Here’s a message from Nick:
‘K69996ROMA:EP’ is the shadow cast in the desert by the brutalist garret of ‘Font Of Human Fractures’ – like ‘Amnesiac’ to its ‘Kid A’, if you will. This takes the Pasolini-inspired ‘The Ballad Of K69996 Roma’ from that record and refracts it through a prism of… gay communist black metal chamber electronica,..
The EP consists of 8 diverse tracks, including ‘Asymmetric: A Forgery’, a track that was originally composed and recorded for ‘Font Of Human Fractures, but was omitted due to running time restrictions on the vinyl edition. ‘The Florist’, co-written with Kianna Blue (The Academy of Sun), proposes a kind of metaphysical tabula rasa, as the protagonist self-immolates in a flower shop, and ascends.
Channeling Pasolini’s communism, and the contradictions within his own ‘brand’ of it – alongside my own contemporarily-heightened anxieties and allegiances – the political angles are sharper on this release than on others. As such it felt right to include my interpretation of Robert Wyatt’s beautiful ‘Amber And The Ambergrines’ (sic) in the set,
Availably digitally and as a hyper-limited 4-panel CD digipak presented inside ACAB-silkscreened gold metallic envelope with bonus track in the form of a score printed on floral paper, with an original minature artwork by Nick Hudson. Also available in a limited edition of less-ornamented but very beautiful Cd Digipak.
I hope you’ll enjoy this companion to Font, and thank you all of you for your support.
