Steven Stapleton / David Tibet
The Threat Of Memory

The Threat Of Memory is a 5 CD box set compiling recordings made by the highly experimental Steven Stapleton (Nurse With Wound) and David Tibet (Current 93). Imagine if you were going for a night out in the netherworld - this would be the soundtrack. 5CD box set on United Dirter. Includes disc of previously unreleased works.

Current 93
Invocations Of Almost

The press release suggests Current 93 have dreamt their latest album, Invocations Of Almost, but I can assure you that it exists in the physical world too. The music here is made to accompany David Tibet’s art exhibition. In a typical Current 93-style move the CD version contains 59 minutes of music as Tibet turns 59 years old. The vinyl edition is slightly shorter in duration.

Current 93
Swastikas For Noddy / Crooked Crosses For The Nodding God

Current 93, the perpetual post-industrial rabble rousers, have a record out named Swastikas For Noddy / Crooked Crosses For The Nodding God. Take that, childhood loves! David Tibet has no time for your sentimentalism. This 1986 double album is a classic Current 93 release, perfectly reissued by The Spheres.

Nodding God
Play Wooden Child

Nodding God is a musical project seemingly designed with those who love fantasy mythology in mind. Formed in reality musicians Andrew Liles and David Tibet, along with a shadowy mystery figure known as ‘Underage Shaitan Boy’, the band claim to be 666 years old and sing in an ancient, guttural Mesopotamian tongue on first album Play Wooden Child. Very, very strange, but very, very compelling... 

Current 93
The Moons At Your Door

Brand new material from erstwhile avant-mystiks Current 93. The Moons At Your Door will accompany the anthology of David Tibet’s writings of the same name (coming soon), and contains two side-long tracks of deep mystique. CD or white vinyl edition, each version containing unique artwork by Tibet himself. Released by The Spheres.

Steven Stapleton / David Tibet
The Threats Of Memories

The Threats of Memories is a collection of tracks by David Tibet from Current 93 and Steven Stapleton from Nurse With Wound. It features tracks from previous collaborations The Sadness of Things, Musicalische Kürbs Hütte and previously unreleased outtake from Musical Pumpkin Cottage. The album was originally made available at the Current 93/Nurse With Wound London gig in October ‘17. LP on Dirter.

Steven Stapleton & David Tibet
Dead Memory

Another collaboration between two masters of the esoteric English underground, David Tibet of Current 93 and Steven Stapleton of Nurse With Wound. These are musicians whose trajectories are very much tangled together, a fierce collaborative spirit forged between the pair. These are two outtakes that didn’t make it onto their ‘Threats of Memories’ project.  

Current 93
The Light Is Leaving Us All

David Tibet's never-ending Current 93 project continues to do its thing with The Light Is Leaving Us All, another foray into the deep web of psych folk that will most likely shake you to your very core. An interesting lineup characterises this one, including Nurse With Wound's Andrew Liles, renowned contemporary pianist Reinier van Houdt and folk songwriter Alasdair Roberts. Plus others, just in time for the Halloween season.

Zu93
Mirror Emperor

Hell of a prospect here: Italian noise-metal-jazz monolith band Zu and mystik English Current 93 troubadour David Tibet in collaboration. Surprisingly enough, what comes out is in many places soft, sensitive and melancholy, marshalling strings and acoustic guitars alongside Tibet’s incantations. Mirror Emperor is released on House Of Mythology.

Current 93
The Stars On Their Horsies

Current 93 continue their near-40 year experimental musical journey by scoring a pair of group founder and only constant member, David Tibet’s recent nightmares. Their umpteenth album, The Stars On Their Horsies is one long song clocking in at precisely 39 minutes and 39 seconds. CD on The Spheres.

Coil / Current 93 / Foetus / Test Dept.
The Sound Of Progress

This is The Sound Of Progress circa 1988, as expressed by extreme and experimental artists like Coil, Current 93, Test Dept. and Foetus. Performance footage, interview footage, and footage of these chirpy fellows hanging out is all included on what appears to be the first proper DVD release of this documentary (first broadcast on Dutch TV). DVD with booklet.

Death In June
Free Tibet

If you want Neofolk, post industrial oddness with an unnerving edge, look no further than Douglas Pearce and David Tibet. Death In June and the vocal stylings of Tibet from Current 93 fame show you the ropes here. Originally released as a free download 10 years ago, this is the first official CD release.

Current 93
Faust

Everyone has had a go at the old Faust legend, from Johann Goethe to F.W. Murnau to Thomas Mann. So it is no great surprise to see Current 93, who’s leader David Tibet probably sees himself on similar terms, providing their own interpretation of Faust (although apparently they get to it by an obscure 19th century author named Count Stenbock, obviously).

Current 93
Hypnagogue

This EP from Current 93, out of print for quite some time until this reissue from Durtro / Jnana, features two versions of the Hypnagogue piece. Hypnagogue is a mystic piece of writing recited by David Tibet, accompanied by touching piano on the original version, and by orchestra in the newer version.

Current 93
Of Ruine or Some Blazing Starre

Some folkloric angsty fever from Current 93. Of Ruine or Some Blazing Starre is the 1994 work from the English group. Exploring the possibilities of avant-grade folk with some pretty grim themes, '93 are totally unflinching about any of their subjects. Experimenting with forms & sounds, and blending acoustics with electronics in their own idiosyncratic way. Pick it up on CD from Durtro/Jnana.

Current 93
HoneySuckle Æons

A 2011 suite of sound-weird from Current 93, now reissued on gold vinyl. The band’s line-up for Honeysuckle Aeons includes regulars Andrew Liles and David Tibet as well as Baby Dee and Armen Ra. The tone is mournful and introspective, and the music incorporates theremin, church organ, oud, kalimba, and much more besides. The 12” comes with a booklet of lyrics and photographs, and is released by Coptic Cat.

Birth Canal Blues

Furthering the narrative with Current 93. Birth Canal Blues is the 2008 offering from the English ensemble. It's stripped back setting lets the poetry take the limelight with a piano accompanying through out. The vocal delivery is dipped in some grainy effects, which adds to the DIY and ominous aesthetic through out. It's avant-folk for the adventurous adventurer. Pick it up on CD from Coptic Cat.

Current 93
Soft Black Stars

Soft Black Stars was he 15th album by folk-based experimentalists Current 93. Originally released in 1998, the album came 15 years into the band’s career. This remastered 2LP reissue features two additional versions of closing track Chewing On Shadows, never before released on vinyl. For the curious and uninitiated, Antony & The Johnsons recorded their own version of the title track for their I Fell In Love With A Dead Boy EP. Double LP on The Spheres.

Current 93
Black Ships Heat The Dancefloor

The tracks are destined, as the title suggests, strictly for the dancefloor - from the hard industrial cyber slabs of Foetus’s reworkings to Matmos’s more house-based interpretations.
