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

image description

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”

'Alarming, forceful music which gives the listener no choice but to pay attention...The Lost Tapes is at least as revolutionary as Stewart's groundbreaking first album, and just as essential' AllMusic

'Sherwood’s deep dub, matched with Stewart’s post-apocalyptic confrontational style made Learning to Cope with Cowardice sound like the tapes had been through a war… still sounds futuristic and alien today' Brooklyn Vegan

'An exercise in disorientation...in a more paranoid age Stewart sounds like the voice of reason' Uncut

'An astonishing debut...still sounds restless, exploratory, and revelatory. One of post-punk dub's finest moments' International Times

'An album that indelibly inspired me to bring my noise...ESSENTIAL' Kevin Martin aka The Bug
