801383 arrives at Recycled Plastics in a rusting metal rocket that has landed auspiciously in the valley behind our studio. Emblazoned across the side, beneath a small clouded porthole, is the spraypainted phrase "RAW POWER". A nice young Englishman steps out, and says his name is Graeme. He opens up a small box and removes a few cassette tapes, gently smirking at an unspoken punchline as he looks over them. He walks over to us, with the tapes held behind his back, and says he has a surprise for us, that we need to close our eyes and hold our hand out. Apprehensive, but always up for some fun, we comply and are promptly punched in the face and knocked out. We wake up an indeterminate amount of time later, at the bottom of the valley, with leaves blowing across our clothes. Graeme and his rocket are nowhere to be found, but as we slowly come to and rise up on our feet, we notice a cassette tape stuffed into our hoodie pocket. There's a note with it - "Look out honey, 'cause I'm using technology!"
Upon further inspection once we reenter the studio, we have a pretty nasty concussion. What the hell, we may as well pop in the cassette while we decompress. Immediately, our ears burst in wide streams of blood, spattering all over the walls and equipment and scaring the shit out of our cats. It's never gonna come out of the carpet. We're not sure how we're going to operate a record label now, without the ability to hear, but we're certain that 801383 is to blame. With no way to locate Graeme and his elusive rocket, our only recourse is to release the contents of his cassette in an attempt to contact him, and get him to pay for our ear surgery. Thankfully, our resident studio wizard The Analog Botanist was able to carefully handle the caustic audio in the proper fashion, and distill from it sound that, while still extremely acidic, is safe for human ears and non-government grade stereo systems.
Handle with care! And remember, only you can prevent acid fires - this is music from the man who sent our pretty face to hell.

W/P by 801383. Mastered by The Analog Botanist. This is Recycled Plastics number BC57, and 57th in the ongoing Bedroom Compost series. No felines were harmed in the production of this record.
Astonishingly good electronic tunes for a tenner and for a good cause. As well as titans 808 State, Autechre, Plaid, B12, etc... the lesser known artists shine. Get and enjoy! Played Quandary Wand at my wedding after Halcyon by Orbital. :) Egg Wizard
