|CURRENT 93 Black Ships Ate The Sky CD Digipak. Single Copy
Black Ships Ate The Sky, Current 93’s long awaited ALL NEW studio album – this is NOT a re-release of anything, but all new material! ‘Black Ships…’ is a 76-minute opus exploring David Tibet’s vision of the apocalypse as wrought by the ominous Black Ships. For his latest studio enterprise, Tibet assembled perhaps the band’s strongest line-up ever. Longtime C93 collaborator Steven Stapleton (Nurse With Wound) is joined by guitarist Michael Cashmore, cellist John Contreras, ambient sound composer William Basinski, William Breeze (Coil), Seattle artist Amy Phillips and newest member Ben Chasny (Six Organs Of Admittance). The album also features contributions from an impressive array of vocal talent: Marc Almond (Soft Cell), Antony (Antony And The Johnsons), Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billie, British folk legend Shirley Collins, Clodagh Simonds (Mellow Candle), Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle), and Durtro labelmates Baby Dee and Pantaleimon.
