    Mark Stewart: New studio album Edit

    In time for spring 2008, a legend who left a lasting mark on the world of music returns with a new studio album: Mark Stewart. Created and recorded between London, Vienna, Bristol and Berlin, Stewart’s sixth full-length release, Edit, marks a welcome return to his solo career after numerous collaborations with, among others, Tricky, Massive Attack, Chicks on Speed, Adult and Primal Scream. To accompany the release, Mark will embark on a global tour in 2008.

    As teenage front man and mastermind of seminal Bristol post-punk legends The Pop Group (1978-80), Stewart already used his microphone as a weapon. In an era that saw public opinion and perception tainted by Thatcher, Reagan and the Cold War, The Pop Group emerged as one of Britain’s most radical exponents of new music and quickly gained notoriety well beyond the British Isles.

    It‘s always a special pleasure to flip through that box of singles. This diminutive format in black vinyl made it possible for a musician‘s own productions to be released in the smallest of runs. Very often for lack of funds they only came out as 7“s, in contrast to the big labels. Long since unavailable or, if to be had at all, then sadly only at hefty collectors‘ prices.
    Sometimes the B-side is an eye-opener: the A-side a let-down. And of course a centre puck is standard equipment for any lover of the 7”!

    A pity, though, that they‘ve got to be turned over after three minutes, so if you‘re planning on an evening‘s wall-to-wall listening then it‘s best to make yourself comfortable next to the turntable with your box of singles within arm‘s reach.

    7“ UP! is our song of praise to a fine little medium that only a few labels are still putting out. No promotion for vinyl, though, in these days of mp3 and the iPod...

    A compilation of British rarities from 1978 to 1982…
