LATEST NEWS

EVERALL COMPILATION

John Everall is a musician who has been making music for many years under several guises, but most commonly as Tactile. John was diagnosed awhile ago with terminal stomach cancer.

All funds received will go to paying for John’s funeral expenses when he passes on.

The first time I met John was almost 10 years ago on Saturday 13th of November 2004, it was also a date (unbeknownst to us at the time) that happened to be the last day on this planet for Jhonn Balance.

We were both playing live at the ‘Burst Couch Event’ at Britons Protection in Manchester. I recall on the night of the show John told me on the way to the venue he had found a discarded badge in the street. With the passage of time the exact words on the badge have left my memory, but they were something along the lines of ‘Where is John?’. We also discussed Coil and how John created the wonderful line “There’s too much blood in my alcohol” which was borrowed from him by Jhonn Balance for the song ‘Heartworms’.

This is my cover of ‘Heartworms’, it is dedicated to John and all those I have known or know or will know who have been assaulted by the unforgiving demon they call cancer.

COMING THIS YEAR

Below are a list of releases coming out over the coming months. Most of these recordings are completed and the master copies are either with the manufacturer or label releasing them. At this time there are currently no definite release dates. Also in the pipeline are a few remixes and compilation appearances along with new music from Nurse With Wound.

REACHED PREMATURE MATURITY (45 rpm) | LATHE CUT 7″ + DOWNLOAD | 2014
Originally to be released for my 45th birthday this recording was created to mark my 45th year on the 11th of March 2014.
In conjunction with this download release is a 7″ test pressing, housed in screen printed sleeve with stamped labels in an edition of 45 copies.
The download has 11 tracks all of which are 4 minutes and 5 seconds in length aside from the last track which is 4 minutes 10 seconds long. The total running time is 45 minutes, being a contrived reference to my age. The majority of track times (4.05) are a further allusion to my age and the number of tracks (11) being my date of birth.
The 7″ has remixed versions of track 6 on the A side and track 9 on the flip side, representing (19)69 – which denotes the year I was born. The overdubs used on these mixes were created by an i-Pad version of the VCS 3 synthesizer. The original VCS 3 was created by the Electronic Music Studios (London) Ltd. (EMS) and issued in 1969 (again, another reference to the year of my birth).
The download comprises of 11 tracks that were made on an i-Pad using a virtual ANS synthesizer. The images imported or drawn on to the synth were all references to either my date of birth, age, significant places and my name.
I used the ANS sound specifically for the reason that it has the name ‘Ans’, which in French translates as years. The word ‘years’ being a reference to the concept behind this recording.
EXPECTED TO GO ON SALE/SHIP MID AUGUST 2014.
