Steve Cleary from the Sound and Vision Blog, at the British Library has covered the recent 1″ lathe cut record split with GX Jupitter-Larsen, comparing it to the delightful 34 mm dolls’ house 78 rpm disc in their collection. You can read the full blog post here:
Our split is also now included in the British Library Sound & Moving Image Catalogue too!
Likely to be one of the smallest lathe cut records ever released! GX and I each recorded an exclusive eight second composition for this project. GX contributed a spoken word piece, whilst I contrasted this with an experimental noise/drone work.
Each clear 1” lathe cut is nestled in a clear PVC coin wallet, with fold-out artwork printed in blue ink onto yellow paper. Every copy comes in a 2” x 2.8” grey drawstring velvet bag, complete with a shrunken QCS promo flyer. Edition of 110 hand-numbered copies (the largest ever edition number on Quagga Curious Sounds!).
Depending on where you live, prices are (GBP):
**PLEASE BE AWARE** This is a handmade and extremely experimental lathe cut record, expect it to be monstrously lo-fi and VERY challenging to play…. HAVE FUN!
This has taken over a year of planning but FINALLY I’m now accepting pre-orders for GX Jupitter-Larsen / Zebra Mu Split 1″ lathe cut record on Quagga Curious Sounds!
Pre-orders are now closed.
Estimated time of release upon writing this post is about 6-7 weeks, they will be dispatched to you on the day it is out.
**PLEASE BE AWARE** Expect a handmade and extremely experimental lathe cut record (45 RPM), monstrously lo-fi and stupidly challenging to play…. EXCELLENT!
Just over a minute of focused Harsh Noise and squawking electronics cut onto 5.5″ square pieces of recycled clear plastic, originally used to package venetian blinds! A highly experimental and very lo-fi lathe cut record, a lot of surface noise is present and sound quality comparable to a picnic plate lathe cut or old 78.
Every copy features B&W artwork/information printed onto pearlescent bronze paper. Each record is housed in a white paper sleeve with artwork printed in green ink.
Released on Quagga Curious Sounds in an edition of 11 hand-numbered copies, unfortunately these are now sold out!
I’m very excited to announce the release of my split with the legendary Noise project Torturing Nurse – all crammed onto a tiny 3″ lathe cut record! Expect two super short tracks of horrible lo-fi frantic Harsh Noise weirdness! Play this to take your mind off recent world events!
Front and back B&W cover art is printed onto clear acetate and housed inside a clear CD sleeve. Small rubber-stamped stickers are mounted onto each lathe and secured onto red pearlescent card; additional B&W art/cut-outs are printed onto yellow paper.
This is released on my label Quagga Curious Sounds, you can purchase a copy directly from myself:
**PLEASE BE AWARE** this is a handmade and highly experimental/lo-fi record! These seem to play well on older turntables, odd models and those that play to the spindle.
Super Short Video Preview >>>>>>>>>
I’m thrilled to present Trick Reflection on Quagga Curious Sounds. This custom made 2” lathe cut record contains two new Zebra Mu tracks of woozy experimental noise sourced from a circuit bent keyboard and tricked out echo pedal.
Each black lathe cut record comes in a zip lock bag with b/w fold-out artwork printed onto yellow paper. Every copy is packaged in a blue velvet drawstring bag with a random advert cut-out from a 1940’s newspaper.
**PLEASE BE AWARE** this is a handmade and highly experimental/lo-fi record that will likely only play on older turntables, odd models and those that play to the spindle .
