Mother Moon is a sample-based séance to the Banning Mill: a real-life decaying psychedelic “mansion” - a haven for Southern misfits, freaks and artists in the backwoods of Georgia from 1971 to 1999 - and to an extraordinary piece of art that lived there. This album was conceived during my personal visits to the Mill which started in 1994 and continued until the Mill closed in 1999. Mother Moon was recorded at various locations between 2017-2021. It is dedicated affectionately to Richard and Carol Hill.

Mother Moon is available in a matte-finish spot-glossed six-panel CD edition through Cold Spring in the UK: coldspring.bandcamp.com/album/mother-moon-csr319cd

This edition is also available in the US from Forced Exposure:
