Lost Wax is the solo project of Ben Morris, one half of Chora. I'm delighted to be presenting what, to my knowledge, is his first solo release and it's a real treat. The emphasis here is perhaps more on percussion and field recording than the 'rock' instrumentation employed by the Chora big band, layered and built into heaving long jams. Very cool. Edition of 78 was originally the battered frame of a futon. Cost is £6.50 plus £2.50/£3.50/£5 postage.

First release of 2013. Gael Moissonnier is a French artist and experimental musician based for the past couple of years in Brussels. In the past he's played in the bands Motherfucking, La 6eme Faute and the large free ensemble Faux Amis (with Chora, Helhesten and others). These days he can be found chugging Duvel and monstering his analog synth machine, as he does beautifully here, in a classic one-side-short-pieces/one-
side-sidelong-jam format. Edition of 46 copies comes from a garden chair, stripped of it's unflattering varnish and put back together in a pocket-style cassette sheath. £6.50 plus postage, which will be £2.50 UK/£3.50 Europe/£5 World.
