Biography

London, United Kingdom (1982 – present)

Current 93 is an eclectic British music group, working since the early 1980s in experimental-based musical forms. The band was founded in London, UK in 1982 by David Tibet (né David Michael Bunting, renamed ‘Tibet’ by Genesis P-Orridge sometime prior to forming the group).

Tibet has been the only constant in the group, though Steven Stapleton (of Nurse With Wound) has appeared on nearly every Current 93 release. Michael Cashmore has also been a constant contributor since Thunder Perfect Mind. Douglas P. of Death in June has played on well over a dozen Current 93 releases, and Steve Ignorant of Crass (using the name Stephen Intelligent), Boyd Rice, runologist Freya Aswynn , Nick Cave, Björk, Andrew W.K., Will Oldham, Ben Chasny, Rose McDowall, Tiny Tim, Tony Wakeford of Sol Invictus, Marc Almond, John Balance of Coil, Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons, Baby Dee and Ian Read of Fire + Ice have also lent their talents over the years. Tibet is fond of the works of American writer Thomas Ligotti, and invited him to collaborate with Current 93.

Current 93 have released over twenty albums and many singles as well as having been a guest on many of the above listed artists’ records. Tibet has also collaborated with Nature and Organisation and The Hafler Trio.
Much of Current 93’s early work was similar to late 1970s and early 1980s industrial music: abrasive tape loops, droning synthesizer noises and Tibet’s distorted, excoriating vocals.

    doctor_is_in, да мне уже и лошадки не сильно доставляют, вот работы 80-х - это да, равно как и Island, например.

    HaHaHaYoureDead, 2000 - I Have a Special Plan for This World, 2000 - Sleep Has His House, 2005 - Hypnagogue, 2008 - Birth Canal Blues, 2009 - Aleph At Hallucinatory Mountain - как по мне так вполне замечательные работы, несколько грубовато подводить черту именно по 00. Этого года альбом своеобразный, но мне пришелся по вкусу. Конечно далеко не лошадки и уже не SHHH, но то там то здесь встречаются хорошие моменты. Ах да, Myrninerest отличный проект, дорога в Эйвбери и вообще для меня стала любимой работой с участием Тибета

    совершенно не разделяю восторгов по поводу нового альбома, вообще тибет в нулевые видимо исписался окончательно, не припомню ни одного хорошего альбома, вот так чтобы целиком. Т.е. понятно, что с возрастом мало кто становится лучше, но так просрать идеалы юности надо постараться. Кстати, пользуясь случаем, передам также привет копирасту Пирсу. И вы ведь не подумайте ничего дурного, я каррент чуть ли не с детсада слушаю. Но последние несколько лет - сплошные разочарования.

    'My Name Is All That's Left', on the other hand, is one of those ltd. ed. thingies for hardcore fans only.

    @krumbledkookie I used to go to bed listening to current 93 on a regular basis, not because their work is boring but because it's such a great vehicle into dreams ^^

    Listened to SixSixSix: SickSickSick for the first time in a long time last night, before falling asleep. What a terrific experience - what a weird and wonderful record!
