Between Two Fires



New Joshua Norton Cabal C20, Between Two Fires, available from Swim Harder. You can hear some of the second track on the tape at the myspace page and you can find their webstore somewhere there too.

This release represents the second chapter (the first being the unreleased split with the very excellent Disgust that Small Doses is putting out) in Norton's slightly new direction of having vocals and ocassional more musical flourishes.

Thematically it's about martyrdom; killing for a cause on one track and being killed for a cause on the other. Of course ultimately it's all just one guy yelling over a bunch of noise...

And seeing as i just quit my job to start a two year Masters program i need some money to keep myself in weird Nunslaughter records, thus i'm actually going to start selling some of the many releases that keep turning up in the mail that i play on. Currently i have no Blockade or Slaughter Strike releases though.

Here's the list at present:

Joshua Norton Cabal - Between Two Fires C20 $5
Joshua Norton Cabal/ Juhyo split CD $8
The Rita - Womanhood C20 $5 (i found a small amount of copies over the weekend hidden under a pile of dog toys)
Humiliation/ Nekrasov split CD $5

also currently waiting on receiving copies of the Joshua Norton Cabal - Inner Light CD that are somewhere in the mail system. I'll post about that when it's in my hands.

I never read Emergency, but I read Neil Strauss's book on being in the secret society of pickup artists. It was really funny and Courtney Love had far too big a part in it.

I have two questions:
1) With the inclusion of vocals into the newer releases, your utilization of sigils and of "visceral" content, I feel more to gain having lyrics. I can`t imagine the vocals are there for the sake of vocals. Any chance at including lyrics with releases?
2) where did the samples in"walpurga" come from?

Survivalist said...

yes, it was an absolute oversight on my part not including the lyrics

the samples in Walpurga are from The Wicker Man.

One it's my favourite film, two i try watch it every Walpurgisnacht (when i recorded the second half of the tape), three it vaguely fits with the theme of the track(killing ideological invaders in an ideological manner)
