DANGEROUS MINDS PREMIERE A SHORT FILM ON THE MAKING OF LEARNING TO COPE WITH COWARDICE

imagedescription

'If you’ve never heard Learning to Cope with Cowardice, it is a collection of sounds that wraps your nervous system around the spools of a cassette deck, then uses your brain to degauss the tape head and your cerebrospinal fluid to lubricate the capstan...In the film, Stewart and producer Adrian Sherwood describe the mixing and editing techniques they used to make this mental work of art, some imported from New York hip-hop and other audio collage forms and some invented on the spot and probably never yet repeated'

MARK STEWART RETURNS TO ON-U SOUND WITH FAVOUR A BRAND NEW SINGLE FROM PAY IT ALL BACK VOL.7

imagedescription

A new track from a forthcoming album by Mark Stewart. Laser-beam synth and cosmic italo backing vox glide over depth charge dubbed to oblivion snare hits and a Stewart vocal in the manner of a distorted chansonnier. Redolent of his solo projects and his classic work with The Pop Group and New Age Steppers.

Stewart comments: “For my first new solo release in seven years it’s an honour to be on our Pay It All Back series. Big up Sherwoody! The circle remains unbroken”
