In stock


* Edition of 75, Red vinyl * Father Murphy's path ended on December 17th 2018. We're proud to present exactly two years later an essential reissue for the first time on vinyl of the band's first two EPs now collected as 'Origins'. Known for their furious live shows, something in between a ritual and an artistic performance, they released a series of concept albums based on expressing the sound of Catholic sense of Guilt.

In their early days though they were still diving deep into a psychedelic magma that was to somehow inform their future music. “Origins” collects their first two EP’s, recorded between 2002 and 2006: “When we were young the world wasn’t in your hands” and “I saw seven horns rising from the Sea, when a rooster sang for the third time”.

There is no better place to start discovering one of Europe's most unique bands. From the circular rhythmic patterns of 'We know who our enemies are', to the industrial lament of 'Stereo' and psychedelic acid folk of 'Butterflies & Bats' this is an incredibly intimate snapshot of an artist paving its own road built on nuance, perseverance and symbolism.
