Now available to all, a new pressing of the extremely limited edition live CD previously attainable only on the band’s 2006 European tour. Contrary to the Grateful Dead reference in the title, Skullfuck is a tight recording of a single, intense November 2005 performance from NYC’s Knitting Factory. The set begins with an epic group arrangement of Jack Rose’s “Calais To Dover,” with Rose’s 12-string shadowed by Mike Gangloff’s fiddle, and the thick drone of Mikel Dimmick and Pat Best’s harmonium and srutis. The three-part “Bestio” suite follows, with the group moving to Tibetan bowls and gongs, building up a huge sheet of sound which peaks in a brief “encore” of wild gong smashing. This new edition is packaged in a gatefold “eco-wallet” with cover art designed by fabric and fiber-artist Emily Keown.
