Limited Edition Handmade Lathe Cut Label
We are a Ritual
Clear Vinyl Lathe Cut 7" Single
Future Grave FG 07
FINAL FIVE COPIES !!!!
I am super pleased to be offering up my first release of 2021. It comes from a wonderful new french
experimental dark acoustic duo called We are a Ritual. The duo comprises Karen Jebane , who you may
recognise from her other music project Golem Mecanique and musician and Distant Voices label owner Thomas Bel.
The Mansion is inspired by a local derelict mansion which both Karen and Thomas visit regularly and love which they
call their Usher home. They have created music here which evokes a strange, haunting, eerie tranquility of past
entities and spirits which have enhabited this old building.
This comes in a individually numbered edition of 40 copies only with handmade black card sleeves which have
paste on torn to size photographic artwork. Each copy comes with an insert and a download code.
Majestically cut by Michael Lawrence @ Bladud Flies!

Trappist Afterland & Grey Malkin - II
Clear Vinyl Lathe Cut LP
(Future Grave FG 08)
This one will be my final lathe cut release of 2020. We present my first ever lathe cut LP on Future Grave. For me this
release had to be with my two friends Adam Geoffrey Cole aka Trappist Afterland and Grey Malkin. This album was
recorded after the sessions for the duo's wonderful and critically approved "The Trappist & The Hare" album on
Reverb Worship. Just to point out that this is also Grey Malkin's debut debut LP too, making it uber important to all
of us. It will also be the final outing for Trappist Afterland before Adam resorts to his solo name for future recordings.
As with previous outings, when these two artists get together musical magic happens. The album contains eight tracks
of supreme mystical folk which feature sublime contributions from Anthony Cornish, David Colohan, Alan Davidson,
Jodie Cornish, Adam Casey, Gayle Brogan and Brett Polliness.
Recorded in Melbourne, Australia by Anthony Cornish and Adam Casey and in Scotland by Grey Malkin.
Post production and mixing by Grey Malkin. Mastered at Horizon Sound by Anthony Cornish.
Sleeve artwork by Alan Davidson with additional sketches by Melanie Xulu.

Beltane Rain / The River Song
7" Clear Vinyl Lathe Cut Single
(Future Grave FG 06)
I am very pleased indeed to be offering up the latest recordings from the amazing Sproatly Smith. It has been quite some time since we worked together. This is a real pleasure for me and is well worth waiting for. The lathe contains two wonderful tracks which truly demostrate a band in top form. The A side "Beltane Rain" is a gorgeous, ethereal, trippy acoustic number which floats along into wyrdfolk heaven. Flip over the disc and we have Sproatly's dizzy folkpsyche take on Donovan's "The River Song".
The lathes plays at 45rpm and were expertly cut by Michael Lawrence at Bladud Flies!.
The artwork has been created by Emily Fosbery.
Each lathe is individually numbered and comes with a download code.
Kitchen Cynics & Grey Malkin
Babby's Ghost / An Encounter by Moonlight
7" Clear Vinyl Lathe Cut Single
(Future Grave FG 05)
For the fifth release on Future Grave I offer up this outstanding and rather amazing two track 7" single by Kitchen Cynics
& Grey Malkin. Whilst recording the duo's "The Wonder Room" album I suggested the possibility of doing a lathe cut
single. Luckily both Alan and Grey agreed and set about recording these two songs which are not available on the
album itself. These are two ghost stories put to song. The first track "Babby's Ghost" is based on the drowning of
Bobby Brown, the flower of Deeside, and her new husband, when a cable car broke as they were being carried
over the River Dee in spate. The second song "An Encounter by Moonlight" was inspired by Athur Machen's splendid
short story "The Happy Children". This single was mastered by John Cavanagh . The lathes play at 45rpm and were
cut by the one and only Michael Lawrence at Bladud Flies!. Artwork created by Alan Cynics himself.
Each copy of the single is individually hand numbered and comes with a download code.
Sophia Djebel Rose
La Louve / La Saveur Des Fruits Exotiques
7" Clear Vinyl Lathe Cut Single
This fourth limited edition Future Grave release is from the wonderful french songstress Sophia Djebel Rose.
These are her debut solo recordings after being a member of the lovely french band An Eagle In Your Mind for sometime.
This is a two track 7" clear vinyl lathe cut single which plays at 45rpm. It comes with a numbered insert plus a
download code which contains five tracks which makes up her debut mini album.
With many thanks to Sophia for allowing me to do this.
This one has turned out beautifully.

Kathleen Yearwood with Trappist Afterland
High In The Foothills / Arid Travels
This is the debut release on Future Grave. A clear vinyl lathe cut 33.3rpm 7" single which contains two very
wonderful specially recorded tracks. Towards the end of 2019 Adam Cole contacted me to let me know he
had been working with canadian experimental folk singer songwriter and writer Kathleen Yearwood.
The music on this disc is the finished result which I really think is a superb way to start a new label project.
These records have been hand crafted over the last few months to the same standard of care and finish as
usual and are individual pieces of art in themselves. The lathes were expertly cut by Phil Macy at 345RPM.
Each record comes with a hand numbered insert and download code.
