Recordings of two live-shows from Toronto, June 2005.

У....The recording quality is sparklingly clear, and the setlist chosen for both nights features of some of Current 93's best and best-loved material, drawn from as far back as Island and Imperium, all the way through Thunder Perfect Mind, Of Ruine or Some Blazing Starre, All the Pretty Little Horses, Soft Black Stars, Sleep Has His House and even a cut off of Bright Yellow Moon. Along the way are some surprising wild cards from the back catalog that I've never heard performed live - including the haunting and powerful "They Return to Their Earth," "A Sadness Song" and "The Blue Gates of Death (Before and Beyond Them)," each faithfully rendered within a more limited instrumental palette. The second features very effective usage of noise loops and live electronic voice manipulations, which I can't recall hearing since the earliest phases of Current 93 live shows....
