [other than the lineup having consisted of the artists Pascal Jeannet & Philippe Martineau] --- anybody out there with more info??? this tape is just great anyway...

Carsten Olbrich aka Ebu is a German musician who founded Ebu's Music label in 1988, and had a number of releases with several monikers and bands.
After some appearances on stage with the own family-band "Familie Olbrich" and being guitar-player in his first school-band "Trümmerhaufen" (1984), Carsten Olbrich joined the band Top Of Pyramid in 1986. His first solo-project Wild Roses existed in 1988 and changed it's musical attitude and it's name into Always Welcome (1989), which now, in 2009, still has revival-plans. In 1989, he founded the post-NDW-project Schmertz Der Welten, which was his main project, until it brokes up in 1998. In the new decade after 1989 Carsten Olbrich choosed a new main-artist-name King Ebu as successor of "Always Welcome". In 1995 he founded the punkrock-band Die Traktor as guitar player, which he left in friendchip in summer 2000. Mr. Welten was meant as the solo-project of the leader of Schmertz Der Welten, but later in 1997 he found the new solo-artist-name Mr. Ebu for psychedelic-electronic-dark-spacy & mainly instrumental music, which lasts until now. Not mentioned yet on Discogs, but alive since 2006, is "Herr Ebu" - a totally different musicstyle with german-sung-pop, dada, trash. Also in 2006 Carsten Olbrich took influence for the revival of the punkrock-band Hacke Peters, Die, where he currently plays bass-guitar.

This tape came out on the Belgian label Red Neon Tapes back in 1992... Side A consists of beautiful and calmly still ambient music made with a rather simple synth; while side B is more of an experiment with vocals and synth programming. Enjoy it!
