Rich man, your day is done, it’s all over, oh yes.
My king is coming to bring order to this land.
You have built your house on the sinking sand.
See how you play into Satan’s hand…
A new mixtape from Chris Farrell for Blackest’s Krokodilo series.
90 minutes of tough-like-iron roots and deep, minimal digi sufferers to cast out the vampire; hand-picked by one of the UK’s finest selectors, from one of the UK’s finest collections. Runs the gamut from the sombre to the celebratory, the mystical to the murderous, the bracingly direct to the dazed and dizzyingly dubwise.
Farrell is the founder and owner of the Idle Hands record store and label operating out of Stokes Croft, Bristol. Blackest Ever Black first encountered Chris back in the early 2000s, when he was working behind the counter at Imperial Records (R.I.P.), and we (BEB) were sheepishly buying second-rate electroclash records. We became close friends, and to say he taught us much of what we know would be rather an understatement. 2016 will see us launch a new imprint together, Silent Street, of which more in due course.
