Thirty Three Thirty Three
Silver Vinyl / Limited Ed. 300
Release Date 6th June 2019
The first release from The Bug’s ‘PRESSURE’ label in 2019, is an absolute sound system crusher from JK Flesh (aka Justin Broadrick Godflesh/Jesu/Zonal etc…). Three tracks of the slowest, heaviest, dread techno you are ever likely to hear. Plus a remix from The Bug himself, in full doom riff mode.
Kevin Martin (aka The Bug) is quoted as saying “I’m as proud of dropping this epic 12”, as i was of being the person to release Godflesh ‘Love is a Dog from Hell’, many moons ago on my old label Pathological Records. This time around, Justin again redefines absolute heaviness, but in a club format, as he gets sociopathic with his homicidal riffs and deep space explorations. Absolute malevolence, a complete body slaughter. I virtually begged Justin to let me release ‘In Your Pit’ ! haha. And i’m very happy he agreed and additionally passed me two more tracks of utter dirt”
JK Flesh has previously released music via Speedy J’s Electric Deluxe imprint, Regis Downwards label and Vatican Shadow/Prurient’s Hospital Productions. He also recently released a split album with Goth-Trad, entitled ‘Knights of the Black Table’.
In 2018, PRESSURE unleashed the Bug collaboration with Burial as FLAME 1, released Miss Red’s outstanding ‘K.O.’ album, and detonated 12” club destroyers by NAZAMBA and G36. If this ‘E.P.’ is any indication of what 2019 holds for the label, this year will further intensify the label’s promotion of “Dub, Dancehall, Grime and Dirt” and absolute speaker shredding carnage.

Lathe cut version of Silver Apples, 'Oscillations 2019' backed with Andrew Weatherall's remix of 'The Edge of Wonder'.
Each copy features hand done artwork by Simeon and Andrew Weatherall and is hand signed by both artists.
This 12” vinyl is a lathe cut and limited to 100 copies only. This means that each one was individually cut on a lathe by an operator who had to listen to every cut as it was made to ensure quality control and was not mass produced in a normal vinyl pressing plant.
A Side: Oscillations 2019 (8:33) is Simeon’s new studio recorded, upgraded and augmented version of Silver Apples’ original 1968 classic track of the same name and reflects how he likes to play it live. Or in Simeon’s words, ‘Mixing it Up’.
AA Side: The Edge Of Wonder Remix (9:03) by Andrew Weatherall. Additional programming and engineering Nina Walsh. Mix executed at Facility 4.
Taken from the last Silver Apples album, ‘Clinging to a Dream’, and lovingly remixed.
Mastering: Graham Sutton @dustsuckersound.
Lathe Cutting: Phil Macy @3.45RPM
Artwork & Design: This is a very special sleeve and a rare opportunity to not only own a piece of artwork by Simeon Coxe, but also that of Andrew Weatherall. A perfect marriage of art and music by two maestros not likely to be repeated. Simeon's side of the sleeve shows one of his oscillators, hand drawn by him and then silk screened at his studio in Fairhope, Alabama, USA.
Andrew's side of the sleeve is a silk screened image based on an original lino-cut by him and inspired by the photography of Nina Walsh.
Silver Apples would like to thank Andrew Weatherall for his beautiful remix and artwork.

Jason Williamson – “Discourse chapters that dark silence in the vaults of the unskilled worker. The acceptance of all that is horrible and endured. Moments of connection between living vessels are rare but sometimes they do pass through the wire and lives are understood for a flicker of a second.”
“Eton Alive chronicles the scenes outside, mostly sleeping bags. Dulled reds, greens and cardboard head boards. Paper cups, bitten around the edges, full of copper.'
'Eton Alive' (previously unreleased)
Decadent Sprinter…a bizarre and yet comforting scene.You feel you understand and know what is happening, a connection to the movements. But in reality, you don’t exist to them & in their world you are just another adoring spectator. Recorded in the confines of industrial North Greenwich with producer Euan Hinshelwood in his analogue tape studio, Ice Baths present 4 new pieces. Stitched together with ambient, droning noise - the ghosts of their predecessors - a haunting reminder that beneath the sometimes sunnyexterior of the songs lies a constant anxiety in the songwriting and performance. “we spent so long on the album process, we really wanted to get back into the studio as soon as possible and write/record something new, without giving ourselves too much time to ruminate on external input…a reset of our senses & the perfect way to bridge the divide between albums.” Released on 1-sided 12” vinyl because the band wanted the EP to have a “seamless unbroken listening experience” and housed in a die-cut black outer sleeve & coloured inners on the impressive Blank Editions label.

London five-piece Housewives return for more anarchic genre-blending adventures on their second LP, Twilight Splendour; A synthesized collage written in Wetherspoons, cafes and anywhere away from their houseboats where they could find a permanent electrical supply.
Exploring the possibilities of electronic sound, this new LP marks a turning point for the band - who sold their guitars to buy midi equipment and swapped London rents for water habitation. Bringing to mind the digital meditations of legendary producer Oneohtrix Point Never, Twilight Splendour presents a love letter from an early AI to its owner, its concept-led songs strewn with “ecstatic messages of frustration and a desire to connect”.
The album occupies a dystopian world where real emotions have been eclipsed by complex coded simulations. From the dead-behind-the-eyes chanting on ‘Speak to Me’ to the heavily processed vocals on the sax-loaded ‘SmttnKttns’ – which dazzles with vocoder and pop shine – the band’s signature dark, psychedelic chaos and nihilism has been cast into an unnerving new technological light.
On opener, ‘Beneath the Glass’, Housewives set the scene for the alternate world occupied throughout Twilight Splendour: “Slip with me, under the glass and into the light / I only choose content that I know you’ll like”—beckoning the listener to retreat away from the mundanity of everyday life and into the warm comforting glow of digital anaesthesia.
With ‘Dormi’, Housewives create skin-crawling tension and atmosphere from pulsing rhythms, dub-infused bass, clock chimes and a haunting MIDI choir, while ‘Texu’s’ off-beat drumming forms the backdrop of the track’s mythology—an ancient alien making a mixtape of mediocre jazz for a lover.
Diverted creative energy is explored with the chaotic tension of ‘Sublimate pt. I’ which flows into the cathartic bliss of ‘Sublimate pt. II’ using maniacal vocal samples in a challenging take on a life not lived ‘never dream for more than boredom, now defines us’. Closing the record out on a new age note, ‘Hexadecimal Wave / Binary Rock’ swells with deep organ-led euphoria; a moment of respite on an album buzzing with industry.
Since forming five years ago, Housewives have drawn from such diverse scenes as post-punk, jazz, drone, electronic and avant-garde. 2013 saw the release of an eponymous debut EP via Brighton label Faux Discx, while their first-full length record, ‘Work’—recorded at a barn in a desolate corner in the south of France—arrived two years later.
2017 live album FF06116 marked the band’s first collaboration with experimental saxophonist Ben Vince. Following on from these early statements, Housewives are now set to unleash their game-changing new album—turning away from performance-based writing, the human, and facing the cold light of computers head on.Tracklisting:

“Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind dish out fistfuls of dirty rock’n’roll with a side order of voodoo and psych” – Uncut
“Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind ramps up the raunch with whisky-soured hellaciousness to spare" – Classic Rock
“With his latest incarnation a hefty dose of voodoo has been stirred into the pot of Jones’ own particular sonic gumbo, and it’s a heady brew.”
