ICE and SNOW / Merzbow (2) / A Handful of Dust (1)

Shadow -
After Shadows
One was the first here ?
In the End ...

Live in Lille 2014

Plus a re-issue
of the very limited and important
A Handful of Dust -
"Topology of a Phantom City"(1997)
on tape (300 ex.)

Topology of a Phantom City was a cassette originally released in 1996 on Bruce Russell’s glorious Corpus Hermeticum label and this reissue captures the spirit of the original version by…well…by also being on cassette.

For these recordings, the core members of AHOD, guitarist Bruce Russell (The Dead C) and violinist Alastair Galbraith are joined by Peter Stapleton (Terminals, Pin Group, Scorched Earth Policy) on percussion and synthesizers. Both sides are sprawling paean’s to the glories of improvised invention, going through waves of menacing intensity and freeform scrawl.

Includes unlimited streaming of A Handful of Dust - Topology of a Phantom City via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
