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 a 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.

The box houses a rubber-stamped CDr, eight-page mini booklet printed onto tracing paper/white card and stickered late 19th or early 20th century portrait photograph.
