Notes

Limited in total to 216 copies, with the 216 split equally over two differently-coloured screen-printed covers.

108 copies come in screen-printed cover with a Silver Face and Gold Spheres on black card; the other 108 copies (this) is screen-printed with a White Face and Variegated Colour Spheres on black card.

The cover is signed by David Tibet and numbered X/108, in white ink on the back cover. Furthermore David Tibet has written, in coloured pencil, STARS on one label, and HORSIES on the other label.

The music on the LP version of The Stars On Their Horsies is different to the CD version - means the music itself and not the fact that it was split in two parts for the vinyl release.

The vinyl does not have matrix numbers.

Has anyone heard both the CD and the Vinyl versions? I have the CD. It's amazingly well constructed, very impressive, but I wouldn't call it an easy thing to listen to, mainly based on what I'm hearing described by the voices. Maldoror may be ded ded dead. Gilles de Rais may not be dead, may be red. I know Current 93 is never a skip through the flowers chasing butterflies, even when that is what it appears to be. It is odd and disconcerting how easily so many lyrics that I know so well, and thought I somewhat understood can fall into place with new meanings in a new context, and for now, a new context is whispered throughout this piece. One could create a concordance of biblical concordance proportions connecting the dots and unmasking the many symbols and their various meanings, which have remained, to my mind, largely consistent. The first cover art I've seen for the new album coming in October appears to reflect this. Edit: the new album, The Light is Leaving Us All, is simply a masterpiece. The CD cardboard package has zero information, aside from the title on the thin spine,... no dates, names, gratitude, nada, nothing. (edit: same with the LP version). It is a mysterious piece of recorded sound and dream state secrets, ingeniously constructed, utterly unique, and frightening, perhaps even nauseating... a subjective reaction, but mine. This may please those who have lamented the various changes in C93 since Nature Unveiled, Dogs Blood Rising, In Menstrual Night, though this isn't like those early albums either-- but for me, these come to mind because of the heavy atmosphere or horror and the layers of sound. This one doesn't sound like any other C93 album, but is undeniably and thoroughly Current 93, and while not sounding like those early dark sound-atmospheres, it is, in its effect on this listener, closer sonically to those albums than anything recorded and released officially, or rather "wide," since, excepting perhaps Faust and I Have a Special Plan for this World. Lyrically, it doesn't appear to relate to those early works, except perhaps what is maybe being said in the buried whispering and talking and playing of children on a piece of "In Menstrual Night"... I don't know, I can't catch enough of it, the words come and go in overlapping waves. It isn't lyric that Tibet is delivering here, or not much is (one or two bits come out loud, complete, are repeated chant like), and there is no lyric sheet. From what I can make out, this is tied to The Frolic and Judas as Black Moth.... the murdered child and children, and likely much more besides. This is a dark piece of work, and it leaves the impression of a spell having been cast. I'd love to read other reviews, thoughts, and I hope others offer them here.

Fantastic! I have a ticket to the Current 93 show scheduled on 04/05/20 at the Warsaw in NYC (Brooklyn). It's about a two thousand mile trip for me to get there, but I'm going to make the arrangements to do so, and then hope that the show doesn't get cancelled for any reason... three dates, back to back, same venue, in the U.S.... and that's it, and it may never happen again, so I'll risk it. I ain't rich so the air travel and such will make it a very expensive concert for my meager budget! I can think of no other musical artist I'd go to such trouble to see/hear live. C93 is something altogether singular, nothing else like it, which is strange considering that C93 is rarely even like itself, as in, it is always changing and yet remain always unique. Thanks for the update.

Yes I went to the show in Wroclaw and omg it was so sublime I can barely think of it without crying!

Hello parasite. Did you decide to see the show in October?

I almost forgot to mention I also caught Drew McDowall performing Time Machines a couple of months ago. Amazing!

Listen to this and maybe that "no hope of personally attending" will morph and twist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjs0TRG9p68&list=LLBtRQVFY0aTkVF2CKFsO-3w&t=0s&index=2

I know I know, I'd love to. I saw Dave and Dee with Larsen in Turin 2006, then C93 twice in Moscow 2006 (probably my favourite show, it was right on the cusp of the end of the "folk" era), then the Donau festival in 2007 (OMG!), then in Berlin and London 2008, then C93/NWW back to back in London 2010 for Dave's 50th, then Hypnopazuzu in London 2016. So I can't say I haven't had the full experience already but it was a special kind of magic every time and I love hanging out backstage with them, they're all such beautiful people. I would go back in a heartbeat and who knows maybe I will, it's just such a long haul on that stupid plane all the way from Australia :-(

If you can go, wow, by all and any means. To see Stapleton and Tibet together again, sharing a Nurse/C93 show? It makes me smile beyond the boundaries of my face to even think of it, though I've no hope of personally attending.

"This one doesn't sound like any other C93 album, but is undeniably and thoroughly Current 93" - my exact thoughts every time I hear a new C93 release. It's all the same source, just another face, another evolution, another contortion, but it's always so comforting and familiar to me in all its strange darkness and beauty.(I was toying with the idea of travelling to London for the show in October, then decided against it, and then just now I listened to the brand new single Bright Dead Star and got that deeply familiar melancholic feeling again and it pulled me back in and now I'm thinking I want to go and see them again after all!)
