Swastikas for Noddy is a 1988 album by English music group Current 93. It charted on New Musical Express's Independent LPs chart in March 1988.

Lead Vocals – Ian Read. Crooked Crosses For The Nodding God. C1. He Is Everywhere Nowhere. Packaged in a full-color gatefold jacket, reproducing the original artwork and adding previously unpublished photograph of Current 93 in each format. Swastikas for Noddy" is pressed on opaque purple vinyl, "Crooked Crosses for the Nodding God" is pressed on opaque green vinyl.

Original cover painting: "A Crooked Shriek". Crooked Crosses For The Nodding God" is a re-recorded, re-mixed, and re-structured version of "Swastikas For Noddy", and so the colours I saw before and after Iceland are now complete. And, as "Swastikas For Noddy" was dedicated to Diana and Steven's first Child Lilith, this album is dedicated to their second. A long and joyful life to Nyida, sun and moon what Current 93 fan would not already own both releases?? Nothing new, no outtakes, demos, etc. included? What a waste.

The whole thing is basically a remix/reworking of the 1987 album "Swastikas for Noddy" with some fresh recordings thrown in to liven the proceedings.

Reissue of Current 93's seminal and liminal 1986 album Swastikas for Noddy, including the 1987 re-recording of the album, Crooked Crosses for the Nodding God. Packaged in a full-color gatefold bearing the original artwork plus a ed photograph of Current 93 by Ruth Bayer, tinted by Ania Goszczyńska. Includes insert with track listing, group line-up, and a photograph of Current 93 at the time of the recording, again by Ruth Bayer. One record is opaque green; the other is opaque lilac.

Current 93. Track Listing - Disc 2. Title/Composer. Current 93. blue highlight denotes track pick.

and on album 2, you get Noddy's more ghostly twin, Crooked Crosses for a Nodding God, which is almost the same album, but re-recorded, remixed, and messed with in general by the great Steven Stapleton, AKA Nurse With Wound, and I. think Tony Wakeford in the line-up. This is a chance, probably a chance that will quickly go away, to get both of these albums at a great price.

Release track list for second LP is wrong. It skips from track #12 to track #14. The album only has 17 tracks.
MrDog
Releases like this make absolutely no sense to me... what Current 93 fan would not already own both releases??? Nothing new, no outtakes, demos, etc. included? What a waste.... :^)
BOND
Both albums were out of print before this came out. Now they can be picked up at a reasonable price for those who don't have them yet.

Same here... I only began my C93 obsession three or four years ago. These records on vinyl used to cost more than I could pay. Now, thank you David, I have both for the price of a regular album, or close enough, and as I purchased directly from the artist, I am directly supporting an artist that I am exceedingly happy to support in this way... not paying out to some secondary ass selling for "market value" for his own profit with nothing going to the artist. Yes, they are limited releases, for a variety of reasons, and perhaps more limited than necessary, but this isn't merely "indie" as a new marketing niche... it's independent, hands-on, recorded music, and while it is recorded music and thus somewhat "mass produced" and commercial, it isn't pop and isn't going for gold. I was once in an independent band and we put out an independent LP, and the number of copies and distribution was of financial necessity limited. New record of two long tracks coming in November, or so said the artist's website. I've noticed things often get delayed a bit. I hope to see more of the back catalog see new LP/CD releases (not files only, please, or at all), if for no other reason that to stick a boot up the asses selling All the Pretty Horses or Thunder Perfect Mind (vinyl) for hundreds of dollars.

It seems to be the new way for artists to make money (not necessarily a bad thing, but...). If you look at the 'new' releases page there are multipe versions of the same release listed (CD, Digipak CD, 2LP, Gatefold LP, colored vinly, mp3, mp4, cassette, laser disc, betamax...) which I find hilariously funny, and a bit sad. I understand artists need to make money, but at times it seems they prey on the 'hipster-fan ideal' out there these days where only 'real fans' have every iteration of their favorite artist's newest release. Question: If it's about getting your music to fans, new and old, why limit a release? I LOVE Current 93, and many other outre artists, but their habit of releasing a new album (or re-releasing an old one...) with only 25 copies (or something similar like only releasing copies at their show in who-the-fuck-knows-where-it-is, Wales...) makes me mad. I'm not paying someone $900 for a vinyl release (especially if they seemed to have bought it 'from an artist they love' merely so they can turn around and put it up for sale on Discogs for 500 times what they paid for it), even if the devil himself pressed it using the tip of his pronged tail. Maybe there isn't a better way...

How about new fans?!I myself consider that a reprint with a few outtakes and demos is more of a rip off as you have to buy a record at full price on which you already have 90% of the music just to get a chance to listen to the extras. DI6 is the king at these sort of things, making you buying Nada! or Brown book 3 or 4 times over the years...As I already own both releases I don't have to buy this one and am happy for people to be able to discover the music.
Pringles
I consider myself a Current 93 fan, I did not own either of these so I was happy to get a chance to own them new and on lovely coloured vinyl.
