Cause And Effect
Sex On Sunday S.T. 1 1983
Brussels, Belgium

Just try to pronounce the name of this delightful delicious 1983 cassette release from Belgium's Sex On Sunday label. OSLWMMGIB? means "Our Secret Life: What Makes Men Good In Bed?" Let's Have Healthy Children open the tape with 7 rituals. They share Side One with Masami Akita (a.k.a. Merzbow) who performs "Fun In Thibet". Also on this K7 are Delmas Rosenquist & AJ Anes (Belgium) and Mnee Chorischnooto. Surely some of the strangest, most mysterious music you'll hear. Actually lots of "fun". Guaranteed and recommended.

OSLWMMGIB? was listed in the January 1985 Cause And Effect Cassette Distribution catalog. It is presented here strictly for archival, educational, historical, and non-commercial purposes. All rights belong to the artists.

These recordings are straight transcriptions from an original copy of the cassette as it was published by the Sex On Sunday label in 1983. No attempt has been made to enhance or "improve" the sound quality.

Pictured above is a cover of an original copy of OSLWMMGIB?.

Audio files are transcriptions of the entire sides of the cassette, not divided into tracks. This was done for two reasons:
1) to give the listener an opportunity to hear the sides of the tape as continuous listening experiences just as someone might have heard them if they bought the tape from Cause And Effect in 1985
2) to highlight and emphasize the non-profit nature of this archival presentation

The main purposes here are to preserve artifacts and documents of Cassette Culture Era history, and to honor the artists and labels who produced them.

This is the second entry of a project that I have recently commenced to thoroughly document the cassettes that were distributed and produced by Cause And Effect. I expect this project to take several years to complete.
