DIY Tape put together for UK tour undertaken in February and March 2017.

Two 15 minute tracks, both recorded in 2016 on Sillwood Road and edited and mixed in 2017. Track one is a no-input mixer feedback system with tapes and other sounds pushed through it. Kinda noisy. Track two is an electric guitar in bad shape, played in various ways.
