In addition there's a cassette for the Tapeworm label (Stephen O'Malley/Simon Fisher Turner/Philip Jeck) on the way and the outfit are currently recording their full-length debut for DEEP MEDi. Unique and unbound by generic constraints, Old Apparatus loiter on the vanguard of contemporary bass music.
PYE CORNER AUDIO
With his 'Black Mill Tapes' series, Pye Corner Audio has administered a shot of ectoplasmic energy to the evanescent marshlands of haunted audio, bringing elements of Carpenter soundtrack, glassy electronic drone and cosmic disco into the mix. 'Black Mill Tapes Vol.3' ("British Cosmic" - Warren Ellis) is PCA's current release and represents a further evolution of the outfit's unsettling sound ++STOP PRESS++ The Outer Church has just received the exciting news that the Head Technician is currently working on his debut PCA album for the esteemed Ghost Box label.
A longtime friend and associate of The Outer Church, Kemper Norton is the South Coast's finest - indeed only - proponent of slurrtronic folk sounds. Blending acoustic instrumentation with synthetic sonorities and his own spectral vocals, he conjures a sound suggestive of a rural Coil. Recently spotted wassailing on the allotment, he brings his finely-textured twisted roots music to The Outer Church for the third time.
PLUS FILM DOUBLE BILL: WARREN ELLIS: CAPTURED GHOSTS & GRANT MORRISON: TALKING WITH GODS
Courtesy of Respect! Films, The Outer Church presents an unmissable double bill of acclaimed documentaries illuminating the lives and careers of two visionary British writers and countercultural icons. Directed by Patrick Meaney, 'Talking With Gods' and 'Captured Ghosts' were produced with the full cooperation of Morrison and Ellis and incorporate interviews with the artists alongside colleagues and contemporaries including Helen Mirren, Douglas Rushkoff, Joss Whedon, Mark Waid, Geoff Johns, Patton Oswalt, Stoya, Matt Fraction, Katelan Foisy and more. The influence of Morrison and Ellis on The Outer Church is immense; this double feature is intended as a tribute to their brilliance.
