Bad Sekta stickers

Welcome to the new Bad Sekta website! Plus proper ye olde integrated web shoppe and such, at long last. Please have a mooch about, check out the site, and let us know if you’ve a particularly strong opinion on the changes we’ve made. In a nutshell, with this build we’re aiming for greater compatibility and functionality across devices, improved accessibility, and keeping things as DIY as possible (e.g. providing downloads from this site, rather than via a third-party). We’ve still a few tweaks to do (especially with regards to loading speed), but we hope you like!

Happily, full-on label reactivation appears unavoidable, with a new Bad Sekta digital release imminent on the 13th May from Obese (bringing the bass with a wicked mini-album of dancefloor booty-smashers), plus more promised over the coming months from label veterans The Abominable Mr Tinkler, Phuq and others! More info anon…

TAMT presents F-lithium - '2001 Grands Classiques'

🙂 HAPPY VENERATION OF THE BASTARD NAZERENE – Allow us to present you with a special MPFree Christmas release from The Abominable Mr Tinkler (presenting F-lithium), the long-lost classic ‘Grands Classiques’…

‘…Rumoured to be cut in the aftermath of one of the most sensational tours of lecture halls in the UK, ‘2001 Grands Classiques’ has now surfaced after being lost for well over a decade…The recordings are thought to have been made during a period spent researching the effects of imbibing peculiar chemicals and sleep deprivation, likely leading to the feelings of paranoia and morbid curiosity one senses whereupon hearing it. These recordings make for an unusual listen; classical string quartets collide with bubbling analogue synthesizers whilst wild winds blow and stuttering distorted percussive sounds crash and appear to tear through the space-time continuum.’

Various - '50th Release Bonus Tracks'

Today marks the ninth birthday of the amorphous, cosmically terrifying, and wonkily seductive entity that is Bad Sekta. 🙂 Please allow us to extend our thanks to you once again for your continued support and attention! We never thought that we would get this far, and we do this because of you.

If you’ve not bought one of the first 100 records, you won’t have the 12 track digital bonus album that came with them, so as a small gift on our birthday, why not download the Hekula, Meme, and Ronin tracks from that release? Available as a 320kbps MP3 freebie, for one week only!

Various - 'BADvinyl001' label A

The first 100 of our record ‘BADvinyl001’ are now sold, so check it out soon if you want to own a little piece of Bad Sekta history!

We are still alive, just working on a lot of projects behind the scenes – normal service will be resumed shortly. Just over a week until our ninth birthday too…
