Flux Cass Collab’ is a collaboration with Kommissar Hjuler and Mama Baer (Kommissar Hjuler Und Frau) released as a CDr on their label Der Schöne Hjuler-Memorial-Fond.

The husband and wife duo sent me a track; I reworked this live in my studio through a modified/broken cassette player, circuit bent echo pedal and delay pedal. The result is a warbled, spluttering and occasionally noisy composition!

 

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):

SOLD OUT

**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!


 

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

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.

SOLD OUT
