The runout on the A side should have read “MOMMY DON’T BURN OUR TOYS”, but the first four words got lost due to a pressing mistake.
The cover is an acrylic on canvas painting which measures 50 cm by 50 cm. The letters were written left-handed with a twig from a Danish forest. The painting was offered for sale on the Sound+Matter site on the day of the physical release at midnight.
Text from labels homepage
The debut release on Sores could be by none other than Martyr of Sores. It is a project of the prominent experimental artist Richard Ramirez, with hundreds of productions to his name. Richard has worked with names like Prurient, Thurston Moore, The Haters and Merzbow just to name a few. He is also an avantgarde fashion designer.
’Ceremony’ is a monumental noise piece in two parts. Electrical whirlwind sounds that grows ever so slowly to take you in and tighten it’s grip around your very being. Chants evolve in and out of the inferno that are nothing less than astonishing. A hard and beautiful noise work, thanks Richard.
Play very loud.
