SWIM09/DORKTHRONE/GHOST VALLEY – SPLIT LP

At long last! Long delayed split LP co – released with the mighty Hit Time label (now sadly defunct) – Two sides o burning love, 15 minutes each. Side A (Dorkthrone) is a relentless swirling dictaphone/guitar jam spiralling patterns of anti-matter into yr noggin. On the flipside is a sweltering Ghost Valley improvisation, recorded under a bridge and with extra special guest ‘K’ blasting out some bad-ass clarinet. Super duper daddy-o!
Awesome artwork provided by Christopher Guest
sample coming soon
12″ vinyl, 200 numbered copies

SWIM08/GHOST VALLEY – RETURN TO GHOST VALLEY

SWIM07/BAH TSAH JENNY TROTH – UNTITLED TAPE

SWIM03/DORKTHRONE NO. 2

C30. Blue, white & lilac covers. 

SWIM02/DORKTHRONE NO.1

This being the first and most crudely recorded Dorkthrone tape and recorded on junk equipment. The first side (blue) consists of a distorted drone and feedback which eventually breaks out and erupts into a fiery storm of lo fi crackle and hiss. Side 2 (pink) is a little softer with some slow moving feedback scree, finished off with some guitar drift found on an old cassette from who knows when.

C32, comes in pink or white.
