The Special 12 Singles Series is a series of twelve 7 inch singles released by Gold Standard Laboratories in 2005, one for each month. Subscriptions were available for either January through June, July through December, or all 12 singles. Select tracks from this series were released as a digital album on iTunes on October 3, 2006, with an extended version of "Live Private Booths". Alavaz Relxib Cirdec is a pseudonym used by Cedric Bixler-Zavala (in fact, it's his name backwards). There were 500 copies of each single pressed by GSL, and are now fairly rare.[1]

The tracks by Omar Rodríguez-López and John Frusciante were recorded in Spring 2003.
