Noise Music

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!


 

A new split between myself and Cardboard Club prince Robert Ridley-Shackleton (as Duplo Chat) on Quagga Curious Sounds!

Gritty, sparse and lo-fi HNW from Duplo Chat, complimented by an extended noise/drone session assaulted onto a faulty Walkman from myself. Just under 40 minutes running time. Lo-fi is King.
A colour label is mounted onto one side of a recycled light grey cassette, side B features the original tape content. Colour and B&W artwork is printed onto white paper and inserted in a green backed library case.

SOLD OUT

Monumental is the first microcassette release I’ve directly worked on and released via Quagga Curious Sounds! It features two slabs of brutal lo-fi mono harsh noise wall, with the option of being played at either 2.4 cm/s (60 minutes total running time) or double the duration by playing at 1.2 cm/s.

Folded artwork is printed in red ink onto black paper, an additional insert is printed in black ink onto red card. Each labelled microcassette is tied up with black ribbon and packaged in a black and silver zip lock bag.

It was released in an edition of six copies and sold out almost immediately upon release! If you missed it check out this brief demo video>>>>

Torturing Nurse / Zebra Mu Split C10 is out now on my label Quagga Curious Sounds!

Anticipate two slabs of straight up ruthless Harsh Noise from myself and Torturing Nurse!

Each copy features a black cassette shell with colour labels and double-sided colour artwork printed onto two sheets of white card. Every cassette is folded inside a printed B&W collage on yellow paper that is held together with a rubber-stamped colour sticker. A random 35mm vintage colour slide or cloth patch is included; everything is packaged inside a clear zip-lock bag.

SOLD OUT

Only a handful of these highly experimental lathe cut records were pressed, consequently they sold out almost immediately. Don’t worry if you missed this one, the next batch is already being planned!

QCS_098 Zebra Mu “Plastic Junk Warp” 5″ s/sided rectangular recycled plastic lathe cut 33⅓ RPM (edition of 4)

Just over a minute of primitive junk metal bashing with a smattering of squealing electronics!

This lathe cut record is possibly the first of its kind: each copy is sourced from recycled plastic packaging commonly used for Christmas and greeting card multi-packs! As you would expect this is an highly experimental and (very) lo-fi record, comparable in sound quality to the picnic plate lathe cuts I’ve released in the past.
Every copy features B&W artwork printed onto silver paper, also included is a rubber-stamped sticker and B&W paper insert printed onto light grey paper.

Tape and covers

Insert

Flexi Loop Tape is included on a new series of four second loop tapes released by the eclectic Italian DIY label Lonktaar! (http://lonktaar.blogspot.co.uk)

A different recording is on every loop, chiefly from playing modified 7″ flexi discs through various delay and distortion pedals. Expect slices of nasty snatch-and-scrape bruitism which can be played forever…….

Each copy features a spray-painted black recycled tape packaged in a unique hand-decorated white envelope. A photocopied and spray-painted card insert, label flyer and black napkin is also included.
