A Love Of Shared Disasters
The first of a trilogy, featuring literary historical tales and personal stories of loss and love. Using a blend of modern amplified and Victorian era equipment, the band have produced a captivating sound that's simultaneously archaic and modern.
Back in 2004, the then Electric Wizard drummer Justin Greaves started recording songs and soundscapes he'd had in his head for several years using primitive recording techniques. Encouraged by good friend (and Mogwai bassist) these ideas formed the bones of Crippled Black Phoenix. Others followed, Panthiest members Andy Semmens and Kostas Panagiotou amongst others and solo folk songwriter Joe Volk, all contributed influences and skills to complete the line-up. During 2006 the band recorded their debut album in Bristol and signed to Invada Records . During the recording process old friends aligned and helped Greaves fully realize visions that had been pestering him for years. The result is a collection of self penned endtime ballads, the culmination of all the members' eclectic influences.
