AXIS

My sixth album is called ‘AXIS’ and is due for release through Dais Records on the 12th of November.

‘AXIS’ was partly recorded at the now defunct No Recording Studio in Rayliegh before the COVID-19 pandemic and then finished at home in London. It was mixed by Randall Dunn at Circular Ruin studios in New York before being mastered by Stefan Betke at Scape Mastering in Berlin.

Dedicated to the memory of John Hannon.

Review of 2020

JG Thirlwell kindly invited me to contribute towards a group roundup of 2020 for his tumblr. I put mine together on the morning of 01/01/21 with a mild hangover and you can read it here.

Two new live albums released digitally through Bandcamp.

Saturnalia is a recording of my set from the Saturnalia festival at Macao in Milan a couple of years ago – one of my favourite ever gigs. Oregon Crisis is a recording from the Portland date of the USA tour with Blanck Mass and Steve Hauschildt, one of my favourite gigs of that tour. Both are mastered by John Hannon and Jack Callahan respectively.

I chose to release these due to gig cancellations and loss of income related to myself and my label Alter due to the COVID19 outbreak. If you cannot afford to pay the Bandcamp price for whatever reason then get in touch and we can sort something. Everyone is effected right now but your support during these bleak and uncertain times is nonetheless appreciated.
