Electric M - From The New Album KOKORO

Children of The Sun

beautifulnoiseskin's version of the Hawkwind classic
recorded high on whisky and for the love of a great song.
Available from our bandcamp page for our album BLACK TREES.

Beautifulnoise/skin - Vocals & Lead Guitar
Simon Rennie - Bass, Balalaika, Acoustic Guitar
This track is available as as free download, as we have no wish to steal from The Hawks.

Video is taken from an ancient concert vhs, & various home movies recorded on Solstices over the years. The Stonehenge footage is from 1984, and yes that really is me right at the beginning of the film all long haired and loping along.

Inspired by Derek Jarman & Coil this is a homage to my favourite work by these two mighty artistic forces.

This track is not yet available in any other form but will appear on a forthcoming album…

Beautifulnoise/skin & Merzbow

Our musical self managed to tame the mighty Merzbow into a collaboration of simple beauty.

Back in 2001 when we made hands/birds we did three distinct mixes of the title track. Because of the limitations of the time as the album was to be a 10" vinyl we had to issue the shorter mix, which was actually quite different from what we would have liked to put out.

Finally thanks to the internet and our bandcamp page we have at last Hands/Birds the way it should have been. We have been into the old multitracks and have dusted down the 21 minute version of the main track which you can hear here.

All of our albums are available for any price you would like to pay, even for free.... share and enjoy.

The Learning Skin

Back in the day I used to have a musical alter-ego.. in fact I still create strange little things which might be classed as music from time to time.. but here is our first album from 1998 - The Learning Skin.. all twisty, organic drones, mangled samples and weird shit.. It works very well late at night.. (and clever observers will notice the title track and spoken piece is from Full Blood.. yes I was working on the book even back then.. ) The album is available for free... though you can donate some funds if you are so inclined...

There are two albums still missing from the discography which I may still release someday.. 'Equivalent Wish' just never came out even though it had a deal with a label and everything.. and 'The Lamb's Nursery' fell by the wayside because merzbow and I just couldn't agree on a final shape, so there may be a demerzbowized way of finishing this off maybe one day.. though some naughty person did share it on soulseek when that was still a thing..

hmm maybe not....

Current 93's IMPERIUM II by Beautifulnoise/skin

The change of our name to beautifulnoise/skin marks the entry into a new phase of creation for us. 

As in every art this begins with honouring the past. We have been working to restore our original releases, and have set up a bandcamp page.

In celebration of the changes we are sharing our version of Current 93's wondrous Imperium II which has been cleaned up & restored for this new digital release phase.
