There are also unconfirmed rumours of a London date in early December, more details as we have them…
HT has also made a mix for Self Titled magazine’s Needle Exchange series.
…and for those of you that still don’t know, it seems that our HT has been moonlighting as one half of Stratus. The album ‘As the Crow Flies‘ highlights their love for warped soundtracks, fuzzed-out psychedelia and analog aesthetics. It’s available now, as a CD or download from their Bandcamp page. They also have a YouTube channel over there.
…is now available for purchase at our bandcamp site for the sum of £5.99.
The Outer Church
Our Head Technician will be performing a live set at this esteemed organisation on the 17th February. Newly installed at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, the prospect of an interesting night is assured. Performances from Old Apparatus and slurtronic folkster (it says here) Kemper Norton mean this will be an amazing event.
Also featured are not one, but two documentaries about Warren Ellis (not an Australian musician) and Grant Morrison. Captured Ghosts and Talking With Gods give an insight into the lives and careers of these visionary writers.
Right then, our Head Technician has sworn that he will have the next instalment of Black Mill Tapes ready for us by the end of January.
Volume 3:All Pathways Open comprises a further twelve tracks lovingly transferred from those now fabled 1/4″ and cassette tapes.
The Advisory Circle kindly lent a hand and retransferred ‘Electronic Rhythm Number Eighteen’ for which we are very grateful. Our Head Technician tells us this particular segment had been giving him a fair bit of trouble, so the help was appreciated.
Once again it will be available for purchase on our bandcamp page for the sum of £5.99.
Previews will be going up on the SoundCloud page in due course.
UPDATE: Release date now confirmed as 23rd January 2012.
For those awaiting the next instalment of the Black Mill Tapes, we’re afraid you will have to wait a little longer…
We were assured by our Head Technician that he would have something for us by the 31st October, the anniversary of our first release. He clearly isn’t going to make that deadline, and has been reprimanded accordingly. He blames the workload that we place on him, but we know he’s been moonlighting, producing illicit remixes and even lining up releases on another label.
We have, however, managed to secure a piece that was destined for Volume 3. HT won’t reveal his reasoning for leaving this track off the (hopefully) forthcoming LP, but we think it’s rather good. Please find relevant material here.
Once again, as part of our continued quality control procedures, please make us aware of your thoughts on this, and all, matters.
…Black Mill Tapes Volume 2:Do You Synthesize? on April 11th.
It will once again be available here for the princely sum of £4.99
You can get a sneak peek at the tracklisting over there.
