Boomkat Product Review:
A reissue of Current 93's 2004 compilation disc, bring together EPs Tamlin, Lucifer Over London, Misery Farm and a couple of excerpts from Looney Runes. Anyone not already a fully paid-up member of the David Tibet fanclub certainly isn't going to find themself converted by this compendium of apocalyptic canticles. However 'idiosyncratic' you might find his voice, there's little room for dispute that Tibet's a powerful writer and performer, as amply demonstrated by the torrents of diabolic verse rasped across occult classics like 'Lucifer Over London' and 'The Seven Seals Are Revealed At The End Of Time As Seven Bows' (that's only about half of that last song's full title). SixSixSix: SickSickSick stands as an enormously powerful collection of works, culled from an especially fertile period in Current 93's history, and in an age where we're inundated with tame satanic silliness from all manner of noise and black metal outfits, it takes the oddly camp, Vaudevillian incantations of Tibet and his acoustic guitar wielding accomplices to reach the real heart of darkness.
