ORGHAST "Every Seashell Sings Of Failure" 12" (Ltd. 300, Self Released) - Limited Edition Color Vinyl - Ltd.

300 copies. - Extra Heavy Cardboardsleeve & Innersleeve. - An obscure and progressive take on psychedelic punk rock'n'roll from this short lived project featuring members of Cross Stitched Eyes, Zygote, Christ On Parade, Hansons Brothers and Hammers Of Misfortune.

Recorded in 2013 now finally self releases. After narrowly escaping their respective dementia units, Shapland and Nichols rendezvoused with co conspirator Mike Brannon at an abandoned bunker in Bremen, Germany during the autumn of 2013.

The equipment and instruments used for the session were stolen while members evaded the authorities.

Although Shapland and Nichols had been detained in separate hospitals, most of the songs were constructed telepathically prior to the session.

Why Orghast (Nichols claims the name was revealed to him in a dream whilst under the influence of DMT) came together is anyones guess.

The trio had been publicly slandering each other for years, having crossed paths while touring with reviled underground music pariahs Cross Stitched Eyes/Zygote/Defekt Defekt (Shapland), Hanson Brothers/Fang/Plainfield (Brannon), and Hammers Of Misfortune/Jello Biafra & The Guantanamo School Of Medicine/Christ On Parade (Nichols).

Shapland mixed the 5 tracks on the run, breaking in to facilities across the EU after hours.

His misplaced efforts culminated with the release of very Seashell Sings of Failure' at the end of 2020.

A mysterious backer had the recordings pressed to vinyl with unknown-and undoubtably unscrupulous-intent.

Disgraced punk historian Duchess Von Shelby describes the EP as "pretentious, phantasmagorical post-punk nonsense" and actively petitioned to suppress its release.
