Andrew Liles Ear Wax
Andrew Liles of Nurse With Wound and Andrew Liles has released a way cylinder of his latest tune. This is an authentic wax cylinder especially lathe cut and surely the future of limited edition releases.
Didn't realise they still made this babies but seems like there's a gfew places, out there on the periphery, looking in and tutting. Great stuff.
The cylinder is (apparently) playable on the Edison 'Home' & 'Fireside'. They will play on any non-Edison machine and on any Edison machine that is equipped with a Model 'B', Model 'C', Model 'K' or Model 'O' reproducer. Edison Amberolas usually will not play them but I guess we all knew that. I blame the Tories.
In case you don't know what you're looking for in Dixons, the Edison Fireside model looks like the picture on the left here; a fabulous beast, one faintly redolent of the aquatic dream-forms on Andrew Liles site. You can see what drew him towards this project and I'm hoping someone I know buys one so I can see it in action.
