Incoming <<< over a period of forthcoming time - in no rush whatsoever and for those who think i am dead.
THE CARETAKER - deleted scenes / forgotten dreams (2xLP - vinyl only - we/me le disque)
Available when the time is right this double vinyl album features the most emotive audio by The Caretaker so far. Following on from last years critically acclaimed album "theoretically pure anterograde amnesia" The Caretaker has abandoned darker and hard to grasp memories in favour of an altogether warmer journey which upon exposure invades your very own core being. This is a very personal album for the listener, pre-soul music from a bygone era which will attack your senses in a comfortable/uncomfortable way. There is no tracklisting, you are encouraged to find your own way through the release searching for your own reference points. A very important artifact and document, an album for personal introspection. Your own personal and individual soundtrack.
Available in an edition of only three-hundred copies with artwork provided and created by acclaimed artist Guy Denning and pressed with love by my friends on the Belgian based we/me le disque.
THE CARETAKER - desolate fragments of thought (12" private vinyl pressing)
Following on from 'deleted scenes / forgotten dreams' The Caretaker this time around will be taking you through the process of rearranging fragments of remembered sound focussing all the time on the desolate images conjured up from a series of broken hearts, broken people and many of lifes dreamers who are always destined to fail. Dusty and error ridden, the sounds of the brain malfuntioning when it's wired incorrectly, different processes of thought.
Available in an edition of only ninety-nine copies only with handwritten record labels, artwork to be confirmed.
THE STRANGER - bleaklow (private pressing - format to be confirmed)
The first and only release by V/Vm alias The Stranger appeared on Phthalo Recordings in 1997. Limited at that time to just 250 copies it has long since been sold out and sought after item from the Phthalo back catalogue of releases. Ten years have passed since the initial output and release and The Stranger has always remained in my thoughts. Described by some as the missing link between V/Vm output and The Caretaker, The Stranger operates in a territory where the atmosphere is dark, dank, dense and depressing.
Available in an edition of either 99 copies or 199 copies dependent on format.
V/VM - The maggots are waiting for you Maggie (private pressing - vinyl format to be confirmed)
I don't know about you but i personally can't wait for Maggie Thatcher to die. This release is to celebrate the fact she will be gone real soon. Limited to just eighty-one copies, one for each year of her miserable life. Featuring anti-tribute recordings and mixes dedicated to the old English Prime Minister from hell. Each release will come with two limited edition material prints. One featuring Maggie herself, white printed on Conservative blue, the other featuring Arthur Scargill, black ink printed on socialist labour red material. All hand screen printed, totally individual. People have been registering their interest for this release for sometime and if you have registered there is no need to mail me about this release again.
Available in an edition of 81 copies (format to be confirmed)
V/VM - There was a fish... in... the percolator (12" private vinyl pressing)
A tale which is continued from the V/Vm produced 'The Owls are not what they seem", a 7" vinyl which was pressed on the long gone but not forgotten English Muffin Records back in 2001, a brief visit back then to Twin Peaks. A promised vinyl only return to the lumber town featuring audio montages from the acclaimed TV show and Film, "Fire walk with me".
Available in an edition of 99 copies only, artwork to be confirmed.
BOB GELDOFFF - running the world (vukzid download)
I sat and watched some of Live 8 (i was in Sweden at the time) and felt sick as i watched the preaching antics of Bob and his cronies, Coldplay and Bono made me feel physically ill. Sure the sentiment was great. The World is fucked up and the Governments do little to help and are corrupt, but what was a great and seemingly sincere concert to help people back in the 80's at the original Live Aid had turned into a rotten gesture by some of the worst financially fat musicians around. It was to all purposes an exercise in marketing new releases under the false banner of helping those less fortunate in the World and made little difference. I digress, this is an audio response to that day, from Sweden too - Gothenburg (there's a theme there somewhere). An extended online pleasure from the ruins of the Pistol Disco to your own internal or external hard drive. You won't help save the world by downloading this, but i will guarantee that you're also not left feeling dirty and abused which is how Live 8 made me feel when watching it.
