C93 – Thunder Perfect Mind reissue

Durtro, through World Serpent, release a double CD digifile edition of one of C93’s most popular and enduring albums, ‘Thunder Perfect Mind’. Available in the second week of November. The cover and booklet include: the original artwork, featuring Tibet’s face, on the digifile cover; the Louis Wain cat that replaced Tibet’s face on the second edition; newly reproduced photos from the original negatives; new Kalki artwork and the texts to all of the tracks in a full-colour 28 page booklet.

Disc 1 consists of the studio album itself. All tracks have been remastered from the original tapes.

Disc 2 contains all the studio out-takes from the TPM sessions, previously only available as tracks on the ‘Emblems’ and ‘Calling for Vanished Faces’ compilations, as well as one previously unreleased, though very short, a capella piece that was left off the TPM studio album, ‘Red House’. After a 10 second silence, live versions of songs from TPM that were previously available on the ‘As the World Disappears?’ live CD (which is now deleted) are added. Once again, all tracks have been remastered from the original tapes.
