Artwork + Sale Bundles, Part 2

Hello All:

It’s time once again to attempt to trawl for some funds. I’m afraid that, for the foreseeable future, this is probably going to be a regular event in some form or another! At the moment, I’m looking to fill in the gap while the next new album is being prepared, and also to cover some of the material costs involved in making that happen.

The next album (titled ’10 Stations’) is going to have a completely hand-assembled package rather than a jewel case, and some original art will be a part of every copy. I’ve assembled some raw prototypes with cheaper materials just to make sure the design will actually work (which appears to be the case), and as soon as I get a few copies assembled with the proper materials I’ll post some images. Doing all the original art will take some time. The audio content for the album is about three-quarters complete right now, with five of the ten tracks finished and the remaining five tracks all in progress. In the meantime, I’ll be posting some outtakes & alternates (as well as some actual excerpts) to the irr. Soundcloud page. The first of these has already been posted and is linked below. Full details about the track can be found in the description on Soundcloud.

Onward to the fund-grubbing. There is only one of each listed item (or bundle) available, so send me an e-mail me at irrappext@gmail.com if you’re interested. Feel free to ask questions! Combined postage can be calculated for any multiple-item orders. For US orders, I’ll have to use Priority Mail since artwork cannot be sent by Media Mail.

All artwork will be sent enclosed in a protective sleeve.

AT JENNIE RICHIE CASSETTE BUNDLE + MSW DRAWING   SOLD

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

I’ve collected together my surplus copies of AJR cassette releases, a copy of the ‘In A Dream With Poe’ CDR, and added an original drawing of my own to the bundle. I’ve done a number of collaborations with AJR over the years, who were also the instigators for the Nine Day Antler Society online gallery. Most AJR releases have been small editions and can be difficult to find even when they are brand new, so this bundle is a good introduction to a worthy project. Further details on the releases can be found on Discogs and at atjennierichie.blogspot.com.

Included in the bundle:

‘That Which Blows, That Which Rolls’ – C14 [edition of 50]
‘Like Spain, Silver Spots Boil’ – C40 [edition of 66]
‘Halo Blinko’ – C24 [edition of 40]
‘The Communist’s Garden Expansion Plan Plus’ – C30 [edition of 30]
‘Crust War Or Dada W.A.R.’ – 30 second loop cassette [#16 of 23 in sewn paper envelope]
Red Squirrels At Jennie Richie [collaboration with Red Squirrels] – C20 [edition of 25]
‘Unknown Invertebrate Drama’ [split with irr. app. (ext.)] – C33 [edition of 66]
At Jennie Richie & Plethora [split] – C30 [edition of 50]
The Broken Penis Orchestra Meets At Jennie Richie [split] – 2 x C01 [edition of 50]

I’ve uncovered an extra copy of the rare Fistfuck LP ‘Live At Der Putsch, Amsterdam, Nov ’82 / Live At The Air Gallery, London, Jan ’82’. Fistfuck was one of Diana Rogerson’s pre-NWW projects; more information about this can easily be found online. The LP was limited to 150 numbered copies (this is #50) and is pressed on marbled red vinyl. [note: the cover is heavy paper coated on the outside with red latex; the latex aggressively sticks to any protective plastic sleeve, so to make things easier I’ve slit a plastic sleeve down the side so the LP can be removed without having to slide the cover out, and added another sleeve around that sleeve to keep everything safely contained.]

Also included with the LP is a custom CDR of the irr. app. (ext.) / Diana Rogerson collaboration ‘The Famine Road’. Unlike the CDR copies bundled with the LP back in 2007, this is a full 30-minute collection of all 3 tracks packaged with a fold-out insert, double-sided tray card and printed disc in a clear jewel case (the previous CDR copies had just one track & a simple insert in a slimline case). This fully-packaged physical version of the release has not been made available before.

price: LP + CDR for $75
package weight: 27 ounces
postage: US Media $4 or US Priority $13 ; First Class International $22.50
total: US $79 Media or $88 Priority ; international $97.50

A few more bundles with some irr. rarities & special items are in preparation, and maybe some more artwork. More ’10 Stations’ teaser tracks coming soon…

Thanks for your attention! If you’re looking at an e-mail version of this update and the images & text are all jumbled up, my sincere apologies. When there are multiple images, I can’t always figure out how to get them arranged properly.

A spectacular autumn to everyone (even the people not reading this),

Sale Bundles, Part 1

Hello all:

It’s tax time (ugh) here in the States once again, and so I’m prompted to do my annual scramble in hopes of coaxing some funds into the coffers before the tax man drops the axe. I’ve put together a few different bundles of related releases, rarities and artwork — all priced in a range that will hopefully inspire wanton consumer frenzy while still bringing in enough bananas to alleviate the seasonal economic distress.

These bundles are are mostly one-of-a-kind (or very limited), so I’m taking my usual approach of not listing them in the shop to avoid multiple button-pushes on something that has already sold. If you’re interested in one of the bundles, please send me an e-mail at irrappext@gmail.com so I can confirm availability. Also, feel free to get in touch if you have questions about any of the items. Please do not use the payment buttons on any of the artwork that is already listed in the shop: the prices will not be correct.

As always, apologies to people outside of the US for the lousy postage rates.


Bundle #1:

A Beginners Guide To Nurse With Wound, part 3 [expanded version]   –   SOLD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A spectacular way to start off a NWW record collection for yourself, a lonely grandparent, or that grumpy neighbour waiting for a kidney transplant. The bundle includes a profusion of Nursey classics, old and new: Sylvie & Babs (2CD version), Bar Maldoror (2CD version), Dark Fat (2CD) + Dark Drippings bonus disc (#30 gold number edition), Shipwreck Radio Volume 1 (2CD), Shipwreck Radio Final Broadcasts, The Man With The Woman Face + bonus material disc, Soundpooling + Handjob For The Laughing Policeman bonus disc, Spiral Insana (2CD silver book edition), A Sucked Orange (2CD version), Insect & Individual Silenced (expanded), Automating Volume 3, May The Fleas Of A Thousand Camels Infest Your Armpits, Od Lot, A Possible Nursemix (CDR). 23 discs in total. All CD are brand new. The ‘Spiral Insana’ book has some wrinkling at the top left corner due to being poorly packed when it was shipped to me, but is otherwise in new condition.

A special bonus for this bundle is the piece of original artwork pictured above, drawn by yours truly and based on Steven Stapleton’s cheeky ‘Sugar Fish Drink’ capering imp character. The artwork image size is 9″ x 9″, ink on archival board, signed & dated on the back. Click on the images for a closer look.

The price for bundle #1 is $250. Total package weight is 62 oz, so Priority Mail postage in the US is an additional $20, and First Class International postage anywhere else is an additional $50 (*choke*).

A second option is available for the US: I can’t send a package containing artwork via Media Mail, but I can send the art & the discs separately. Media Mail for the bundle of discs (56 oz.) is $4.50, and First Class for the artwork (9 oz.) is $4, so a total of $8.50 to send everything using a slower delivery method & a divided package. Be aware that the two packages will not be arriving at the same time.

Interest/questions: irrappext@gmail.com


Bundle #2:

irr. Cassette Rarities   –   SOLD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This bundle contains a variety of irr. app. (ext.) cassette releases, all of which are limited edition releases and most of which are now out-of-print: Matériaux Déplacés, The 11-Year Backwards Sleepwalk, Flux/Crayfish (which I forgot to include in the photo), “[??]” (irr + Six Heads), Backflow Background (irr split with At Jennie Richie), Unknown Invertebrate Drama (irr split with At Jennie Richie), Cascades Of The Absurd (compilation with irr, Pink Void, At Jennie Richie, Broken Penis Orchestra, Red Squirrels), Readymades Compilation Of Arrangements (compilation with irr, At Jennie Richie, Crank Sturgeon, Vertonen), New Directions In Experimental Music (3 cassette compilation with one side each of irr, The Haters, Mlhest, Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock, Andy Ortmann, Mixed Band Philanthropist — #58/100). 11 cassettes in total.

A special bonus for this bundle is the piece of original artwork pictured above, drawn by someone who is either myself or bears an uncanny resemblance to myself. The artwork image size is 8″ x 8″, ink on archival board, signed & dated on the back. Click on the images for a closer look.

The price for bundle #1 is $90. Total package weight is 34 oz, so Priority Mail postage in the US is an additional $18.50, and First Class International postage anywhere else is an additional $35 (*sigh*).

A second option is available for the US: I can’t send a package containing artwork via Media Mail, but I can send the art & the discs separately. Media Mail for the bundle of cassettes (29 oz.) is $3.50, and First Class for the artwork (6 oz.) is $3.50, so a total of $7 to send everything using a slower delivery method & a divided package. Be aware that the two packages will not be arriving at the same time.

Bundle #3:

Eight Prints To The Wind

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I recently came across a stash of surplus colour digital collage prints that had made for the exhibit at the Goodfoot in Portland a several years back, so I’ve gathered together 8 of the ones that seemed likely to be the most broadly appealing — although I’ll have to admit to having very dubious judgment when it comes to that kind of thing. All prints will be signed and are in a general 9″ to 12″ per-side range (the perfectly square one in the photos is 11″ x 11″, which should give a good idea of the relative sizes of the others). Click on the images for a closer look: the image with the black background has the original digital versions, and other image is a photo of the actual prints.

I believe I have enough prints to sell 5 separate sets of these particular 8 prints.

The price for bundle #3 is $45. Total package weight is 12 oz, so Priority Mail postage in the US is either an additional $4.50/First Class or $9/Priority, and First Class International postage anywhere else is an additional $22.50 (*sob*). Unfortunately, Media Mail is not an option for artwork.

Interest/questions: irrappext@gmail.com


Bundle #4:

Matted Prints  –  SOLD

 

 

 

 

 

I still have two of the colour prints that were signed, single-matted & backed for the Goodfoot exhibit, and for a short time I am offering them for sale individually at $40 each, or as a pair for $70. All boards are archival quality. Click on the image for a closer look.

Individually:

‘Invertebrate Technology’ (top image): 15 1/2″ x 11 3/8″ total matted size.
Package weight is 17 ounces, so $13 Priority Mail postage in the US, and $22.50 First Class International.

‘The 11-Year Backwards Sleepwalk’ (bottom image): 15 1/2″ x 12 3/4″ total matted size.
Package weight is 19 ounces, so $13 Priority Mail postage in the US, and $22.50 First Class International.

Bundled:

Combined package weight is 28 ounces, so $13 Priority Mail US and $22.50 First Class International. So postage is exactly the same for each individually or bundled. Media Mail is not an option for artwork, and the weights are above the 13 ounce limit for US First Class.

Interest/questions: irrappext@gmail.com


I have a few other bundles in preparation, and will try to have them listed in the next few days.

big truckloads of love to everyone

Chewing Some Fat

Hello All:

As usual, I’m running quite far behind on the schedule I’d hoped to be following, and this is prompting me to adjust my plans a little bit. I’ve found it works better to make new items available in clusters to allow people (especially overseas customers) to reduce their postage costs by combining items, so my intention has been to delay making my copies of the new NWW ‘Dark Fat’ album available until I could offer it in combination with the next two new irr. releases and a new Readymades compilation. That was the plan, but the new albums are simply taking too long, and enough people have started making inquiries about when I’d get around to dishing out some Fat that I’ve decided it’s time to get on with it. I don’t want to rush the new material arbitrarily, and I don’t want to delay making DF available so long that everyone gets fed up and buys their copies somewhere else (which may have already happened to some extent). Fortunately, I do have a couple other things to offer right now, so I’ll just be grouping everything in two smaller batches instead of all together in one.

—————————————————————————-

Nurse With Wound - Dark Fat cvr SM DARK FAT + DARK DRIPPINGS

All lot of you probably already know about the most recent Nurse With Wound 2 CD album ‘Dark Fat’, so I won’t go into too much detail about it. The album was built out of the archive of live recordings I’ve been making since the current version of NWW live activity began in 2005, but it is by no means a straightforward live document: all of the sources have been layered and manipulated to create entirely new works. I played a large role in constructing the album, as well as cleaning up all the source material, fitting all the pieces together and mastering the final result. The outcome is really rather nice, if I do say so myself, and is spectacularly packaged with new Babs Santini collages. My own stash of copies to sell is limited to 35, and, as a consequence of being the only one based in the States, I was last in line to receive them, so I’ve put together a little bonus in hopes of enticing people of buying their copies from me (although, as I mentioned before, I may have missed the boat on that as a result of delaying things for so long).

Dark Drippings coverDark Drippings bcover This extra enticement is called ‘Dark Drippings’ (the Brits out there should catch the meaning), an hour-long additional disc I’ve assembled out of ‘Dark Fat’ trimmings and alternates. I’ve created some artwork for it that closely mimics Bab’s DF cover art, while also being a bit saucier in nature (<nudge nudge> Getit? Hanh? Getit? <snort!>). A copy of ‘Dark Drippings’ is bundled with each of the 35 copies of ‘Dark Fat’ that I have for sale. This does mean that the price is a little higher, since another motive behind it was to make a little more return from the few copies I have to sell. Apologies to those you don’t want the extra disc: all my copies are being bundled and priced this way.

Here are the liner notes to provide a bit more information: “This disc is a collection of raw sources, outtakes and alternate versions from the Nurse With Wound ‘Dark Fat’ double CD. The project underwent several significant changes over the course of a year-and-a-half: first being intended as part of a box set, and then a single disc on its own, and then a single disc with a limited bonus disc of outtakes, and finally a fully-realised double disc set. Around half of the material contained here represents that initial ‘outtake’ version of the second disc, minus those sections that carried over to the released version. In keeping with the original guiding concept behind it, the additional content is either: 1) an unmodified extract of the live recordings that were altered & layered to create the tracks on ‘Dark Fat’ (such as track 5, which is an excerpt of the Scribble Seven performance at St. Peter’s Arts Centre in 2006), 2) an alternate source with distinct audio character (such as track 10, which is the direct-from-the-board version of an extract from the 2008 London Fields Lido ‘swimming pool’ concert, rather than the underwater recording used on ‘DF’), or 3) an outtake from one of the concerts that I felt was unique, or at least unusual, but would never fit in anywhere except a bits-and-bobs collection like this (such as my stirring interpretation of ‘The Old Man Of The Mountain’ on track 6, taken from our second appearance at the AvantGarde Festival in 2009, and which was the only of the three attempted performances of the song that wasn’t completely awful). As with ‘Dark Fat’ itself, piquant moments from soundchecks and wacky extracts from NWW’s solitary attempt at a reheasal (just prior to the show at Koko in 2011) have been liberally sprinkled throughout. Two tracks I’d created for the Nine Day Antler Society using NWW soundcheck sources (’A Subsidence In Possibilities Precipitated By The Peroration Of A South-Facing Markhor’ {July 2014} and ‘1959, The Observatory’ {November 2014}) have also been included.”

Dark Drippings is very simply packaged in the style of the NWW bonus discs included with ‘Soundpooling’, ‘The Man With The Woman Face’, and the ‘Shipwreck Radio’ volumes: a fully-printed CDR in a plastic sleeve with a 2-sided, 4 panel fold-out insert. The price for the DF/DD 3 disc set is $30 + postage (7 oz. @ $3 Media Mail (US) / $13.50 international). Not wanting to snub those of you who have already bought ‘Dark Fat’ from a different source (and also hoping to squeeze some additional and much-needed funds from this thing), I’m also making 50 copies of ‘Dark Drippings’ available individually for $12 + postage (3 oz. @ $3 Media Mail /$13.50 international). All 85 copies will be individually numbered, the 35 DF/DD copies numbered in gold and the 50 individual copies numbered in silver. Since I have so few copies, I’m not listing this in the shop: just contact me at irrappext@gmail.com to arrange an order or to ask questions.

—————————————————————————-

Readymade Mondo Anthem cvr

READYMADE MONDO ANTHEM!

I also have a mere 5 copies of the new ‘Readymade Mondo Anthem!’ compilation cassette available for purchase. An 80-minute final hurrah from the now-defunct Readymade Tapes label, it features 2 exclusive tracks from irr. app. (ext.) plus fold-out cover & insert art from myself. This collection has actually been released by Black Horzions, as Readymades had already disintegrated before the project was fully finalised. 2 tracks each from At Jennie Richie, Vertonen, Balkh, Six Heads and Crank Sturgeon are also included, with everything wrapped up in Black Horizons’ typically stunning silver-on-black printed inserts. Copies are $10 + postage (5 oz. @ $3 Media Mail (US) / $13.50 international). Once again, since copies are so scarce I’m not going to list this item in the shop; instead, inquire at irrappext@gmail.com. Keep in mind I only have 5 copies of this item.

 

—————————————————————————-

mini-print set FULL sm MINI PRINT SET

Lastly, I’ve created some small prints of 28 of my art pieces: 12 paintings, 8 brush & ink drawings, and 8 charcoal drawings. The images are printed on heavy 110# white paper, image sizes approximately 7 3/4″ x 7 3/4″ and the overall sizes being around 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. Except for the charcoal pieces, everything is full colour. To be honest, I’m not sure if this project was a good idea, and I’m a bit stumped as to how best to offer them up for sale. I’ve come up with a few different options, as follows:

individual prints are available for $5 + postage (4 oz. @ $3 First Class (US) / $13.50 international)

full set of all 8 charcoal images or 8 brush & ink images = $35 + postage (8 oz. @ $3.50 First Class (US) / $13.50 international)

full set of all 12 painted images = $50 + postage (11 oz. @ $4 First Class (US) / $22.50 international)

mix and match any 5 prints = $22 (7 oz. @ $3.50 First Class (US) / $13.50 international)

full set of 28 images = $100 (20 oz. @ $13 Priority (US) / $22.50 international)

You can better see the image options, each listed by title and a print number, by clicking these thumbnails:

sale chart 1a - paintingssale chart 1b - paintingssale chart 2 - inksale chart 3 - charcoal

As with everything else listed in this newsletter, I am not going to create a shop listing for these items — at least, not until I find out if it’s worthwhile to keep these prints in stock. To order, contact me at irrappext@gmail.com and list the prints you want by both number and title (just to be absolutely sure). If it’s a long title, any coherent abbreviation will suffice. Be aware that print orders, or any combined order including prints, can not be shipped by Media Mail: First Class or Priority will have to be used.

Combined postage can be figured for any combinations of anything listed here or in the shop. And, as always, apologies to overseas customers for the obscene international postage rates!

More news about new irr. releases and various other treasures will hopefully follow later in the month.

Shop closed from March 26th to April 16th

A couple quick notes:

I’ll be heading overseas for a NWW event in a couple days and so the shop will be closed between March 26th and April 16th. I am not likely to have any regular (if any) internet access, so I will probably not be able to respond to any messages — and will definitely not be able to process any orders — until after I get back. I appreciate your patience.

Sirr(xt.) Heapp.ds cvr

Also: the new irr. + Six Heads collaborative cassette is now available through the Readymades Tapes site here. My own supply was very small and was essentially claimed before I even received any copies, so for anyone interested it’s best to grab one through Readymades while they’re still around.

 

See you in April!
