2LP reissue/version of the CD that was released by Fourth Dimension Records in October 2022. The CD has now sold out direct so please don't ask.
Since 1983, Justin K. Broadrick (Godflesh, Jesu, Council Estate Electronics, The Sidewinder, etc.) has been producing largely solo, but sometimes collaborative, work under the Final moniker. Beginning as a more obviously power electronics-inspired project it has during the past two decades or so evolved into one which still retains that sonic intensity but has a more expansive sound. 'I Am the Dirt Under Your Fingernails' comprises nine tracks each named and numbered after the album’s title, 'IATDUYF' violently pushes us through a murky world of suffocating textures, crepuscular guitars, serrated noise and what appear to be random bursts of sawmill grind which together create the perfect backdrop to today’s newscape.
This is a relentless sound that’s absolutely unforgiving as it hammers home anger and despair with little respite, illustrating very clearly that JK Broadrick has been one of the very few to contort the uncompromising approach of early power electronics into wholly new and contemporary forms rife with greater possibilities.
This 2LP version is typically behind schedule but should be out October 2023.*
Limited to 300.
*Please note that there are ongoing delays with vinyl manufacturing. The test pressings for this arrived in July 2023 and have been approved, so the main run 'should' follow around 2 months later. Please pay attention to the 'should'. Such matters are beyond our control and have much to do with RSD.
Also note that the low price is for the pre-order. Once the 2LP is here the price will increase to 26.00 GBP + shipping.
