One of the highlights this year has been the publication of "This Is Supposed To Be A Record Label" by Timeless Editions. The author is (broken) music genius Frans de Waard. It is mainly about Frans' time at the core of Staalplaat R"This Is Supposed To Be A Record Label"ecords and also covering his time as label boss of Korm Plastics. It is refreshingly written with great insight, thought and honesty - a lot like the sounds Frans creates.
It must have been the 1986 compilation cassette "Wolfsangel" where I first came across the work of Kapotte Muziek and since then I've followed the work of Frans de Waard.
Since Xmas 2015 I have been in correspondence with Frans always asking him for something "special" for MuhMur Radio and last month he kindly allowed me to broadcast "Lions", a live performance of Modelbau from June 2016 at Wolvega Lions Club. It was originally put up for free download for a few hours via Frans' website.
The playlist features 2 Kapotte Muziek pieces both titled "Untitled". The first track is from the "Wolfsangel" 2xC90 compilation and the second from "Régénération Dégénérescence", the 1997 double CD compilation on French label Kaon. The solo Frans de Waard piece (Track 7) appears on the 2xC60 compilation "Les Illusions Magnetiques" on Ukranian label Quasi Pop. The full title is :
#1. State Conspiracy #2. Traitor #3. Police Terror #4. No Cops No Masters #5. Servants #6. Tax The Fuck #7. Kick/Kill/Kick #8. Er (Etc) Er #9. ? #10. Track Seven #11. Disco Chant/Beat #12. The Richness Of Poverty #13. Plastic Bag Take Away #14. Traitor (Again) #15. Smoking
21 July 2016 was the first day of the School Holidays so before the broadcast Tamsin and the kids ran wild around Dartington Estate Gardens … And Chris Booth was at the studio to assist in all things technical.

This broadcast features an exclusive playing of the Copley Medal performance at Ende Tymes Festival, New York on June 3 this year. Copley Medal is the solo project of Dais Records manager Ryan Martin. (The great US label that keeps putting out classic vinyl by Deviation Social + Coum Transmissions). Ryan also used to run Robert & Leopold, a bijou CDr & tape label. In the past Ryan has recorded and released as On A Clear Day and York Factory Complaint.
This live performance was captured by Frederico Escalante.
Also in the mix is a little "tribute" to my old friend John Murphy with 2 tracks, one by Lost Dominion Lost (From the compilation LP "Berlin Bruit") and the Zye Ye Ye single put out by Le Rey Records in 1981. An often overlooked project, which sounds like John caught some studio downtime whilst recording with Shriekback.
The Andre Stitt track comes from an old compilation tape on Texan label ND. ND#7 was an audio edition of the mail art/performance art/sound magazine.
I have put up a picture of the stuff I play, a lot of folk ask if I am playing the actual record / CD etc or playing downloaded files …. Let me state : I never play files.
