A very limited amount of the 2011 promo CDR ‘Madonna’ by SARGASSO SEA which features ‘Cold Stones, Andrew Liles Mix’ is now available in the shop.

DREAMY GORGEOUS MONSTER | BOOK + CD 
A vile, ridiculous, sickening, relentless, rhyming sonnet of 70 verses spread over 48 pages with a collection of exotic and erotic images that have been extensively adapted and collaged in Photoshop.
Not that we think the imagery is in any way shocking or excessive BUT three printers (KDG, SNA and MPO) in France refused to manufacturer this book.
This book has been evolving and growing since 2009 and has now found a home at Timeless, the amazing French art publisher who have issued books by some of my favourite artists including Val Denham, Trevor Brown and Shintaro Kago.
10″ x 10″ Book and CD. SOLD OUT. The CD ONLY is available in the SHOP.
For the book and CD go to – TIMELESS.

ANGAKKUT: UNSHAPED UNSPOKEN | L.P.
I love the music Angakkut – that’s why I agreed to do the remix! Beautiful, ethereal, wispy vocals, vibes and mellow guitar chords.

At this time there are currently no definite release dates. Also in the pipeline are a few remixes and compilation appearances along with new music from Nurse With Wound.

REACHED PREMATURE MATURITY (45 rpm) | LATHE CUT 7″ + DOWNLOAD | 2014
Originally to be released for my 45th birthday on 11th March. 2 track 7″ and download of 11 tracks all of which are 4 minutes and 5 seconds in length aside from the last track which is 4 minutes 10 seconds long. The total running time is 45 minutes, being a contrived reference to my age. The majority of track times (4.05) are a further reference to my age and the number of tracks (11) being reference to my date of birth. The recording was made on an i-Pad using a virtual ANS synthesizer. The images imported or drawn on to the synth were all references to either my date of birth, age, significant places and my name. I used the ANS sound specifically for the reason that it has the name ‘Ans’, which in French translates as years. The word ‘years’ being a reference to the concept behind this recording.
The 7″ lathe cut has remixed versions of track 6 on the A side and track 9 on the flip side, representing (19)69 – which denotes the year I was born. The overdubs used on the lathe cut mixes were created by an i-Pad version of the VCS 3 synthesizer. The original VCS 3 was created by the Electronic Music Studios (London) Ltd. (EMS) and issued in 1969 (again, another reference to the year of my birth).
This item has been delayed and is set to come out in April/May.
