The Last LP

€ 110.00

LABEL: ART METROPOLE
GENRE: Sound Art | FORMAT: Vinyl LP | CATALOG N. #1001 | YEAR. (1987)

Out of stock

this is the rare original The Last LP album issued on Art Metropole, which purported to be a documentary disc of the dying gasps of ethnic musical cultures from around the globe including Tibet, Syria, India, China Brazil, Finland and elsewhere, with more thousands of words of pseudo-scholarly supplimentary notes, but was, in fact, a series of multi-tracked recordings of Snow himself, who gave the joke away only in a single column of text in the disc's gatefold jacket, printed backwards and readable in a mirror. Title of the album refers to the disappearance of the 331/3 rpm microgroove vinyl/stylus format. This recording was issued in the last days of the LP and was conceived of then as an investigation into the effects (both negative and positive) of "Western" recording technology on the world's few remaining, at the time of recording, ancient pre-industrial cultures.
