Back in December 2107, Leyland James Kirby (The Caretaker) released a new album dedicated to Mark Fisher.
Entitled Take Care, It’s A Desert Out There, copies of the first album were first made available during Kirby’s performance at London’s Barbican on December 8th for an event organised by Unsound.
350 CD copies of the album were made available on Boomkat over the weekend, but quickly sold out. Each of them were signed and individually numbered. The album features previously unreleased material from Kirby, comprising a single, 48-minute long track.
You can hear it on YouTube and another general release of the album will appear sometime this year.
“But I have sometimes thought that a woman’s nature is like a great house full of rooms: there is the hall, through which everyone passes in going in and out; the drawing-room, where one receives formal visits; the sitting-room, where the members of the family come and go as they list; but beyond that, far beyond, are other rooms, the handles of whose doors perhaps are never turned; no one knows the way to them, no one knows whither they lead; and in the innermost room, the holy of holies, the soul sits alone and waits for a footstep that never comes.”
