„The revolution will come soon. All this will be destroyed. The world must be destroyed. Amen. For years I have been waiting for Antonin Artaud's mad words to catch up with the actual world and THANK GOD for the virus - here it finally is. This is The World Must Be Destroyed.“
Originally recorded during the 'Who Do You Love' sessions back in 2017 - the title track even intended as main single but for various reason ended up as an outtake (!) - these songs are among my personal favourites from this period. They are all inspired by Antonin Artaud's insane masterwork - his 'biography' of child emperor Heliogabalus. Hallucinatory, sadistic, overly sexual and above all just completely nutters.
Produced by the Tall Man himself and the Dark Diva Karin Park. Musicians include Dana Schechter (Insect Ark/Swans), Andrew Liles (Current 93/Nurse With Wound) and tubaist Kristoffer Lo (Highasakite / Motorpsycho). Greg Norman recorded the songs at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago. After 20 years of doing ÅRABROT I have learnt one important thing: In order to rebuild it must all be destroyed.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - VINYL ORDERS
Please note that we do our best to protect vinyl records ideally for shipping, using our custom made mailers and additional cardboard squares. However, we can not guarantee that no damage on the way occurs. Ordering is at one's own risk. Vinyl might be delivered unsealed as we have to open copies to check vinyl colours, if not sufficiently labeled by the distributor / label.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PRE-ORDERS
Pre-order means that your item will not ship before it's release date and so will all other items on your order. We do not split up orders, everything will be shipped all at once together in one package.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PRODUCT IMAGES
Please note that most of the images in our store are not actual photos but mock ups. These mock ups are digital representations of what we expect the final product to look like - however they do not represent the final product. Final vinyl pressings, prints, etc. may look slightly different.
