Nico Vascellari

If you are in London you should check out Nico Vascellari's show at Crisp, its just off Oxford Street. He's an incredibly interesting artist who used to be in bands and seems to have expanded his interest in performance and music to encompass something verging on primitive rites. Apparently he's working on casting a six metre bronze monolith right now. Show at Crisp ends March 14th.

This is how old I will be before I can afford the bits I want for my bike.

Cycled back across the Thames from Corsica Studios at about 1.30am last night after the SUNN O))) show, the roads were dead and the moon was out and it was a great end to a great evening.

I actually got to hear the new SUNN O))) album at Fortress studio on Saturday: Its incredible. The sound system in the studio made perfect sense of this album, really did it justice. I'd say its the band's first truly great avant garde album. Some parts are just so mind alteringly bassy and others are heavier than anything they've yet done. Album closer 'Alice' reminded me most of the show they did at the Oya festival in Oslo last year. A great record, though I doubt my stereo will sound so good.

In a similar sonic vein, KHANATE are fondly eulogised by myself and a horde of musical folks over at The Left Hand Path. I wish I had a picture of Alan Dubin's custom KHANATE Nike basketball boots. They were truly disconcerting.

Behold, the cover of the forthcoming new CD from SYLVESTER ANFANG II. Very happy with this, its a killer album. Clay Ruby of Burial Hex does vocals on a couple of tracks, its like Dr John gone wrong.

Equinox Festival

Working on the Equinox Festival here in London, June 12-14, its such an enormous undertaking that its pretty frightening, but its going to be incredible. A cross platform event over three days that combines film, music, performance and lectures on a wide array of perspectives on spiritual thought, such as magick, shamanism and altered states. More posts to follow on this soon I'm sure and we are publishing a specific blog on this very shortly.

No news is...

No news. Things went seriously awry with my efforts to foist Nihilismus on an unsuspecting public this last few months... Currently working on a new plan for a large webshop kinda thing. Watch this space for more info soon.
