about

Originally issued by Wist Rec, in conjunction with a 20 page booklet featuring watercolours by Manfred Naescher:

This album is based on the works of surrealist painter, sculptor, and author Leonora Carringon.

"Ice ages pass, and although the world is frozen over we suppose someday grass and flowers will grow again. In the meantime I keep a daily record on three wax tablets. After I die Anubeth’s werecubs will continue the document, till the planet is peopled with cats, werewolves, bees and goats. We all fervently hope that this will be an improvement on humanity, which deliberately renounced the Pneuma of the Goddess.”
- Leonora Carrington

Track Name: Anubeth's Song (Burn Eternally)
here come the northern lights and a flight of wild bees
here come the northern lights and a flight of wild bees
burn, burn eternally

a wolf headed woman in robes of royalty
a wolf headed woman in robes of royalty
burn, burn eternally

a little wolf cub sitting on grandma’s knee
a little wolf cub sitting on grandma’s knee
burn, burn eternally

inner world, outer world, all the same to me
inner world, outer world, all the same to me
burn, burn eternally

a sun in your belly and lava at your feet
a sun in your belly and lava at your feet
burn, burn eternally

here come the northern lights and a flight of wild bees
here come the northern lights and a flight of wild bees
burn, burn eternally
