The Pataphysical Tape Club is a fictional radio programme that plays pataphysical sound recordings sent in by listeners. The host of the show (Felix Kubin himself) not only introduces these recordings but also a new method of finding lost objects at home, he sings an amoeba hymn and interviews a man who approaches women by the help of self-built musical boxes with scary noises. This 25 minute radio play was orginally conceived for the Audiotoop festival in Nijmegen, then edited to a version for WFMU.org and finally released on Peter Fengler's ongoing series BIG MAG. This series is made of beautifully packaged boxes each containing a split-LP, an art magazine, posters and stickers.
BIGMAG is a magazine containing a 12” vinyl picture-disc and print work. It is supposed to be a blueprint as an extension of the physical body of club DE PLAYER. It is a magazine with many original contributions from writers, musicians, artists and others who were on stage or will be on stage at DE PLAYER.
