Auricle was originally a cassette only label, launched in 1986 alongside Audion Magazine. It was the successor to the Dark Star label and other brands. All original cassettes were duplicated on quality Chrome unbranded tape. Replication was by Colin Potter, at his ICR Studio, in York or Preston. Colin no longer does cassette duplication, so titles available on this page should be considered as the last remaining stocks, otherwise - deleted, but available until we run-out that is!

Notes: The "Late 1990s cassette only" items AMC 046 - 049 are 50 copy limited editions on cassette. These are all currently down to 10 or less copies. Many titles here are now also available as CDR releases. Recent duplications are replicated on branded tapes (of the same quality). These vary in price due to the quantity available.

Full chronology of our cassette releases...

Here's a listing of all 118 completed/planned releases on our various cassette labels: Pagan, Musiques Nouvelles,
Säbel, Syzygy, Dark Star, Auricle, etc., compiled back in 2010. Not all the variations are listed here, as some
information has been lost, and there were a few novelty editions that we never kept ourselves. Some of those you
may find documented at Discogs. Auricle items in
dark blue are unaltered reissues of the previous versions.
