Emblems - The Menstrual Years

Öffnen Sie iTunes, um Hörproben zu wählen und Musik zu kaufen und zu laden.


Serving as an overview of the band's first ten years, Emblems is a useful and quite extensive introduction to the unsettled world of David Tibet and his many fellow travellers (notably Steven Stapleton). Given the length of many of Current 93's songs, including some side-long numbers from the vinyl days, Tibet chose to edit down a number of selections to provide at least a taste of what he does for curious listeners. It may set the purists' teeth on edge, but balance is provided with the inclusion of many rare or unreleased tracks, including a slew from the Thunder Perfect Mind sessions on the second disc. Technical details aside (though credit to both the extensive track details and Tibet's own detailed thank yous and explanations), Emblems makes for two and a half hours of plunges into dark art collage, fragile, religiously tinged folk and many other styles and sounds that owed little or nothing to the prevailing trends in the U.K.'s music through the '80s and early '90s.

The rarities include their own treasures, such as the blunt but welcoming title of "Happy Birthday Pigface Christus," which matches the music, a reworking of "Silent Night" that leads into Tibet's own sharper depiction of an untraditional Nativity.

With a glut of industrial-pop hybrids on the market in the 1980s and '90s, several bands stayed true to the experimental nature of early industrial music. The Psychic TV axis alone spawned many creative artists, including Current 93's David Tibet, who blends Gothic chanting and haunting atmospherics with industrial noisescapes courtesy of tape loops and synthesizers. Though Tibet doesn't quite have bandmates, he frequently works with a core of collaborators including ex-Psychic TV compatriot John...
