    Computape D [Black] - 2 Tape Edition

    2 Tapes in a recycled VHS Box.

    It includes the following;

    Tape 1 - COMPUTAPE EP

    One copy of the 4 track COMPUTAPE EP by Le Cliché in a 3D Calculator button (black) cassette box.

    There is a choice of two cassettes brands, either a COMPUTAPE brand C15 or an Eagle brand reel-to-reel C15 (You can choose your tape at check-out). Keep in mind that these tapes are over 30 years old (but never before used) and they were originally designed for computer code, not music. So the sound quality isn't great. This should be viewed more as a collector's item. All of the tracks on this EP are also included on the second cassette (see description below) which is a Chrome tape, so you get great sound quality.

    Tape 2 'Dispose · Reject · Discard · Dismiss' Tape.

    One copy of the Le Cliché tape entitled ''Dispose · Reject · Discard · Dismiss' on Chrome cassette (various branded tapes, TDK, SONY, etc). This tape contains a copy of the tracks on the COMPUTAPE EP plus a series of unused, rejected and unreleased demos, ideas and outtakes from 2012 to 2015. This tape comes in a transparent box which has been painted gold, with calculator circuit boards mounted on the front (see photo).

    All cassettes are handmade, so no two are identical.

    Includes unlimited streaming of The COMPUTAPE EP via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
