A Happy ChristMass and New Year to you all from me, C93, and the Nodding Gods.
Whilst working on the imminent—or as imminent as any C93 release ever is—C93 album, HER GHOST SINGS SPHERES, we are OverMoon to announce that we have also started work on the forthcoming triple album by C93, on which I and we and she and he have been working for over two years. MoreSignsSoon / UnderTheSpheresOfTheMoon.
I have 8 copies of this 3LP album left. They are £93 each, with postage extra. I will be putting them up on the online shop in the next few days so if you are interested in acquiring one, please keep checking the shop. Please note: these will only be sold to people who have not already bought a copy. We reserve the right to cancel any order—and refund the payment—if we consider that the purchaser either already has a copy or is buying it on behalf of someone who already has a copy. Orders are also limited to ONE per purchase.
Its original listing read:
The album consists of 3 one-sided black vinyl 12” records; all 3 records have no music on the black reverse. The first 2 records, which are white-label test-pressings, have, respectively, track 1 and track 2 from the standard album on their A side: so record one has The Moons At Your Door on side 1, and record 2 has There Is A GraveYard That Dwells In Man on side 1. The 3rd record is a one-sided lathe-cut record, mastered and cut by The Bricoleur, and has on one side the third track from the album, Mass By Boy, which only appears on this edition of the album.
Each blank side of each 12” record has a different decorative image silk-screened in white and luminous ink on that blank reverse. This design is different on each of the 3 records. The blank side does NOT have a white label on it.
The text on the white-labels on side 1 of the test-pressings are hand-written by David.
The playable side of the lathe-cut record has David’s thumb-print in silver.
The 6-panel fold-out card poster cover is printed in luminous ink on black card.
The edition comes with a screen-printed insert.
The entire item is placed inside a clear sealable bag, screen-printed to the front and back in silver ink.
93 copies, signed and numbered by David, are available.
GOLD VINYL EDITIONS OF HONEYSUCKLE ÆONS AND BAALSTORM, SING OMEGA
My lovely friends at Cargo will reissue, on February 3, 2017, the C93 Coptic Cat releases, HONEYSUCKLE ÆONS and BAALSTORM, SING OMEGA on gold vinyl. They are limited to 500 copies each, and are housed and homed in the same sleeves as before, with the same inserts. They are now available for pre-order below:
➜ HONEYSUCKLE ÆONS
➜ BAALSTORM, SING OMEGA
My very dear friend Bill Fay has decided for personal, and hence private, reasons to sell his own copies of his albums.
He has asked me to sell them on eBay on his behalf, which I will do in early 2017. I will announce in an update when the first item is put up on eBay.
The first to be offered will be the stereo edition of his perfect, and classic, debut album (which was also released in mono) on Deram, BILL FAY. Bill has written on the sleeve of the album “I’m parting, for personal reasons, with my own copy from back then, of ‘Bill Fay’—very best wishes and thanks, Bill Fay.” Bill will also enclose a brief note, written to the purchaser in her/his name, with the album.
This will be followed by his own copy of TIME OF THE LAST PERSECUTION, and then by Bill’s promotional copy of the USA release of the Deram 7" single “Some Good Advice/Screams in the Ears”, and then his own copies of other vinyl albums of, or featuring, his own work. All these items will be similarly inscribed, and be accompanied by a similar letter addressed to the purchaser.
Please note that I am not able to pass on messages to Bill. Also, please note that the photographs I have used, to illustrate this update, of Bill’s albums and singles shown here are my own copies. When the items are put up on eBay, the photos will be of Bill’s copies with his inscription and his signature on the sleeve.
DAVID TIBET RECOMMENDS, AS ALWAYS, ANOTHER WONDERFUL BLADUD FLIES! RELEASE
I am always OverMoon when another WonderFull release sparks out from my Perfect Friends at Bladud Flies! Here is another Lovely record from them—to be Loved then, now, and always. I attach their press release below! BuyBuyBuy and SitInTheSky!
BF! Presents... Abhorrent Jukebox - Racah, live at Last Offices
Racah is an on-going collaboration between South England-based sound artists RSPTN (f.k.a. Rasputin) and The Bricoleur. Summoning / Edge Lands is the 6th entry into the Bladud Flies! Abhorrent Jukebox 7" series. Selected from over four hours of continuous music, these two short tracks are microcosmic distillations of the night-time recording session as a whole; downbeat, fugue state ambience occasionally boiling over into pulsating blasts of noise.
The claustrophobic Summoning takes some cues from dub with a distant bass line propelled by a slow lurching beat and spluttering space-age electronics, while Edge Lands is an even more disparate and dissonant affair. Murky, blown-out tones shift into pink noise as the childlike chimes of a carillon lullaby echo sinisterly in the background.
The 7" lathe comes housed in a beautiful screen-printed sleeve with yellow paper inner. A particularly elegant touch is the BF! logo and catalog number that has been engraved on side A.
