06/12/09 – Wave Chaser – ‘Philosophic Moments’ out today
We’re particularly gutted to announce this MPFree release, coming as it does in upsetting circumstances. Philip Antoniou (Wave Chaser) was a very good friend to several of us here at Bad Sekta, in many more ways than we care to count. He passed on peacefully in the last few days and so we thought he’d like us to make available the first of two magnum opus, his ‘Philosophic Moments’ album (meticulously crafted in 200?). It’s definitely worth a listen and contains a lot of careful thought. Here’s to Phil!

24/11/09 – Phuq – ‘More Missed Worlds’ out today
We probably need a better standard of quality control, but here’s Phuq – ‘More Missed Worlds’, the fifth instalment in our run of ultra-limited (25 copies), 8CM CD EPs. 6 more highly ridiculous and fragmented tracks written between 2005-2008. £2 from our stall (selected gigs only) or mail us quick and we won’t charge any postage 🙂

01/09/09 – Dave Stitch – ‘Rave New World’ out today
Dave Stitch has kindly let us release an updated and free, MP3 version of his 2007 album ‘Rave New World’. Due to Various idiocies we fucked up a planned CD release of this and so appreciate the chance to release it now – think growling basslines, twisted synths and breakbeat action, all in Stitch’s inimitable style… Click here for the free download link.
30/07/09 – Phuq – ‘Conspiracykore’ out today | Various – ‘Community’ delayed
Phuq’s new MPFree EP ‘Conspiracykore’ is out today – 8 tracks of his trademark weirdly hardcore, etc. electronics, all with a ‘vaguely political slant’. Listen for yourselves by downloading for free from here…
Other news; apologies to all concerned, but we’ve had to delay the next MPFree compilation, ‘Community’, due to some rather late submissions and thus artwork shenanigans. Fingers crossed, all systems should be go by the end of August, so keep in touch for more info…
07/09 – Live dates | ‘Flump My Mong #3’ and ‘Roo’s World’ zines published
Just updated the live page – appearances from Fractional in Belgium, Zeropointenergy in Brazil, The Fez! and weyheyhey !! in Edinburgh and Phuq and The Fez! in Colchester, amongst others. Why not come experience the joys?!
Our publishing imprint, Twenty Third, presents its latest needless booklet/ e-zine. Titled ‘Flump My Mong #3’, it’s a small but wicked collection of some of DJ Ultimate Kevin’s scarily imaginative, horribly surreal art, compiled by Phuq. Download as PDF from the Twenty Third site or pick up an ultra-limited print copy from our info stall (at selected gigs).
Phuq has also bodged a short animation using some of the characters from ‘Flump My Mong #3’. You can watch ‘Roo’s World’ on our YouTube page, although you have no right to complain about the rudimentary lip-syncing!
06/06/09 – Release news/ Twenty Third/ Elfkore
The debut of our long-awaited ‘Community’ MPFree compilation fast approaches – (tentative!) release date is 23 July, so keep checking back or signup to the mailing list.
Phuq – ‘Conspiracykore’ (MPFree EP) is coming 23 August with the long-promised release of Intonamori’s ‘Ear Weevils 2’ (MP3 EP) soon after that.
We now have a dedicated mini-site for our new publishing imprint, Twenty Third, which will offer zines, pamphlets and eventually books exploring subcultural shenanigans of Various kinds. Second offering is the slightly angry zine ‘Lies’, with the ‘Ketamine: A Primer’ booklet and ‘God Told Me To’ zine next up.
Our (defunct) netlabel Elfkore is now permanently archived as a subdomain of this site, rather than its former ‘.tk’ domain. Check elfkore.badsekta.com for adventurous EPs from Lastboss and Phuq.
We’ve also just commenced work on the next incarnation of this website, so more on that at some point in the near future…
