When it comes to cult icons, you can’t look much further than Madlib and his Lord Quas project.
Following on from last year’s Yessir Whatever, Stones Throw have announced a limited 45-rpm picture disc, with album track Planned Attack covering the A-side, and unreleased Talkin’ Shit on the reverse. It’s not just the music that makes this a collectible however; the release comes in the form of a custom-shaped vinyl, half picture disc of the delectable yellow monster, half clear disc of its x-ray, with artwork by the inimitable Jeff Jank to boot.
As way of a prologue to the release, Stones Throw have offered the following:
On the crime-infested east side of Lost Gates CA, there is a vinyl pressing plant whose brochure says, “will do anything for a price.” Back in the ’70s & ’80s, they specialized in private press porno soundtracks, but these days Madlib is their only customer.
Head over to the Stones Throw site to pre-order the vinyl ahead of its March 3 release date.
