MARK STEWART: il leader della storica band THE POP GROUP, torna con un progetto solista anticipato da "NOTHING IS SACRED" in free download da oggi

l carismatico guru dell’industrial, leader della storica band The Pop Group,  torna con un nuovo progetto solista, The Politics Of Envy,  in uscita a marzo 2012 per Future Noise Music/Self.

Nothing Is Sacred è il brano che anticipa il nuovo lavoro di Mark Stewart, disponibile in free download al sito a partire dal 2 dicembre.

“Mark Stewart has led the attack on conformist reality. Mark is a constant inspiration and a true Thief of Fire.” 
-Primal Scream-

“The paradox of choice
Priceless Souls
In a neon wasteland...
Bankrupt ideologies
Litter the dealing rooms floors”
-Mark Stewart-

Mark Stewart makes an apocalyptic return amidst an increasingly agitated atmosphere. On December 2nd, Mark will release “Nothing Is Sacred” as a free download.  The track is a damning indictment of greed in a year riddled by riots, revolutions, occupations and increasing collapse of the global financial system. A collaboration with Crass vocalist Eve Libertine, German electro monsters Slope and Dan Catsis from the Pop Group on bass  “Nothing Is Sacred”’s howling funk-rock and unyielding political attack evolved from the sessions for Mark’s forthcoming album, and is the now-deleted AA of his limited 7” cover of the T.Rex classic “Children of the Revolution”.

Mark Stewart is one of those rare artists that has not only remained steadily prolific over the course of three decades, he continues to inspire with his pioneering sonics, viciously astute social observations and uncompromising manifestos.  Nick Cave, Alec Empire, Bobby Gillespie, Trent Reznor and Tricky amongst many others have cited him as a major influence, as well as a host of current provocateurs like Factory Floor, fellow Bristol producers Kevin Martin (The Bug, King Midas Sound) and Kahn. His 11th-hour appearance at St. Vincent’s recent London show duetting on his early Pop Group track, “She’s Beyond Good and Evil” elicited a breathless response from critics (“a firefight of vocoder-distorted vocals and funk-rock rhythms” – The Guardian) and St. Vincent herself: “I did not want that song to end ever!  It’s crazy to get to play with one of my heroes, I kinda can’t believe it.”
