FROM DOMINION NEWS #2 (2002)

The compilation below is also due out any day now, and features a rare live recording from Witch-Hunt (i.e. Blood Axis in a more acoustic, quasi-traditional guise, collaborating in this case with In Gowan Ring).
This track, a rousing version of an old English traditional ballad, is extracted from the live recordings that appeared on the Witch-Hunt CD that was only available in Portugal. To obtain the Hand/Eye release, consult the website address given.

Title: “Hand/Eye”
Format: 2CD compilation
Label: Hand/Eye
Catalog #: H/E010

Hand/Eye

The Hand/Eye label has been bringing the world modern experimental-folk and psychedelic music since the early 1990s. Hand/Eye has forged a unique and varied catalog which, along with parent label, Dark Holler, has given the world everything from deep-space astral explorations to traditional fiddle tunes.

For the 10th Hand/Eye release we’ve gathered friends and associates from the world over, hand-picked for this celebration of music. All of the artists have provided exclusive material for this compilation. There are no convenient names for this gathering of music: Psychedelia, wyrdfolk, acid-folk, experimental, astral-folk… call it what you will, it cannot be bottled under one small label.
