New Grumbling Fur Visuals

A video featuring teleporting Furgasms, a hydrogen bomb named Ivy and the number ∞ (repeat ad infinitum for maximum results). Directed by our dear friend, British fine artist and Turner Prize nominee Mark Titchner.



An "unofficial" video featuring Indonesian monkey chants, high priest Mola Ram (from Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom) and moving mandalas. Directed by American artist, architect and awesome dude Michael Lewis. He's so awesome we asked him to make a video for a track from the forthcoming Miracle album so keep those third eyes peeled.

The Crown



Apply moon tan cream
For quick pliability
Ambitions are built
Dissolve the centre
Your body must be near
To be aware that your organs have changed
Obviously
Life experience
The mirror
Incarnate
Nothing silly or stupid
Accept what is without avoidance
Perpetual elder
Shone out
The boy never changed countenance

Fur vs Charlemagne at Cafe Oto

I'm curating a Charlemagne Palestine residency at Cafe Oto. Charlemagne played at my installment of Transmissions Festival in Ravenna and enchanted all. So the good work continues! Day one (June 14th) will open with a unique collaboration between Steve Noble and The Bohman Brothers and will conclude with a solo performance by Charlemagne. Day two (June 15th) will open with a rare appearance from L'ocelle Mare (Thomas Bonvalet formerly of Cheval De Frise) and the finale will be the debut performance of a new collaboration between Charlemagne and Grumbling Fur. Hope you can make it! But tickets here.

Fur Power!


We, Grumbling Fur, are releasing our second full length album 'Glynnaestra' through Thrill Jockey records on July 22nd. Here's the bumph...
  
Daniel O’Sullivan of Ulver and Guapo and Alexander Tucker (Imbogodom) have announced that they'll be joining forces again as Grumbling Fur for a new album of psychedelic sonic explorations, Glynnaestra. The duo "have crafted an avant-pop album assembled as one would a collage," reads the text accompanying the album's release. "This structural foundation is built up via an eclectic array of instruments, both acoustic and modified, to pulsating electronic sounds. ... As their history attests, this is a group unbound from the restrictions of traditionalism and unafraid to shed the pretence of pure abstraction. There's a tradition of subterranean Englishness at play, harking back to This Heat's Deceit and Eno's Another Green World. In their first fully realised album as a duo, the process and texture ripple with a kind of electro-gnosis. Glynnaestra herself (an archaic goddess divined by Tucker and O'Sullivan) presides over the record, transcendent and sphinx like: an apt muse for an album of such lovely and powerful music." 

We're also featured in Serena Korda's film 'The Transmitters' currently showing at Camden Arts Centre as part of her new solo show 'Aping The Beast'. More details here. We're performing live third eye soundtracks to coincide with three ritual dance pieces around a 15ft green latex dinosaur puppet.
