Details

Ongehoord is announcing it’s 2nd release. After the ‘Narwal-Nirvana’ release in November 2017. Jeroen Vermandere has again managed to create a compilation of unknown music from the Dutch cassette culture. In 2018 Ongehoord will release 3 records featuring the essence and great variety of music that Deadline Paranoia has been making in the years they were active. The record is scheduled to be released on 30th of April and is featuring a band that was active in Amsterdam from 86 till 88. Their cassette releases were self distributed and due to the fact that they only played live on WHS (dub squat radio) and on the corner of the street during a national celebration day (queens day) they have remained very unknown. The music was recorded at home with a great variety of instruments and self made sound explorations. Except the drummer of this band, he was the only one who has been recorded in a sound studio in a suburb called De Bijlmer. The other musicians would record tapes with sound material, drones field recordings etc. on top of these sound collages they played live with different instruments like bass guitar, acoustic bass, clarinet, radio, synthesizer, bongo, surna, organ etc. ‘the list is endless’. Each musician would be responsible for playing 4 instruments and during a few tracks there has been a number of 8 musicians who joined the jam sessions. In the end a four track recorder was used to produce the music and distribute the albums in small quantities. The layering of sound and rhythms creates a rather complicated sense of rhythm that one will experience while listening to the music of Deadline Paranoia. The psychedelic structure of the music also comes from the fact that the use of drugs has been very important for the musicians playing in the band. The band would smoke marijuana for at least a few hours before playing instruments. (by jeroen vermandere)
