C93 are OverMoon to announce they skip into London’s QueenCute O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday 13 October. It is an Utter Delight and an Utter Honour for me to announce that our special guest will be NURSE WITH WOUND who, I know, will need no introduction to you. C93 and NWW have been As Close As Waves, As Tight As Teeth, since 1983, and have always known themselves as SisterChannellers. NWW and C93 have, however, only played once before together on the same stage on the same night—at the London Forum concerts in 2010 to celebrate my 50th BirthDay and 25 years of C93. So this makes this event even more special and joyful for Steven and me and NWW and C93. We also imagine there will be more there at there, Amen.
Apart from the Stockholm Channelling, with the Perfect Alasdair Roberts, on April 21 at Nalen, the London Channelling is—for the moment—the only other confirmed C93 PickNick this year. More details will trickle out about the London PickNick soon.
Tickets for London go on sale Friday 19th January 2018 at 11am GMT and are available here, as well as from all the usual ticketing outlets.
As previously mentioned, C93 present their Virginous Channelling in Stockholm at the Lovely Nalen on Saturday 21 April, with Alasdair Roberts as Special Guest. The promoters tell us that, at the moment, around 100 tickets remain.
Tickets are available here.
The first pressing of the purple-vinyl repress of Thunder Perfect Mind sold out immediately. She is now being repressed on black vinyl, with different coloured labels. We hope she will be released in April. As soon as we have received stock, we will add her to our shop.
We will also release a black vinyl 2LP Test-Pressing edition of Thunder Perfect Mind, with an extra 12” lathe-cut record which contains two previously-unreleased out-takes from Thunder Perfect Mind and a previously-unreleased live version of a song from the album. There will be 93 signed and numbered copies. More details soon.
We hope to announce details of an elaborate 2LP lathe-cut reissue of Nature Unveiled, my first and last album, soon. This 2LP black-vinyl lathe is cut, as always, by The Bricoleur at Bladud Flies!. The 2LP comes in a silk-screened cover, with silk-screened designs on the reverse side of each record. The artwork on the album is hand-finished by David. There will be 93 signed and numbered copies. More details soon.
I have recorded, and destroyed, and re-recorded, and re-destroyed, this album several times now. I am still re-re-recording it and, for all I may know, will re-re-destroy it and start again. It will emerge one day. If anyone wishes to cancel their order for either edition of this sold-out release, please let us know and we will refund you immediately. We do have people on a waiting-list wishing to obtain a copy, when it is released, so any cancelled orders will be reallocated to those on the waiting-list.
I have been working for some time on a 3LP set of my favourite sangs and sings and songs and sungs of, and by, C93. I hope this will be available in time for the Stockholm Nalen PickNick. It will only be available at C93 Channellings and from our online shop. More details soon.
To celebrate last year's SisterBrother Channellings in Berlin, C93 and HYPNOPAZŪZU commissioned from the soaring Bladud Flies!, a CURRENT 93 / HYPNOPAZŪZU 12” Lathe cut by The Bricoleur and with the labels engraved by Lauren Winton of Bladud Flies! with a silkscreened cover and one-sided silkscreened black and silver ink insert. Limited to 200 copies, Side 1 features a previously unreleased version, with different vocals, of “SunFlower” from C93’s HoneySuckle Æons album, and side 2 features a magical new remix by Youth of HYPNOPAZŪZU’s “Christmas With The Channellers” from her Create Christ, Sailor Boy album. This record was briefly available from DavidTibet.com, but sold out immediately.
A small number of copies are now available from House of Mythology.
Our work is… not yet done. But it is nearly finished, and we still expect this wonderful title to be published on my BirthDay, March 5 2018. Please remember that neither the signed hardback nor the paperback are available, from DavidTibet.com, and the signed hardback will only be available from Strange Attractor, and not in shops. The signed hardback edition comes with a beautiful Studies of Death tote-bag, only available with this hardback edition, so Stenbock can be on our Shoulders as well as in our Hearts.
Pre-orders are available for both the hardback and the paperback from Strange Attractor here.
I add the publisher’s SweetSong below.
With an extensive biographical introduction by David Tibet, a foreword by decadent scholar Timothy D'Arch Smith, author of the ground-breaking Love in Earnest which first properly introduced David to Stenbock’s work so many years ago, and an extensive bibliography, this remarkable volume offers fourteen stories, including all of those in his legendary collections Studies of Death and The Child of the Soul, over thirty poems and one proem—several previously unpublished—and one essay by this complex and intriguing figure. Also included in the book are illustrations of his rare first editions, and a previously unpublished photograph of Stenbock himself. Available here for pre-order now in a hardback edition, signed by David, as well as in a trade paperback standard editions. To be shipped by 5 March 2018.
