Rickie Lee Jones drops off C93 dates

Rickie Lee Jones is no longer able to appear at the upcoming Current 93 shows. Both David Tibet and Rickie Lee want to point out this happened due to bad luck and unforeseen problems. Says David, "We remain good friends and, although sadly this time the energy was against us, we are both determined to reschedule our working together as soon as we can." The dates that C93 have scheduled will be the last C93 tour of Europe for some time.

Exclusive Art-Document for Organum

It can be located via the "Exclusives" page on the main page (top right-hand icon). David does not wish to provide any explanation or description: Rather he wishes it to "stand-alone" and that "it is what it is". It represents the culmination of several weeks of work by David and should be viewed in full-page mode for full effect (no scrolling).

We're Back!

We're sorry for the downtime but there was a disk failure, which ended up corrupting a ton of the database data. Unfortunately, the most recent backup that was salvagable goes back to August, so a ton of us have been feverishly trying to get old content in. While we worked hard and are continue to input old file, there are some things which are gone.  If you are aware of missing files and would like to contact us, please do!  Thanks.

Matmos Take It to the Supreme

Matmos are pleased to announce that on May 6th 2008 Matador Records will release the new album Supreme Balloon as a compact disc, two vinyl long playing records, and as a gallimaufry of digital files through iTunes and other online retailers of note. The album is a pretty wild departure from classical Matmos working methods: no kooky or abject objects were played percussively, no conceptual rubrics or philosophical syllabi are appended, and, hell, no microphones were used at any point in the creation of the record. Instead, "Supreme Balloon" is an ALL SYNTHESIZER ALBUM. Old synths, new synths, MAX patches, one-of-a-kind modular rigs, decrepit consumer electronics of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, boutique effects pedals, tabla drum machines from India: it's all there.
