This summer, the Court of Sybaris has been feasting on the chill, putrid matter just below the skin of our failing civilisation. And we are nearly ready to burst forth once again, in buzzing horror, to bring you an exciting gig and a brand new track.
Saturday 10th October
94 Middlesex Street, E1 7EZ
There we shall premiere our new tune, "Wanderer" - a fable from the crooked darkwoods of our homeland.
Looking forward to supping upon your delicious tears.
Not content with burying Reading in smoke, we have another show fast approaching at the Sebright Arms in Bethnall Green.
The Heralds invite you to join them there on Wednesday 13th May before it is too late
This year we begin our live visitations. We are playing the Face bar in Reading on April 23rd and then The Pipeline in London on October 10th
More details in the Live section.
2014 is completed.
You can still hear Trigger on the BBC Berkshire Introducing program, and in 2015 we intend to be making live visitations across the globe. Until then, we will be roaming the frozen wastes, scavenging for roadkill to eat.
The Heralds have granted you all a boon, that you may serve the Court better!
The tolling of final Possession Night is ever more deafening, and you can even hear it on Spotify:
The time has finally arrived for you hear our music. "Possession Night" is composed of six songs, of which five we created.
This site was launched, to ecstatic rejoicing. The world staggers another step closer to the abyss, drunk with pleasure.
Their music, like the Court itself, is trapped in the nightmare of the cold war, drowning again and again in a cocktail of decadence and despair.
This is 1939.1, 1914 mark 2. Dust off the air-raid sirens for the descent is inevitable. The bad old days are returning and the Court are the warning that comes too late. The midnight toll of Possession Night approaches. To you ghosts of the past and seeds long dormant we say: let us set a course for the void.
The Heralds speak for the Court of Sybaris. In their current incarnation they are two people from England, and the wheel of names has rested upon Gnaeus and Caligula. All of the instruments you would expect are present, manipulated to produce a musical effect.
