ICE BIRD SPIRAL LP

Album very nearly done...

Up to my neck in deadlines right now (normal service resumed soon!), but just breakin' off for a few minutes to say our first album's verrrry nearly finished:



Culled from literally hundred of hours of studio/live recordings, astral jams, out-of-body experiences, found sounds, hauntings/seances/tapes of the dead...

(Never work with animals, children or dead people. No, really.)

It's a killer. And wait 'til you see the fabulous cover artwork - it'll blow yr mind!

I'll sign up for two copies in advance, then! ....Sounds grrrate, man!

(Did you still need those northern recitations for later mixes, BTW?)

Hey, X - yeah, some Northern recitations v. def. required at some point...I'll be in contact....

This one's a 14-tracker, last I looked...but Cloudboy and I have around another CD's worth in various states of completedness, as well as other planned stuff bubbling under...one thing we've been exploring is trying different approaches with vocals: there's twisted 'spoken word' prose stuff, surrealist cut n paste, non-verbal noise n nonsense, children, babies, animals...we've also been out-sourcing some of the vocals, by getting friends to contribute stuff: different voices, accents, approaches...I can't speak for CB, but I think we've both been trying to short-circuit our own expectations and not repeat ourselves...so far, it's been working pretty well....

It’s been a total blast, me thinks we’ve given birth to a mis-wired hybrid of terrible beauty, and crippled reflection.

LOL! Oh yeah, it has been a blast, alright.
