Louder Than War recently reviewed Björk’s ”˜The Biophilia’ live show from the Manchester International Festival.

We can now confirm the release of a very limited and frankly rather special version of ”˜The Biophilia’ album; Released on 26th September 2011 will be ”˜The Biophilia – Ultimate Edition’, which will be presented in a lacquered and silkscreened oak hinged-lid case.

The set consists of the ”˜Biophilia Manual’ along with 10 chrome-plated tuning forks, each silkscreened on one face in 10 different colours, stamped at the back, and presented in a flocked tray. Get this – each fork is adjusted to the tone of a ”˜Biophilia’ track, covering a complete octave in a non-conventional scale.

Yep, that lost me too, but for the musicians amongst you:

1. A 220 Hz
2. B 233 Hz
3. C 261.6 Hz
4. C# 277.2 Hz
5. D 293 Hz
6. Eb 311.1 Hz
7. E 329.6 Hz
8. F# 370 Hz
9. G 392 Hz
10. A 440 Hz

This rather special edition will be made to order and fabricated only once; each case comes with an individual numbered certificate. Orders must be collected by August 12.

And the cost for this exclusive edition; a cool £500 plus £31 P&P (UK)

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.


  1. Thanks for all of the hard work on this blog. My aunt takes pleasure in participating in internet research and it’s simple to grasp why. Many of us know all about the powerful means you convey powerful ideas on your web site and even welcome response from website visitors on this content plus our girl is now understanding a whole lot. Enjoy the rest of the new year. Your conducting a useful job.

  2. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  3. of course like your web site but you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to inform the truth nevertheless I will certainly come again again.
