De Fabriek - Blecheintopf (Music for Modern Art Exhibitions, Volume II)

Rerelease on vinyl of a cassette from 1982. De Fabriek (‘The Factory’) began in the late 1970s as a do-it-yourself music collective around Richard Van Dellen and Andries Eker in Zwolle, the Netherlands. an album from 1982, originally on a tape. De Fabriek (‘The Factory’) began in the late 1970s as a do-it-yourself music collective around Richard Van Dellen and Andries Eker in Zwolle, the Netherlands. First, they were inspired by Krautrock and the like, later by industrial (noise) music. De Fabriek became a vital and highly productive part of the industrial music DIY cassette label culture of the 1980s and 1990s.

Blecheintopf is one of De Fabriek’s earliest releases. Initially self-published in an edition of 10 in 1982, it immediately reappeared in a larger edition on Nico Selen’s cassette label New Bulwark Records. Nico, who originally lived in the eastern Dutch town Enschede, had joined De Fabriek for this album under the pseudonym Wolff P. Rillings. He brought in the idea of making this album the second instalment of the series ‘Music for Modern Art Exhibitions’ on New Bulwark Records.

De Fabriek on this release was: Andries Eker, Heinz Bönig, Henri Mouwer, and Richard Van Dellen.

This version of the Futura Resistenza LP is red vinyl, black inner sleeve, brown cardboard cover with an A4 booklet mimicking the original tape cover I think….

This album has, I’d argue, aged much better than most DIY industrial music of the 1980s. Its timelessness justifies this re-release. Nevertheless, Blecheintopf reflects the time of its making: in 1979, a nuclear reactor accident happened in Harrisburg, USA (the largest such accident pre-Chernobyl and Fukushima) which gave the most dense and haunting track of this album its name.
