Mekanik Kommando ‎– Snake Is Queen (LP, 1982) (Wereld Rekord ‎– 1A 068-26891) (WAV)

Inspired by DIY, kraftwerk, magma and two tape recorders the band began as a recording project in 1979. The obscure results appeared on cassettes in small quantities. A strange sound, strange music. Eventually this led to a number of lp's, cassettes and countless gigs . They played the light from their eyes.
The inevitable happened and after a few years they disappeared into the void.

  1. Yes, great stuff, but what you write is not true. Mekanik Kommando didn't disappear into any void and also never released very obscure cassettes. They did 2 records for Torso Records, and 2 for EMI; hardly obscure stuff. They changed their musical style and decided that a new name was necessary and became the Use of Ashes. This is, in all fairness, quite common knowledge. In February next year there will be a reunion concert. peter van vliet, the singer, has produced my band Beequeen in our final days and is a brilliant producer and musician.

  2. Text is from the bandcamp side.

  3. Hi Frans,
    yes indeed..the story continues.
    This are not my own words..copy this from the Bandcamp-side of the band. So it is her own words or from the tonefloat label who make the re-releases.
    I´m not a specialist for the band, but i like the sound verry much.
    Maybe the wikipedia story in dutch or german was a better idea.
    Thx a lot for your informations (also about Peter producing your wonderful band).

    Best Regards

  4. I see, well, never believe what a band says about themselves. the fact they have a bandcamp means there is no void, I think.

  5. great band. i think the festival is cancelled. sadly. i hope they will play somewhere else

    1. The scheduled show at the Paradox in Tilburg this Saturday was cancelled unfortunately, but new dates have just been announced:

  6. savecueandlog, thanks for this vinyl rip!
