This is an archival digital release of my self-titled album on Vanity Pill Tapes. It was the very first album by this project to have a physical release. I was honoured to have this come out, back in January 2015, and I was also honoured to be involved with the live actions co-ordinted by label head and friend Reece Thomas Green in his hometown of Folkestone. Reece has done an amazing job at building a sense of community around the label - it really feels like I belong to an awe-inspiring family - and I couldn't have felt this more than in December 2016 when I aided the Vanity Pill tour of Alocasia Garden (Reece) and VP artists Burning Pyre and Negative Midas Touch.
Included in this new archival version of the release is the original, longer mixes of these two tracks which appear on the album (as bonus tracks):
A1. Moss Cage (originally 6:37, cut to 6:31 for VP version)
A2. All The Dead... (originally 9:30, cut to 9:21 for VP version)
These tracks were cut down to accommodate the length of the C40, as the album was originally crafted without taking that into consideration.
I have also put the original, lengthy track titles in for the tracks which were shortened to ease fitting on to the limited space on the cassette artwork.
I'd like to thank Reece for what an amazing job he did with the release as a whole - the artwork was stunning, the tape was beautiful, and I am so happy to see it publicly 'supported by' five people on the VP bandcamp page. I had always worried it would end up being one of the VP tapes with the smallest uptake as I'm very aware of how terrible I am at self-promotion, or at least, "selling myself". Reece is an awesome guy and he's running an awesome label - both his work with the label, his visual art and work with zines, and his own musical projects are all going from strength to strength with no sight of decline in the near-future. He continues to impress himself upon the seedy noise underground of the UK as well as the ripe global internet community who, I would wager, foster the bulk of VP support (as perhaps it should be with all great noise labels).
