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.

    Хоть и приятный неофолк, всё же чего-то на свой манер чарующего им не хватает. Даже All the Pretty Little Horses - такое ощущение, что перед её сочинением переслушали Pink Floyd - Julia Dream.

    Here: weebos making any fucking opinions. Seriously, its 2015 already, do you still think someone pays even half of shit for what you wrote under your mongolian cartoon avatar? It doesnt matter if someone agrees with you or not. No matter what your statement was, its invalid and irrelevant. From now on, forever. Its that freaking simple. Christ.

    they won't let him inside the arcade, is my guess. he's too smashed again, chanting in a thousand simultaneous tongues and the clerics within know better than to let such a goofball inside, no matter how excellent he happens to be at Tekken.
