Be/Non – Moi Ou Toi 7-Inch

Moi Ou Toi was originally released by Be/Non with the help of Gary Wilkerson from Earwaxx Records and his newly created record label Curved Groove in 2011. The record store closed soon after and the 7-Inch records sat sleeveless in a box for 4 years. Haymaker worked with Steady Co. in Minneapolis, MN to print special edition color RISOgraph sleeves to give the old 7-Inch recordings a new look and see the light of day again. Limited to 350 copies on translucent gold vinyl. Includes digital download with a bonus track. The release date for this 7-Inch is July 24, 2015 release with first availability at the Haymaker Records Summer Showcase.
