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.

Robert Ridley-Shackleton – Light years of Sodom, God and Splat (C20) SOLD OUT




After having to go to hospital Robert returns with a heap of chaos from his mind straight to your ear holes.  This is true cacophony, everything’s present, vocals, junk electronics, synth, tape manipulation, loops, fear, highs, low’s, evil and good. Limited to 30 copies.

Robert Ridley-Shackleton – His Vile Voyage (Ugly Sister Ship) (3” cd-r maxi single) £4




The maxi single to accompany ‘Sex U Up’ expect lo-fi vocal pop in the same vein to ‘Sex U Up’ except this is more free and scarier. Very limited just 10 copies.

Robert Ridley-Shackleton – Sex U Up (C30) SOLD OUT




After last year’s attempts of pop stardom comes another thirty minute album from the “master of mangled pop”.  This was made after Robert was thrown out of his home, now armed with only looping cassettes and a telephone that he has circuit bent into a microphone.  He feels the need to make a new pop album dedicated to all things rude, hot and steamy. Everything you hear is entirely vocals. Although from the description it sounds minimal the result is pop at its darkest and weird. Limited to 30 copies. Also available as a Cd-r.
