this is an incredibly beautiful package. and the reworkings of 'In Menstrual Night' that are being used as a tribute album to Jhonn Balance, reflect a hollow emptiness that these artists must have felt at the loss of their friend. 'In Menstrual Night' has always been a very favorite Current '93'album, and the reworking over four sides is hypnotic and truly industrial.

"This is an edition of 1 numbered copy, signed by the author, inserted into the Beta-lactam Ring wooden-box auction edition of 'How He Loved The Moon'. Also included is a holograph manuscript of the 'Moonbird' text in the hand of someone who when he wrote it was David Tibet. All monies from the auction of this item will go to the John Bradburne Memorial Society for their work to the Mutemwa Leprosy Mission in Zimbabwe.
