  • Ridiculously Limited 8-Track Stereo Cartridge with serviced New/Old Stock player
    Cassette

    Only five of these exist. The release is named after this limited edition package, but few will own it.

    Strictly first-come-first-served. Two units are pre-sold. It is NOT A STANDARD COMPACT CASSETTE, but a Stereo Cartridge.

    Individually recorded 8-track cartridge with player. The players have been mechanically overhauled, and play as accurately as they were intended. They are approximately 40 years old and are built around a quality Matsushita chassis, hence our cheeky branding of "Notional Technostalgic". The players will be supplied with no mains plug, so please ensure you are confident or qualified to fit one to suit your local supply. Voltage is 240v. These items are primarily intended for retro-novelty, rarity and collectable value, so have no warranty implied, but we will refund or repair any item considered to be faulty within six months of delivery. The sound quality is typical of the genre, with a full range audio owing to the tape speed, but an audible flutter due to the endless tape loop. The program is recorded twice on the tape, so tracks 1 and 3 are the same tunes, as are 2 and 4. This eliminates the inconsistent sound quality across the four stereo programs.

    Every example has numbered and signed packaging (this is as old as the player, so will be foxed) and is supplied with a FREE copy of the 7" record and of course the digital version.

  • Standard 8-track Cartridge only.
    Cassette

    NOT A STANDARD COMPACT CASSETTE, but a Stereo Cartridge.

    Created for those listeners who already own an 8-track cartridge player and recorded to order. ie this is not a limited release, but will be recorded individually as demand dictates. A bit like those hateful "limited editions" from the Franklin Mint, these will be limited to however many people order it.. Quality and availability may vary as per available tape stock.

    Still nice tho.

    And not a cassette.

    CURRENT BATCH ALMOST SOLD OUT. AWAITING TAPE STOCK.

  • Extremely limited edition handmade 78rpm 10" record
    Record/Vinyl

    Only 15, yes, FIFTEEN of these beautiful handmade records exist. There are ten left available to buy thru Bandcamp, the remaining 5 have been pre-sold. One was presented to Matt Berry as a 'thank-you' for him letting us use his vocal.

    Every example is hand made from beginning to end, and is not a 'pressing' but an individually cut copy made for us by Steven Chamberlain of Ed's Vinyl. The label design was by Hamstall Ridware and realised by Ethan Russell at Pink Sky Design of Cheltenham, and the brown paper vintage-look sleeves were individually printed on a 1936 Heidelberg press using brand new/old stock blocks by W.L.Langsbury in Cheltenham. Every copy is unique, numbered and signed. Included will be a FREE copy of the ice-cream white 7" record.

    Strictly one copy per purchaser.


    NB: These are 78rpm discs intended to be played with a lightweight pickup with diamond stylus. They are not intended for use on mechanical gramophones with a needle intended to play shellac 78s. They will sound authentic on a hi-fi unit with stereo cartridge, but may be played on portable units such as vintage Dansettes (authentic mid-fi), hipster Crosleys (not nice really) etc with correspondingly typical increased groove wear.
