Crawling With Tarts - Bled Es Siba (Part One)

Michael Gendreau and Suzanne Dycus-Gendreau have been making music as Crawling With Tarts since sometime in the mid-80's. They were a big part of the "Cassette Culture" scene, and their tapes from that era really stand out. Later on in the 90's they turned into more of a Mills College academic style of music, putting out CD's of cutup opera 78's and double singles of motor sounds. Not really that exciting compared to this stuff.

I am giving you my favorite tape here, less song oriented than some of the others that I will post later. This is the first tape in a double set, unfortunately I do not have the second one. Long, utterly alien tracks that sound like being inside of some creepy hive of insects. Truly unique and highly recommended.

Side 1

Side 2

Thank you much for these; I'd only heard the later, refined gallery-bid Tarts stuff, and I really didn't know what the fuss was about. Astounding...very nice stuff. Many thanks!

Tape A / Side B is the only part that has disappeared from Mediafire :(

Any chance for a re-up of that at this point?

I don't find it re-posted elsewhere...

THANKS either way...
