This blog is dedicated to the continuing musical adventures of Jan Duivenvoorden (Unit Moebius) and myself (Anthony Blokdijk, Salò Mentale). We both live and work in The Hague (The Netherlands). Consider this blog as a public diary of our collaborations.
Jan and I first met in 1993 through our individual contributions for local pirate radio station Tonka, and jammed for the first time in 1994, supporting avant-rock group Kampec Dolores from Budapest (Hungary).
[Live @ Iets Vrijers]
Collaborations in the years that would follow (including poetry readings by Cor Gout from Trespassers W) were often released on private cassette label Cunker records:
- The Guy Effect (1994)
- Hello Toni Goodbye Ian (1994)
- Poppelepee (with Cor Gout, 1994)
- Obscure Live Sex (1995)
- B.A.M.D.I.R.T. (1996)
In 1995 Unit Moebius made a contribution for the group exhibition "De Dronken Boot", organized by my other brainchild, stichting (foundation) Maldoror. [link]. In 1996 Unit Moebius performed at a festival about 'underground art in the eighties', also organized by Maldoror.
In 1999 Salò Mentale did its last gig for many years ahead, at the wedding of Jan. [JB Marriage]
A few years later I moved to live in former Dutch colony Suriname (South America).
