Title: I Will Know It Is Ripe
Format: One-Sided LP
Label: Gods Of Tundra

"First wax in a while from this long running Lexington weirdo. Headwarp electronics create a meditative minimal techno vibe that drifts along in a sea of alien water. The stars alined in a night of garbage and color and this LP was born. Rattle your head...the sound will still be there." - Gods Of Tundra.

Title: Persuasive Barrier
Format: LP
Label: Spectrum Spools
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Three Legged Race is the ongoing, ever-evolving project of Robert Beatty, a Lexington, Kentucky-based multi-media artist and founding member of noise band Hair Police. 2012 has been a busy year for Beatty, as hes provided his personal brand of visual art for countless excellent albums, and has also released new audio works (the outstanding Wrong Element 12" on Acoustic Division is essential). Persuasive Barrier is the debut full-length album from Three Legged Race, recorded over a period of five years. The album begins with "Traces of a Wet Crowd," creating a spacious and synthetic environment for the album to unfold upon with its rolling, cryptic vocal spray and high-frequency pulsing. "Traces" seamlessly collides with "Permethrin," a track which suspends the listener in juxtaposed clatter and wide open space. "Persuasive Barrier" plays like a lost Mort Garson theme accidentally found on Haruomi Hosonos soundtrack to the fictional film Cochin Moon. The lonely vocal passages and dream-like melody trails lead the listener down a very personal path, where the visual and audio aspects of Beattys world leave the artist exposed for your examination. Listen carefully, these moments are woven together in a complex way that warrants repeat visits to this special stasis. The flip of Barrier starts with the warm "Butter Colored Hallway," which hovers over the stereo field like a hot cloud, slowly moving and dripping micro details as it floats into "Locked Eyes," which is another wonderful and melodic passage. The album heads for the abstract and jagged ("Budgeting Air") before arriving at a complex bed of rhythms ("Permethrin II") where the album comes full circle. Persuasive Barrier sees Beatty organize many of his musical ideas and themes old and new into a fluid, flowing and comprehensive debut. Mastered by James Plotkin." -Spectrum Spools.

Title: Living Order/Mourning Order
Format: LP
Label: Tone Filth
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Robert Beatty, who may be better known as a member of Hair Police, Eyes & Arms of Smoke and a contributor to Burning Star Core, has been creating some of his most interesting material under the name Three Legged Race. Living Order/Mourning Order is a reissue of a pair of releases from 2006, Living Order primarily focusing on micro-tonal shifts and movement and Mourning Order setting aside most (but not all) of the tones for composition. A lesson in the beauty of modern electronics. Edition of 335 with 3-color screen print and artwork by Robert Beatty." -Tone Filth

Title: Rope Commercial Vol. 1
Format: Picture Disc LP
Label: Underwater Peoples
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
“Peoples are proud and excited to announce Three Legged Race’s “Rope Commercial, Vol. 1″ EP. The artist’s first release for UP and the first in a series of future releases, The EP serves as the follow up to Three Legged Race’s “Persuasive Barrier” LP in 2012.
Importantly, Rope Commercial Vol. 1 will be outfitted in a picture-disc of a classic Beatty vision. In a creamy neon-green urban landscape, the face of a humanoid figure is merged with a screen of a smartphone, its consciousness fused to the glass. Dangling from the phone is one leg outfitted in a woman’s heel, presumably its sole means of transport. These kind of pathetic cyborg figures in states of physical flux frequently appear in Beatty’s art. They function neatly as windows into Beatty’s music as well, with its electronically marred voices and barren sonic spaces. These figures are Beatty’s torpid avatars, in his music and art both, their humanism is strained by a confounding digital synergy.
Aptly, the picture-disc is a perfect setting for Beatty’s airbrush work, his favored rendering tool, and the general modus operandi of Beatty’s electronic music as Three Legged Race. In all, Beatty renews obsolete materials discarded from a voracious commercial culture, and employs them in strangely poignant contexts." - Underwater Peoples.

Title: Rope Commercial Vol. 2
Format: Cass
Label: Vitrine
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Vitrine inaugurates 2015 with the second volume in the Rope Commercial series courtesy Kentucky-based artist, Robert Beatty. Since the early 2000s, Beatty has been a stalwart of the American underground. Hes expanded his palette in recent years with solo forays as Three Legged Race. Rope Commercial Vol. 2 finds Beatty venturing further beyond the pale, delivering two sides of sinkhole electronics straight out of a dusted Igloo LP or an anomalous 8” flexi of Kansai post-punk. Wordless distance is traveled in miniature. Throughout the fulgent diversity of the cassettes twenty minutes, Beatty exemplifies the unhurried poise of a master. Sound for the end of ozone. Preparations for the empty closet. Limited to 150 copies.” - Vitrine.
