GX Jupitter-Larsen / Zebra Mu “Split” 1″ Lathe Cut Pre-Order

AT LAST!!! It 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!!

This is the smallest lathe cut QCS will ever release, possibly one of the smallest in the world too. 110 will be made, ironically it is the most copies I’ve ever put out as well. This dinky split will feature an exclusive (and very short) track from GX and myself. Expect a spoken word piece from GX and experimental noise/drone type composition from yours truly. Each 1” will be nestled in fold-out artwork and other packaging delights….

Prices are (GBP):

£5.50 (UK)
£7.75 (Europe)
£8.90 (Worldwide)
PayPal/contact: mike-ridge[AT]hotmail.co.uk

Estimated time of release upon writing this post is about 6-7 weeks, they will be dispatched to you on the day of release.

**PLEASE BE AWARE** This is (obviously) a handmade and extremely experimental lathe cut record (45 RPM), monstrously lo-fi and stupidly challenging to play…. HELL YES!!
