PhonoStatic 27' cassette
(direct download of 11 ogg vorbis file available on above link)
Description. "Audio Anxiety." The present collection treats us to, among other things, an early two-track cut-up experiment by The Tape-beatles that brazenly rips off the Benny Goodman Orchestra; a snotty commentary about the then-current state of art by Weather Nouveau; representative pieces from the voluminous and adventuresome cassette deck stylings of X.Y. Zedd; and spooky soundbed meets headbending philosophy by Bob Gregory and Jason Gibbs. Cellist and electronic musician Fredrick Lonberg-Holm contributes the excellent "Bits", and along with all this is the consummate noise-art by such familiar names as Big City Orchestra, tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE, and The Haters; among others.
Contributors include. Bob Gregory and Jason Gibbs, Weather Nouveau, The Tape-beatles, Fredrick Lonberg-Holm, X.Y. Zedd, The Haters, tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE, Big City Orchestra, and John E.

PhotoStatic 25/26 Double Issue

Description. "Networking." This issue falls in one of yearly numbering deviations to which the series was prone, comprising massive double issue of over a hundred pages. Readers were also treated to the noteworthy augment of a series of 20 artist post cards interspersed throughout, a large-format photocopy poster, and a "stamp grab-bag" of postage stamps from around the world. Too many artists took part in this issue for me to justify singling any of them out, and so I leave the list at the end of this page to speak for itself. The editor is indebted to all their efforts, and grateful for their willingness to trust their expressions to my hands.

Project Overview: The Photostatic Retrograde Archive serves as an electronic repository for a complete collection of PhotoStatic Magazine, PhonoStatic Cassettes, Retrofuturism, and Psrf, (as well as related titles). Issues are posted as PDF or Ogg Vorbis files, at more or less regular intervals, in reverse chronological order to form a chronological mirror image of the original series. When the first issue, dating from 1983, is finally posted in several year's time, then this electronic archive will be complete.
