about

LP edition of 2012's tape Dies Irae. Re-mastered for vinyl and with new artwork by Belgium artist, Elzo Durt.

Gonzo is the ''why so serious?'' monicker of musician, dj and discrepant headhoncho, Gonçalo F Cardoso. Since starting the label back in 2010 Gonzo has released a series of limited collage tapes on the label, Dies Irae being the very first one back in 2012. He now decides to give it the vinyl treatment with specially commissioned artwork from Belgium artist, Elzo Durt.

Dies Irae (aka latin hymn sung in a mass for the dead) explores the themes of religion, sects, cults and judgement day. It unapologetically stitches together field recordings, sound generators, random loops and 'unfinished' compositions to accompany weird spoken word moments or uncorrectable views and opinions.
It kick started the self penned Gonzo collage style and wether you like or not he's been at it ever since.
Featuring spiritual leaders, enlightened gurus, cult leaders and good old fashion lunatics.
Guest appearances by Jim Jones, David Koresh and Harold Camping among others. Iain Chambers plays guitars when you hear one.

What the press said in 2012:

''Gonzo has created one of the best tapes I’ve ever heard, bar none, with Dies Irae. Never to these ears, at least on a cassette, has a collage-style collection of samples and other assorted sounds/noises/atmospheric devices come together so convincingly, as if each element was created strictly to serve the purposes of the end product.'' Tiny Mixtapes

''At times, this feels like a homage to the fanatical dedication of the source material, at others a lighthearted lampoon. Hard to tell which, but without reservation, some of the most impressive depth I've heard in collage work in ages.'' Guide Me Little Tapes
