12" Smokey Lp White and Bone
Printed Innersleeve
Limited Edition 200 copies

The album distills a lifetime of extra-musical experience and readings, in particular Gnostic texts, Philip K Dick, and the alchemical phases of the Magnum Opus, starting with the initial Nigredo; a fundamental step, that was also chosen as the main image for the album artwork.
The title, "The Black Iron Prison", is drawn from the Philip K Dick concept of an all-pervasive system of social control; a description that is particularly apt and meaningful in 2020.
Released via Subsound Records on 6th November 2020
Publishing: Narcotica

It was recorded in complete solitude at Thighpaulsandra's Aerial Studio in Wales, using a heavily processed electric bass, synthetizers, sampler and, of course, mixer, and recorder.
