DIARIO DE UN MONSTRUO | L.P.
Diario de un Monstruo is a homage to the 1981 album Diary of a Madman by Ozzy Osbourne. It is another (and some might argue, inevitable, addition) to the ongoing MONSTER series of releases.

To say Liles’ recording is a cover version of the original Ozzy album is far too simplistic and misleading. This recording adapts motifs and hooks from the original music but is in no way similar. It is a complex tapestry that is woven from many fine threads and at times is a confusing and incomprehensible MONSTROUS interpretation of the classic album. Anyone expecting a hard rock L.P. will be sorely disappointed.

Liles has been obsessed by the original album since its release 36 years ago and has been collecting various L.P. pressings and ephemera associated with Diary of Madman for many years. To read a comprehensive guide about his fascination with the record please go here – MADMAN

Limited to 500 copies, the L.P. is packaged in a high gloss laminated sleeve and has a printed lined inner.

扭曲 | LTD. CD + UNIQUE PHOTO
Shipping now is another art edition CD for U.M.P. As with all U.M.P. releases expect very high quality packaging. This time the disc comes in gatefold sleeve and is released in an edition of 150 copies which includes a unique signed original photograph by Andrew Liles.

扭曲 is possibly one of the most technical, abstract and intricate pieces of music I have ever put together.

THE UNIMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST | L.P.
This item is unlikely to be available in any shops outside the USA and predominately will be ONLY available through this website in Europe.

Half the pressing is on white vinyl the other on black. there is a deal for collectors to buy both the white and black discs in the shop. Music on the discs is exactly the same.

Musically this is the bastard offspring of THE POWER ELITE with it’s distorted avant-classic DNA melded with the twisted electronica of LIFE IS AN EMPTY PLACE.

DOWNLOAD SITE
The Liles download site has had a significant face-lift. Some items have been deleted and a substantial amount of material has been added.

An array of long out of print discs are now on the site including the 6 disc box set The Flesh Creeping Gonzoid, Through Time Trilogy, several collaboration albums and an expanded edition of ‘Where the Long Shadows Fall’ which includes a previously unreleased 27 minute track.

All the titles have been enhanced, cleaned and volumes boosted and equalised. They are all available as high quality FLAC files as well as WAV and MP3.

There are also quite a few price reductions and the pricing has been formalised throughout the site. Most standard albums are £4. Larger and expanded editions range between £6 and £12 and the huge releases are £24. There is also the opportunity to buy all 55 releases at a massive 65% reduction for just over £105.

Most of the material on the site is out-of-print releases and discs that have almost reached the end of their physical existence. Primarily the site is there to keep deleted material alive as it is unlikely that it will ever be released in any format again. With such a huge and complex discography it is next to impossible to keep everything in print.

MOTHER DEAREST | BOOK + CD 
Mother Dearest and is a bizarre short story that will be in both English and French.

Mother Dearest is a story of childhood suffering which poses the questions: is the young narrator a girl or a boy? Is his brother human? Is his father a busy scientist or an idiot hermit? Is his mother a simple (and happy) narcissistic pervert?

Très Chère Mère / Mother Dearest is illustrated throughout and comes with a 13 minute CD also titled Mother Dearest.
