Clippings of damaged cloth included with the double lp.


Over a year in the making, Patina Pooling was a trans-Atlantic collaboration between :zoviet*france: and Fossil Aerosol.


Released in the fall of 2014, the album was issued as a limited edition (350) double vinyl lp, packaged in single sheet of oxidized, folded steel that was laser-etched “ZFAMP” in the upper right hand corner. The package includes fragments of cast-off cardboard box fragment (used to protect the albums inside). Attached to one of these is a small sample of synthetic fabric (damaged by smoke, water and ultraviolet light), which was collected from a burnt-out warehouse in the American Midwest in 1987. A two-sided printed insert carries all song title and publishing information.


Outtakes from the Patina Pooling sessions have been posted on Soundcloud, as well as The Wire magazine website.
