On the album Black Ships Ate the Sky, David Tibet asked several of his favorite vocalists to record a version of the Wesleyan Hymn "Idumæa" for inclusion on this album. The album thus has tracks fromMarc Almond, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Shirley Collins, Baby Dee, Clodagh Simmonds, and Antony [Hegarty] (among others). So, despite having worked with Coil, I found C93 through Will Oldham. And I'm just scratching the surface. He's already released one album of all new songs this year: ten months after his previous, which was only 12 months after its prior. (But there was a 3-year gap between albums before that.)

BTW, if you dig Antony and the Johnsons, thank this guy. He released Antony & the Johnson's first single, EP, and album on his personal label Durto.

One thought on “Current 93 — Sleep Has His House”

  1. This is some heartfelt sh!t. Perhaps I erred high with a 10, but the 6's seemed harsh. Give it a 9 upon further review.

    FWIW, anybody with a hand in Antony's, um, boost, is AOK by me.
