Baghdad Batteries Special Edition

SPECIAL EDITION NUMBERED CARDBORB BOXED SET
BAGHDAD BATTERIES {ORBSESSIONS VOLUME III}
AN ILLUSTRATED HANDBOOK WITH STEREO SOUND

FEATURING THE MUSIC FROM WERNER BOOTE'S AWARD-WINNING FILM PLASTIC PLANET


"There’s a very special atmosphere to this album: two men bouncing ideas and exploring in classic Orb style to make a classic Orb album, hitting the magic place Alex always strives for, but this time with a lustful vengeance tempered with new gentleness and a movie in their heads."


this is a magnificent piece of nonsensical frippery that looks like it was posted from baghdad in 1938


here's what you get:

the double vinyl

the UK CD release

a special bonus CDR of alternative interpretations

a wallet of recently discovered photographs & documents

a small tin of associated paraphernalia [copper wires, paper clips, pennies, lemon balm seed packet*, numbered badge, action figure]

a unique personalised certificate of authentication stamped by the orb & malicious damage

*due to customs restrictions we can't send the actual seeds outside europe - sorry!
