Ordo Templi Orientis cabinet member, David Tibet has announced a unique upcoming set of shows in Berlin later this year wherein he’ll be performing one night with his long running ensemble Current 93 and the next in the group he co-leads with erstwhile Killing Joke bassist Youth, HYPNOPAZŪZU. A recent missive from him states:
“We are OverSun and OverMoon to announce Sister and Brother Channellings by both CURRENT 93 and HYPNOPAZŪZU in BERLIN on October 20 & 21. The HYPNOPAZŪZU night will also include an after-show DJ set by the eternal Youth. The C93 night is honoured to announce that our Utter Special Guest is the perfect Alasdair Roberts. These Sidereal PickNicks take place at The Musikbrauerei (20th) and Apostel Paulus Kirche (21st).
“HYPNOPAZŪZU Channel on October 20 at The Musikbrauerei. The beautiful building is described by the website as “one of the last authentic locations in Prenzlauer Berg, the 120 year old Schneider Brewery. Tucked away between Greifswalder Strasse and the Volkspark Friedrichshain, the venue is one of the few buildings in Berlin still unspoiled by the tide of gentrification. The opening night of the festival will take place in the Säulenhalle and the Main Hall”.
“CURRENT 93 Channel on October 21 at the Apostel Paulus Kirche whose foundation was laid and which has survived today. The vestibule arches over the shoulders of the incoming pixies leading them to the chapel and its collection of beautiful frescoes. The church also hosts “classic” choral ensembles and a plethora of roaming musicians across Europe.
“To celebrate these SisterBrother Channellings in Berlin, we have commissioned from the soaring Bladud Flies! a CURRENT 93 / HYPNOPAZŪZU 12” lathe cut with a silkscreened cover.
“Limited to 200 copies, Side 1 features a previously unreleased version, with different vocals, of “SunFlower” from C93’s HoneySuckle Æons album, and side 2 features a magical new remix by Youth of HYPNOPAZŪZU’s “Christmas With The Channellers” from her Create Christ, Sailor Boy album.
“This lathe 12” will be available as part of a special ticket bundle, limited to 100 bundles, which includes the lathe, a weekend pass for the shows by CURRENT 93 and HYPNOPAZŪZU, and a guaranteed seat in the front 2 rows at the Apostel Paulus Kirche for the CURRENT 93 Channelling. The HYPNOPAZŪZU Channelling is in a seatless venue, so naturally seats cannot be allocated.
“The remaining 100 lathes will be available for sale online some time after the Channellings. We also intend to release the tracks for download, so that people who are unable to acquire the lathe will still be able to obtain the music.”
