Hi Kids and Kidessess and Kidettes:
Some UpDates and UnDates. Another UpDate will follow on Friday 21 February with Davide Pepe’s film for our June 7 London Channelling, and another on Thursday 5 March, when the single from C93’s ForthComing album will be released, with Davide Pepe’s lovely accompanying film, for online streaming.
SIGH! SLIGHT DELAY WITH DAVID’S FIRST TWO SOLO ALBUMS, FERELITH & FONTELAUTUS
Unfortunately, there is a slight delay with the release of my first 2 solo albums, FERELITH & FONTELAUTUS. Although all the lathes have been cut, and all the black vinyl has been pressed, and all of these 12” vinyl are now with me, there have been problems with the screen printing, due to the fine detail required for both of the albums’ cover-artwork.
Our ScreenPrinter Patty has already printed 3 versions of the cover for FERELITH, but neither he nor I were entirely happy with the results. So he is now trying a different ScreenPrinting technique. We are hoping that this will work. If it doesn’t, we will need to rethink how we print the covers.
I do hope that these will be ready soon. Please know that I and Patty are giving it our full attention. I and he do want these to look perfect, as do you! I will keep you updated, and I hope to have some good news soon. The first image shows the new covers being prepared, and the second image one of the rejected CoverSpreads.
Both formats of FERELITH & FONTELAUTUS sold out immediately. However, if anyone does require a refund, please let us know and we will do so immediately, and offer the copy to one of those on the waiting list.
C93 THE LIGHT IS LEAVING US ALL MENTIONED BY DR. MARK TAUBERT IN THE GUARDIAN
Thank you to my friend Dr. Mark Taubert for mentioning Current 93 in his article “Cremate me to the sound of Disco Inferno! What song do you want to die to?” in The Guardian newspaper. Mark is a Clinical Director & Consultant Physician as well as an Honorary Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University. He also works in palliative care for the NHS in Cardiff. His expertise in this area is profound.
SOME DAMAGED C93 STOCK IS BENT IN SPACE
A small amount of C93 vinyl that we took to Lovely Wrocław in Poland remained unsold, so we had them sent back to us by air. BUT they must have been BENT IN SPACE as unfortunately, every single copy received either a bump to the corner, or a crease on the sleeve, or a cut at the top or bottom of the sleeve where the vinyl has cut through the sleeve—see photographs. So of course we wouldn’t be happy selling them as perfect copies. SO I have written BENT IN SPACE on every copy, initialled the text I have written, and also signed them. Inserted into each copy of the album is one of the lovely tickets for the Wrocław Channelling, which I have also signed.
There are between 3 to 17 copies of each of these titles: SOFT BLACK STARS, THE MOONS AT YOUR DOOR, THUNDER PERFECT MIND, THE STARS ON THEIR HORSIES, SWASTIKAS FOR NODDY, and INVOCATIONS OF ALMOST. We have ALSO knocked £7 off the price that they are normally sold for on our shop.
Please see photographs...
