CCC

BRIAN CONNIFFE / SUZANNE WALSH / DIARMUID MACDIARMADA LP

Side A

Landslide
A Shining Ache
Holy Ground (Short Instrumental Mix)

Side B

Beneath White Sheets
Not The Night

The fourth entry in the series of six 12”/MLP releases. "Brian Conniffe is a cross-genre, experimental musician who has worked with a long list of collaborators including Nurse With Wound, notable for a style which fuses the darkest psychedelia with disquieting ambience. Suzanne Walsh is a visual artist and musician, whose practice involves musical collaborations with various artists as well as her own solo artistic work, which crosses over between art and music worlds. Never sure what he should be wearing, polymath Diarmuid MacDiarmada has been working in and around the Dublin music scene for far too long. He has been in more bands than he cares to remember and several that he tries to forget.”  This features five songs of a strictly twilight hue, merging beauty and those subtle spaces where it appears poised to collapse at any given point. Limited to 250 and going to the plant during August 2013.  Available for the bargain price of £10.00 plus postage directly from Lumberton Trading Company. Pre-Order at richo_j@hotmail.com

Covers are semi-homemade with pasted-on artwork featuring artwork by Dolorosa Delacruz.
