Identification

(1990)

An international compilation cassette (C-60) compiled and produced by Christof Migone.

Cassette cover of sandpaper with title stamped on a purposely inconvenient flap.

Identification was at first intended to feature solely IDs from radios real or imaginary. It quickly became less specific.

Published by see///.saw tapes (now defunct).

Other release on this cassette-only label: Foutre en l’air.

REVIEWS

Brian Fulmer, The Single Eye (Montréal)

This compilation includes almost everything that can be done. Live music, listener calls, DJ patter/interviews /explanations, show ID’s and even a small excerpt from a W.S. Burrough’s press conference. This is a very enjoyable tape and the selections are generally short and to the point. Boredom, therefore, is kept to an absolute minimum. Recommended.

Guy Stuckens, MAM (Belgium)

Curieux mélange que celui présenté sous emballage abrasif: sons musique, extraits d’émissions de radio, audio art, tout se bousculant joyeusement, dans un ensemble particulièrement réussis. Encore une production qui enchantera ceux et celles qui sont en overdose d’écoute des émissions standardisées des radios commerciales!
