A Hallucinatory Patripassianist Dream.
The texts for this album were started following an intense dream I had that Black Ships had entered our skies in preparation for the arising of the final Cæsar and for the Second Coming of Christ. In subsequent dreams I saw geometric faces, colours, words and shapes falling into my head. They appeared as a multitude of images; they were dreamlike yet vital, manifesting as processions of characters and scenes and dialogues that shifted between being utterly lacking in conventional perspective to that of being hyper-dimensional. I commenced writing furiously, and the words of Black Ships Ate The Sky are the recording of this period in my life.
I asked those friends and artists whom I love and whose works I most admire to interpret the haunted words of that great hymn "Idumæa" by Charles Wesley; this piece had become an obsession for me before starting work on this album and its face watched over all these Black Ships, providing one key to this Hallucinatory Patripassianist Dream.
I live in an increasing awareness that a Love will come suddenly who will finally tear our skies apart. And then all Black Ships will be no more.
This album was started four years ago by myself and Michael Cashmore, without whom this album would not exist, and finished four years later by myself and Ben Chasny, John Contreras and Steven Stapleton, without whom too this album would not exist. My heartfelt thanks to them for all they have done. More detailed acknowledgements can be found below, but I also wish to thank those other friends who worked on this album, for without them there would be just words. Andria, Marc, Will, Dee, Antony, Clodagh, Cosey, Chris, Shirley, Amy, Bill, William, Mark, Colin, Geoff, Al, Paul, Lance, Michael: thank you.
Thanks too to Blessed John Bradburne for prayers answered and favours received.
I dedicate Black Ships Ate The Sky to our beloved friend and companion Squiggy who went on from us on St. Valentine's Day, 2006. May she rest in the Love of Christ till all times end and all friends meet again.
I Am Black Ship.

Thank you, again, to all those who created and worked on this album. And to those who contributed with their friendship and support: above all, Mark Logan of Durtro Jnana Records, whose friendship and endless generosity and love kept me from capsizing under the approach of Black Ships. I wish to acknowledge the kindness of Lance Eccles for his great patience and generosity of spirit. Black Ships were launched at the same time I became obsessed with Coptic, and he helped me profoundly.

Edition of 1000 copies.
Packaged in a gatefold sleeve with a 16-page colour booklet. Pressed on heavyweight black vinyl. This 2LP set contains the same music as on the (standard) Black Ships Ate The Sky CD. The vinyl is therefore the same as the CD in every musical respect, though there are several major differences to the packaging and images, and a new painting which takes up all the inner centre spread of the album.
The booklet contains an introductory note on the writing of the album by David, all the lyrics, details of those who created the album, colour photographs of all the Current 93 family on the album, website details for everyone, Hallucinatory Patripassianist colour illustrations and BlackShipText on each page, and the names of all those who supported the recording, and the release, of this album by subscribing to it in advance.
The titles of tracks B6 and D1 are written in Coptic, here they are entered using Roman characters.
