BA exists as an audio-magazin since 1984. It took most of its inspiration from Chris Cutler's 'File under Popular' and independent ideals. The good (or not so good) days of socalled Recommended networking are long gone. BA tried to make open-mindedness its only agenda. After 10 years with compilation cassettes, and 10 years with 7” EPs, BA now includes (for subscribers only) CD-Rs or artwork by artists of the true bad alchemystic kind.
