from the latest newsletter: "We hope to be receiving the beautiful new 2x12” reissue, on transparent purple vinyl, of Thunder Perfect Mind within the next month. It has been beautifully remastered by The Bricoleur at Bladud Flies!, and comes with a 4-page lyric insert. As soon as they arrive, we will add them to the online store and send out another update. The album is manufactured and distributed by Cargo, and will also be available in every single record shop in the world"
Tibeth once told that Hitler and nazis appeared as Satan. But Hitler as Kalki, his song about hope, freedom and the end of the destruction represents another point of view. Perfect example, how art and lyrics became more cogent than just words... Anyway, Current is full of secret messages.
Can anyone recommend me album from their catalog which is closest to Rome/Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio/King Dude sound? I'm wondering if I can expect something like this from Current 93, but I'd really love to hear that. Tried few songs but it didn't work (but all four 'similar artists' fits me well, surprisingly)
They can get pretty nightmarish though, I Have A Special Plan For This World is the creepiest thing ever, and that's far from their only creepy song. On the other hand, some of their more underrated material like Where The Long Shadows Fall (Beforetheinmostlight) is supremely moving and sad and beyond beautiful.
Idk, haha, that might be Doug P. The man has some humor and his discography is very rich and full of unique ideas. Just like.. a DIJ album sounds pretty much always, regardless of the quality, like a DIJ album. In the best possible way. Same with C93. Nevertheless, I think he's pretty much dead as an artist as it is.
Late 80s Current = best Current. Imho. Gotta love the incoherency of e.g. Swastikas - a good third of the songs is complete and utter shit and it doesn't even worsen the listening experience of the album as a whole. Kinda adds something for the better idk.
I Have A Special Plan is magickal, but my favorites shall always be IMPERIUM and Christ And The Pale Queens. they honestly sums up everything i love about early C93. i kinda wish he'd released more material like that.
