Robert Ridley-Shackleton / Kapali Carsi – Wet Dipole (C40 Split) £4

Kapali Carsi is a true underdog to the Avant-garde. His sounds are very minimal and austere. However what make KC so fresh is that his simple sounds can have serious tension and although sometimes deadly serious can seem very free, almost like a serious ‘art-brut’.  This split cassette is almost entirely focussed on microphones, which nearly dominates all of Kapali Carsi’s work and has also been a key concept through Robert’s work lately. Robert’s side of the tape is less tense and more crude and diseased.  This cassette is perfect for all your scrapping, bangs and breathing needs. Limited to 35 copies.
