UPDATE 2024: 73 yrs old, cleaning up my archives to give it all to a museum. Must be like 600 cassettes with their correspondance. Tough job.

I'm still a very busy person, so no use to contact me asking for files!

Founded the cassette label Calypso Now in 1983 and released more than 200 tape productions until 1988, self-produced or licensed to the label.

Unfortunately for 'my' artists, I started the band Pull My Daisy in '87, playing more and more gigs in Switzerland and Germany, so I couldn't keep on firing out those cassettes, which meant to take a break and concentrate on the band. During that time I also did radio shows for several stations featuring independent productions, crossing over to national radio at the end of the 80's, where I did a 2-, then 3-hour-show every month with the great Suzanne Zahnd (an icon in Switzerland!). Today's ears wouldn't believe it, but we even played my scratched records from the flea markets.

For complicated reasons everything came to a full stop when Grunge and Rave took over. Until I started again...

Discogs helps me to clean up my archives of literally thousands of tapes and records, mostly 80's stuff, free jazz, obscure folk music, hippy classics, noise and found voices. I also try to sell parts of my collection - but can't seem to really let go. Therefore, I mainly sell duplicates at the moment.

Also check out my calypsonow-blog for more informations.

and you can hear me on laut.fm/latriperie, sometimes I play cassettes, sometimes I play just about anything I like.

Sounds simply catastrophic. The most unnerving comes from the host of this radioshow like presentation of mostly local artists. I had to listen to it to archive it, it was a pain. Keep away from this 'rarity'.

I have a tape of this album since the 80's from the tape traders circuit. The story at the time went like this: Moore had to fullfill a contract, owed one more record to Polydor, and obviously he was so pissed he gave them this as the new album. I'm... See full review

Rumour has it that it this was produced on xmas holidays, musicians included Voco Fauxpas, Major Kain, Sylvia Holenstein. Listening to it, I think it's probably true. There's also keyboard and sax present, and a solo guitar. No idea who this could be.

I recently got several 100 CD from the 90's and 00's, the collection of a friend. This is one that really stood out. Great songs, funny hook lines, and he sings like Morrissey, when he was in The Smiths. It works really great. Highly recommended for... See full review

I bought this record in the 70s, 1000's of records have gone through my hands since. but I still come back to this one. It's unique in the work of funk saxophonist Lou Donaldson, being some kind of futuristic with the treated saxophone, some of the... See full review

fantastic album and hard to get. The singing of Yannick Lieber, who plays in a blues trash band Virgin Bitch... they do not care very much about promotion or recordings, but the play live very often in the french part of switzerland. They must be cult.

I was surprised when I heard "Vierd Blues" credited as "Visitation". No idea how this came about.
