HIDDEN RITUALS

We found this interesting book about to be revealed in June

---------------------

ENGLAND'S HIDDEN REVERSE

The first book about Coil, Current 93, Nurse with Wound

All three bands have a fanatical hardcore following thus guaranteeing the book strong sales. Between them they have consistently sold records successfully worldwide, yet all three have chosen to remain in the shadows. Each book is an individually numbered limited edition with photographs and original artwork, complete with free previo...

BOHREN UND DER CLUB OF GORE
BOHREN UND DER CLUB OF GORE

Morten Gaß, from the fascinating low end and low mood purveyors, BOHREN UND DER CLUB OF GORE, whom we cannot emphasize more respect, recently notified us that the two of BOHREN & SUNN O))) were featured together in the massive German metal magazine HAMMER. An article about doom also featured the likes of TROUBLE< whom any association should be commended. Quite humorous considering the nature of SUNN O))) and BOHREN's sounds. But it goes to show that many are metalheads at heart. THX.

Thoughts on the mystik Sun Ra
Thoughts on the mystik Sun Ra

From the concluding pages of SPACE IS THE PLACE: THE LIVES AND TIMES OF SUN RA by John F. Szwed (1997):

"There was nothing surprising about [Sun Ra's] mysticism per se: scratch any musician and you find a crypto-Pythagorean. Scratch music history and you find a line which stretches back at least as far as Marsilio Ficino in the 15th century and his belief that music is formed of the same substance as spirit, that it has the power to bring individuals into line with the heavens; or to Henry Cor...

Wansdyke

Heres a cool photo Mr. Cope sent us of Anne and I on the Wansdyke during west winds...

What is Wansdyke? Wansdyke is a long ditch and bank, also known as a linear defensive earthwork - this is the technical term. Wansdyke is dated to the Dark Ages, roughly between 400 and 700 AD. It runs from the Avon valley south of Bristol to Savernake Forest near Marlborough in Wiltshire. Maybe it is not as familiar to many people as Offa's Dyke or Hadrian's Wall, yet it is one of the largest linear earthwo...

Audial/Realiz section updates

Posted: May 8, 2003

I did a large update to the Audial section, and nearly have all of the release to date on there. Many of the imagery is FPO until I can get better/actual scans, but those web swipes will have to do for now.

Also, I have a list of available items for sale in the Realiz section now. Please click on the single image therin to view the list. In the future we'll get it more singular to each item (as far as a visual) but, like I mentioned prior, this site is a constant work in progress.

Thanks. Good...
