The player above is linking through to Discus Music's Bandcamp site. We love Bandcamp for its player and download delivery - but we prefer you to return here and buy direct from our main website! If you decide to buy PLEASE use the Add To Basket button above not the buy link in the player.
Here's why –
1 - It could cost you less. Depending on where you live and the product you choose, Bandcamp can add 20% VAT to the basic price.
2 - If you spend more than £25 here, you get a 30% discount on the extra spent. That discount isn't available on Bandcamp.
3 - Discus pays 15% commission on the Bandcamp price, which means we receive less cash to plough back into our new releases.
4 – You’ll still be able to access your music through your Bandcamp collection even when you buy direct from Discus.
Two new tracks on 10” VINYL (plus download once the vinyl is sold out) in a strictly limited edition of just 50 physical copies, signed and numbered.
As vinyl lovers from our younger days, Discus Music always hoped to revisit the format when economically viable and here is a "toe in the water" release. If it's a success, more may follow! It features 2 tracks by Das Rad, especially recorded for this project - "Qul Na Qar" and “Alysum”. Individually hand-cut and checked by a local lathier, the package will include gifts such as hand-made origami and signed sleeve liner.

Martin Archer – woodwind, keyboards, synth bass, electronics
Steve Dinsdale – drums, keyboards, electronics
The British trio come out with this interesting short record – two songs/suites from about 7 minutes each – which offers an impro-progressive Sheffield-style instrumental rock. Packed with psycho-lounge atmospheres, enticing sounds between liquid and scratching, and well-congeniated quasi-narrative developments, the album immerses the listener in enveloping volutes of sound, amid melodic suggestions and robust quasi-punk waves. - A G Bertinetto, Kathodik
