Current 93 are a prolific English experimental music group founded by David Tibet in 1982, with a rotating lineup often including Steven Stapleton, Michael Cashmore, and others. While no track listing exists, this release most likely contains tracks from their 1998 album Soft Black Stars, a reference to Thomas Ligotti’s Teatro Grottesco.
