Michael Ridge “Live Tape Loops” s/sided C43 Version

QCS_137 Michael Ridge “Live Tape Loops” s/sided C43 (edition of 14)

Many of you have asked so I’m pleased to present the cassette version of “Live Tape Loops” released digitally back in April! Rough and improvised tape loop jam using a combination of two microcassette loops and one cassette loop, playing a mix of field recordings, singing bowl experiments and heavily warbled/slowed down classical music. The soundtrack to my lockdown experience.

Colour artwork is printed onto card and packaged in a square zip lock bag. A rubber-stamped sticker decorates each black cassette shell, every copy also includes a small clump of unspooled classical music tape.

Two New Lathe Cut Records On QCS!

QCS_128 Michael Ridge “Bottle Bank” 7″ s/sided square locked groove lathe cut record 33 ⅓ RPM (edition of 12)

This already existed as a one-off edition cut for the Stretch & Burn artist residency last year at Dove Street Studios. The concept for this project is simple: the sound of glass bottles smashing inside a bottle bank unceasingly plays on a single 1.6 second locked groove. Play it for 1.6 seconds or 16 hours!!

Colour artwork is printed onto white card, an additional B&W insert is printed onto light blue paper.

Check out this short documentation video of my own copy being played:



QCS_129 Zebra Mu “Sweat Loop Road Fuck” 4.75″ s/sided square lathe cut record 33 ⅓ RPM (edition of 14)

Uneasy and drunken trash tape loop session derived from a clump of discarded tape found on the side of the road. Garbled half-speed spoken word nonsense and other unidentified noises at work.

Each lathe cut record is packaged in a clear plastic CD sleeve. Folded colour artwork is printed onto white paper with an additional B&W insert printed onto red paper

Norfolk Trotter “Nodule” reel-to-reel loop

QCS_124 Norfolk Trotter “Nodule” reel-to-reel loop (edition of 15)

Experimental and lo-fi Harsh Noise Wall reel-to-reel loops from my side-project Norfolk Trotter. Nodule comprises of an 8 second loop documenting two live recording sessions, both captured utilising a 1960’s Stellaphone ST470 portable open reel tape recorder. The first Wall is crafted from amplifying and distorting the vibrations generated from grinding two flint nodules together. The second is a sparser and more exploratory piece, focusing on the texture of the flint cortex with minimal distortion used.

Front cover artwork is printed in red, whilst the inside cover is printed in black onto light blue paper. Each loop is packaged in a black backed library cassette case. Upon purchase you can also be sent via WeTransfer two 19 minute recordings from my own loop being played back.

QCS_121 Michael Ridge “Dreams In Vintage Hairy Latex” 8″ s/sided latex anti-record 78 RPM & b/card CDr (edition of 8)

A tenderly crafted latex anti-record containing bodily fluids and generous amounts of pubic hair trapped just under the playing surface. This surely is the true sound of love. A b/card CDr accompanies each copy that documents several attempts at playback.

Each anti-record is protected in a custom made card and paper sleeve (every copy has unique art work). All copies have a different centre label sourced from recycled vintage paper record sleeves. A B&W paper insert printed onto yellow paper also accompanies each copy.

QCS_118 Zebra Mu “Anti Flex 2” s/sided flexi-disc anti-record 33 ⅓ RPM and CDr (edition of 7)

Follow up to the first Anti-Flex released in 2010! Relatively playable with plenty of surface noise (as you would expect) and slithers of the original contents seeping through. For added fun I recommend utilising the additional holes on the playing surface…..

Every flexi features a colour centre label and includes a paper insert printed in magenta ink onto pink paper, these are housed in a stickered black card sleeve. An accompanying CDr documents various attempts at playing each one, this is housed in a folded colour paper sleeve.
