Various Artists - New Noise Year's Party (3 x C-60 cassette) A01 - H64 A02 - Export B01 - Condom B02 - Iron Brotherhood C01 - Victor/im C02 - mistery guest This 3 cassette set is a report on a small festival organised by Club Moral on 31 December 1986. Four of the bands had earlier played together in Birmingham on an event organised by Condom (Mermaid, 26 September 1986). Apart from the recordings not very much information on the event was to be found in our archives. "With bleeding ears from old to new" certainly sounds like an excellent idea and I would definitely be willing and able to play. As Ingo is looking to organise something in Germany between December 20th and January 7th the two could be combined very well. (letter from Condom, 15 November 1986) Mike wrote me that you're going to invite me to a live event on New Year at Club Moral. Please confirm. Please also confirm if you are interested in a H64 performance at Club Moral; I enclosed a demo tape in the above mentioned package. (letter from Victor/im, 3 December 1986) H64 is a German project by Thomas Beck. Iron Brotherhood is a Scottish project by Jess Hopkins. Victor/im is a German project by Ingo Techmeier. Condom is an English project by Mike Dando. Export were a Dutch/English collaboration, but I don't remember who. The Mystery Guest were Club Moral. This episode was posted in three separate uploads, this is the third one.

Club Moral featuring as a backing group with Coup De Grace on vocals, delay-machines, tapes and pyrotechnics. The events performed on were In Vitro by Club Moral, Altenberg by Cthulhu Records, Metabletica by V2 and The Bunker by Ret Marut. Since this tape is merely a documentation, the sound-quality may very between various recordings. (Text from cassette cover) This cassette was published in an edition of 113 copies. Some tracks were recorded stereo from P.A., some binaural and some plain mono on a walkman within the audience. The tracks performed live were previously released on two Coup De Grace cassettes: "Commencement / Corpse Education" (Introduction-March, Powermarch, Surrexit Dominus, Combat Zone, Finale) and "Anthems for Doomed Youth" (No Hope, End Sequence), some were previously released on various Inner-X-Musick compilations. The phonecalls were made while making arrangements for the In Vitro festival, the radio transmission was an interview at Radio Centraal in Antwerpen. The Tattoo Bar Gustaf recordings were made in a tattoo bar in the Antwerp red light district where Michael Moynihan had the Coup De Grace logo tattooed on the back of his shoulder. On one of the recordings you can hear Gustaf chasing away his aged German Shepherd dog who took a pleasure in eating bloodied tissues. We have been in contact with Coup De Grace since 1985, exchanging tapes and printed matter. When organising the 1986 In Vitro exhibition and concerts (see Club Moral Stocklist episode 058) we thought of inviting them to play there as well. Since budgets were rather small for this kind of events back then, we decided to team up with some other organisations to set up a small tour and share the travel cost. It was also decided that Michael Moynihan would just come by himself, and Club Moral would play as a backing band during the European shows. In the end Cthulhu Records, V2 and Ret Marut/Jazzbunker booked this unique collaboration for 3 more shows after the In Vitro II Festival. There was about a week of free time after the first show in Belgium and the last 3 performances occurred in a span of 2 days. If you look at the dates you will notice that the two Holland confrontations took place the same evening. This was due to the fact that after the dates had been arranged, V2 decided to change the days of their Metabletica festival. So we did the show in Rotterdam at 10:00pm, and then afterwards packed everything up and drove to V2 in 's Hertogenbosch, where the last performance was done (starting at about 1:30 in the morning). The components of the confrontations were as follows: AUDIO: Backing tapes, Vocals, Synthesizers & Electronics. VISUAL: Slides and Motion Pictures. Surprisingly enough after a whole day of driving (from Germany to Rotterdam, then playing the show there, then driving to V2) the last confrontation was probably the most powerful of all... (Text from Third Annual Report 12 31 86 by Coup De Grace) From about summer 1987 until winter 1988 Coup De Grace set up a European Office in an abandoned part of the Club Moral factory. Michael Moynihan was living there, first in companionship with Zenobia and later teaming up with Hamish Halley aka SerVex 23. Part of an attic space was rebuilt into lodgings, office and a workshop. The rent was remarkably cheap and the landlord didn't really bother about anything going on, so any kind of activity was possible. In October 1987 Coup De Grace was invited by AMVK to perform at an evening of Bar Europa, organised by NL-Centrum in Amsterdam. Hamish Halley set up a leather artefact and special clothing workshop and successfully performed his Prince Albert piercing at the Club Moral Quarters using a 10ga needle and a lot of will power. Thomas Thorn briefly stayed there and a one and only concert of Slave State was organised in a newly discovered basement underneath Club Moral. Basically both Michael Moynihan and Hamish Halley were living in Belgium illegally, which made them decide in 1989 to return to the US and New Zealand respectively. Michael Moynihan continues to publish music and books: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Moynihan_(journalist) Zenobia lives in Boston and works in the film industry. Hamish Halley is now in charge of Flesh Wound: www.fleshwound.co.nz Thomas Thorn is an active priest of the Church of Satan: www.churchofsatan.com

Club Moral - Live Outtakes (C-90 cassette) A-01 - Oorlog A-02 - Nazis of the Night A-03 - 4 Safe Walls A-04 - Le Locataire A-05 - Hunting Man A-06 - 19 Keys A-07 - Ik Daag U Uit B-01 - Oorlog B-02 - Man Heeft Angst B-03 - Each Man Kills the Thing She Loves B-04 - Hail to Thee Black Prince B-05 - Lies B-06 - Here Lives My House B-07 - L'Age D'Or This is a collection of live recordings throughout Belgium, United Kingdom, Holland and Germany in 1985 and 1986. Some Club Moral classics are included, and some are unique or rare versions of other tracks. Side 1; Oorlog was recorded at the Batschkapp in Frankfurt-am-Main on 24 April 1986. On the way there we blew the engine of our car and arrived some 15 minutes before we were scheduled to play. The support act was a guy called Seewo, with a chainsaw who accidently cut his hand. Nazis of the Night was recorded at the Ambulance Station in London on 1 June 1985, a festival organised by Recloose Organisation. Several other bands played as well. All the time we stayed at the Ambulance Station, we had to block the kitchen where we were supposed to sleep on the floor because a small army of bums steadily tried to break in the door looking for food and other valuables. Our driver slept in his car for three days but still the car was burgled, while we were playing. 4 Safe Walls was recorded at the Berlin Atonal Festival on 17 February 1985. Among other bands playing were Etant Donnés, Laibach, Test Department and Gerechtigkeitsliga. Le Locataire was a performance on the occasion of an AMVK-exhibition at Time Based Arts in Amsterdam on 1 May 1985. Two days later we played at Staalplaat, who made a good cassette from the show there. Hunting Man was recorded at the Jazzbunker in Rotterdam on 30 November 1985. 6de Kolonne also played in this ex-biker hellhole. 19 Keys was recorded in Leguit, Antwerpen on 19 January 1986, a night organised by Hugo Roelandt. It is a rare calling of the 19 Enochian Keys in Dutch. During the night the power failed a couple of times, during our performance the main switchboard finally burned out. Ik Daag U Uit was recorded at AntiChambres in Gent on 13 June 1986. This exhibition and night of performances was an artists' statement against the posh "Chambres d'Amis" exhibition organised by Jan Hoet. In our performance DDV was locked in a metal cage which he pulled over the floor himself by ropes attached to the wall. The sound is produced by contact microphones glued to the metal. Side 2; Oorlog was recorded at the Mermaid in Birmingham on 29 September 1985. A festival organised by Con-Dom, who played also as were Victor/im and Iron Brotherhood. When we showed up at the venue, already three local Teenybop bands were moving in their equipment and setting up the stage. There was a discussion with the Indian owner of the place, and finally he settled for the 'International' bands. Too bad for him only a handful of people showed up and they hadn't expected that kind of noise. Man Heeft Angst was recorded at Vooruit in Gent on 26 October 1985 on the occasion of "Nuit Erotique". It is actually a Dutch version of Therapist Fears and came with a Super8film. Each Man Kills the Thing She Loves is a live cut-up, recorded on the same event. Hail to Thee Black Prince was recorded at Staalplaat in Amsterdam on 3 May 1985. Lies was recorded at the Mermaid in Birmingham on 26 September 1986, it is a poem by convicted murderer Jack Henry Abbott. Here Lives My House was also recorded at the Mermaid. L'Age D'Or was recorded at the Stadsschouwburg in Maastricht on 1 November 1986 as an integral part of an AMVK-installation. All recordings were made by Club Moral and are either binaural stereo or PA-mix recordings. No remixing or re-editing done. 4 Safe Walls and Nazis of the Night are originally by The Parts, lyrics by Erik Vloeberghs.

DDV's Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar is a daily listing of events in history until this day. It was first published in 1985. It involves no audio, but for your pleasure we include a video from a 1985 sculpture by DDV. "Carruga" was a large sculpture for the "Automobiënnale>" at the Middelheim Open Air Museum in Antwerpen. It was first used in a basic version for a performance during AMVK's 1983 exhibition "Hoeren en Profeten". For the Middelheim exhibition a large metal cage was added, and a real Deutz diesel truck engine was captured inside. During the 100 days of the exhibition, the engine was left running in the otherwise quiet park. After the exhibition several attempts were made to find a definitive spot for the sculpture but all of these failed. In the end DDV ripped the metal cage to pieces in the late 1980's. When the initial Club Moral premises were abandoned in 1993, "Carruga" finally ended in the trash. All that remains is a short VHS video movie with noise soundtrack by DDV. Every page of the first edition of the Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar listed 7 days and one picture. There was a reviewed copy of the Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar in 1987 and an update with new entries only in 1988. The 1989 edition of the Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar was an 'all-memorials' issue, listing only events that happened 5, 10, 25, 50, 100,.... years ago. The 1990 edition of the Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar listed only events about 90 killers and was subtitled "90 Killers for the 90s". The 1991 edition of the Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar listed only events about artists, musicians, writers and filmmakers. The 1992 -and last- edition was an index and listed all names and the days they appeared until then in the Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar. Today the Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar is a huge database file with 8817 entries about 5511 people; 2405 births, 1998 facts and 4414 deaths. The database has been used in 1998 by V2 to build an 'unreliable website' for their "DEAF" festival, subtitled "The Art of the Accident". The Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar has been available throughout 2007 as a daily blog on When I was Buying You a Drink with additional photos taken by DDV in the past eight years. Between 1999 and 2007 DDV has taken over 25.000 pictures with various digital cameras. On this blog he posted one picture every day, taken on that specific day in a random year between 1999 and 2007, as well as a listing of all the events for that day. You can search the Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar blog for a certain day by using the "Blog Archive" on the right hand side of the page, or you can search for a name, a place or whatever by using the search box on the top left of the page and clicking "Blog Search". The Birth(+)Fact(x)Death(-)Calendar blog will not be updated and remains on the Blogspot system "as is". The title from the blog was taken from a song by the Mekons, "When I Was Buying You a Drink Where Were You ?"

In all 15 issues of Force Mental were printed, some spare copies are still available from our WebShop Tal Para Qual. Tragala Perro! is the title of an etching by Goya. "He who lives amongst men will be irremediably vexed. If he wants to avoid it he will have to go and live in the mountains, but when he is there he will discover that to live alone is vexations." "Existen varios manuscritos contemporaneos que explican las láminas de los Caprichos. El que se encuentra en el Museo del Prado se tiene como autógrafo de Goya, pero parece más bien despistar y buscar un significado moralizante que encubra significados más arriesgados para el autor. Otros dos, el que perteneció a Ayala y el que se encuentra en la Biblioteca Nacional, realzan la parte más escabrosa de las láminas. * Explicación de esta estampa del manuscrito del Museo del Prado: El que viva entre hombres será geringado irremediablemente: si quiere evitarlo habrá de irse a habitar a los montes y cuando esté allí conocerá también que esto de vivir solo es una geringa. * Manuscrito de Ayala: Intentan unos frailes curar a un pobre Marcos, colgándole al cuello una reliquia y echándole lavativas por fuerza. * Manuscrito de la Biblioteca Nacional: No le echan mala lavativa a cierto Juan lanas unos frailes que galantean a su mujer y le ponen un taleguillo al cuello a manera de reliquia para que se cure y calle. La mujer se ve detrás cubierta con un velo y un monstruo de enorme cornamenta preside la función autorizandolo todo nuestro Padre Prior." From Force Mental 13 (1986): Ik, Kapitein Hakenkruis = I, Captain Hook'n'Cross. 86 tekens op een verdomde lijn, de toekomst hoort ons toe, want nu bepaal IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, hier hoe goed of hoe slecht U iets begrijpt, U zwijgt en slikt wat IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, U in de muil stop. 86 marks on one damned line, the future belongs to us, for now on I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, will command here what You will understand or not understand, either well or not so well. You will shut up and swallow what I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS put You in the muzzle. And if You thought, als u zonodig al eens denkt dat U nog opmerkingen moet uitbraken of tegenstrubbelingen uit de pudding laten rollen, want pudding dat zijn slechts Uw gezichten, en beeldt U eens in een kwak pudding (chocolade) op een paar vette witte lillende billen van een persoon met 4 meter bekkenomtrek, en druk daar Uw gezicht maar eens in, haal nu diep adem en geniet van Uw gezicht zoals IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, er van geniet als Gij in Mijn Aanschijns staat. So if you ever thought You should vomit remarks or let difficulties roll out of the pudding, because pudding that are Your faces, and imagine You in a blob of pudding (chocolate) on a pair of fat white lilling buttocks of a person with 13 feet of pelvis-outline, and press Your face in that and breathe deep and enjoy Your face like I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, enjoy it. I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, stand before Your Appearance. What then would You expect but despise, did You really believe I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, can stand just one of You, just one?, maybe one, one I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, never met and never will meet. The best I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, get along with people I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, never met, sometimes through mail slight tolerance might appear, but undoubtedly shrinking as Your body becomes a repulsing spot on my retina. Wat had U dan anders verwacht als minachting, dacht U echt dat IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, er een, maar dan ook een van jullie kon rieken of zien?, misschien een, een die IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, nog nooit zag en nooit zal zien, IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, ga het best om met mensen die IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, nog nooit zag en nooit zal zien. IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, ga het best om met mensen die IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, nooit zie, soms kan via de post een lichte tolerantie ontstaan maar onmiddellijk verschroeiend als Uw lijf een afstotend plekje wordt op mijn netvlies. En begin nu niet als idioten met allerhande uitgekiende dingetjes op te sturen, IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, walg er gewoon van, de rotzooi die sommigen onder U opsturen en verwachten dat IK, KAPITEIN HAKENKRUIS, ervan achterover val omdat er nog maar eens een rottend geslachtsdeel in voorkomt, de SOUND ATLAS OF VENEREOLOGY is 4 jaar oud juffrouwen! And please don't start to send me all kinds of well worked out little things, I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, just loathe it, the terrible shit that some of You send and think I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, will step back of it because it contains another rotting prick, the SOUND ATLAS OF VENEREOLOGY is 4 years old young ladies! In Belgium anything is better anyway, didn't You know we even have a complete female choir calling themselves CLITORIA?, I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, wonder when they're going to play at the V A G I N A. Sinds de BRT spots vertoont om het suikerverbruik te bevorderen stijgt ook de criminaliteit, want ze weten nu stilaan al dat al die consumptie van suikers leidt tot gedragsstoornissen en criminaliteit, PETER CARLIER had ze nochtans gewaarschuwd "van suiker krijgt men geestelijke ziekten". And You, Anglo-Saxons, did you think I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, was going to translate every tiny bit of this little story? Don't You ever think I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, care just one little bit about You all, I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, can't even think about so much little victims there overseas, my FascistSexMurderThought would be crowded night & day. What did You expect here anyway, something You like? You like this, admit it, You're all perverts, everybody is a pervert, no need to hide it, you've got a mind, use it, pervert it, enjoy it, live! En de Nederlandstaligen, lezen jullie ook niet liever opwindende, goed klinkende verhaaltjes in het Engels? De taal waarin FUCK zo mooi klinkt dat de poversten onder jullie het amper van de tong kunnen houden. Het interesseert mij geen zier om jullie net precies exactly hetzelfde mee te delen als de idioten aan de andere kant van de zee. Waarom zijn trouwens alle landen geen eilanden. Antwerpen zou dan tenminste gespaard blijven van de jolige, boerende, lallende, roze, blinkende, dikke Hollanders die hier elke zaterdagavond interessant komen doen door luid te brullen, nooit te verstaan wat er hun gezegd wordt, alle mogelijke soorten relikwieën uit muren en straten te sleuren, en bovenal in hun grote melkkoppen nog denken dat ze het tofste volk van Europa zijn. Tussen Nederland en België zou een oceaan moeten liggen in plaats van een snelweg. Still trying to find a little bit in English to read, You silly kids? Laat ze nog maar wat voortzoeken, dan houden ze zich tenminste niet bezig met ongelukken te doen, zoals het toesturen van playlists hun domme University-Radio's waar EMILOU HARRIS een plaats boven EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN staat, als ze nu al eens op dezelfde plaats zouden staan, en NEUBAUTEN de moker op het ribbenorgel van HARRIS zou laten neerkomen, de lyrics van EMILOU zouden dan meteen recht uit het hart komen, en EINSTURZENDE zouden niet langer met zware metalen platen hoeven rond te zeulen, zolang de benen van HARRIS gespaard worden natuurlijk. Allright, I, CAPTAIN HOOK'N'CROSS, was discussing the natural taste of Your playlists of all Your Highschool FM-radio's, but before we start, don't worry, we once were on an Amsterdam radio of which the studio was the size of a toilet, and where you had to leave the door open in order not to get gassed by the breath of all the people who enjoyed making a program during the hours before You, in our case we were 4 in the toilet and the radio was in the air for maybe 10 hours already that day. But anyway, why do you put KATE BUSH on the same chart as DESTRUCT COMPILATION? Did you ever think of putting them together and have BUSH DESTRUCTED on the air? No because all the good stuff has to come from Europe of course, and here we are back with the Master again, to which You have been obeying for let's see 6768 characters. Be grateful. En U Nederlandstaligen, bent U bevredigd na 6849 tekens? Neen?, ga dan terug naar start. DDV was born in 1959.
Various Artists - In Vitro II (C-90 cassette) A-01 - Vitro 1 A-02 - Experiment Incest A-03 - Vitro 2 A-04 - Lakoste A-05 - Vitro 3 A-06 - Vidna Obmana B-01 - Vitro 4 B-02 - Hypnobeat B-03 - Vitro 5 B-04 - Coup de Grace B-05 - Vitro 6 The second In Vitro exhibition was held from 2 July 1986 till 30 August 1986. Just as in the first version (see Club Moral Stocklist 046) there was a 2-month exhibition of independent products, cassettes, magazines, books, records, multiples, etc. For this occasion we also had 8 huge photo's by Hugo Roelandt on show, which coincided with the Antwerp Photography Summer that was organised at various art galleries and institutions at the time. The exhibition .S.T.TI K., actually more conceived as an installation, shows us photo's, but photo's as object-minded, actual, sober investigating, rational images of reality. Intelligence has taken the place of inspiration, knowledge has taken the place of the mysterious, scarcely to be situated, notion talent. That's where the format comes from: by the use of a supernatural size the loyalty to nature is abjured. The image: the human figure, situated in a contemporary sphere (commercials), constructed with contemporary means (photography) and placed in a contemporary form (enormous poster). The thundering, not neglectable presentation of the nudes may be a first touchstone to which each of you can measure his own dynamics. (Mark A. Verreckt, 1976, in "Theory/Information/Practise") In Vitro - The Opening Night Wednesday july 2nd, 1986; a memorable day for all involved with independent whatever it be, records, tapes, magazines, books, videos, films,... That day opened the second and final In Vitro. A first edition had been held in summer 1984, this was a replay, being far more complete with the latest available products, and set up in a logical way, with early independent U.S. newspapers and art-magazines. For 2 months again, every infant and demented could loose control in this astonishing amount of strange information. Some 60 people packed the space on this wednesday-night, some travelled far to witness this event, some missed the boat... The opening-night was supplemented with films from Hugo Roelandt, who also furnished the twice-life-size nudes of 4 men & women. The photos -by the way- have been made in 1976 and have never been exhibited in the meantime. A truly memorable event that day from 8 till late, grind your teeth because you missed it. In Vitro - The In Vivo concerts As in the 1984 version, also this In Vitro was completed with a series of concerts, this time we decided to do them all on the same day, allowing you all to come over for just one day, whereas the previous edition had all the concerts on different days. And again 6 bands were contacted, in fact much more were, but some enquiries stranded for different reasons. We were somewhat proud to present Experiment Incest, a new Belgian band going through their brother/sister repertoire with banging metal and hurling vocals, Lakoste, or an automatic tennis-ball-release-machine that howls Burroughs-texts and discipline amongst sweat-shirted audiences, Vidna Obmana, a snobbish Fata Morgana, Hypnobeat, the sound of 100 hypnotic rhythms and a neurotic operator, Blood ov Christ, who couldn't leave Sweden for some mysterious crimes committed in his darker period (and thus did not play), and finally as guest of honour, Coup De Grace mystic child-torturer, parent-murderer and social threat. The tape is recorded by binaural recording equipment so that you will be able to act as if you were there when using headphones and a blindfold whilst hearing it.

It was re-released by Club Moral after the disbandment of Etat Brut. The first concerts of Etat Brut also had Super8 films, they were official products, but have never been released. Quite a lot of the shooting of these was done on the infamous viaduct of Koekelberg, a long narrow overpass that carried the Etat Brut members from their home to their job every day. Infamous because of it's traffic jams, dangerous driving and ugliness into the centre of Brussels. It was built in 1958 as a temporary solution, but remained in action until the 1980's, injecting about 30.000 cars a day into the city. The viaduct is now replaced by a tunnel. In the late 1990's the Belgian Government donated the viaduct to Thailand, where it is now known as the "Belgian Bridge" on Rama IV Road in Bangkok. With the release of EB001 came also Etat Brut's "Message aux Larves": 1) Qu'attendre de la paix? Un sommeil confortable pour vos tristes carcasses? 2) Face à la niaiserie, affecter l'écœurement. 3) Face à vos consciences, dresser nos tortures. 4) Face au bonheur l'énifiant, opposer le gout du sang, du métal et de la guerre. 5) Face a face!
Etat Brut - Acier (C-60 cassette) A-01 - LD A-02 - Arbeit A-03 - Acier Victorieux A-04 - Fevrier 83 A-05 - Toxic Habit* B-01 - Musique pour Chambre a Gaz B-02 - Synapse B-03 - Totalitarism* Acier (aka Steel) is the last release by the Belgian Noise pioneer band Etat Brut (tracks marked * are by 2Tracks aka Jerry WX). It was released by Etat Brut as "Acier" and by AEON in the U.S. as "Steel". Acier is the brutal testament of this uncompromising duo of two Brussels based science teachers heavily influenced by the writings of J.G. Ballard. The present whereabouts of Etat Brut are unknown. 2Tracks/Jerry WX (Jean-Pierre Poirier) died in 2000.
