Yeast Culture - Shit On A Shingle


As is obvious by holding, or even just looking at, any of Yeast Culture's albums, they take a very long time to produce. The sound is remarkable and unique, but the art and packaging seems so labor-intensive, it's no wonder the group has not released very much. But when they do, it's always worth the wait. This triple-cassette set was recorded in 1991 and released in 2013. The tapes come in two cedar shingles, everything screen-printed. The tapes themselves, the tape cases, the art book inside, all of it so complex that it's no wonder there was a decade+ gap between realizing the sound and making it available to the public. Here are sounds n' scans to tide you over until you hunt down a physical copy of your own. The husband and I have our YC art-objects on proud display in our home.

I'm loving all this yeast culture. Hadn't heard of them before. I know you don't much like to be asked, but is there any chance of a re-upload of their 'classic' IYS album that you posted a couple of years ago (to go with the source tapes)? I've tried to find it elsewhere, but trawling the internet for Yeast Culture just isn't a helpful activity unless you're a brewer/baker. Thanks a lot if you do get time/inclination. (Thanks for all the other YC recordings as well). O
