Release Date 24th May 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.
