||Hard Format likes to celebrate designs large and small and aus(r)asten tends very much towards the latter. It’s a 3″ CD with a small booklet. The motif on the cover could never claim to be ‘emblazoned’, that would be an exaggeration, it’s a small stick figure dissolving into dust. On the reverse, the figure’s arms are gone. Inside, a slender tree trunk without arms (branches) thrusts upwards while its roots hang skeletal-like in mid-air. Everything is black against white. Google translates ausrasten as ‘go ballistic’ which plays against all the other signs nicely.
