Current 93 – Dogs Blood Rising (1984)

Dogs Blood Rising was my first experience with the work of Current 93. The record threw me at first, as there are no songs per se, just large, meandering passages of sound collages. “Falling Back In Fields Of Rape” heavily scratched my de ja vu (turns out the Death In June song with the similar title / lyrical layout to this is a “cover” of this ginormous undertaking of a track).

All in all, Dogs Blood Rising is disturbing, unsettling and weird. It comes across more like an art project than it does like music or even noise. I like what I hear though, and I will be exploring the project more in the future.
