    Anok Pe / Current 93 'Birth Canal Blues'

    £10.99

    One of the most immediately noticeable changes is the stripped back personnel that comprises Current 93 for this release. Instead of the huge and unwieldy collective of musicians used on Black Ships, this EP recalls Soft Black Stars or Sleep Has His House in its limited instrumental palette and group; this time out it's only Baby Dee on keyboards, Tibet on vocals and Andrew Liles inhabiting the usual Steven Stapleton role, producing and mixing.

    Hearing someone other than Maja Elliott tickling the ivories for Current 93 is an interesting change: Baby Dee's style is less impressionistic, more traditionally melodic, tracing beautifully symmetrical piano figures informed by popular music or church playing. In some sense this is appropriate, as Tibet's lyrics become increasingly focused upon Biblical prophecy. In another sense, it seems utterly at odds with the apocalyptic visions being related, creating an unorthodox hybrid of gentle pop and ferocious, unhinged teleological visions – brainwashed.

    Current 93 'Aleph At The Hallucinatory Mountain'

    £12.99 £4.99

    Behooving a sinner, Tibet's rarely been alone for his most personal explorations: From Antony Hegarty and Ben Chasny to sound artist Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson and Nurse with Wound's Steven Stapleton, he's amassed a revolving army to provide sounds worthy of such intimate and existential conflicts.

    Aleph is a charging, rock'n'roll appraisal of Tibet's central concern-- living with respect to himself and to God-- supported by one of the best casts yet. Stapleton, improvisational drummer Alex Neilson, Chavez's Matt Sweeney, and harpist Baby Dee return, along with Andrew W.K., Rickie Lee Jones, guitarists James Blackshaw and Keith Wood, and the artistically ambitious porn star Sasha Grey. Carefully orchestrated beneath Tibet's uncanny voice, they create not only Current 93's most rock-oriented album to date but also a fine, fitting crown for Tibet's prolific decade.

    A surprisingly tuneful, consistently compelling mix of industrial stomp and folk grace, Aleph offers both a career-spanning capitulation for newcomers and a bold push forward for zealots. - Pitchfork

    Coptic Cat

    Current 93 'Baalstorm, Sing, Omega'

    £10.99

    Gold vinyl album limited to 500 copies.

    The record is housed and homed in a black and white sleeve with artwork by David Tibet and contains a 2-sided black and white Insert with all the lyrics and photos of the C93 family. Current 93, who were As Cool As Llies and As Real As RainBows, are now As Perfect As Planets: Eliot Bates, Baby Dee, Andrew Liles, Lisa Pizzighella, Armen Ra and David Tibet.

    Only two of the album’s nine cuts approach any sort of Gnostic fury. The first “Baalstorm! Baalstorm! Baalstorm!” pursues eschatology in a subdued sort of way, its tension expressed in nervy, staccato piano flurries and whistling high organ tones.

    The second, album closer “I Dance Narcoleptic,” rampages more dramatically, in a flood of nightmare imagery and mad calliope tootles. Yet even this song ends in a benediction, a two minute silence giving way to the swell of ocean surf, and then a quiet voice (not Tibet) singing “Till the storm is through / and all of god’s promises echo through.” This song, and perhaps the album as a whole, moves through chaos to acceptance.

    There are endings here, both the mythological Revelations-style endings, and more personal ones. Tibet has always led his listeners through surreal, frightening spiritual landscapes, but with this one, he seems to have gotten through to a serene and unexpectedly beautiful other side. - Dusted

    Durtro Jnana is proud to re-release of one of Current 93's most ambitious and enduring projects: the Inmost Light trilogy.

    Originally issued in 1995 as "Hallucinatory Patripassianist Song," this set includes in their entirety the mini-albums Where The Long Shadows Fall, The Stars Are Marching Sadly Home, and the full-length All The Pretty Little Horses. The band at the time of these recordings included David Tibet, Steven Stapleton, Michael Cashmore and Joolie Wood with guests Nick Cave, Jhonn Balance (Coil), Andria Degens (Pantaleimon) and Shirley Collins contributing vocals.  

    This series was inspired by visionary painter Louis Wain and author Thomas Ligotti (to whom a track is dedicated), nursery sing-songs and Christian heresies, most notably Patripassianism. In Current 93's hands, the traditional lullaby of the album title sparks an explosive torrent of bittersweet childhood memories and apocalyptic prophecies. The musical setting for Tibet's narrative is exquisite -- kaleidoscopic compositions featuring 12-string guitar, piano, string arrangements, flutes, bells, massed drones, children's voices and ecstatic recitations.

    Together, the three movements make Inmost Light a powerful and extremely moving listening experience. The three discs have been newly remastered and are housed in a deluxe eight-panel digipack with a twenty-four-page full-color booklet of photos of the group as children, a complete set of lyrics and liner notes.

    We are OverMoon to announce the new album—their 93rd!—from Gnostic Cartoon SuperGroup CURRENT 93.

    THE MOONS AT YOUR DOOR consists of 2 long tracks, “The Moons At Your Door” and “There Is A GraveYard That Dwells In Man” and reveals, yet again, an unexpected sidereal shift in C93’s vision and voice.

    The vinyl edition of this album is packaged in a black gatefold sleeve, with the artwork on the outer and inner gatefold by David Tibet. The inside of the album is also printed in black. The record is pressed on opaque white vinyl. The artwork on the back of the LP sleeve differs to the artwork on the back of the CD sleeve.

    The CD edition of this album is packaged in a black gatefold digipak, again with artwork on all panels by David Tibet, and again with the inside of the digipak also printed in black. The artwork on the back of the CD sleeve differs to the artwork on the back of the LP This album presages the publication, in the first half of January 2016, of David Tibet’s anthology, also titled The Moons At Your Door, of whom this album is the sister.

    The 472-page anthology, published in hardback and paperback, collects some of the supernatural stories, fairy tales and hallucinatory prose, as well as Akkadian and Coptic texts translated by him, that have most influenced his work in Current 93 and elsewhere. The book is published by Strange Attractor http://strangeattractor.co.uk/shoppe/the-moons-at-your-door/. A second volume of David’s anthology will follow later in the year.
