Six Drawings Of Admittance poster

Six Organs Of Admittance poster - Rik Rawling

I’ve used this 2011 drawing to mock-up a poster for a Six Organs Of Admittance poster. Six Organs of who? This is a musical venture driven by Ben Chasny, a former member of the indendiary Comets On Fire, who went off on a very different tangent, incorporating acoustic guitars, drones, chimes and Middle and Far Eastern influences. He’s been prolific, putting out a couple of albums a year since 1998, but my favourite is 2007’s Shelter From The Ash. Suffused with apocalyptic imagery, it has forever become fused in my memory with Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Great stuff, and the perfect accompaniment to a long uninterrupted painting session.
