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 - 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.

V/Vm
Brabant Schrobbeler

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 pres...view item »

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...view item »

Leyland Kirby
Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was

The last time I saw James Kirby he was wearing a pig mask destroying Chris De Burgh songs at a pub in Leeds years ago. Now he's got big hair and is being all sensitive everywhere. It's amazing how time flies and how people change as V/VM is no more but The Caretaker lives on. As does his new moniker Leyland Kirby and here's the 2nd part of the 'sad...view item »

Leyland Kirby
When We Parted My Heart Wanted To Die

After watching that episode of Tomorrows World as a kid I was sure that by the year 2000 we would all be flying around on jet-packs but "Sadly The Future Is No Longer What It Was". And That is the title of a stunning double vinyl album trilogy from one James Leyland Kirby, probably better Known as VV/m, The Caretaker, The Stranger, Notorious P.I...view item »

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 ar...view item »

Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was (Deluxe Triple CD Edition)

The complete 3CD 'suite' of Leyland Kirby's Sadly, the Future is No Longer What it Was has just popped it's mournful head around the office door after the three double vinyl editions which came and went so fast I can't even remember seeing them. As loads of lengthy reviews have already been written (by ourselves and many others) I won't go too f...view item »

Leyland Kirby
Breaks My Heart Each Time

Originally the provocateur behind the madcap V/Vm label (sample release ‘Snooker Loopy’ various mangled takes on Snooker-based themes), then for basically inventing hauntology with the much-loved The Caretaker project, finally exploring more acid/rave themes under his (sort of) own name.

The Death of Rave (A Partial Flashback)

‘The Death of Rave’ was originally a vast project which existed on Leyland Kirby’s V/Vm Test website between the years of 2006 and 2008. You can read all about it in the press release - interesting stuff. On this CD eight highlights have been compiled and edited into a more manageable-sized physical release - “Proof of it...view item »

Leyland Kirby
Intrigue & Stuff Vol. 4

He turned 40 around last week I think. I saw a picture of him cutting his cake on the interweb which had been decorated to resemble a dartboard. Almost as cool as the Warp records cake my ex once made me. Which in turn was nowhere near as amazing as the Netto-themed cake she baked her old man! No I am not on drugs, this is all true!

Intrigue & Stuff Vol.3

So we are into the second half of this four part series, five tracks wide and 35 minutes long, it begins with 'The Start Of Wars And The End Of Eras' which is the sound of machines singing while malfunctioning. The electronics paint huge cyberdelic vistas, futuristic cities decaying in re...view item »

Intrigue & Stuff Volume 2

Butter me up, this is a mighty strange disc. After being horribly underwhelmed by the non-starter throwback confusion of the recent Caretaker album (which merely revived his old "style" - ballroom records wholesale sampled with not a great deal else to embellish them apart from a "spooky" vibe - he was indulging in a decade ago) I'm more tha...view item »

Leyland Kirby
Intrigue & Stuff

Yet another curve-ball from oldskool Lancashire Raver Kirby. Changing colour like a confused chameleon, never blending in with its environment. This release was unannounced and comes as a minimally packaged hand-stamped white label which is a stark contrast to the breathtaking sleeves from his trilogy that were embellished with breath taking art...view item »

Eager To Tear Apart The Stars

Having enjoyed the amazing 'Sadly The Future Is No Longer What It Was' trilogy a great deal, plus loving the first two 'Intrigue & Stuff' records, it's not difficult to begin to question whether Mister Kirby has set the bar too high. The trilogy was a difficult set to follow, especially with all of the universal critical acclaim but ...view item »

Leyland Kirby
Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was (Deluxe Six LP Edition)

not a review of the music. a review of the GLUE. The three covers are shrinkwrapped. Once this is off, you'll see that the three covers (single not gatefold) are held together by glue spots. BEWARE OF SEPARATING THE COVERS. Despite a printed warning about this issue from Normans (good on you guys), I still ended up with a piece missing out of th...view item »

Music & Migration

Here's a doozy for you! It's a 21 track compilation CD called Music & Migration and it's designed to bring to your attention the plight of the modern day bird as we scupper its existence by destroying forests and generally being all human and fucking things up everywhere like we do. We all love birds and from the roster (really had to stop myse...view item »
