Current 93 - Sing Omega (2014)


This week, after a mere 8 years of waiting, I received David Tibet's lyric book 'Sing Omega'. It looks gorgeous, and you should probably get it. What you won't be able to get, unless like me you pre-ordered it and paid for it all those years ago, is this cardboard bonus CD, throwing together some odds and ends from Current 93's vast discography, some previously released (but hard to find), others never available before. I don't see why you shouldn't be allowed to hear it though, so here you go. No title mentioned anywhere, so I just went with the title of the book it came with. Not to be confused with the 2010 album 'Baalstorm, Sing Omega', of course.
Be warned: it starts with 20 minutes of Tibet talking into a dictaphone about some ideas for a novel, and singing some a cappella stuff. For hardcore Current 93 fans! ;-)

  1. Thank you...

    I missed the pre-order on the book (though still managed to score a copy), and didn't even realize this existed.

  3. To quote Johnny Rotten "Ever get the feeling you've been cheated "

    I'm thoroughly disappointed with the special edition of this book, after eight years waiting for it to be released and various promises of a publication date. Not to mention the £350. It's probably the worst presented C93 production visually and value for money that David has released since the inception of C93. Which surprises me as this is the whole of David's work up to the present date. Those of you that feel you have missed out because the special edition is long sold out. Thank your Soft Black Stars you missed it.

    Mine will be up for sale as soon as i have time to get round to it. And before i get slagged off, that was not my original intention, I have enough clutter and don't have the space for somethig that I hold no emotional Value to
