'…a dense horror yarn enriched with the sort of recondite historical and fictional references that Alan Moore would be proud to have scribed… fans of cult TV such as The Changes,Children of the Stones, The Tomorrow People and The Owl Service should snap this up.' - The Sound Projector

'The music comprises loops, guitars and ambient sounds, and my immediate impression was that of 'white noise folk'. I haven't bothered to reconsider my initial opinion because I like the concept of white noise folk. - Headpress

Ghost of a Hurt is the first album by The Sinister Insult which was originally published as a CD package in 2011. Available for the first time as a limited cassette edition, it is inspired by a sixty-year-old mystery, the soundtrack for a film that need never be made because no single interpretation could do justice to the strange and haunting story of ‘Who put Bella in the Wych Elm’: a story that involves murder, witchcraft, Nazis, voices from beyond the grave and rituals in the dark (see )

Wrenched from the four corners of Albion, THE SINISTER INSULT (motto: "Weird Fictions. Strange Places. Lesbian Vampires.") pursue their ideal of 'White Noise Folk' via transcendental guitar movements, field recordings, quality art, obsessive writings and keyboards that never come out of the basement. A second album, concerning murder and madness in 1970s London, is currently ongoing.
