New Releases by Public Works a.k.a. The Tape-beatles


Consider this object to be a scratch instrument. Consider it a work of
spinning beauty. An unexpected repurposing of old work in an _au courant_
obsolete form. A plagiarism of itself. An audio fine print.
Retro-po-mo-self-parody, if you must. But above all, consider it.

These are the Facts: This is a limited edition (only 200 copies have been
pressed) of which we have a limited number to sell (10% of the press run,
and not expecting to get more). Each side features a different full color
graphic extemporizing on the original 1990 release's graphic identity in
unexpected ways. The grooves are clean sounding and of a high quality. The
31 tracks are the same as in the 1990 release, nothing added or taken away.
You will sample it, you will do 'scratch' improvisations with it. Or you
will turn it into a wall hanging, or clock. Mostly, you will simply
treasure it, for you will know you took advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime

But wait, says the sly salesman, there's more.

---PLUNDERPHONIC ALL STARS live at the VOLKSBUEHNE in Berlin (LP on Kleptones)

Tracks culled from the 5-hour long PLUNDERPHONIC ALL STARS jam that took
place at the Cocktail Festival in Berlin on 10 October 1997. Participating
for all they're worth were: UK's Barbed, US's Public Works, Germany's
Leumund Fieling, France's Dominique Petitgand, and Holland's Muzic
Toerist. We stayed up late scratching a long wriggling groove on a vinyl
surface and then, ever so gently, wrapping the result around in a careful
spiral some 900 feet long, so that when a special feeler or 'stylus' is
placed in the groove and it is sent spinning the magical vibrations of the
groove are flung out into the air for all to hear. (You must provide the

But, you say, what is on this magical platter? One side of the LP contains
20-odd minutes chosen by Barbed from what they consider to be the evening's
highlights; the other side contains Public Works' selections. All
participated throughout. Since the evening was a 5-hour improvisation,
there was lots to choose from and all the selections are strong. This is an
all-new work that exists in no other form. Plain Jane gray cover; the disk
itself is on milky white vinyl.

---THE POINT IS, um, these are for sale

Remember these are LIMITED EDITIONS and there won't be any more made. And,
we really need the money to enhance our performance and produce a CD,
called GOOD TIMES, which will be our 5th. So we are taking advantange of
the rare desirability of these pieces and using them as a FUNDRAISER to get
ourselves out of hock and make more work for you to buy later on.

The prices are (limit 2 copies of each to a customer):

US$25.00 for MUSIC WITH SOUND Picture Disk LP
US$18.00 for PLUNDERPHONIC ALL STAR on White Vinyl LP

The prices are postage paid and in US dollars. We accept cash, check, money
order, or foreign currency equivalent if you send cash (at your risk). If
you are ordering from outside Canada/US/Mexico, add an additional $5 to
your order to cover additional postage costs. We don't expect these to last
long, so do not delay with your order.

address they should be shipped to to:
