Notes

This is the sister album to Nurse With Wound's Thunder Perfect Mind.

Packaged in a jewel case with a photo-illustrated 24-page booklet that includes track titles, credits, and release information.

"All music written by Current 93, except ´When The May Rain Comes´, which was written by Sand and performed on their superb ´Golem´ album."

[Incidental info: although Edward Ka-Spel of The Legendary Pink Dots is mentioned in the credits, he didn't actually perform on this album!]

This album was mixed, engineered and produced at Topic Studios, London between September 1990 and February 1992.
This album was cut at Porky's.

        One year later, no trace of the Thunder Perfect Mind reissue. Does anyone have some news about it?

          Mine suffers from disc rot. seems a problem with more earlier World Serpant CD's. Seems to be eaten away in time. How about yours?

            This is one of my favorite albums of all time. The terms "ambient" and "industrial," however, are probably misleading. The only connection to so-called industrial music is the work a lot of these artists produced much earlier in their careers—David Tibet was part of 23 Skidoo, Psychic TV, and Whitehouse, and Steven Stapleton is the man behind Nurse With Wound. What I love about Current 93, though, is how different each one of their albums is from any of their others. "Thunder Perfect Mind" combines old English ballads, folk music, apocalyptic musings, biblical references, and odd literary influences to create a unique and beautiful work. It's not like anything else I've ever heard. To be honest, I didn't like it at first, but it grew with me, and now I think it's absolutely brilliant. I'm always hesitant to recommend Current 93, since their music doesn't exactly appeal to everyone, but if you're curious, this album is a good place to start.
