Is this… relevant?

WHAT THE BLOODY HELL IS GOING ON seems to be the perpetual question as we await the results of the US elections, enter a second Covid lockdown and wonder what difficulties await when we leave the EU’s single market and customs union in less than two months’ time. Strangely enough, our successive collaborations with artist and writer Adam Stone have touched on all three subjects: In The Year 2039 imagined a world ravaged by the consequences of a continued 45th presidency, while Retreat To Your Bunker (Lockdown 2020) now serves as a memento of the novelty and alarm of the original lockdown in spring: this time around it’s cold, it’s dark and it’s hard not to wonder where our supposed leaders’ priorities lie.

As for Brexit, well you’ll have to wait for our next record to hear about that amongst other things. But right now, you may be pleased to know that once again it’s BANDCAMP FRIDAY, starting at midnight US Pacific time, which is 8am GMT (UK time) and 9am Central European Time; during which not only does more of your money buying music and associated merchandise on Bandcamp go direct to the artists, but many are in turn donating these proceeds to worthy causes. In our case we are donating our download sales to the Trussell Trust food bank network, and all our downloads are Pay-What-You-Want. So please give generously if you can, and enjoy some Dead Sea Apes audio content to boot.

Meanwhile for fans of circular pieces of plastic, there will soon be exciting news concerning not only a new release but also various items of our back catalogue. Stay tuned, watch the skies, etc…
