DAIS036 Genesis P-Orridge & Stan Bingo – ‘What’s History’ LP $19
Originally released as a cassette on the cryptic Austrian tape label, Nekrophile, in 1983, this simplistic experimental recording was a industrial classic ahead of it’s time. Recorded in 1981 in the Hackney bedroom of Genesis P-Orridge, who at this point was romping through his final months in seminal industrial act Throbbing Gristle. Done as a spur of the ‘improvisational’ moment, Genesis was accompanied by then TG documentarian Stan Bingo (a.k.a. director Dan Landin) to try out some new equipment and spun into a unplanned composition. This original recording, due to the scarcity of its original format was somewhat forgotten, only to be coveted by collectors. This vinyl LP is an authorized reissue by both artists and limited to 500 copies.
DAIS031 Tor Lundvall – ‘The Shipyard’ LP $16
Edition of 500. Tor Lundvall has graced us with yet another remarkable album this year. Previously, Lundvall had introduced himself to Dais with his masterpiece album Sleeping & Hiding and struck lightning twice with the resilient The Seasons Unfold box set and now we are humbled to be crafting the strings with the curation of his most recent effort. The Shipyard was recorded during the dramatic season change-over of ’09/’10, during which time Lundvall was immersing himself in portrait studies of local maritime themes and nautical life at the docks. This instrumental collection of songs composed the soundtrack to the final renderings of these conceptional ideas put side by side, for which semblance he is most know for. Limited to 500 hand numbered vinyl copies (comes with a free MP3 download coupon) with artwork by Tor Lundvall.
