I'm proud to announce my involvement with Splitting Sounds Records. A recent innovative setup by Serbian artists including Spleen Erebus. Their mission is to release full albums of beautiful, unnerving, provocative, talented music and spoken word.
A lot of the releases are available for free download or by donation.
Please check out their site, some great stuff out there. Please support them.
And I've compiled an LP of various offerings. A series of older works, some re-edited but pretty raw, off-the-wall stuff. I thank Splitting Sounds Records for having the audacity and insight to take an interest in my work.
This project began in the fall of 2012 while I was entombed in a cave house on the wintery island of Santorini. Originally entitled Fringe Scabies the band were formed by Wurzel Swaytooth and myself. The idea was to create a little artistic havoc on Soundcloud.
Since then things have shifted with Mr Swaytooth taking an increasingly active role in the creative process. Thus Fringe Scabies, like some pale, obese maggot, underwent a terrific metamorphosis. The Adamant Shade is here!
please check out the Sound Cloud page and have a listen. We are drawing upon fiction/fact and occult sources to produce music and spoken word in a variety of sub-genres. Nothing is set in stone, everything is up for grabs. Enjoy!
Back over the winter of 2012/13 I hid in a cave on the volcanic spit that is named Santorini and there, (exiled for crimes of passion and depravity) embarked on a quest of self immolation... okay okay I wrote and produced a load of spoken word.
One of the projects that came from the hedonistic gluttony of that sojourn was called Fringe Scabies. A band concept spanning oceans and seas no less!
My musical cohort and Bacchic chanter par excellence is my good friend Mr Swaytooth, whose musical abilities are wide and varied. Together we cobbled together a rack of tunes that lovers of good music can listen to at their leisure
