Limited edition of black women's t shirt / September 2011
CURRENT 93 was founded in 1982 by David Tibet and is an eclectic and idiosyncratic English hallucinatory and apocalyptic artistic project. David Tibet is the only person permanently present in the group, although Steven Stapleton of Nurse With Wound, whom David met in 1983 at London’s “Equinox Event”, has appeared on virtually all of Current 93’s releases.
Tibet has worked with many individuals since he formed C93, such as Michael Cashmore, Steve Ignorant (Crass), John Balance (Coil), Nick Cave, Marc Almond, Antony Hegarty, Sebastian Horsley, Andrew W.K., Rickie Lee Jones, Shirley Collins and Bonnie “Prince” Billy.
Current 93 has many faces, but has always primarily reflected Tibet’s beliefs and obsessions. Recently his vision has grown increasingly personal and intense, inspired by his translations of Coptic non-canonical and Gnostic texts. Other important influences upon his work have been the New Testament, the works of Count Stenbock, cats, the Kabbalah, seahorses and Birdsong in the Empire.
Their most récent album is Baalstorm, Sing Omega.

When the May Rain Comes
a cover of a track by Sand, whose work has had a profound affect on Tibet’s work, first appeared on Current 93’s influential album Thunder Perfect Mind. Also appearing on this 12'' is an alternate version of the same track from a CD single which accompanied the first 1,000 copies of Tibet and Stapleton’s release of material by Sand, Ultrasonic Seraphim.
This 12'' is part of a series of releases from rotorelief comprised of new albums from Sand, a reissue of their album Golem and albums by Nurse with Wound and Current 93.
“INXOM” is the series of albums from Sand, the series title having one letter for each album. So, 5 albums of Sand are to be released.
Two more albums from Nurse with Wound and Current 93, two groups who helped bring to light the mystery that is Sand, increase the number of letters in the title. With these last two albums the series becomes INXODEM.
His First Steps – Golem - Desert Navigation - Sylph Ballet – North Atlantic Raven. And Chromanatron by Nurse With Wound and When the May Rain Comes, cover versions of Sand by Current 93.
