Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: “The group’s name Hypnopazūzu brought together 3 beings, and 2 languages, that move me and delight me and trouble me. Hypnagogia. Hypnos. Pazūzu. The Coptic language. The Akkadian language,” he explains. “Youth kindly allowed me to choose the name, on the basis that we called the album Create Christ, Sailor Boy, which was a line of mine that he liked, and which opens the album.”
It seems apropos to open this with the words of David Tibet. This album reunites of two multi-talented and eclectic musicians and artists last together on Current 93’s classic debut Nature Unveiled; David Tibet (Current 93, erstwhile eschatologist and so much more) and Youth (Killing Joke and all the rest with a terrifyingly eclectic cv of production credits from Alien Sex Fiend to Paul McCartney…).
Perfect to begin as not only does the music here provide the summoning space for his words but also because to me it seems to encapsulate the collaboration at work and at play here. An entrance of almost innocent accessibility that opens, blooms and displays staggering levels of complexity, hints at hidden mystic meanings and simply slips through your fingers as you finally, fully wake. If you’re a fan of either artist then I expect that you are already at the Youtube video below. If not acquainted then I shall attempt to… help? Clarify?
That is beyond me.
Describe. Hopefully. Hopefully. Maybe.
