One way up is cassettes - The West Country, the other way up is Magic Brother - West Country. Either way up this is the cover of the next Onomatopoeia Records release which is catalogue number HUM11. It's a split 10" with two front covers (as seen here) AND two back covers in a unique double sleeve AND 2 versions of West Country (one by each band) AND 2 other tracks (one by each band) AND a special unlisted demo.

Sometime ago Sam Fullman and Nick Reeves co-wrote a song called The West Country. More recently they were playing this song in different version, with their own bands, respectively Magic Brother and cassettes. Onomatopoeia Records thought it would be fun and interesting to ask both bands to record their version, plus another song each, for a split EP release. The original demo is an unlisted bonus track.

This release is Magic Brother's debut and is cassettes first official release after a series of underground, lo-fi, self-released albums. Both bands come from Croydon, South London, and integral part of the local lo-fi scene. This record was very much a Made In Croydon.

Onomatopoeia Records is a one-man record label that is an independent as they come. Previous releases include: William D Drake (Cardiacs), They Came From The Stars I Saw Them, & Pinhead Nation.
