Ooh, an actual verifiable real brand-spanking-new EP release by the mysterious F-lithium, presented by The Abominable Mr Tinkler!
“…This Place Could Be My Undoing” is an uneasy combination of eerie synthesised dark ambience – with just a touch of industrial noise and guitar-originated drones. Much less beat-orientated than previous releases from F-lithium, it’s a single, long-form piece and is available in both digital (FLAC and MP3) and limited edition CD formats. Art by Valery Milovic and additional guitar by Mick Newman.
:-s We now return to our interminable delay at getting anything new out…apologies, life is unfortunately getting in the way on several fronts at present. At least you’ve over a decade’s worth of releases and live sets to keep you occupied while we sort our shit out!
Well, we’ve just about made it to twelve years old, albeit unfortunately without the intended birthday release (it’s apparently coming any day now – don’t work with animals, children, or musicians).
Instead, here’s a lovely 50% discount off of all products in our store – simply enter the code BS12BIRTHDAY when prompted at the checkout to grab a proper bargain. The offer ends Monday 27th November, so don’t hang about!
Now, we know we’ve posted this a few times previously, but Phuq‘s ‘Halloween 2012 Horror Soundtracks Mix’ really is a bit of a treat for fans of proper horror, including as it does some fearful compositions from Goblin, Claudio Simonetti, Joseph LoDuca, Fred Myrow and Malcolm Seagrave, Alan R. Splet and David Lynch, and others!
“Good evening, fellow necromaniacs… This unholy night brings us a dreadful cacophony of exquisitely horrific soundtracks to your worst nightmares, selected for your horrification by that eldritch spirit fool Phuq…”

To keep your ear in while we crack on with the above, why not check out Obese‘s recent ‘Extra-Saturated’ mini-album (choose-your-price – £0.00-£4.99)?
Just a quick one to let you know that we’ve recently updated our Live Sets & Mixes page to include the bulk of the Bad Sekta-related sets from the amazing underground music resource that is Ill FM! We’re leeching their files, so thanks Mark P.
In all the excitement over getting the new site online and our new Obese release out this week, we forgot to mention that as part of our relaunch we’re offering £1.50 off orders of our ‘BADvinyl001’ 12″ vinyl (with FLAC & 320KBPS MP3 instant downloads, stickers, info sheet, etc.)!

Welcome to the new Bad Sekta website! Plus proper ye olde integrated web shoppe and such, at long last. Please have a mooch about, check out the site, and let us know if you’ve a particularly strong opinion on the changes we’ve made. In a nutshell, with this build we’re aiming for greater compatibility and functionality across devices, improved accessibility, and keeping things as DIY as possible (e.g. providing downloads from this site, rather than via a third-party). We’ve still a few tweaks to do (especially with regards to loading speed), but we hope you like!
Happily, full-on label reactivation appears unavoidable, with a new Bad Sekta digital release imminent on the 13th May from Obese (bringing the bass with a wicked mini-album of dancefloor booty-smashers), plus more promised over the coming months from label veterans The Abominable Mr Tinkler, Phuq and others! More info anon…
🙂 HAPPY VENERATION OF THE BASTARD NAZERENE – Allow us to present you with a special MPFree Christmas release from The Abominable Mr Tinkler (presenting F-lithium), the long-lost classic ‘Grands Classiques’…
‘…Rumoured to be cut in the aftermath of one of the most sensational tours of lecture halls in the UK, ‘2001 Grands Classiques’ has now surfaced after being lost for well over a decade…The recordings are thought to have been made during a period spent researching the effects of imbibing peculiar chemicals and sleep deprivation, likely leading to the feelings of paranoia and morbid curiosity one senses whereupon hearing it. These recordings make for an unusual listen; classical string quartets collide with bubbling analogue synthesizers whilst wild winds blow and stuttering distorted percussive sounds crash and appear to tear through the space-time continuum.’
Today marks the ninth birthday of the amorphous, cosmically terrifying, and wonkily seductive entity that is Bad Sekta. 🙂 Please allow us to extend our thanks to you once again for your continued support and attention! We never thought that we would get this far, and we do this because of you.
If you’ve not bought one of the first 100 records, you won’t have the 12 track digital bonus album that came with them, so as a small gift on our birthday, why not download the Hekula, Meme, and Ronin tracks from that release? Available as a 320kbps MP3 freebie, for one week only!
