LUCIFER - Dance with the Devil
From the dark abyss of British underground rock comes the near-mythological Lucifer. The anarchist antichrist has remained an enigma since his recordings appeared in the underground press in 1971. It was not until the 1990s that the true identity of Lucifer was revealed as filmmaker, musician, and all-around electronics whiz-kid Denys Irving, a close friend of the enigmatic Howard Marks, with whom he attended the University of Oxford in the late 60s. Irvings short films have now been salvaged, restored, and appraised, to help celebrate the work of a truly inspired and iconic genius. Dance with the Devil contains all of Irvings known Lucifer recordings, combining his all of his privately-pressed rarities for the first time. The debut Lucifer album, Big Gun, was originally released in 1972 and the ultra-rare second work, soundtrack album Exit, followed later that year. Dance with the Devil also collects the four Lucifer singles, originally released between 1971 and 73. This edition also boasts original artwork, numerous pieces of rare archival memorabilia and photos, and a detailed account of the man behind the music. For lovers of demonic rock, early electronica, or plain fuzz-driven proto-punk, this is a unique opportunity to sample the devil at work. Professionally remastered original recordings. - Stoned Circle.
