Skipping To Armageddon: Photographs of Current 93 and Friends by Ruth Bayer – With an introduction by Michel Faber, and a Foreword by David Tibet


“Like much of the music made by the artists who entrusted her to reflect their mercurial spirits, Bayer’s pictures are magic…”


Bringing together, for the first time, the music photography of Ruth Bayer, who has documented key players in the English musical post-punk underground since the mid 1980s. With unprecedented access and intimacy, Ruth has photographed luminaries and legends including Marc Almond, Little Annie, John Balance, Peter Christopherson, Cyclobe, Shirley Collins, Baby Dee, Norbert Kox, Tony (TS) McPhee, Steven Stapleton, David Tibet, Tiny Tim and many others, in a career spanning three decades.


A unique collection, featuring over one hundred timeless and iconic images of some of the most influential, eccentric and sometimes controversial musicians of their times.

I’m looking forward to this book. Ruth Bayer is an extremely good photographer. Her work appears throughout one of the books that Starfire Publishing issued last year – ‘The Play Goes On: The Rituals of the Rainbow Bridge’ by Zachary Cox and the late Jean Williams – and is excellent throughout.
