I'd imagine, too, that plenty of folks who heard a tiny bit of it in the soundtrack (though not included on the soundtrack audio release) of the horror flick, "Sinister," were desperate to find out what it is and get it. I have a copy, but currently ... See full review

Thanks, and good idea. I was able to get a deck from Drag City, and I'm glad for that because I enjoyed seeing whose faces Chasny, I suppose, chose to grace the face/court cards of each suit, his inspiring poets, mystics, and such. I also just noticed ... See full review

Fantastic! I have a ticket to the Current 93 show scheduled on 04/05/20 at the Warsaw in NYC (Brooklyn). It's about a two thousand mile trip for me to get there, but I'm going to make the arrangements to do so, and then hope that the show doesn't get ... See full review

Considering all of the exclamations and exclamation marks , I'll assume you are being sarcastic and taking a hit at me. I couldn't give less of a fuck about that, but for anyone else who reads your response, I'd like to stress that the center label isn't ... See full review

I don't know if this off-center "center label" is a defect or intentional, but now that I've listened to the record (the very Carter Tutti Void good record), I see and hear that the needles glides over the un-centered label okay and makes only another ... See full review

Anybody else get this on vinyl and find that the center label on the vinyl disk is well off center? I got this today, and the circular center label for side one is about an inch off, and the edge is layered over the last bit of the third piece on side ... See full review

Just knowing that Stapleton is out there somewhere doing his thing makes being alive on the planet a more tolerable situation. Liles has been very busy, with his 50 hour birthday hits project, not to mention his great involvement in bringing out a solid ... See full review

Hello parasite. Did you decide to see the show in October?
posted a comment on Current 93 - The Stars On Their Horsies. about 1 year ago
If you can go, wow, by all and any means. To see Stapleton and Tibet together again, sharing a Nurse/C93 show? It makes me smile beyond the boundaries of my face to even think of it, though I've no hope of personally attending.

Has anyone heard both the CD and the Vinyl versions? I have the CD. It's amazingly well constructed, very impressive, but I wouldn't call it an easy thing to listen to, mainly based on what I'm hearing described by the voices. Maldoror may be ded ded ... See full review

It's silly to fault Ulver for taking this meta-pop path and having every album be a complete departure, often a good imitatioon of some style that was or is, but damn. Frankie Goes to Holiywood? Okay. Sad to say, I personally would be no better off, ... See full review

It's been nearly three years since you've asked the question, but what the hell, mine has no warping, tone arm looks motionless, except, of course for the almost imperceptible move toward the inner last groove. U.S. purchase.

Why Why Why did this never get a CD release, but rather the a comp of League of Gentlemen. It's just not the same without kicking off with Indiscreet 1. Don't get me wrong... the God Save the King comp is very good, as is the CD release of Exposure, but ... See full review

Great stuff. Cashmore is a genius. Is that not Rose McDowell's voice on Dozen Winters of Loneliness? Tibet certainly, but there is a woman's voice both looped with the repetition of "loneliness loneliness loneliness..." as well as saying the same few ... See full review

'Tis true. Perfect visual/aural presentation of what may be a, if not the, best work by NWW. This, and the massive box set of Soliloquies for Lilith, wonderful. Forget the "best work" bit, too much "best work," and the madness just doesn't stop, nor ... See full review

It will come, and the remaster is done, has been done, but welcome to the world of C93 "it's only time." Running a year, a decade, behind is what one simply has to get used to. I pre-paid for a very limited Her Ghost Sings Spheres, which was at one ... See full review

I'm not putting his work down, and this may be a valid response to a point, but your examples seem a bit silly to me. Besides, this is a subjective bias on my part... for me deep drone recordings with dark spacey or hellish embellishments begin to sound ... See full review

Record Store Day release in the U.S., and Steven Stapleton and Andrew Liles (Nurse With Wound) are on board this release, which is surprisingly widely available, at least as of today.

I've learned that any projections for such re-releases are subject to change, or to be dropped altogether. The remaster is done. A test pressing with David and Cashmore's signatures was auctioned for some worthy cause. Still, I wouldn't hold my breath ... See full review

Great album. To have it on vinyl, one is either stuck with Plain Recordings, which is worse than horrible, or pay these inflated prices. ML RIP Sorry the world is such a dung heap.

Plain Recording: Stay far far away, and they have been licensed to do vinyl reissues for so many good albums. 4 Men with Beards, not as bad, but not good, and again, so many good records. Why?

It appears that 4 Men with Beards is the one licensed to do the new pressings... I was afraid it was Plain Records, who is even worse, but see the PL code going all the way back to '77 for some listings. Either way, it's too bad that the big companies ... See full review

It's odd to see here two titles, Palace Brothers and Days in the Wake, released by DC on CD at the same time, same album (I think). I've always thought of this as Days in the Wake, as that is the title on the CD package I purchased ages ago.

"psychedelic rock, stoner rock, doom metal,"... no mention of drone, so wondering if this is more riff oriented than the previous albums, or is the distorted down-tuned amp drone still the root on this one?
