Project 016 is really special. A limited edition numbered T-Shirt, a tote bag and a fanzine by Memorial Device.

'This is the official band t-shirt of the greatest band that never existed, Airdrie’s Memorial Device, stars of David Keenan’s award-winning cult novel, This is Memorial Device (Faber & Faber). Featuring original archival photographs of Airdrie taken by Lucas Black back in the day and a classic quote from guitarist and founding member Big Patty - “…from now on music has to sound like a building coming down or forget it” - this is the ultimate post-punk t-shirt, in memoriam of every smalltown band that achieved nada in the fevered years of the late-70s/early-1980s, but who left behind them a legacy of belief, commitment and artistic bravery that continues to reverberate.'

PLUS... Limited edition exact repro re-print of Airdrie fanzine Go Ahead And Drop the Bomb’s special Memorial Device Memorial Edition w/every MD t-shirt, w/exclusive interviews with Memorial Device, Vanity, Cold Stars, Sufferage Tapes, Rod Stilvert, Whinhall Starvers, Clarkston Parks...


Buy the Chinese Moon cassette BUY NOW

Exact repro, fully authorised by the band, reissue of the legendary Chinese Moon cassette (Hitch In Time/Thrumming/Phasing), originally released on Robert Mulligan of Steel Teeth’s Sufferage Tapes imprint (home to Memorial Device, Glass Sarcophagus, The Traveller In Black, Kazoo Icing Compass…). Chinese Moon were an experimental four-piece from Airdrie who existed, briefly, in the early years of the 1980s and whose shows using mannequins and tape-loops have since passed into urban legend. Three tracks; live and in the studio. Limited edition. No re-press.
