Lucas, the person I got the photo’s from, 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 band members; two band members 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 any more. And Mondy also did the Yoda Fanzine. The guitar player 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.
Then we have the Spineless full length called ‘A Talk Between Me And The Stars’. It is the most limited colour, hand stamped 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.
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 sneak peak. And we will all together stay tuned for the H8000 Central update on this. And hope it will give us some answers.
To make the view upon the production of Spineless more complete, I will give the picture of my ‘Painfields’ seven inches. Notice again the CMD logo on it.
You can still hear music from Spineless on their myspace.
