MARK STEWART & THE MAFFIA LIBERTY CITY OFFICIAL VIDEO

Mark Stewart has revealed the official video for 'Liberty City' as part of the definitive reissue of 'Learning To Cope With Cowardice'
An interdisciplinary collaboration between Mark Stewart & renowned avant-garde choreographer Mehmet Sander

'A stunning glimpse into the mind of two brilliant creators.' Pop Matters

'Giving new meaning to the pioneering industrial-dub & post-punk track' The Quietus

“Me and Mehmet are keen collaborators reimagining zones for performing bodies. In this piece we take the principles of total physical and audio liberation to its endgame, even if we arrive at that point through the means of excess and overload. Classical readings of dance purport that all movement is made in relation to form. What Foucault pointed out was that the production of the ‘subject’ – which both me and Mehmet believe is crucial in this age of discipline, punishment and negative entropy – is, in fact, our ‘carceral archipelago’“ Mark Stewart

The ‘Liberty City’ video is the first ever visual document to accompany material from Mark Stewart’s debut solo album 'Learning To Cope With Cowardice'

'Learning To Cope With Cowardice' will be released on Mute alongside 'The Lost Tapes', a newly discovered cache of unreleased material. The release is out on double vinyl, double CD and as a limited edition double clear vinyl (with a percentage of the vinyl sales going to the Mercy Ships charity) on 25 January 2019.

Praise for 'Fight Fire With Fire':

"Mark Stewart's (Pop Group) narration of a futuristic world devoid of humanity is literally neurotic. Human freaks proliferate from the ashes of corporate greed, political malfeasance and biological manipulation. Like Trump's inner circle, or Italy's Lega Party. Sci-fi doesn't displace our contemporary world. It reflects on its more negative trends." Soundblab Alternative Music

"‘Fight Fire With Fire’ takes the album is somewhat of a different direction with a spoken word from the Pop Group’s Mark Stewart. This dystopian track develops science fiction-style narrative making political points about a world where human of genetic variance are pitched again each other. It is intense and sinister… you really need to listen to it to understand the full drama here." Psych Insight Music

"‘Fight Fire With Fire’, featuring the dystopian hued spoken-word courtesy of Mark Stewart, hangs suspended in a sea of glitchy reverberations and pulsing electronic atmospherics. Crawling feedback laden frequencies pull repetitive percussion and throbbing lines of melodic bass into the mix, instantly injecting structure and clarity into proceedings. This is addictive, brilliantly produced and another album highlight" Primal Music Blog
