Mike Patton and Jean-Claude Vannier – Corpse Flower (Ipecac Recordings)

Mike Patton needs no introduction. Jean Claude-Vannier probably needs one being as he is ‘not of our world’ if that’s not being an elitist, metal loving arsehole? Anyway, Jean Cluade-Vennier is a 76-year-old French composer, poet and arranger, probably more… Continue Reading →

Sun, Rain In Life – 96/4 (S/R)

Baron – Torpor (Svart)

Birdeatsbaby, Gabby Young & Death In Texas – London Black Heart 18/6/15

It’s very colourful walking into The Black Heart this evening with a display of trippy feathered jewellery, masks and old photos on display at the side of the room. It’s still fairly thin on the ground but things have a… Continue Reading →
