Forming Skin and Speech

A new website for an old label, a long living idea that takes form soon. Or should I say more form?

SKIN AND SPEECH was originally founded by Alex Buess. has released in casette form in the 1980ies and is now carried on by Alex BuessManuel Liebeskind and Eugene Robinson in a modernized form. With big plans and small budgets, Skin and Speech is bound to release stuff that has well been worth being heard at the time as much as it is now and in the forseeable future.

Releases may take digital forms or traditional forms that are still being used.
