Kuwaiti Airforce was originally only available as a super limited run of 25 cassettes, distributed at an LA show in 2012. The LP features collaborations with Silent Servant, aka Juan Mendez, and Demdike Stare.

The new vinyl edition also features tracks from obscure early Vatican Shadow releases, including cassette-only Around The Dragon’s Broken Neck Hangs The Medal Of Saint Lazarus, as well as tracks taken from Hospital Productions’ 2011 compilation White Eye Of Winter Watching.

The release follows Demdike Stare’s Passion, one of our favourite albums of 2018.
