Mannequin Records will release an archival collection from Orphx’s 1993-1994 period. Inspired by early industrial music and new waves of noise from Japan and Europe, the compilation gathers together material from the Rich Oddie and Christina Sealey’s first 2 cassette releases (“01” & “02”) originally released by Xcreteria along with previously unreleased tracks recovered from the original 4 track tapes.

The 2 vinyl set is limited to 500 copies and can be ordered right here.

The project was founded in late 1993 by Rich Oddie, Christina Sealey and Aron West. West left in 1994 to create the noise project Tropism.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
