C93: Lathe-cut Vinyl Rechannelling Begins For The Entire C93 Catalogue in Chronological Order
David Tibet is working with The Bricoleur (Bladud Flies!) on a project to reissue the entire back catalogue of C93 as lathe-cut UtterEditions. The (lovely) Bricoleur is in the process of remastering every album and mini-album by C93—as well as other items connected to the continued presence at the Apocalypse Drag PickNick. How to reissue the 12” singles has not been decided , but they will also appear!
The vinyl for each single album will contain 2 lathe-cut records, with the music on sides 1 and 3, and silk-screened images and text on sides 2 and 4. The records will be housed in an elaborate silk-screened gatefold sleeve, which itself will be placed inside a hand-made linen bag with ties to close it, and with silk-screened text and images on the bag relating to the specific album it holds. Each album will also come with a signed and numbered silk-screened insert.
So, for example, Nature Unveiled will contain 2 lathe-cut 12” records. The first record will feature “Ach Golgotha (Maldoror Is Dead)” on side 1, with side 2 having no music but instead a silk-screened image. The second record will contain “The Mystical Body Of Christ In Chorazaim (The Great In The Small)” on side 1, and will carry a different silk-screened image on side 2. The first two releases will be Nature Unveiled and Dogs Blood Rising. These two titles are expected to be ready in April 2017. They will be added to the shop once received.
C93 Thunder Perfect Mind Vinyl Reissue: A Small Update & Request For a Scan of His Painting
C93’s Thunder Perfect Mind has been remastered by The Bricoleur (Bladud Flies!) and the test-pressings have been approved by David and Michael Cashmore. They sound as fresh as Seth.
‘Some time ago, a kind gentleman contacted me saying he had acquired the painting I had made which is reproduced on the back of the album’s sleeve. He had received it from a dear American friend of mine, to whom I had given it many years ago. But I can’t remember the name of the man who has the painting. If he reads this, can he contact me though my website, as I am hoping to get a scan of it. Thank you!‘
There will be more news soon on the album’s release and the special edition of it, signed by Michael Cashmore and David, which also will come with a lathe-cut 12” of an unreleased version of They Return To Their Earth.

House Of Mythology have made available a compilation album of songs of sounds from their label, including Hypnopazūzu , for free download. David was happy to provide the Sahidic Coptic text on the cover, which could be translated as “Be well in the Lord” and is a standard greeting in Coptic letters.
