Yesterday I got a mysterious Private Message from Lucas V. on the eastcoast forum. It was a very polite dude who had done an awesome record score. He asked me if I could do something with the pictures he made of the items. I said yes, because it fits in the concept of my blog. Namely pictures of collectible rare stuff and coöperating with others.
Lucas also explicitly said that all credits should go to Stefaan Buyse, because he kept safe this tape and record. Buyse was the drummer of Spineless.
While we are speaking of the bandmembers; two bandmembers of Spineless (at the time of the ‘Painfields’ release) went on to form and play in the already legendary band AMEN RA. It were Colin (Collio) and Kristof Mondy. Altough Mondy isn’t in Amen Ra anymore. And Mondy also did the Yoda Fanzine. The guitarplayer Pedro (Fifi) played and plays in some other important H8000 bands; CONGRESS, KINGPIN and TRENCHFOOT. It was also he who wrote all the songs for SPINELESS.
So we’ll start of with this tape. I noticed the ‘CMD rec.’ on it, this logo is also on the Spineless ‘Painfields’ 7″. But don’t ask me what this stands for. I only hope H8000 CENTRAL will give an answer on this (so here’s my request).
Then we have the SPINELESS full length called ‘A Talk Between Me And The Stars’. It is the most limited color, handstamped out of 35. Probably comparable to nowadays record release or friends press, I really don’t know. Note that I’ve seen this record on ebay on clear also, it was from a Japanese seller. Those Japs really appreciate the H8000 and are willing to give good money for H8000 stuff.
I have spoken to the author of H8000 CENTRAL and he is planning on making a more in depth post about this. So, this is only a sneakpeak. And we will all together stay tuned for the H8000 Central update on this. And hope it will give us some answers. It will be there soon.
To make the view upon the production of Spineless more complete, I will give the picture of my ‘Painfields’ seveninches. Notice again the CMD logo on it.
You can still hear music from Spineless on myspace. So check this out immediately here.
