QCS_094-Zebra Mu, Perennial Indifference, C11 + 8-page mini art zine, edition of 15

A brand new Zebra Mu cassette single and 8-page mini collage art zine created in anticipation for the upcoming Norwich Arts Centre Zine Fair on the 13th August!

Two distinctly contrasting tracks were crafted; Side A is a slab of overdriven lo-fi drone noise whilst Side B features an assortment of junk metal tape loops, scratchy noise and bleeps. The eight-page mini B&W collage art zine (printed onto red paper) serves as an abstract visual interpretation of both audio tracks.
Each cassette also includes decorative B&W printed labels with additional red rubber-stamped detail. A narrow blue paper band holds the tape and zine together and features B&W art work and additional information.

Damages ‘Fractures’ C41 Out NOW!

Damages 1
Damages 2 Loop

QCS_087-Damages, Fractures, C41, edition of 18

After a long wait the Damages tape has finally materialised! Behind Damages is Douglas Lucas – a multimedia artist based in Brooklyn, New York who also runs the genius NONE Records.
All sounds on this tape are from the same recording of an electric guitar improvisation recorded on cassette. The recording was damaged by being re-recorded onto another cassette while being filtered through a broken amp and various pedals, then pulling out, wadding, and ripping the tape from that cassette, then re-spooling it back into the cassette and transferring it to a computer for further damages.
Very minimal artwork on this release with only written information being printed onto two sheets of thin white card, that is held together with two damaged six second tape loops containing extracts from side A & B. Black cassette shells feature white labels with black and white artwork and text. Every copy is packaged in an intentionally damaged cassette case courtesy of Damages!

SOLD OUT!
