Highbrow Lowlife

Inspired and fueled by White Stains' successful concert together with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge in Gothenburg in late June, me and Thomas Tibert have decided to revitalize the dormant label Highbrow Lowlife. It was never really sent to the final rest, but after the limited CD release by Sinnelag, Själabränning (2011), it was definitely time to take a break.

But... We have so much material in the archives and now also a much better distribution network for digital releases, so there's really nothing there to stop Highbrow Lowlife from becoming a very smooth vehicle for our musical expressions – new as well as old ones.

There will be physical/tangible releases too, mainly vinyl, but that takes slightly longer to strategize. So we'll begin slowly but surely by making as much material as possible available digitally.

The first release will be an EP called I Travel. Genesis Breyer P-Orridge reads a trippy poem to music that was originally made for our joint album Wordship (2004), but the EP also contains two remixes. The release date is August 15th, so stay alert!

We have just now fixed our own YouTube channel, where we'll post old as well as new films by Cotton Ferox, White Stains and other relevant acts/people. The first video posted is I Travel F-Side. Enjoy! To see it in a slightly better quality, please go straight to the clip.

A Highbrow Lowlife website is also being structured and will hopingly see the light of day late August.

Thanks for being interested. Stay tuned and you'll be provided with a lot of mind bending music!
