Leyland Kirby - Death of Rave (Additional) & (Source)


Recommended Posts


Limited time only. Issued on V/Vm Bandcamp.

Made available again for a limited time due to the number of requests for it in full, this has not been remastered or altered in any way from its original 2006 upload and originally it was only available as an MP3 download. Update, immerse, remember, erase.

Originally released in 2006. This is the full unedited and long unavailable 'The Death Of Rave' project. From its original press release. "An audio soup of half remembered rave anthems featuring all of the hits and many misses from the golden age of the Northern U.K. rave scene. From the run down Blackburn warehouses through to the M6 service stations enroute to Shelly's in Stoke the people came. The rave legacy no longer lives on, the corpse of rave bares no resemblance to those heady days in the late eighties and early nineties."

I want this but I struggle to listen to everything that I purchase as it is.  Not sure how I will do 7 hours worth of new (to me) material justice tbh!



just realised its pay what you like... awesome work

Had heard bits of this before but had it in my head it was one of his lesser releases for some reason....

But fuck me if it isn't brilliant! And am only like a 10th of the way through the behemoth!

I used to follow his output quite avidly back in the mid 00s and the amount of stuff he gave away for free. So many gems were lost when he pulled the site down. I'm happy to see this is seeing the light of day again.

I'm loving this so much but still kind of intimidated by the length of it! Been listening  to it pretty much constantly last few days and still only like 2/3s through the source album!

Got really into long ass albums recently but even then this feels almost to much..

Interested how others suggest listening to this monster, am still not sure whether to curate my own album from it (which would take effort in its self) or just dip in and out when I fancy listening, or drop in and play on shuffle or something? 

Anyone got any insight on how best to enjoy such a huge body of work?

      evening all,
      ?? those who follow me on social media may have caught wind of this already, but I've taken it upon myself to curate a [what is now shaping up to be a massive] tribute album to Leyland Kirby in regards to his Caretaker project - I've already received an upwards of 30 quality submissions in a matter of a week - at this point, I'm thinking I'll cut it off at 72 tracks as a nod to Theoretically pure anterograde amnesia - figured now is the time to open up submissions to watmm artists.
      for those interested in contributing -- tracks would need to fall in line with the style of the Caretaker material (i.e. haunted ballroom music, dark ambient drones, noise, subdued sampling of 1920's and 1930's jazz, orchestral, and big band music - original compositions are welcome, as is any "Shining" fanfare (as long as it's not too 'disruptive').   track length should preferably not exceed 10 minutes - no intentional remixes of existing Caretaker tracks, no trap beats (you wouldn't think I'd have to say that, but seeing as how I received 3 already), i'd also suggest steering clear of sampling "Midnight, The Stars, And You" - email submissions (.wav) to [email protected] - general inquiries can be addressed there as well.   the loose deadline for now is August, might possibly release it in October, or at least some time after Stage 3 of Everywhere At The End Of Time has soaked in a bit - this should give everyone ample time to turn in tracks - right now I'm thinking this will be released via a one-off bandcamp page, sold digitally - that's not to say arrangements won't be made with a label, if it's a deemed a worthy venture (physical run, etc).   in the spirit of the subject matter, all digital proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association, which aims to advance research, and enhance care for those living with Alzheimer's and dementia.   hope to hear from some of you!   regards, Alex / Nmesh

      I've been trying to find the original songs that were used by the Caretaker. Apart from what I found on whosampled.com and a Youtube channel there isn't much more. I'm the most interested in the ones on 'Everywhere at the end of time stage 2'. I would love to know what that last track is.
      I did find the first one, which is 'Love's old sweet song' by James Molloy. Discovered it while watching the movie Awakenings.
      Anyone else know something?
