We Got Cactus Tour Lathe Cuts
The first week of October, 2013, Four bands from Tucson, Andrew Collberg, Acorn Bcorn, The Pork Torta, and Otherly Love, embarked on a 2 week tour of France. PIAPTK made them (and Golden Boots and Fur Family, whose members were touring with Andrew Collberg) some tour merch in the form of silkscreened 7" lathe cuts. Each one has a single color image with a fountain fill (multiple color gradient) making up the background. Every record is a little bit different.
There were 75 of each made (100 of Golden Boots' first single from their upcoming untitled album, Traveling Strange), and the bands took 50 to France. Therefore, there are only 25 of each available in the US.
Each record comes with a download of ALL 6 songs in the series.
A Note About Lathe Cuts and Their Pricing:
Please consider these more of a work of art in the form of a record than just another record in your collection. We know they are expensive and that art pieces like this are not of interest or in the budget of some people.
LATHE CUTS: Please understand that lathe cuts are NOT pressed records... they are made one at a time, in real time, using a DIY and experimental process. The volume and fidelity is somewhat lower than a pressed record. However, we test each one before it leaves, so they should all be totally listenable and sound pretty good considering the details of their birth. PRICING: Because of the high material cost and labor intensive nature of the discs themselves, we have to price these higher just in order to cover our costs and overhead. Not to mention the fact that we give a very generous percentage of every run to the artist for free, so the costs of those copies have to be absorbed by the sale price of our copies. Believe me, we are not getting rich. We will be lucky if we break even.
