Choucoune Asphyxiate Repeat


Tuesday 5th March, 2019

Since 2011, Cranes Records has followed with respect the activism of Spectres. After two albums released on Sonic Cathedral and many EPs on Howlin Owl Records, Cranes is proud to engage with the release of a 12'' single which foreshadows the release of a third album. The brand new titles Choucoune Asphyxiate Repeat and EVOL provides a harsh mix of grizzly art-rock, post-punk and noise, full of camouflaged hooks and potent abstract imagery. You can pre-order it here.

The cover is a reproduction of a "Crying Boy" by Giovanni Bragolin, a 1960s painting famous for being associated with an urban legend in England. To answer the supposed curse of the painting, the cover is sealed in an airtight plastic bag which contains a turpentine perfume created by us.

"On 5 September 1985, the British tabloid newspaper The Sun reported that an Essex firefighter claimed that undamaged copies of the painting were frequently found amidst the ruins of burned houses. By the end of November, belief in the painting's curse was widespread enough that The Sun was organising mass bonfires of the paintings, sent in by readers." - source : Wikipedia
