El Acto

Presence - Act Of Faith (1992)
[Reality Records LOLX 3]

Presence was the band Lol Tolhurst formed upon being kicked out of The Cure and prior to his current project with his wife in Levinhurst. Together with Michael Dempsey (The Cure's bass player until 1979) and Gary Biddles (one time - 1982 - The Cure tour follower and ex- Fools Dance) he put on a band with some Cure in it albeit more electronic and housey. Should Biddles sing on a different note and not so much in a Smithy way their songs could be much better.
The CDsingle has one extra track (Soft). I'm still searching for it as well as of the other two singles.

Alex))) (whoever you are), this is for you...
Swans - One Of The Greatest... EVER...
1000 copies of this were issued nad the first 500 were numbered on red vinyl. It was released on occasion of the Swans concert in Bremen on 12mar97.
Cover art by Michael Gira. The back of the sleeve says that the recording was made on 12 March 1997 even though the title of the song says 1996.
The version of "My Buried Child" was taken directly from Jarboe's Sacrificial Cake - in fact, it even has a bit of the segue from the previous song.

Presence - In Wonder 12" (1991)
[Reality Records LOLX1]

Presence was a short lived project Lol Tolhurst formed after being kicked from The Cure in 1990. They released an album, "Inside". This 12" single was taken from that album as was "Act Of Faith". If anyone has that other single (7" or 12"), or "All I See", please help me ;-)
The vocals tried to mimic Robert Smith's and were courtesy of Gary Biddles. Gary Biddles used to follow The Cure around in 1982 and even sang on Forever sometimes, besides being part of Fools Dance, the band formed when Simon Gallup was away from The Cure between 1982 and 1985, along with Matthieu Hartley. Presence comprised other band members like Shelleyan Orphan's Roberto Soave on bass and Then Jericho's Chris Youdell on keyboards. Roberto Soave also played on The Associates alongside ex Cure bassist Michael Dempsey and when touring with Shelleyan Orphan supporting The Cure during The Prayer Tour in 1989 substituted Simon Gallup at least once (when the latter was ill).

When I got this I doubted these were the same Götterdämmerung that had released the excellent A Body And A Birthmark album and Rearm EP. But unfortunately yes they were and I was fearing a promissing newcomer was lost.
As it turned out, this was a pathetic try to change the style of the band into more danceable and stupid rocking industrial and dance mixes.
I didn't like the sound but I kept the object because it was nicely presented in a white vynil with transparent blueprint paper cover. Oh, and the speed is 33 ⅓...

There isn't a order - I listed the tracks alphabetically.

request #5

Fallen Apart - Resistance Dependence Defeat (1996)
[F.A. CD 2/96]

This was requested by Stephane about one year ago... Sorry Stephane. I posted requests #2,#3 and #4 and nothing else but I have written down what you need and hopefully it will be up in the near future. Stephane got me the second Womb album and their split release with Naevus... Hopefully I can find the nerve to post those here too...
Fallen Apart had a great sound but apparently they couldn't make it... Most probably because they had serious jobs and were serious people to be climbing on someone else's back... I saw them live in 1998 in London, at the Sacrosanct Festival, talked a bit with Dirk and then interviewed them to the fanzine.
I haven't heard from them in years. Before they were Fallen Apart they were called Funeral Address. And besides this self-release they've also put out the Misreality EP and a split 7" with The House Of Usher.
I do have a 13track folder I found on the web with 4 songs not found on their releases [besides 4 from Funeral Address, 2 from this release and 3 from the Misreality EP]. One of those tracks is a version of The Mission's Wake... Should you ask nicely I can even switch those 2 tracks by the split 7" and the complete Misreality EP and post everything here...

Second and Last and Nowhere

Gary Marx - Nineteen Ninety Five And Nowhere (2007)
[D-Monic d-m004]

I was looking for this since last fall when it was announced...
You should now Gary Marx... The Sisters Of Mercy founder together with Andrew Eldritch... (it was before Doktor Avalanche, mind you...). He left the Sisters after First And Last And Always and didn't even played at the Last Ever Gig (the one from Wake, R.A.H. 18jun85). He then went to form Ghost Dance with Anne Marie from Skeletal Family.
Apparently (and Gary explains it lengthy on his site), in 1995, Eldritch himself invited Gary to write some new stuff as a follow-up to FALAA... Gary then sent him some demos not hearing from him again...
A few time ago Gary dusted off the vaults and decided to finish the tracks with himself writing lyrics and providing vocals. Last year he remastered these songs and a french label released the album.
It would make (back in 1995) a nice way to get Eldritch back on record and would prevent us from suffering this big-thick-man-motorcycle-hard-rock-fm of the last 2/3 years...

Fields Of The Nephilim were great until they split in 1991. Then there were several different outfits that emerged from them but that never did nothing that I found worthy of a following. McCoy continued as a metal band in Nefilim, the other members formed Rubicon with a new, weird, vocalist, and then Last Rites. With the Fields reunion in 2000 nothing really changed because McCoy still wanted to pursuit the metal direction...
So... in 2002 when the "Fallen" album sessions ended in 2002, Tony Pettitt (Nephilim founder-bassist) put together a new band with drummer Simon Rippin (formerly of Sensorium, The Nefilim and Fields Of The Nephilim touring band), and Simon's former bandmate in Sensorium vocalist/guitarist Peter 'Bob' White. [Sensorium was formed when The Nefilim line-up fell apart in 1996]
Thus NFD (Noise For Destruction) was formed, comprising two other members for live apeearances. They still carry some of that Nephilim sound as you can experience with their debut release, this 3 track EP. Original Nephilim guitarist, Peter Yates, plays in one of the tracks (No Love Lost).
Enjoy and look for their new album (out now) called "Deeper Visions", which I was unable to hear yet.

Chris & Cosey - Pagan Tango (1991)
[ Play It Again Sam BIAS 179 LP]

I must confess that Throbbing Gristle never really did it for me. It must have been one of those cases in which you listen to something and you never want to hear anything else from that band ever again because you didn't like and think everything is like that. Even 20 years later you think the same and it can happen of hearing the same track and liking it.
Of course I recognized their importance, innovation and breaking through dareness in the history of music and especially their influence on bands I liked and praised and that even some of them dared into trails initially opened by TG.
I love some of its offsprings... Early Psychic TV, Coil and derived industrial bands and its incestuous dark-folk ramifications but I never really gave a chance to either TG nor to Chris & Cosey [formed by, if you don't know, half of TG's members, the couple comprised of Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti].
About 3 years ago I bought, for €0,20, a Chris & Cosey 12"EP (Take Five). I never listened to it because as I was always moving from place to place I never quite managed to organize my study/listening room as I wanted and didn't have a working turntable. I bought it because it was cheap and after all it was Chris & Cosey...
I finally listened to it about one month ago. In my new house I put a turntable to work and decided to listen to all the vinyl records I had not yet listened to (the music, not the vinyls...).
And the album blew my mind. I thought it was more than great or excellent.. I had to grab more of their stuff... And I downloaded perhaps all of their discography...
The next album I listened to was this 1991 release. "Pagan Tango" is the title and in itself reveals what's within.
After listening to the first few seconds I was bewitched again...
Take a peek and feel entranced too... now that Psychic TV and Throbbing Gristle are doing reunion tours... and Genesis P-Orridge is a full grown woman...

zShare or Sharebee? ...that is the question

I'm back in business and as I'll be having some free time in the near future, therefore you can expect some goodies (or not...).
I'm just trying to get a new host for the files as MediaFire is giving me many troubles...
I'll make some experiments with Sharebee and zShare as many people is using them.

I'll also try to reupload the old posts with 'broken' links. So rest assure everyone that wrote complaining/asking/begging/entreating... and never got an answer...

Next Saturday don't forget to shout: "Portugal, Portugal, Portugal"



I just popped in (through someone's unsecure wireless connection...) to let you all know that I'll be back in business in one week time (monday May the 5th) when I'll be having internet in my new house...


Go Back To The Dark

Go there before it disappears
due out in March 2008

Let's fall in churches far outside

I've created a new blog. It's called Forever or Forever Project.
Some 15 years ago when I was into tape trading I had this idea of compiling all the different versions of Forever (The Cure's live improv song) there were. Back then it was something difficult to do and to compile it analogically would deteriorate the sound already very bad. I don't remember if I ever did something about it...
Last monday something triggered my memories and I brought this project to life again.
At first it was just something I would compile. Then my friend Vimaranes said it would make a great post and two days later I realised it was too complicated to compile and choose from hundreds of versions. The best option was to create a blog and to post versions.
That's how The Forever Project Blog came to be...

Take Me To The Forever Project
