Things are finally starting to happen again after that strange couple of weeks that seemed to go by so slow – perhaps it was all just a dream?
if you want to hear what I’ve been up to then listen out for the forthcoming release of one of the most insane records I’ve ever been involved in. It’s from “SCHISMS”:
edition of 200, riso LP’s.
Out on dutch Punk label BERGPOLDER. I should have some copies up on here (just as soon as we’ve paid our customs charges…!) Otherwise, look out for it at KNOTWIG records, DISCREET MUSIC, or get it direct from Bergpolder’s discogs page. It’s gnarley as hell and should probably come with a health warning.
Writing solo work continues at it’s slow pace. chip chip chipping away…some good things are emerging. Many more maudlin songs, sparse ones, synth beats, some piano compositions, and I’ve been learning to play cello and sing without too many effects, though not all at the same time.
I’ve got a few events lined up where I’ll be trying some new things out:
I’ll be doing a live stream, hosted by NARR radio in Leeds, and broadcast by them and by MUTANT Radio. Not sure of the set times yet, but keep an eye on my twitter feed if you’re that way inclined – www.twitter.com/florasninos and / or my instagram. www.instagram.com/notwavingordrowning for up to date info.
I’ll be playing at HUDDERSFIELD’s A.M.E space, which looks to be a really exciting evening. Glad to share the bill with extraordinary analogue synth specialist Sam Weaver. I think there will be lots of delicious indonesian food as well as a panel discussion about DIY culture.
I’ll be supporting a new duo – Bianca Scout and Elena Isolini – at the White Hotel in Salford, organised by Karl from Them There records, it should be a good one. Hoping to work in some synth and go down a lonely pine wood trail in twin peaks national park. Let’s see how it pans out.
Here’s hoping for some better times ahead.
In the meantime lets consider what it might take to
BREAK APART THE IDEA OF SEPARATION.
Love and thanks,
hi – so I was asked by the very lovely NARR radio to choose a selection of tracks and you can listen to them here. It was most enjoyable.

Lovely selection of tracks picked by “The Wire”‘s Frances May Morgan, including something from the recent digital only bandcamp release, OUTTAKES from “Pure Touch Only From Now On, They Said So.”

At one point “Pure Touch Only From Now On, They Said So” (Early Music, 2018) was going to be a double LP.
This would have been on the second disc:
