DON MANDARIN - TAPES 'Art Edition' Box-Set. Volumes 1 - 2 - 3


Around three years ago when I was still living at 'bum towers' I answered my door to a guy handing me a bunch of cassettes, asking if I was Bumtapes and did I want to give them a listen. I don't think much else was said except "cheers, I'll check them out" he seemed in a rush and I didn't catch his name.  Due to the state of my flat (and myself) at the time, they got covered by piles of junk before I got to play them. When they finally appeared again some time later, listening to them, I was blown away with its mixture of Musique Concrete and strange urban and industrial ambience. No contact details, only vague and conflicting titles. I couldn't even remember what the guy looked like and internet searches drew a blank, so the tapes slowly got mixed up in the piles again.  About six months later he finally got in contact again and after two years of sporadic emails and missed meetings we finally met up to dig through a mountain of unreleased tape recordings (far too many to pass on) to get the long promised release realised.
A three volume box-set housed in high quality embossed card boxes with numbered screen-printed dust covers and individual photographs. Each volume consists of five cassettes and a three colour screen-printed/spray painted A3 art print. All handmade by Bathtub-Printing/Bumtapes.

If you have an old radio and you turn the tuning wheel right to the end of the frequency dial then force it a bit more til the wheel breaks, you'll find similar transmissions. Documented exorcisms of old tape machines. An audio travel diary of the passing between rooms.
