Recommended this week

Straight from the 80s Belgian cassette culture scene, here comes THE MISZ.
After the success of the “Eddy Merckz” re-release LP (on OnderStroom earlier in 2010), EE Tapes proudly present this Extended Play  ( 7”, 33 rpm, 4 songs), containing the best of the 1984 “It Ain’t All Garbage” debut cassette.
The Misz was one of those truly authentic 80s DIY bands, dealing with their life and the world through music, self-producing limited editions of tapes which they would send around the globe. With a few guitars, a drumcomputer  and an old synth (or was it just this casio?), they created strange minimal/ synth-/electro wave songs, with catchy melodies, fine male/female harmonics, and sometimes political, sometimes nonsensical lyrics. Some say: “reminiscent of Tuxedomoon, Trisomie 21, Pseudocode and Minimal Compact”.
