MC archive (part 2)

Wednesday, 13 October 2010

I think that in the box that Marthy gave me are about 500 cassette tapes. About 400 are recorded by Marty himself, with some of the best records that he bought over the years. The other 100 are compilations that he received from other collectors. Like i already said: this is a musical goldmine beyond your imagination.

I will make some compilations of all this material, of course, but at the moment i have no time because i have work to do. Which is not a bad thing, because the past few months i have not been getting much jobs. I am building and painting in an office of an old friend, who herad from a friend of a friend that i was doing this kind of work. Very funy: last time we had close contact we did a magazine together. His carreer had a slightly other curve than mine.
Here is a song from the MC archive that sounded a bit out of place. The music on the tapes is mainly sixties garage, psychedelic, punk or beat, but this is a French twist, by The Pinguins:

The names of the bands and the titles of the songs are very often a problem. Often only the band names are written on the label, but some names are missing (fiteen names and seventeen songs, for example), and since i often don’t know more than one band, i cannot figure out who is playing what.
