for the releases, one warning comes through our mailing list !


new release ready.
mission terminated.


"Il y a de l'espoir, mais pas pour nous"
Franz Kafka

looks like we'll round off the adventure by the end of 2016 !
testh pressinghz for our latest, last, ultimate LP, Frogoroth, are on the wayyyyy
always an horrible moment, where the worst can meet the best, according to chance, goodwill of skilled or unskilled technicians, stars alignments, and such

it's been a fun ride,


Hooked off fb once again, feels great again :)
a few weeks ago we did the mastering for the ultimate ini.itu LP, with Frederic Alstadt from Angstrom Mastering
he did a great job, taking out the best out of the 4 tracks fro the FROGOROTH LP,
which were done by Yannick Dauby, Dave Phillips, Slavek Kwi & Sylvain van iniitu

Last week was the cut, also excellent job !
now we are finishing the artwork.
the LP should be ready early 2017 probably.
As i'm utterly pissed with making boxes and packing and posting and receiving complains about the costs and the posts,
maybe this LP will be available only on "punk post" ways : you come to pick it up personnaly or you manage to get someone bring it to you.

now concentrating on E42.A8 activities.
concerts in Mannheim and Frankfurt at the end of february !

Yesterday was the release day of an LP by Jesus is my son !
excellent record, quite different from anything we've released until now
maybe the closest thing qua tempo migh be Kraig Grady's work

after this, the last project will be Frogoroth's LP
Still one track to finish, then the "usual" job

harassed the last few weeks by too little time to spend on answering ppl, listening to demos, replying mails,
packing box, re-packing boxes, getting notifications of bent corners, etc etc etc
poor sales, few reviews, you know the lament
i think i've quite had it
time to move on


Here he is. the newest LP by Jesus is my son !
still have to check with HIM when will be the official release date, but you are warned : the record exists.

what about the future ?

next step will be Frogoroth.
and then the hibernation, the long winter.


Masayuki Imanishi LP out now !!!
dear friends, if you want ini.itu to go on, it's time to buy

8.1.2016 ( after 1:0:0 )


Wieman LP available now !
their concert in Atelier Claus was great !
please beware that we'll be on holidays soon, so order fast if you need that LP to animate new year's eve


Okay, the Wieman LP is almost ready
maybe it will be OK for their performance in Bruxelles in a few days, 14th November
Let's see !

Masayuki Imanishi's LP is also sent to the factory

And before the end of the year we'll be ready with audio and artwork for Jesus is my son :)

We've been quiet for a long time but the end of 2015 is heavy

For 2016 we already have something hyper special and cool in the pipeline,
and after that : we'll see.
it would be good if more people bought our records, but that's what everyone says, right ?
nonetheless, please tell your friends about us, like our page, etc. you know the drill
we realized that in our own town/land still many people have never heard about us.
small is beautiful ? well...



I can barely believe that this page was not updated during almost one year !
well, one reason for that might be lack of ThyroÏd hormones, now THAT'S FIXED,
thank God for 20th century medicine about that - feels like getting out of a thick fog.

now the real news : ONE LP is on the way to be mastered
And a SECOND LP is also almost there
Artwork is ready for BOTH !

and then, a THIRD one for which the demo has been approved,
but we still need to find the rigth artwork.

So : expect a lot of ini.itu for the end of the year,

besides that, we are investing much time on E42.A8

GREAT ! we got today Yannick Dauby's LP test pressings...
and they sound amazing ! Darmstadt is now in the Jungle
really recommended release for everyone into early electronics and field recordings with a twist

besides that good news, we've been pretty sick the last 2 weeks and not recovered completely yet
so things may cook a bit slowly during april... stay tuned

A comment about Anselm Kiefer's critique of Hegel and its pretension to
world expansion of an euro-centric model made great impression on us -
gotta retink some ideas of ini.itu on the light of this.

OK, warming up for the release of Yannick Dauby's LP...
still busy finding the proper way to cut the beast, but it's probably coming quite soon !

in the meantime, here is an in-depth interview of Steve Roden, where he mentions the latest LP, the one he made for us :)
we still have a few copies of the thing, and having played the thing repeatedly last week i can tell you it's part of his key releases


artwork almost finished for Yannick Dauby's LP...
will come with 3 postcards, featuring images of batracians shot by Yannick Dauby himself
( the images were shot, not the batracians )
the sound was mastered by Taylor Deupree !

we recently sent a new year's best wishes, but sadly something went wrong and the image doesnt display,
so here it is :


today's date was well special !
we are back from Indonesia :)
had a great time in Bandung, meeting and playing with Husnaan again ( a name to remember ) and discovering Rumah Buku !
finally found some Lokananta records, including some very rare 10" with short samples, as well as a 78 rpm.
beautiful things to hold but almost unpossible to acquire ;)

this whole trip made us very enthousiast again, and we are now planning 4 new releases for next year.
keywords : 1. frogs 2. scales 3. indian epic 4. tapes
stay tunes to discover to which releases these keywords might refer...


today's date was a palindrome !
we are going to Indonesia very soon :)
recording in Makassar and Bandung and hopefully playing with friends in the latter :)
we'll be there around 5-9 desember, YES !
if you are in the 'hood, get in touch by email or fb if you want to meet the real people of ini.itu

also , there's a new release in the pipeline as well, expect it around january...
keyword : frogs !


getting better, but not completely yet,
so sorry for delays in post, delayed releases and delayed everything,
but my health has priority on your listening needs !

First of all, a new place to get our records, in Lille, France, at Besides Records !
very nice team, cool place to find stuff like we did last week :
Death Grips LP, To Rococo Rot LP, Terje Rypdal-De Johnette-Miroslav Vitous LP on ECM, Lord Kirshna von Goloka LP, Edgar Varèse LP
they also have a nice Sun Ra selection !

our demo pile is finally digested, we are now setting on careful selection since we have a planning for 2012 and most of 2013 !

so, what are we busy with right now ?
2 releases : one by Mutamassik, the other one by Steve Roden.
stay tuned, and like i said before, subscribe to our mailing list if you want to know on time :)


So, what's the stimmung at ini.itu headquarters these days ?
first of all, we've received a lot of demos, so many that we are actually drowned in them, and cant properly answer the nice people who sent them in the right time.
to settle this up, i will devote one afternoon to deep listening
and extreme claustration, in critical writing mode.
secondly we will most probably revise our demo-policy
in an even meaner way
( see our FAQs to check how mean and old-fashionned it already is - well, i t's gonna get worse ).

Then, did i mention that Amelia Cuni & Werner Durand's "Already awake in the night" was featured not only in Sietse van Erve's top for 2011, but also in Wonderful Wooden Reasons' ?
check it out for yourself here :

Right now we are busy with the 3 releases of 2012, all of them in preparation and very exciting ! 2012 will bring us to new places :) That's the good start of 2012

The bad thing is that our project for an evening or two in Cinema Nova are not going on... So, if someone wants to organize a mini-festival for us, please get in touch !

i might finish some kind of best of 2011 myself before the end of 2012. Still have to listen to Frans' Ezdanitoff album though.

Many reviews appeared in the meantime about various releases :
Check the newest Freiband ones here,
the newest Amelia Cuni / Werner Durand here,
well, check ti all !


We now have a record label page on fb.
Updated regularly with about the same kind of things as here.
Might be easier to follow for some :


"Stainless Steel ", by Freiband, was reviewed by James Wyness on his excellent Fouter & Swick blog !
Also, there is a serie of reviews being written about all our releases on the french Liability Webzine !
Check their website or our Blindhaed reviews page for the first episode

Did i tell you that another Blindhaed release, the one on Mystery Sea, "Laguna Sunrise", had been reviewed by the intrepid Massimo Ricci ?
Check it out here !!!

We are opening a 'contest' section very soon, with every 2 months something to win...

We found out that some of our records are landing into 'tops' :
notably 'already awake in the night' for Sietse 'Moving Furniture/Orphax' van Erve's and also 'stainless steel' some metal fans : thanks for your appreciation !


The winner of the contest is Joaquim Coqueraumont ! he sent us a nice rusty metal plate from Le Bois du Cazier, in Belgium
we think we'll open soon a contest section !

many copies of Stainles Steel are on their way to the mailorders or to the reviewers :)

We have set up a new mailing-list system : subscribe to be kept updated !!!

the next challenges : 2 LPs in the autumn, and hopefully a concert with live gamelan !


Because the release of our latest LP on ini.itu by Freiband ( Frans de Waard ) puts us in a good mood, we decided to launch a little contest. 

The rules are simple : 
1. check our website ( ) and find out our email adress there
2. send us a picture of a rusty metal surface that you shot yourself
3. share this on your profile

The best photographer will receive an LP :)

limit 30th june


On 21st of June, we'll release our new LP, "Stainless Steel", by Freiband, aka Frans de Waard.
Probably our most radical release until now ! check out the press release for super information
There is a companion 3" on Moll, which is Frans' label, for the completists !


New reviews, for the Amelia Cuni / Werner Durand LP, once again thanks to the excellent James Wyness on his blog Fouter & Swick.

Our next release is slowly getting ready for release. After a nice cut session the lacquers were sent to the press.
2 locked grooves announced on this one :)
And surprise ! it will get a companion release on another label.... suspense, suspense...


Many new reviews, for the d'incise LP and for the Dave Phillips/Cornelia Hesse-Honegger LP !

Many new distributors ! especially in the U.S.A.
Copies on their way to Japan too, more about it soon.

A new release is planned, full steam ahead.
Stay tuned for something hard and sharp.

We are more and more busy on fb. Add us to your friends there for daily temperature at ini.itu HQ :)



The first review for our release by Werner Durand / Amelia Cuni is here !
The album is very appreciated at SoundOhm, who made it "Highly Recommended" album of the month

We are slowly but surely getting ready for the new releases of 2011.
Expect some Sharp Minimal Electronics next ;)

In the U.S., Tedium House has copies of our Dave Phillips release !


So, our release by Werner Durand / Amelia Cuni is finally out ! this little gem was not easy to press, hence the delay :)
indeed the record intricate layering of sine wase, dhrupad singing and sarode is really full of phase shifts and low frequencies.
but alleluiah, here it is now ! copies are on their way to the regular places...

we will also send promo copies next week.
this time we will be more strict : we only send to people who reviewed the last package, and preferably on EU ground.
we indeed have to spare for our next releases :) YEAH !

Blyndhaeth has a track on Consounling Sound's forthcoming compilation, due for releaese on 25th march.
a lot of nice artists on the CD as well... N, Multer, Mirko Uhlig, Tzesne. Should be great.

d'incise was played on Radio3 Italy a few days ago !
Thanks to Nicola Catalano for his support :)

I dont know if i mentionned this already, but we are now in FaceBook.
get in touch with us there for some daily news, playlists, and silly stuff.


What more can you expect on Valentine's day than a review of "Mutations" on Still Single ?
isnt that lovely...


Review for "Mutations" in The Wire, added here !


New reviews for d'incise and Dave Phillips / Cornelia Hesse-Honegger !
from Sergei ( Maeror3 blog ) and Textura ! Check them out in d'incise reviews and in Dave Phillips / Cornelia Hesse-Honegger reviews !
also there is a review in The Wire from february, but i havent received it yet...

starting this month, a new project for 2011. It's not vinyl, it's paper.
i wont say more, surprise at the end of the year.
(knock on wood)


All our releases are now available from Toolbox Records, in France
that's a good place to dig if you like hard hitting electronic tunes !

There will be a compilation featuring Blyndhaed soon, and ini.itu will soon host their webpage, since myspace has become so shitty.
there is a project of an electric kecapi record.
and a remix for d'incise in the making.

on 23rd january, be sure to be at Ateliers Claus, for the dutch brotherhood.



Dave Phillips / Cornelia Hesse-Honegger "mutations" available in the US from RRRecords ! Thanks to Ron Lessard !

Closer to home, some of our releases are now available as well from Instant Jazz, a very nice jazz oriented mailorder -
ideal for those who dig Brötzmann as well, like we do


"Des années passèrent. Les unes après les autres
quand les 31 décembre avaient la mémoire des incidents,
les unes dans les autres quand, pour quelque raison,
les horloges s'arrêtaient de battre les secondes. Certaines
passaient bien lentement, plus âcres qu'un nuage de
gaz toxique; d'autres, en revanche, filaient fulgurantes,
insaisissables, comme ces grands poissons qui naviguent,
phosphorescents, dans le ciel, quand les nuits sont très
noires." [ Jacques Sternberg, "l'employé" ]

All the best for 2011 !

well, a few good news :

"Rivages sur l'antipode", by d'incise, was chosen by SoundOhm as pick of the week, with mention "Revelation" ! Check it out on their website

One of our older releases, "Let's make a solar system", by Twinkle³ made it into the top10 of Nicola Catalano, of Radio 3 Italia and Blow Up magazine :)
check his show on 29th december, he will play his best-of
or if you live in Italy, check the latest edition of Blow Up !

Good distribution news :
some of our releases will be on U.S. ground, at RRRecords ( Dave Phillips ) and at Swill Radio ( Dave Phillips & d'incise )
if you want one, you have to RUSH, because we were not sending, like a truckload, but rather a few.
if you are american and good at persuasion, please work on someone there to distribute our full catalog...
(you'll get a poster, promise)

now, some news of our friends blindhæð :
they will play as a support of Martiensgohome for the release party of their newest release, a 10", "MGH PLAYS ULVER"
as pth said : "secret location on the 8th of January 2011"
for that occasion, a solo incarnation of blindhæð will rework "Laguna Sunrise", maybe with kecapi-drones on top.
to know when, where, you need to make contact.

we have since short a MixCloud account.
i think that for the new year we'll give a mix of all our releases, as a gift.
We are also on facebook, where some small news and daily insignificances might be shared.

now, after all this good stuff, the not so good news :
we have more delay on the Amelia Cuni / Werner Durand release,
simply because the pressing has proved to be extremely difficult to realize,
some frequency jams make it difficult to use one pressing method ( called Direct Metal Mastering ), so we are going for the good old lacquers...
tests on the way, stay tuned for this excellent release !

those 2 nice things will be available end of september - you can preorder now !

the Dave Phillips / Cornelia Hesse-Honegger release is also in the stage of being mastered, but still needs some fine-tuning.
so, stay tuned !

picked up the Yi-Jing this morning,
got #49 "GE" = Révolution (Renouveler)

Little excerpt from "Le livre des changements" by Pierre Faure :

"Révolution est un moment de renouvellement
et de remise à jour radicale.Il doit amener à la prise de conscience
qu'une manière d'être, une emprise ou une domination est devenue
obsolète. Cependant le désir de se débaraser de ce qui ne fonctionne
plus ne doit pas aveugler. Le choix du moment conditionne la réussite
du bouleversement. La révolution ne peut aboutir à un réajustement
durable que si elle est améne à l'heure juste, c'est-à-dire quand l'autorité
qui doit succéder au mandat actuel est prête à en prendre la relève." ( p794)

11 july "gulden ontsporing" playlist / Lanz / Phillips "Schimpfluch-Commune Int." (Nihil)

excellent doom/earth project from Dave Phillips, bass, distortion and gloom

5. Dave Phillips "ghi âm viêt nam" (Little enjoyer) TIP!
reconstituted soundscape from Viet-Nam, a must for the fans of La Selva

6. Scout Niblett "The calcination of Scout Niblett" (Drag City) TIP!
darker and desolate stuff from Scout, one more gem to her discography
7. V.A. "j'ee-haw remixed" 2CD-R (Esc.rec)
8. The Meditations "I love Jah" (Wackies)
9. Gil Scott-Heron "The best of" (Arista)

Our Sa'aidi Hardcore & Baladi Breakbeats friend Mutamassik just released her newest album, "That which death cannot destroy",
one that cannot be bought or sold, and so, available for download here.
Check it out !!!



Tobias Fischer from Tokafi just published a "15 questions" to Kraig Grady, with a nice introduction to his release on ini.itu; a full review should follow.

On Furthernoise, we have Roger Mills reviewing the Anaphoria and the López LPs, with some wonderful words about ini.itu :

"Think of field trips to Java or the 1895 Exposition Universelles organised by Colin McPhee, Henry Cowell or Claude Debussy with Harry Parch and Pierre Schaeffer in tow, and you will be somewhere in the ball park of where this unique label is."

Thanks to Jeroen de Wandel for playing Twinkle³ in one of his shows.
You can listen to them online - very tasty !


The end of last year ( 2009 in case you didnt remember ) is still here, with Gregg Wager featuring Anaphoria in his best-of the year :
Check it out on Perfect Sound Forever website.

This morning, francisco lópez's "untitled #228" suddenly appeared on the so-called from Russia
of course it WASNT, and upon asking, it was kindly removed. Should i say thanks ?
They were asking 0.9€ for the download.



Anyway, we are starting a new bunch of projected releases, that might materialize around 2011 or 2012,
involving languages, semantic and semiotic exchanges between Indonesia and Europe, and of course... experimental music & field recordings !
The first stone in that direction was this email / post to our friends :

hi !
for a new project, i'm looking for words in bahasa that are rooted ( but slightly modified ) in the following languages :
Dutch, French, German and Italian.
The first one is quite easy : kantor, apotek, polisi, kualitas, wortel, kamar, rokok, korupsi all come from appropriated dutch words.
But i've had no luck in finding examples for the other 3 languages...    So, has anyone ideas ?    Extra ones for the first category are also welcome.

I'll set up a page soon with the first results, amazing :)
if you have any word, feel free to mail us !


Looks like our francisco lópez "untitled #228" release is already highly downloaded on torrents, soulseek and other illegal download websites.
the file is called "francisco lopez untitled 228 LP BCC", and the uploader was kind enough to put a link to our website.
why not some little promotion for our other releases at the same time ? would be appreciated !
Well, anyway, we already have 3 crews from RIAA doing shifts to resolve that problem...

No, seriously, what's the point ?
all i can tell is that, kids, an mp3 on your ipod is not the same as a vinyl on your turntable :)
still, enjoy the listening !

Moving on, we are waiting for the mastering of our next release, by d'incise.
this release will be accompanied, in some copies, by a Serigraphy, made by Laurent Peter himself.
you can reserve one if you feel like !

and now something you all have been waiting for since at least november 2009, a new playlist :
( i hope one day the guys from The Wire will see that it's pre-formatted to fit their monthly column )

2 february 2010 "back to Masada" playlist

1. Andrea Parker "Melodious Thunk" (Mo'Wax) TIP!
2. Diatribes feat. Curado & Viegas "Travessia Dos Respigadores" (Test Tube) TIP!

So, many news :

Here we are again, after a familial week-end in the lowlands, meeting DJ DMDN from the excellent vinyl shop Antenne in Tilburg;
and after a nice evening in Amsterdam, with francisco lópez having a talk about his Mamori (Amazon) stages,

a talk that was held in the lab of the impressive Optofonica foundation, thanks to their dynamic and friendly members ( TeZ, Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand )
They should have works featured in the upcoming Sonic Arts festival, check it out if you are in Amsterdam by end february !

First of all, we were delighted that "untitled #228" was *ALBUM OF THE WEEK* for Boomkat, last week !
Great to see that album recognized at its right value. It also means it will fly away fast :)
and... ahum... i just checked, it's sold out from them already.
Best next places to watch for it if you're still looking : Drone Records and Metamkine.

One more review for that same album, by James Wyness, on his blog. Check it out, there is a nice reflection about "absolute noise concrete", worth developping.
a great reviewer that will still hear from ini.itu for our next releases ( we have 4 in the pipeline for 2010 )

Speaking about that, we met Laurent Peter, better known as d'incise, this week-end, to finalize his LP for ini.itu,
which will be called "Rivages sur l'antipode". A great selection of spliced field-recordings, rearranged with alinear and broken rythms
- tip ! -


2 new reviews for our Anaphoria LP !

Curiouser and curiouser still, you can get the whole ini.itu catalogue here : No Man's Land (GER) and SoundOhm (IT)

several interesting things for next week-end :
Diatribes ( feat. d'incise ) + Julia Eckhardt will be playing in Bruxelles on sunday 24th, @ obsessions intimes. - we might be there !
francisco lópez
will make a speech at Optofonica in Amsterdam on saturday 23rd - we'll be there !

"Saturday, January 23rd, 19:30
Optofonica Laboratory
Damrak 70, Amsterdam

Spanish sound artist and biologist, Francisco Lopez, will present an immersive listening experience of his recent recordings in the Amazon jungle.  After a career as an entomologist, particularly conducting field work on insect communication, Lopez became interested in sound art.  Among his numerous and renowned activities as a composer, he has been directing acoustic workshops in the wildest  depths of the Brazilian rain forest for the past 10 years.  In addition to multi-channel sonic documentations, Lopez will share stories of animal encounters and other survivalist episodes. "


By mysterious ways, we are now available from A-Musik too :)


Stay-at-home-indie-pop liked our Twinkle³ album, and put it at a decent #32 place for its annual top :)

Great times for ini.itu : things are starting to open up in the United States of America for us.
first of all, interest from the Muffs community :)
leading to possible distribution deals with Ear/Rational and a bit later this year with Mimaroglu Music Sales .
so, US fans, be calmed, soon the prohibitive postal costs might be old nightmares and you could spin our wonderful ini.itu's without worry.

You can also expect a few new distributors by the end of september : Vinyllia record shop in Gent (Belgium) and CounSouling Sounds (Mail-order, Belgium)

Also, a few news from friends of ini.itu, on other labels :

Dave Phillips has a 2CD-R release, based on field recordings of frogs on Scrotum Records !

David Ross and Richard Scott, from Twinkle³, are also part of Grutronics, with Stephen Grew, Nick Grew.
joined by Orphy Robinson and Paul Obermayer, they have a new release on Emanem
it's a much more busy and dense plate than their succulent "Let's make a solar system ", worth checking out


One more network, ini.itu is now using also

the Anaphoria LP is being pressed, dont hesitate to pre-order.

New review by Justin Wunsch from Dusted Magazine for the Twinkle³ release !
check it out in the reviews page


Busy end of the month at ini.itu's headquarters :
with 2 further releases coming to completion, it looks like the end of the year will be hot !
One is a project by d'incise, from Switzerland, the other one is by none other than Francisco López.
they both reconfigured sounds from blindhaed's field recordings archive into masterful compositions.
final details still have to be settled, so stay tuned !

Meanwhile the Kraig Grady / Anaphoria is to be released imminently...


Wonderful deep review of Blindhaed's "Whether" by Tobias Fischer from Tokafi : here


Few news these last weeks, but we've been very busy mastering/finishing the Kraig Grady/Anaphoria release.
should be out within a few weeks now !

We realised our first release ( Blindhaed ) appeared on russian torrents.   What should we think about it ?
Right now they are very busy finishing a new album, whose title should be "Laguna Sunrise"
It features contributions by David Ross, Sarah Vacher, Richard Scott, Marcos "One Man Nation" and Federico Barabino


Our next release, "Anaphoria : Footpaths and Trade Routes" ( featuring Kraig Grady) should be out in July 2009
pre-orders are possible by e-mail

Frans de Waard announced on his blog that ini.itu will release some of his stuff
We gladly confirm that :)
It should be under his Freiband moniker

Blindhaed are finishing a drone album and several spare tracks, adding layers upon layers
It will hopefully feature raw sounds from a few friends of them,
among others David Ross, Richard Scott  & a few others
who still have to send their contributions.
it should be out on drone-specialized labels.

Still needs to be assessed by David Ross and Richard Scott from the band, though.
We expect those albums to be quickly out of our doors when they arrive.

in the meantime we got confirmations from 3 great artists that they are cooking something for us ;)


Test pressings for Twinkle³ on the way !
Promos will be sent very soon...
two lo-fi MP3 samples on the main page !


our second release, by Twinkle³ is on its way : labels are already printed !   vinyl should follow soon :)
we are very excited by this new release, that will definitely mean a jump up in quality for ini.itu

since we spent a week or so in Lisboa we had the opportunity to hear a lot of fado ( incl. Fado Museum ), which we really enjoy here.
Definitely crunches for Celeste Rodrigues ( the sister of the famous one ), Aldina Duarte & long known Maria Teresa de Noronha.
also visiting Fernando Pessoa's latest house was a high point in our stay - we hope one day we could perform in that space !

We could temporarily host the website somewhere, but still with those horrible ads.
We'll sort this out in a few days.


It's been a while since the last update, thanks to our Fujitsu-Siemens 22" brand new screen who decided to give up after one month of use.   Thanks !
Quite a few better things happened in the meantime : firstly, a new review by Frans De Waard from Vital Weekly 649 ! the man liked our stuff :)
Second, a few new contacts who are willing to release something with us in the next few months.   Very promising stuff ! We hardly cant wait !
Third, we heard that vinyl 0801 #036 had been broken in two by an Australian postman.   poor thing.   We'll try to provide the folks at Cyclic Defrost with a replacement.
Another good news, we'll probably be available through Cold Spring in the UK.


Added a F.A.Q. section
Some ini.itu's are already flying all over Europe tonight
