MSS FRNCE, EP 1 (édition pochette surprise)
MSS FRNCE [misfʁɑ̃s] est un quatuor Punk venant de Paris.
Le premier EP du groupe, sobrement intitulé 1, a été enregistré en 2016 par Romain Turzi puis copié sur 50 cassettes de couleurs aléatoires.
Entièrement designé et fabriqué à la main (à l'aide d'outils tels que ciseaux, ruban adhésif, agrafes et, bien évidemment, un photocopieur noir & blanc),
1 est un hommage graphique à la musique Punk, à son esthétique & ses codes graphiques mais également à la culture DIY en résultant.
Chaque pochette surprise contient une cassette colorée, un livret de 24 pages et un stickers rond de 7 centimètres de diamètre.
Le tout étant rassemblé dans un sachet noir opaque scellé, il est donc impossible de connaitre la couleur de sa cassette avant ouverture. 
1 est limité à 50 exemplaires.
