We apologize for a slight delay with shipping the Roma Amor and Mushroom's Patience CDs. The pressing plant has informed us wrongly about the delivery dates. However, we expect the CDs this week and as soon as they are here we will make sure all your parcels are being posted immediately. Once again, sorry about this unexpected delay of about a week.
On a more positive note, we will be present at several festivals this year: expext to see us at Wrocalw Industrial Festival, Runes + Men, Young & Cold and Tower Transmissions.
More exciting projects to be announced soon - 2014 will be our busiest year so far!
So..... finally the endlessly delayed David Harrow album "The Succession" is out on CD! It took a while but we hope you will find it worth the wait. We had quite serious problems with the mastering as there are no master tapes available, so we tried our best to master from vinyl copies.
In February we will come with an Italian special - a double consisting of the new Mushroom's Patience album "Jellyfish" and the new Roma Amor record "On The Wire". We seriously believe that those two titles are among the best records we have ever put out. The Roma Amor album includes the tracks originally released on the 10" on SPQR, the Mushroom's Patience album features exciting guest singers. More info on the records' individual web sites. Release date for both is February 25th.
Some new and exciting projects are taking shape: the next step in our Renaldo & The Loaf re-issue series will be the most exciting step so far! We know you will all be very pleased to see what comes next!
The Box, Sheffield jazzfunkindustrial band around singer Peter Hope will get a CD release of the Doublevision material including an unreleased remix by Richard H. Kirk.
And speaking of the Cabs, we are terribly excited to announce the release of "Tenement Noise" by Kula. Kula? Remember the Cabs' house Hula Kula? Well Hula named themselves after it. Ron Wright of Hula recorded a piece of music with Stephen Mallinder back in the Eighties. This previously unreleased gem is coming out this Spring, with 3 new versions by both Mal and Ron, naming themselves Kula for this project.
Contrary to our plans, we are also promoting some live shows in Vienna again: Mushroom's Patience will play with the fabulous The Burning Hell at Rhiz Club, Vienna, on June 16th. Polish Industrial superstars Job Karma will play their Austrian debut show on May 11th, supported by Hiroshimabend from USA. And dark folk Cabaret torch singers Roma Amor will play at Xi Bar on the 5th of July. Come around if you are in or near Vienna.
The new homepage is finally coming! We have been looking forward to this for a long time, and hope you like the new design as much as we do. We have tried to make the site a lot more user-friendly.
The year is coming to a close with three more CDs - Non Toxique Lost's new album "Aphasie" being the first to see the light of day. We hope to have copies ready for this year's Wroclaw Industrial Festival.
The new Renaldo & The Loaf re-issue, "Songs for Swinging Larvae" is ready to be ordered. As with "Struve & Sneff", this is a double CD with a full album's worth of bonus material.
"Struve" is now out of print. We plan to make a new CD version later, for the moment you can order it as a download only.
And finally, like every year, we will be present at WIF in Poland with a big table full of merchandise. Hope to see some of you there!
