Gaika - The Spectacular Empire II (10")

Ships In 3-4 Business Days

Limited to 500 copies. No repress.

“A mysterious motorcyclist with a valuable cargo makes his way from the another time towards a near future cityscape devastated by war. He travels at the behest of an unrequited love. Along the way he encounters a litany of symbolic and magical characters, each with a parable he must understand in order to reach his destination.” This is the entry point into a philosophical fantasy of GAIKA’s making. Fundamentally a situationist work The Spectacular Empire is multi-format in nature and is designed to be a powerfully participatory ‘real fiction’. Through the motorcycle outlaw and the classic Romeo & Juliet coded romance arc that is set in this universe and directly influenced by the music, The Spectacular Empire will explore themes of love and loss, wealth, labour, capital, automation, technology, rebellion, sex and above all hope for tomorrow's world. This set of 10"s offers the engaged listener a physical entry point to The Spectacular Empire and GAIKA's world and vision.

Online orders are processed within *3-4 business days or *7-9 business days depending on availability.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our shipping and processing times have been extended. Please note, we are still shipping and attending to customer service inquiries as per usual. Delays in supply chain, shorter fulfillment schedules, as well as extended processing from USPS have forced these delays for the time being. Thank you for your patience and business as we navigate these difficult times!

Order processing time is separate from shipping time requested. 


We try and offer as many upcoming projects available for pre-order when the releases have moved into production. However, due to the nature of manufacturing and production, pre-order dates may change. If your pre-ordered items are holding your package from arriving please email us with a request to ship the in-stock items and pre-orders when they become available. 

If your order contains pre-order items we will hold the package until all titles are available to ship. Please specify in the comments section of the checkout if you would like to:  a) hold your entire order until it can be entirely fulfilled or, b) have the in-stock items shipped immediately and the pre-ordered items ship when available. Please note that option B may require additional shipping charges as multiple packages will be shipped.
