purge in conversation — and goddess knows there’s plenty of that — is ‘purge’ and purge when purge is written is ‘purge.xxx’. whaahh-psssh!

QUANTITY & QUALITY
purge.xxx records are produced in limited quantities to a standard without parallel in the market of today, yesterday, tomorrow. this isn’t in the interests of scarcity: PR is a joke and surplus is sin and space evades us

POSTAGE
we don’t re-press and we have neither the resources nor interest to compensate for the great mysteries of courier services, so we have to ship tracked & signed. this is why some of those costs look high and higher still: until 2021 we straddled the line between the uk and the eu but this is obviously no longer possible. all of our operations will thus be moving to the eu over the course of the year. for this reason eu shipping has gone down and uk shipping has gone up. no other way. our payments system will soon switch entirely from £ to €. it’s also worth clarifying that not only do we not make money from shipping: we invariably lose money on it, if you’re considering packaging and TIME (we don’t). we charge the absolute minimum we can, appreciating how prohibitive these costs can be. (if you have a bulk order and the total seems wrong do get in touch)

MATERIALS
we are in the process of phasing out the use of PVC in our packaging because however world-beating it is also evil. all other materials used both papers and plastics are recycled blahblah

DOWNLOADS
no

SHOPPING
all shopping is evil but everyone occasionally deserves a treat. we only sell in real life at the greatest shops in the world: Cafe Oto (London, BRX), Materia Prima (Porto, Portugal), Discos Paradiso (Barcelona, Catalonia), Substance Records (Vienna, Austria), Seance Centre (Toronto, Canada), Tobira Records (Kasai, Japan), Digital Regress (Oakland, USA). you can help support your local record store and us and yourself by requesting they stock our titles

BANDCAMP
you can also find us on bandcamp at: purgexxx.bandcamp.com


TWITTER
we think twitter is hilarious and everyone and everything on it is useless. we never think about it, look at it, and only post when we have something to sell. follow us at: twitter.com/purgetwit

INSTAGRAM
instagram is death but with all of the mystique stripped away and just the anxiety and the void [which means that it’s even more useless than twitter!!] … SIGN OUT SWITCH OFF AND RECOVER YOUR FANTASIES

WEBSITE
it is shameful even to have a website

INVESTMENT
purge.xxx records are extremely collectable and make excellent low-cost investment GIFTS if you can’t appreciate good things


THE BRITISH LIBRARY
the pre-vinyl archive of purge.xxx was purchased by the British Library in 2019; these releases are not available online and will never be reissued for sale and can probably only be heard there

the Liberated Film Club was our semi-regular events arm finished by the plague of 2020/21: liberatedfilm.club
