Boomkat Product Review:
Amsterdam’s Knekelhuis draw from a seemingly endless well of Lowlands tape music for ‘Dutch Cassette Rarities 1981-1987 - Volume 2’, spanning all manner of rhythm-driven and wonky-wired post-punk, post-industrial expression
They’ve really gone in on this one, pulling out loads of names and songs from well off the beaten path, with many making their first official appearance on vinyl and digital. The quality is dead high throughout, but here are some big standouts: namely The Hi-Tones’ eerie mix of steely drum machine and microtonal Turkish synth vamps in ‘Ibrahim’; the slithering electronic slurry of ‘Scum Grief’ by Toornend; and the clenched, ‘phet-fuelled EBM shockout of ‘Warschau Pact’ by Storung.
