hauntology parish newsletter (July) - Woodbines & Spiders

Talked about for ages, finally reached fruition -  Woodbines & Spiders is a collaboration between Ian Hodgson (Moon Wiring Club) and Jon Brooks (The Advisory Circle).

Excellent as you'd imagine, hewing mostly to the "musty fragments" side of the H-spectrum (think Roj,  Sketches and Spells Focus Group, or indeed some of MWC's danker, more disassembled swatches of atmosphere)

Listen  to and watch "Visitation" here, and  check out this audio-sampler "profusely spliced" from the album

Collage is the M/O - indeed the phrase "woodbines and spiders" is not unlike a terribly,  even terminally, English take on Lautreamont's "as beautiful as the chance meeting on a dissecting table of a sewing machine and an umbrella" (itself appropriated by Nurse With Wound).

The concept, though, seems to be real estate meets ruin porn - with W&S as agents specialising in houses with perturbing atmospheres and sitting tenants from other planes.
