about

Recorded in November / December 2012 on a Tascam 4 track cassette. The Messel Pit Tapes are a collection of destroyed and mangled tape loops and manipulations designed to be listened to in its entirety.



"Pedals, guitar and reverb flesh out the fragments like computer images of flesh attached to unearthed bone. If society ended and these snippets were brought once again to life, future generations might wonder at our ability to create compelling melodies out of mangled sources; or they might try to glue them back together." Richard Allen. A Closer Listen.

"Awesome. I've been retuning & using it as a drone/ pedal to work on my guitar modes. Yngwie wouldn't approve." Gonzo Baker
