An extraordinary offering from I.G.V. - an album of dark, truthful, beauty.

Deborah with help from Jwa (Joie Hinton) seers through the mists of Avalon, tells it how it is, how it was, and how it might be...

Part extraordinary kind of environmental Ghost Dance of longing, part sort of early experimental synth album/art installation. This album is like you'd imagine what tuning into recordings of the thought forms of the lost and found souls of Glastonbury itself might be like, or even the stones and land itself - it's by turns beautiful and hallucinatory, revelatory and uncomfortable.

'Here We Are On The Pig Farm' is inspired by, well, time on a pig farm and all that conjures up in the consciousness. The similarities between humans and pigs are many, as evidenced by the quest to use them to 'repair' us. Physiologically that may be feasible, but energetically and etherically - well, hmmmmm, not so sure about that.

In many myths and legends Ceridwen, keeper of The Sacred Circle or Cauldron revealed herself as a white sow...the pig or wild boar was the totem beast of the Goddess of Life, death and regeneration. The Boar has destinctive pyschopomp attributes, with tusks shaped like crescent moons.

Ceridwen, Taliesin, Robert Graves, Gilli'S-Myth, Gong and Mothergong - it's a path of light and dark - Here We Are on The Pig Farm. But what do we see? All this bares closer investigation. Space-rock it ain't.

Also available from I.G.V.: Magnetizer, Gematria ∼:0:∼ From Zero To Metacube
