Check out my review on the front page. I think it's great.

His first album was a bit dodgy in places, but the track "Open heart zoo" is just unbelievable. I first heard it as background music in a record shop and practically put the owner in a headlock in order to find out who was singing it.

This is probably of no interest to anyone other than Eklektikos and myself, but Current 93 have just released a new album to rave reviews all over the music press- featuring guest turns from Will Oldham and Marc Almond.

I'm definitely plotting to purchase it along with Halo as soon as I become something close to solvent again. What I'm most excited about, though, are David Tibet's plans to record some kind of collaboration with Stephen O'Malley, the man responsible for SunnO))), Khanate and numerous other excellent drone/doom projects. I've been hoping for something similar ever since C93 started playing gigs with OM.

Tibet works well with that kind of sound- he's got masses of experience through his collaborations with John Balance and Steven Stapleton.

I bought the new Current 93 album today. In HMV! They actually have Current 93 albums on sale in HMV! On the high street! And in Virgin too! And they're shifting them as well!

It feels like the rest of the world is finally catching on. Anyway, the album is their best in years.

Not particularly, though "Open heart zoo" got used for a Lexus advert a few years ago.

Is the address I used for the LWP discs OK, or have you moved yet?

If you're moving, just PM me where to send it.
