BREAKING NEWS: Good Stuff: I bought an 'old stock' cassette tape deck a while back in order to archive / preserve my boxes and boxes of cassette tapes from the olden days. Today, cassette # 338 yielded a long-forgotten treasure / revelation: on the B-side of a cassette-tape, hand-labelled in my own handwriting, "IGGYPOP" i shockingly discovered the backing tape of the February 29, 1984 first-ever-performance under the name of KMFDM. I kid you not !!! The morning of the opening of that show of german artist conglomerate named ERSTE HILFE, (english: FIRST AID, in french PREMIER SECOURS) at the Grand Palais in Paris, France on Feb 29, 1984, i went to a music / pawn store on what i think was Rue St. Denis, there i recorded a broken ARP 2600 by means of 2 Shure 57 Mics onto a Walkman !? WTF ... and used same cassette tape as a base for the performance of the opening of the exhibit under the slogan of something akin to " Young Underground Artists Of A Unified Europe" or something like it... Unfortunately this tape didn't have the entire performance of vacuum cleaners and coal miners banging on hard steel in addition to the recordings on it, but nonetheless, it is a somewhat priceless window into the very early days of when KMFDM began. All that said, i ain't sure about what to do with it now... Any suggestions ? K.

hmm, interesting lil' story: recently i received a request to include an older KMFDM track on a soundtrack album accompanying a movie release. The movie: INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT: The story of Wax Trax! Records The track: VOGUE (the previously unreleased Ur-version of it, initially recorded in 1991 for the album that never was released: APART) This was the first time of several times that we'd decided to call it quits due to personal differences. Flipping a coin it turned out that i recorded the A-side for it, Nick the B-side. As a whole, it was rejected by Wax Trax! because the way it turned out was not what they'd hoped for. After a bit of hulla-balloothe and further funding, the album was thoroughly overhauled, i came up with a bunch of new material and finally, finally it was released as MONEY in 1992. Nick's material was eventually released as CHEESY, on TVT Records. Anyways: request granted ! Freshly mastered versions (both for vinyl and CD) are on their way into production
