I have been reading a lot of biographies lately, in no particular order here are 5 that have touched me and that i recommend.
1) I'd rather be the devil- Skip James and the blues by Stephen Galt. 2) Black Sun: the brief transit and violent eclipse of Harry Crosby by Geoffrey Wolff. 3) A Magick Life:The Life of Aleister Crowley by Martin Booth. 4) The Ghastly One:The Sex-Gore Netherworld of filmaker Andy Milligan by Jimmy McDonough. 5)The Bloody White Baron by James Palmer.
Actually, i've only just started that last one but it's been interesting so far so i have high hopes for it.
If anyone is Nottingham this Saturday night (the 27th) and doesn't yet have crippling tinnitus then i suggest heading down to Chameleon to check out Molten Gods, Kaya King and Horacio Pollard. £3 in. It'll be fucking loud.
Here's a video of Burial Hex live at Roadburn 2009
Looking forward to seeing him at the next Rammel Club gig Pocahaunted Burial Hex Sun Araw Kogumaza
Friday 19th of June Chameleon Nottingham £7/5adv (Advance tickets will be available from the Rammel Club site via paypal shortly or Anarchy Records in Nottingham.) 8pm doors/8.30pm start.
And i'll hopefully catch his set at the Equinox Festival supporting Comus. Can't wait for that, 'First Utterance' is such a strange record, probably one of the few records that actually gives me the creeps.
