After over a years worth of delays Due Process Combine XXIII - XXXV is finally ready to go.
Here is a description of the record written by Thomas Dimuzio.

In 1994 Ron Lessard set up a Due Process mail collaboration with John Wiggins and Thomas Dimuzio. The project found Lessard sending off source recordings to Wiggins and Dimuzio, with Dimuzio and Wiggins in turn exchanging their recordings for further deconstruction. All sent back to Lessard who curated the release "Combine I - XVIII" for RRRecords. Option magazine wrote, "Ahh. Here's some serious art damage that careens from ambient industrial to the astringent squonks, bleeps and clamor of '60s avant-garde to the angst-ridden sonic shards and noisy electronic reflections of the post-industrial mess we find ourselves in now."Afterall, that was the year of the O.J. Simpson trial among other events. Fast forward to 2007 with "Combine XXI, XXII" to find Jason Lescalleet and Ron Lessard continuing the tradition for We Break More Records. Phage Tapes now presents the latest from Due Process and in all of its 150 gram vinyl glory. "Combine XXIII-XXXV" brings John Wiggins and Thomas Dimuzio back together in the fold where each sound mongrel completes an album side. Zanstones is among the sound sources at hand by contributing a number of squeezebox ditties (as well as the design of the striking cover art), plus live performances of Due Process all get squeezed through the sonic ringer and agitated, and with their own brand of detergents and stripping agents.

The record comes with full color center labels all packaged in full color double sided folded covers designed by Zan Stone.  The record was pressed in an edition of 500 copies.

The record is
18$ shipped in the US, 22$ for the rest of the world and 29$ for the rest of the world.  
the foreign rate is insane so hopefully i can get some distros to pick up the record.  currently only Freak Animal will have a few copies.

The shipping cost is high so if you want to combine shipping any additional CD would cost 8$, any additional 7" would cost 7$ and the GX/Lopez 10" would be an additional 10$.
