Omnia Opera Re-issues in pipeline as Delerium Records finds new lease of life.

flyer

Independant record label "Cherry Red Records" has now aquired the rights to the complete Delerium Records back cataloge. Delerium Records was founded in 1991 by 'Freakbeat' zine editor Richard Allen and 'Amazing Pudding' founder Ivor Trueman and went on to release two albums for Omnia Opera which was a seminal moment in bringing Omnia Opera to the masses and a world wide audience.

Richard Allen is currently working with Cherry Red to produce a label overview box set that will be released in Febuary 2011. This 3CD box set is titled "Last Daze of the Underground" more details on this  release can  be found  here. This will be followed by expanded versions of classic Delerium albums including the Omnia Opera albums in early 2011.

It is hoped that the Omnia albums will have detailed historical notes and previously unseen photos and bonus tracks. It is also hoped that this has brought us a step nearer to the long overdue and promised re release the bands early cassette tapes which will finally see a debut CD issue in the near future.

Omnia Opera enter 2010 with a new recruit (see new dangerous drone clone evolves article on right) and a new album well underway. alf hardyAlf Hardy second synth man is missing from the above pic and is currently missing in action, last seen providing fresh plasma for the 'Earth Lab', Alf's other musical outlet with the immutable Jerry Richards.

At present we are not quite sure of whats going on with Alf but I dare say he will resurface and join us at some point for some new sonic convulsions.

New Songs at Last...Listen hear

"Big Brother"

"Leaning Backwards"

Winter Solstice Celebration Release,
21 Dec 2009

We are repentant about the wait you have endured for our new tunes but here at last are a couple of new offerings to wish you all an exultant solstice... thanx for bearing with us! As a gift to the world we duly make these songs free to download and distribute as you see fit. They’ve been a long time coming so we hope they hit the spot in the Omnia style you’ve come to insist upon. 

“Big Brother” a reworked oldie of ours but we like it, so we had sex with it, married it and started a family with it, put it back in the live set, so go play it loud on xmas morning at 6am!!
 
“Leaning Backwards“ we just want to show the world we can 'chill out' a bit, an instrumental laid back frequency with a hyper mellow vibe. Mountains of new stuff to follow soon watch this space while listening to these two!

Listen and download these tunes using the links at the top of this article. To download use the links at the bottom of this article, they are our gift to the world...small but potent balls of plasma for your aural pleasure, any problems downloading them let us know.

Omnia Collectable!!

In the March 2009 Issue of 'Record Collector' Omnia Opera were listed in a special 'Space Rock' collectable's review written by Ian Abrahams. Apparently the first vinyl release by Delerium Records of the self titled 'Omnia Opera' album is now fetching £60 out there in the world. There were only ever approximately 2000 copies made and this explains its rare status. Personally we think your mad to pay that much for it. But it none the less it is rather flattering and a sort of moment in the bands history worth marking. Below is the review as it appeared in Record Collector

Omnia Opera to come out of
Hibernation in 2018

Omnia Opera plasma

OK space bas*ards and plasmanauts...we know you've been waiting a long time for any proper news from us...and to be honest, up until a few weeks ago there wasn't really much to say. Plasma engines had been temporarily decommissioned whilst a new ship was built to house much more powerful thrusters, and this took a bit longer than anticipated. Quite a bit longer.

But we're very happy that we can now report that plasma engines are back up and running and early testing suggests a power increase of 4.7 thargs. Which is quite a lot.

So, the big news is that we are hitting 2018 with a brand new lineup, and a brand new plasma-brother at the waveform controls, Mr Paul Wassall, aka Wass (Dream Circuit). Please give this wonderful space bas*ard a warm welcome, we're very excited about how things will develop over the coming months. But let's not get ahead of ourselves, we'll be announcing news of some gigs imminently, amongst other things. In the meantime - strap in, 2018 promises to be strong with plasma again...we're very happy to be back
