Nick Butcher: The Complicated Bicycle: Anniversary Edition - Hometapes [$20.00]

Inspired by a move to Chicago, Nick Butcher combined his two passions, making pictures and recording music; the end result was The Complicated Bicycle, a 24-page hand screened book filled with pictures of crudely drawn airplanes, bicycles and houses copied, cut up, rearranged and copied again. Accompanying this book is an original 8-track album with songs featuring dying keyboards, air organ, and guitar which were recorded to cassette tapes and primitive samplers, giving it an almost accidental feel. The Complicated Bicycle was first released in 2005, so this year marks its five-year anniversary. To celebrate, Butcher is releasing the original album and booklet along with a bonus disc entitled Automatic Music with 45-minutes of unreleased songs, sketches, textural experiments and source material from the original recording session. There is also a bonus 5"x7” screen print.
