I’m thrilled to present RPM PM M, a new self-released Zebra Mu 3”CDr.

Six tracks that can be best described as chaotic and frenzied sound collages, crafted from cut up/hole-punched flexi discs and damaged anti-records. For added fun these were played with two tone arms simultaneously: frequently at the wrong speed! All recorded live in one take.

Artwork and titles are rubber-stamped onto used/creased brown packaging paper. Each 3”CDr is stickered and rubber-stamped, a segment of flexi disc used to create track 2 is included with every copy. Edition of 18 hand-numbered copies.

£4.30 (UK)
£6.55 (Europe)
£7.30 (Worldwide)

A Zebra Mu track is featured on the excellent Electronic Cottage Compilation 6: Rubber Stamp Sound

It was originally released on cassette last year, and consisted of recordings by 45 members of the Electronic Cottage community. Contributors submitted lo-fi/live/personal recordings of two minutes or less via sending Hal McGee a cassette, all artists were required to speak their names and locations at the beginning of their recordings.

It is now available via Bandcamp to stream, download or purchase as a double CDr! >>>

My first ever digital only release on Quagga Curious Sounds!
