Boomkat Product Review:
First ever vinyl reissue of Current ’93’s classic Thunder Perfect Mind , finding David Tibet approaching the height of his powers, flanked by a legendary coterie of co-conspirators; Shirley Collins, Steven Stapleton (Nurse With Wound), Douglas P (Death In June), Micheal Cashmore, Jhonn Balance (Coil), Rose McDowell (Strawberry Switchblade) and James Mannox.
Thunder Perfect Mind takes its title from a Gnostic poem written in the ancient Coptic text, and was among the first records to feature David Tibet fully exploring an aspect of what became a key influence on his recordings. The album also acts as a sister record to Nurse With Wound’s 1992 LP of the same name, and is perhaps best known for its divine title track, as well as songs such as the epic Hitler as Kalkhi (SDM), which Tibet dedicates to “my father, who fought Hitler”, and the All The Stars Are Dead Now, which is based on a prophetic revelation given to Tibet from a reading of the Planh of William Blake.
Still, peerless in its field - the known universe.
