Leyland Kirby Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records

Leyland Kirby... Keyland Lirby. Whichever way you wanna swing it (and you can't swing it the second way, because that's not his name at all), he's a musician. A notorious one, in fact: under hisĀ CaretakerĀ alias, he joins William Basinski as a pione...read more »

The Caretaker
Everywhere At The End Of Time Stages 1-3

The Caretaker continues on his dark journey into dementia… Everywhere At The End Of Time is being released in installments on Bandcamp, but we also have a physical edition round-up of the first three volumes, presented over three CDs. Thirty-eight tracks of as-ever gorgeous melancholy music from this very special project, with exclusive artwork from Ivan Seal throughout the packaging.

The Caretaker
Everywhere At The End Of Time - Stage 4

In which Leyland Kirby progresses / regresses to Stage 4 (of 6!) of his 'Everywhere At The End Of Time' series as The Caretaker. Things are getting really serious now; not that Dementia is a stroll in the park. Traversing scratchy 78s and blurred music hall memories, the ongoing saga becomes more fragmented, refracted and glitchy to reflect the brain's increasingly sluggish and stuttering processes. The first in the series to arrive as a double LP, containing 90 minutes of music this time. Limited release on History Always Favours The Winners.

The Caretaker
Everywhere At The End Of Time - Stage 3

Three down, three to go: Leyland Kirby continues his mission as The Caretaker to explore the musical aesthetics of dementia on the third of his six-part Everywhere at the End of Time project. At this stage of the narrative, Kirby’s ballroom loops become increasingly murky and fragmented; the light spirits of the samples increasingly ironic and troubling. Available on CD and vinyl via Kirby’s own History Always Favours the Winners imprint.

Back when he didn't have a mane of bubbly curls and called himself James - Leyland Kirby was better known for his insane project V/Vm a kind of cross between experimental and sound collage/comedy act that couldn't be more different from his later solo and the Caretaker work. Here is a vinyl pressing of his experiments into 'new beat' an unacknowledged part of Manchester's dance music canon.  

Leyland Kirby
Memories Live Longer Than Dreams

Originally released in 2009, Memories Live Longer Than Dreams was the final part of Leyland Kirby's bleak masterpiece Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was is. Influenced by the likes of Vangelis, Lynch & Badalamenti, Brian Eno and Kirby’s previous work as The Caretaker, these are cracked and damaged soundfields with ghostly synth and cinematic atmospheres.   

The Caretaker
Everywhere At The End Of Time

The first of a 3 year long goodbye to Leyland Kirby’s The Caretaker project. An album released every 6 months that will map the decline brought on by dementia. This first stage will, most likely, be the most coherent of the 6, as it descends into hazy memoryless discourse. Old 78s play at odd speeds and are manipulated into a collage of distant memories.
