The world is a lesser place without your talent and vision. Truly an immense and saddening loss.
A new mix and collage were contributed by Kristian Olsson of Alfarmania, the Ghoulson blog, label Bolvark Tapes and known for his now-defunct project Survival Unit. His new solo LP Att vara där jag var innan jag var jag is available – information at nattmaran.se.
“Five years ago I did a tape called Criminalia with sounds from some of my favourite eurocrime films, sourced directly from vhs and mixed in rough way. Last year I did a second volume, but this collided with a collapsing private life and only a handful of copies are in circulation. While getting things straightened out, here is an exclusive mix I made for Soldiers Disease featuring both new stuff and extractions from vol 2. I lost the track-list but some of the films included are: Il Caso Venere Privata, Gli Uccisori, L’immoralità, Lúcio Flávio – Passenger of Agony, Vertigo pour un tueur, Macrò – Guida uccide il venerdiì, Eyes Behind the Wall, Man on His Knees, The Maniac Responsible, Your Hands on My Body, Knife of Ice, Kriminal, Col cuore in gola, Bandits in Milan, Spell – Sweet Slaughterhouse, Investigation of a citizen above suspicion, Night of Hate, Come cani arrabbiati, Crazy Joe, Nine Guests for a Crime, Wake Up and Kill, Day of Violence, Special Squad Shoots on Sight, In The Highest of Skies, Savage Three and many others.” – Kristian Olsson

Another set of photographs scanned from the collection of my friend Corydon Ronnau. Some of them were quite damaged and a few remain stuck together forever. This is what he had to say about their origin:
“Among the photos were some correspondence from the G.I.’s family after he returned home. He had fallen into addiction and become estranged. Attempts to contact him went nowhere. He seems to have disappeared.”
These photographs were scanned from the collection of my friend Corydon Ronnau. This is what he had to say about their origin:
“These photos were found in a wooden box in a derelict van that had been towed to a salvage yard. They seem to have been taken by a G.I. with ancillary duties, as none of the photos I left behind were taken in the field.”
