An Exquisite Corpse is functioning again.
There is a new 10 minute NWW composition available for download at: www.burrenuniversality.com/nww . "Old Man Vox Albation" appears to have been made during the recording of Bright Yellow Moon / Purtle. The musicians on it are David Tibet: Vocals; Steven Stapleton: Mix and Sound Manipulation; Michael Cashmore: Guitar; Chris Wallis: Sitar. According to Brian Conniffe, "Burrenuniversality.com was set up by the Irish government, in order to provide every home in the Burren area of County Clare, Ireland, with an internet connection and computers. The reason is mainly to do with the very isolated nature of that part of Ireland. Stapleton lives there, so that's way that stuff is up there. I wouldn't count on it turning into any sort of substantial website, however."
February 2001Automating volume 2 and Drunk With the Old Man of the Mountains are still in the pipeline allegedly. With any luck, they'll be out later 2001.
