The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time.

Les Maitres - Les Maitres (Cassette Rip) (1983 - 320kbps)

Les Maitres is a French post-punk coldwave band that was active in the early 80s. They have only one release, their self-titled cassette from 1983. A handful of their songs also appeared on numerous compilations as recently as 2006.

Coldwave is a French & Belgian post-punk musick. Early French punk groups like Stinky Toys & Métal Urbain were forerunners to the scene. As the scene grew, it took increasing influence from post-punk, disco, & industrial music. I believe coldwave to contain elements of the icy, luminous, electro art rock of artists like Ultravox, Gary Numan, Bill Nelson, Dalek I, Tuxedomoon, Nash the Slash, & others from the late 70s/early 80s.

Comes with insert with the text of “Justine Ou Les Malheurs De La Vertu” by De Sade. Songs “Théatre”, “I Don't Care”, & “Descente Aux Enfers” are demo tracks. “Le Curé", “Souvenir", “L’Entendez-Vous? (2)", & “Le Diable" were recorded live at Art Beton 12 Feb. 83. “L’Entendez-Vous" (a different version than [2]) was recorded live at Pali Kao 21May 83.
