20170301_163419

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.

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.
