Legendary porn star Sasha Grey and cult musician David Tibet (Current 93) team up in one of the most unexpected pairings in pop culture. You may have been aware of her guest vocals on Current 93′s last album, Aleph at Hallucinatory Mountain, earlier this year. Well, apparently they have decided that will not be their only collaboration. Grey’s band, Atelecine, will be receiving Tibet’s unique touch in return.
“Sasha and Ian (her boyfriend) are full of love, grace, drive, charisma, beauty and flowering in apocalypse. I am honored to be their friend. I am also working with them on their musical project Atelecine” – David Tibet
Believe it or not, Atelecine does show some promise. They recall much of the dark, or Goth, feels of the experimental bands in the 1980s. Names like The Legendary Pink Dots and The Virgin Prunes come to mind while listening. In fact, I quite enjoyed them.
You can listen to one of the increasingly rare “heavy” tracks on a Current 93 LP in Tibet’s exploration of Gnostic Folk music at NPR right HERE.
