Only 1 left in stock

What our staff has to say: “Beyond destroyed real time improvisational slow motion decay New Zealand underground broken noise no-wave-ish brilliance. Completely perfect. Hail The Dead C!” – Brandon

“Killer collection of recordings from the duo of Bruce Russell (Dead C) and Alastair Galbraith, recorded between 1994 and 2016.  Heavy on a rotation of guitar, organ, & violin jamming from New Zealand’s best.” – Jon

A Handful of Dust was founded over three decades ago by two giants of the New Zealand underground, Bruce Russell (The Dead C, Xpressway, Corpus Hermeticum) and Alastair Galbraith (Plagal Grind, The Rip).

Declaring their raison d’être in the now infamous Free Noise Manifesto the group has advanced a radical aesthetic; Rejecting any notion of structure or comfort they’ve ground music to it’s sub-elemental parts. A scraping and howling electricity, spontaneous, unrestrained, physical.

i) Being beyond “music,” it is noise.
ii) Being beyond “rules,” it is free.

Dragging Her Wings of Rusty Knives contains expanded and unreleased works spanning the group’s history including their first studio recordings since 1995 and new writings, a late coda to The Journal of Vain Erudition, Logopandocy.
