SOOT - A General Theory of Tears C32

Obsolete Units initially put this out and it is now out of print there. So I thought a proper re-release on Black Horizons of my own first album as BH-100 was highly appropriate. Intially OU had this to say, and it is still valid;

"SOOT is the death industrial alias of James Livingston, founder of the intrepid and esoteric Black Horizons label. Following last year's superlative split with Thoabath, A General Theory Of Tears is SOOT's first full-length communiqué, a purgative and distressing inspection of loss and anguish. Livingston constructs an oppressively thick and ominously laden presence that interfaces with an explicit dub influence within its storm of thundering kick and distorted fog. A carefully thought cycle that assembles the disparate approaches of Brighter Death Now and Information Overload-era SPK with Scientist and DJ Screw at their most somnolent."

Art re-imagined and BH-ized, of course, with a fold-out, 8-panel j-card featuring the original collage art from Paul Van Trigt. Black and neon green ink offset printed on gray linen stock. Edition of 100 copies on neon green tapes and labels.
