VINYL VERSION (out 2nd March, 2020): Translucent green vinyl (90 copies, pre-order only) or standard black (124 copies), inc. insert + download code. Additional risography art print when PRE-ORDERED through our website here: www.deadwaxrecords.es/releases.php

BURNING SKIES OF ELYSIUM’s drummer Graham Mitchell sadly passed away in April 1988. His brother Chris and their closest friend Matt Venn returned to The Slaughterhouse in December and recorded three songs with the help of a drum machine; ‘One Afternoon’, ‘It’s All Over’ and ‘Dutch Villa’. Only the latter was released on the rare various artists cassette-only sampler ‘You Can’t Be Loved Forever No. 2’ back in the day. We also included it on our long deleted Distant Waves compilation in 2014.

For us at Dead Wax Records these three songs are just splendid, absolutely haunting, amongst the best that BSOE ever did. We think they’re so magical that we had to put them on a proper vinyl release. This is our humble, heartfelt homage to a band that was struck by fatality not just once when Graham died, but again when Matt also lost his life in a car accident in October 2001, five years after BURNING SKIES OF ELYSIUM had morphed into the indie band LOLATWIST. Graham and Matt, may you rest in peace and happiness forever. Your music will always live with us.

With a bittersweet taste in our mouths, we present IT’S ALL OVER as a limited, hand numbered 12” edition split in two vinyl colours; 90 copies on translucent green and 124 on standard black, housed in a matt finish sleeve with black inner sleeve, including an insert and download code. Moreover, all PRE-ORDERED copies (no matter if green or black), include an exclusive risography art print.

about

Dead Wax Records Barcelona, Spain

Dead Wax Records is an independent label just like the ones in the early 80s. We do everything ourselves out of pure passion for music, focusing mainly on post-punk, minimal & cold wave, synthpop, goth rock / pop. Quality music always, lost forgotten jewels in need of a second chance, recently discovered treasures that will see the light for the first time.

Music doesn’t stop on the Dead Wax!!
