Six tracks that mix the noise experimentation of Stéphane Récrosio with Sébastien Borgo’s field recordings and short waves in Sydney and Tasmania.

(Doubtfulsounds - DOUBT11) LP $18.00 (Out-of-stock)

Composed from field recordings made in French printing facilities, Offset is a sound document about the over-determined environment of a work place, a journey into the depth of the mechanical and industrial energy of rotary presses, and electroacoustic re-composition and manipulation. Both damaging and alienating by-product of the production process, the musical dimension of the recordings are marked by a hundred years of mechanical fantasies (as cultivated by the Futurists, industrial music, and techno). The first side explores rhythmic patterns of five mechanical cycles; the second focuses on two fluxes and continuous phenomena. Edition of 300.



(Doubtfulsounds - DOUBT07) LP $18.00 (Out-of-stock)

With not one but two band members spending time in mental hospitals since the release of the first Micro_Penis LP, and two others embarking on year-long meditative retreats in a Zen temple in the south of Italy, recording sessions for Tolvek (Alsatian for “moron”) were therefore delayed. This LP documents moments when inner demons had the upper hand over the mental health of K., S., H., and O., transformed each time into an outlet, and exorcised. With medication and therapeutic workshops with artist Anne Zimmerman, K. and S. sculpted creatures from vegetable peelings and stuff found in the hospital garbage bins — hybrids of sexual obsession and vegetable shapes. Zimmerman proposed to develop some of their work with rubber. Each copy of the LP comes with one of their “sexual rubber beasts.” Edition of 300. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2011



(Doubtfulsounds - DOUBT14) LP $12.00

For the third and final installment in Micro_penis’s Doubtful Sounds trilogy, it was collectively agreed upon that no band member could be chemically restrained. For a psychotic, as we all know from experience, can only ever be himself when freed from treatment, thus allowing the full expression of his otherwise suppressed insanity. Another self-imposed stipulation was that during each session, everyone would use a different instrument, be it acoustic or electronic, regardless of mastery. Et voilà — a broad range of dissimilar pieces, a violent rupture in playing modes and tones, the direct result of the huge interpersonal tension that was present. Includes postcard. Edition of 300.



(Doubtfulsounds - DOUBT03) LP $18.00 (Out-of-stock)

An underworld heap exported from Mulhouse, France. Sébastien Borgo (Sun Plexus 2, l’Autopsie a révélé que la mort était due à l’autopsie, Ogrob, French Doctors), Alexandre Kittel, François Heyer (Ptaz) and Claude Spendelauer (Doutbfulsounds) seem to be going for a name drop in the same breath as “mental deficiency.” Having escaped from the mental hospital of Rouffach in southern Alsace, they scream, they growl, and the strait jacket is never far away. Comparable to a modern variation of Cromagnon’s “Ritual Feast of the Libido.” For lovers of horror movies, art brut, cruelty. Includes sticker, two postcards. Cover is black paper silkscreened on both sides. Edition of 300. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2009.



(Doubtfulsounds - DOUBT04) 10-inch $13.00 (Out-of-stock)

Self-described by Stefan Neville as “dumb punk slop and some tape loop soup and a pretty love song.” One of the noisier Pumice records to date. Includes two postcards. Cover is black paper silkscreened by Cotoreick. Edition of 500.
