Posting for Cold Fell and Wode updates?

The Wode album is almost mixed.  I'll post a track on here when it's done.  I can't speak for Cold Fell, but they are playing this soon -

This was mentioned on Terminal Boredom the other day, but it's hard to think of a band which spawned so many good bands as T.G. after they split up.  Coil, Psychic TV, Chris & Cosey etc.  Every member went on to do something different and equally great.

Their three key albums are all really good:

The Second Annual Report (1977)
D.o.A: The Third and Final Report (1978)
20 Jazz Funk Greats (1979)

They were a band that sounded radically different live though, and as they recorded every gig there is LOADS of it.  I couldn't suggest finding a torrent of it all but I'd be surprised if one didn't exist.

Genesis P-Orridge is really good in an interview too.  Well worth a look on YouTube.

Heathen Earth is worth checking out if you want to delve into the live stuff, probably my favourite album of theirs overall.

Mentioned on here a while ago about a band made up of members of Wode and someone other bands. Turns out they were called Cold Fell, it was Esoteric Youth, Pine Barrens and Wode. Anyone got anymore info on them? They recording or just a "Live Experience"?
Found the video too.

Speaking of Wode, what're they upto musically? Demo was sick.

I believe Cold Fell have just recorded something.  They've got a bassist now so should be playing more.

As for Wode; we have a few gigs coming up in October and I think we're gonna record a full length soon.  Split with Pine Barrens is still happening.

Excited to hear the Satanic Dystopia album in full too - another Pine Barrens related band.

my eyes quickly glazed over reading that.

Swastikas For Noddy by Current 93 is probably my favourite neo-folk album.

Most Current 93 albums from the 90s pretty much define this genre for me.  Add to that the Nature and Organisation stuff too.

Really enjoyed the Hexvessel album from last year but its not strictly neo folk, more psych-doom-folk or something.

Primavera Sound starts next Thursday properly.  There's a few gigs in the run up including Godflesh on the 21st, not sure if you need a festival ticket to watch them though.

Great band.  'From The Lions Mouth' is probably my favourite.
