23-01-95 (the day of Army office no? AAAArgh!)

[sorry about the handwriting… I write for a long time! hope you can understand anyway!]

hello keren.

Thank a lot for the so long letters! + the tape. it’s really cool. I’ve enjoyed it even if I’ve listened it to it once because of all the recordings I had to do (including your tape)… so I just had No time for listening to it more… but it seems great. really.

I’ve been lucky to get this tape ‘cos the envelope was all scratched & the box damaged luckily the tape wasn’t broken. Just try to protect it more, post office sucks this way. My brother received 2 weeks ago 2 7″ well protected in a box & they were completely Broken!

Okay – I gave your letter to my brother, even though I’d rather not to for various reasons – just don’t pay attention. Anyway – Enclosed should be a few issues of his latest Newsletter, perhaps he’ll write later if he can. this year he has much more work & right now (these weeks he has exams)well you will understand by reading the Newsletter anyway!

So tons of events happened to you hey?

Did you finally start your ‘zine?

so did you buy all those stuff you wanted with your money??

Lately I had tons of New stuff.

CD’s, 10″, 7″, LP’s which I like alot. Old & new things. I get some with my distro which is cool cause I can se a bit of money!!

I’ve put some of the tape I’m sending to you (like: congress, Boot down the door…) about Spawn I’ve put you the 7″ (New) too as you’ve asked for it – I just get it in distro, I’m sorry last song is cut… it’s from my tape I didn’t have enough place for it & didn’t keep any for me (I cannot afford to keep copy of everything I get!)

I should get soon: Manliftingbanner & Brotherhood CD’s!!! in distro sure, I’ll keep one for me so if you want me to record it on tape or if you want original cd’s, we could work out something for sure!

Also on your tape is: Colt turkey, perhaps you already know it… if Not sure you’ll like it. it’s what Manliftingbanner has done (well one of the things before MLB (it’s against X-mas & the murder of turkey – sleeve is great! they’ve made it for gun)

oh, well happy birthday! I’ve forgotten. Okay, let’s say the tape is about it & also some other things I’ll try to enclosed.

it seems like you didn’t really enjoyed that time that much?

so hope your exams went well…

Did you went to the army office? I’ve heard about this event that happened 1-2 days ago with this ‘human bomb’ suicide & murders.

if I am right it happened on young people… too bad. I really can’t understand all this, okay it’s not the same thing in my country but religion sucks too. I don’t like fanaticism (I guess you don’t like either!)

The more things like this happen the more I hate Religious stuff for all its bullshit & Murders, I wonder how much death were & are still caused by religion

Murder, war… in name of God! tsss.

About your zine… well who know maybe sometime I could contribute (if I feel like it & just have time… I guess you know how it is!) if you could tell me a bit more like things you’ll like to get (subjects… etc) so I could see if I can help.

Also about your newsletter/ compilation tapes, if you want sure I could help you distributing some around here in my catalogue.

For Newsletter if they’re free send a few issues when it’s out & I’ll pass them on. For tapes (comp or whatever) well I don’t have much money left but you could send 2-3 (or more in the future if it works) & tell me your price & I’ll pay you if I sell them or then I’ll just return them.

So let me know if you’re interested!

About Zips & Chains… well we don’t distribute it, maybe we had a few issues but it’s gone… Anyway. I keep your $3 & I’m gonna find you an issue of it from a guy I know & send it to you as soon as I’ll get it.

Well, here we had 2 HC shows (it’s coming a bit more now) first one were with 3 French Bands

The 1st was mostly noisy which was bad, 2nd was a mix of Rock/ Ska/ HC melodic, it was cool but As there was too much [?] it was a but strange. The Third one was really great. Powerful HC Melodic really nice, they played two [?] set after the people were shouting after them. the atmosphere was cool except a lot of smoke inside (I hate this)

2nd show was with (initialy) NRA (from holland) & Apartment 36 (ex. poison idea), we’re already seen NRA in October or so & really wanted to see APT 36. Unfortunately for some problem they had to go back to USA…

instead there was another band from holland, they played first, it wasn’t really good, basic HC melodic. Only their son from GB and Beastie boys were cool. NRA were great again. faster than before & really nice kids. we’ve talk with them again after & they told us tons of stories (they knew Manliftingbanner, Seein’ Red… they’re friends!) & also told us about tour with NOFX & trouble they did get with them (they hate majors & on more than 20000FF they only get 1000 FF!!) & threw a brick on NOFX van, said fuck to Epitaph who wanted to sign with them… & more. it was cool!

Okay – about the distro now, well perhaps I could help you first I could distro some of your stuff if you want to, & I could also get you European stuff & US stuff if you’re interested (7″, LP’s, zines…)

7″s would be around $2 to $2.50, I don’t have uge stocks but I have friends who can get cheap stuff for me but it depends alot from time to time so I can’t really tell you what stuff now!

>EMO stuff (Driftwood, Bob tilton, Manumission…) $2 mostly

> SXE stuff (Blindfold, shortsight, Colt turkey(?), Manliftingbanner(?)…) $2-2.50

>Punk stuff (oi polloi stuff, french/ European stuff > Boot Down the Door, Disaffect, hiatus) > $2.50-2

it depends!!

[…. the list goes on – K]

Okay p I’m gonna quit –

oh yeah, about my plans: well I’m afraid I won’t be able to go to US this summer ‘cos I won’t have enough money… Next year sure!!

Instead I’ll try to find a job to earn money this summer + in August > go to the New SXE festival in Belgium! if you ever want to come to france, you won’t have to worry about a place to stay – Also I could show you around-

Let’s see, if you’re interested by france we could then organize something with the Belgian fest too! (should be again bands like: Blindfold, spawn, Feeding the fire + US/ European bands + the Jedi (ex. N.O. Fire – Shortsight & more)…

Well we’ll see.

Take care, write soon.

pls return stamps.

Pierre.
