The New Blockaders

A long time ago I was asked by Richard Rupenus of The New Blockaders to do a remix, which was, much later, released on a 5LP set by Vinyl On Demand. Today I received a 2CD which has all the European remixes of The New Blockaders together. Its released by Auf Abwegen. I wondered why exactly this had to be re-issued, but its a fine compilation. The USA artists are on Important Records and the UK artists compiled by At War With False Noise (for completists). I doubt wether it will bring fame to the New Blockaders outside the extended family of noise. Oh, actually I did two remixes. The other one is still in my archive and was supposed to be released by Beta-Lactam Ring on a CD of various of those forgotten tracks (along with some other unreleased Freiband pieces), but that never happened. Anyone interested in releasing any of that, contact me for a full list of unreleased Freiband works.
