With James Blackshaw emigrating to the U S of A, the spot of guitar player in Current 93 became vacant and who should take his place than former Current 93 guitar player Michael Cashmore. This new line up recently played at Off Festival in Katowice, Poland and the set was recorded by Hennessy Williams.
Thanks to the kindness of Hennessy and David Tibet, the whole set can be download for free from HERE
There’s a great setlist featuring a nice mix of classics, all played in a very different manner to the recorded versions. Oh, and Baby Dee covers a Shirley Temple song!
…and the award for best album name of all time goes to “Country Stash” coming from MV+EE on May 10th via Three Lobed Recordings and Blatant Obviousness. It’s a new studio album featuring contributions from the likes of Mick Flower, Andy Ramsay, Rongoose, Rafi Bookstaber, Paulie G & Jeremy Earl.
You know, the Rural Colours label keeps on putting out consistently good but ridiculously limited mini CDs of seriously experimental ambient music. The latest to hit our ears comes from Coldstream and while you can whistle through your arse if you think you can buy yourself a copy of the CD, like most Rural Colours releases it is also available as a free download.
It’s a really excellent, unearthly little beast so if you want 20 minutes of quality music then go HERE and if you don’t then fuck off to MTVs website.
Manchester psyche noise heads Gnod have a new tumblr page [no, I’d never heard of it before either but maybe I should have a nosey] and on it they’ve posted a shit load of old, hard to find releases for free download. so pop over to http://ingnodwetrust.tumblr.com/ and BINGE!
Clodagh Simonds (of Mellow Candle fame) has just announced a solstice single under her current recording name, Fovea Hex. It is free for the first 200 downloads. It is called “Hail Hope!” and has contributions from Michael Begg, Matt Waldron of irr. app. (ext) & Nurse With Wound, John Contreras of Current 93 and Colin Potter of Nurse With Wound. It is also rather damn lovely.
Now, as I did forewarn previously, we only use the free option of Podomatic which includes storage restrictions. This does mean, unfortunately, that we have now had to delete the first two podcasts off there. From now on, when one goes up, another must come down.
