It is with great joy and pride that I may finally announce the second Crown Tapes Batch for the summer of 2012!!!
CT 0.4 - Prince Stolas “The 26th Legion” Single Sided C30
Edition of 25. The first of many to come from the Crimes of the Crown collective. Crude synth work meets crude tape loops. Background music for the training and preparation of the damned. The beatings will continue, no matter how well you perform. Material repeats on both sides. Artwork by Si Clark.
CT 0.6 - Musta Oksennus “Last Days in Bunker” C20
Edition of 50. Finnish.Noisecore.Supremacy. Last recordings ever made in their old rehearsal space. Slipping in and out of potential mid tempo musicality, yet always maintaining that excellent noisecore chaos. Features excellent Industrial sounds as well. I’m beyond proud to be releasing this. Artwork by Si Clark.
CT 0.7 - Swarm Survival “Soporific Miasma” C20
Edition of 50. The newest member to join the No Coast Power Electronics family. An extremely strong follow up to the “Heavy Losses” debut on Fusty Cunt. “Soporific Miasma” has Dan demonstrating how the rushed and busy lives of most humans relate exactly the same to Locusts but on a much more complex level. Do we think we are actually better and stronger then a swarm of locusts, or are we apart of one all the same….struggling to survive. Recorded with the same mentality in mind. No coast, and no hope in sight. Artwork once again, by the incredibly talented Si Clark.

It is with great pleasure and honor that we at Crown Tapes announce that the copies of the new Winters in Osaka LP “Clandestine” have finally arrived at our headquarters! Mad shout outs to Anabolic Dimensions, Fusty Cunt, and Car Wash Tapes!
As always with Winters in Osaka you can never really guess what will be on the album until you actually hear it. Always shifting, always changing, always evolving and ALWAYS thriving. Featuring fellow no coaster’s Deterge, Battleship, Neil Jendon, as well as the extraordinary talent of the man behind Persistence in Mourning, and the utter madness of Mike Finklea (Striations, Nefarious Activities).
In terms of explaining the album itself, I can only quote the man himself, Adam Jennings.
"Each Winters in Osaka release is like a depiction of how my life is like at that moment……."

Hitting those drawing boards quite hard these days.
Crown Tapes is proud to announce a specialized release series that will be focusing on final statements as tape loops. NO two releases will ever be the same, as each one will hand made and constructed to fit, worship, and exonerate the themes behind the projects selected for this series. Each release will be limited to 50 only.
The first in this release in this series will be from Deterge (Fusty Cunt, PTM, Self Proclaimed Mad Man), hailing from the No Coast. This release will come as a 2xTape Loop, with the dying last words on one cassette and the accompanying sounds on the other. Each one will comes as two tape loops packaged within a hardback book (all of various sizes), and which will also be screwed shut eventually. Construction has begun on these beasts and we here at Crown Tapes are super stoked to get this bad boy finished. Keep on the lookout! NO WE ARE NOT TAKING RESERVATIONS OR PRE-ORDERS.
- Decaying Chandler Tape Loops are still available, a massive thank you to those that have purchased them! You can still order them for $6 a piece or $10 for 2 tape loops!

I am extremely pleased to announce the beginning of Crown Tapes. A label focusing mainly on analog formats such as cassettes, tape loops, and vinyl.
For the first batch, I have 20 blank decaying Chandler cassette tapes. These tape loops are not meant to be pristine and pretty. Instead the “decaying” Chandler produces a warped 78 record sound, sometimes with the tape slowing itself and picking back up at different times. Each cassette was handmade using recycled cassettes, and each piece of tape was handled differently, so as a result each one produces its own warped sound. No two cassettes are the same. Record your own loops and see what interesting results you get!
Prices: Decaying Chandler $6 each.
Get two cassettes for $10!
Please email at: firstname.lastname@example.org to place your orders.
FOR THE FUTURE:
-Clean 6 second cassette loops
-Customized cassette loops.
Crown Tapes Guarantee:
Yes, these specific tapes are meant to slowly fall apart. Some times they’ll last a year, some times they’ll last 4 weeks. The Crown Tapes Guarantee is that if your tape breaks within a month starting from the day I sent it in the mail, I will make you a new one free of charge. Not all tapes will fall under the CTG.
Also Crown Tapes is also pleased to announce its first release. Crown Tapes along with Fusty Cunt, Nefarious Activities, Anabolic Dimensions, will be releasing the Winters in Osaka LP “Clandestine”. Coming very soon!
Crown Tapes will also be starting up a tape loop release based series called Dying Last Words. Each release will be limited to 50, come with two tape loops, and have a handmade custom packaging as well. More info on the first release coming very soon!
