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
I have written a book for French publisher Lenka Lente. The book is called 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

扭曲
Coming early in 2017 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.

MONSTROUS MEDICAL MISHAPS (HORRENDOUS HOSPITALS AND DISASTROUS DENTISTRY | L.P. | OUT NOW
Another instalment in the ongoing MONSTER series and the fourth record for Blackest Rainbow.

Monstrous Medical Mishaps (Horrendous Hospitals and Disastrous Dentistry) is a medically themed album. Many of the rhythm tracks used on the recording were constructed from an array of meticulously crafted samples garnered from an assortment of medical and dental instruments being tapped, scraped and plucked.

As with all Liles releases, this L.P. covers a huge and unpredictable musical landscape, ranging from leftfield electronica and twisted beats through to the unfathomably bizarre.

Open your mouth and say “AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!”

Stunning cover art comes from Zeke Clough, an artist known for electronic music’s most shockingly morbid and detailed sleeve art, whose twisted designs came to define the aesthetic of the groundbreaking Dubstep label Skull Disco.

ACEDIA | ART EDITION CD | LAST FEW COPIES
ACEDIA (/əˈsiːdiə/; also accidie or accedie /ˈæksᵻdi/, from Latin acedĭa, and this from Greek ἀκηδία, “negligence”) is a state of listlessness or torpor, of not caring or not being concerned with one’s position or condition in the world.

ACEDIA is an album of dissonance, anger and soundtracks of discordance.

ACEDIA is a CD in deluxe packaging released as a very limited ‘Art Edition’ of 150 copies which include a unique signed and numbered piece of original art by Andrew Liles.

PRESS RELEASE
An unexpected foray into modernist composition adopting influences from the vanguard of 50s and 60s avant garde, The Power Elite showcases Liles’ talent at crafting truly original art. The conceptual nature of this release concerns itself with the impotence of the masses living in the shadow of military, economic and political institutions. The Power Elite is Liles’ second release for Steven Stapleton’s United Dairies label and comes in a deluxe 6 panel digipack.

”…exquisitely complex, peculiar and pensive themes that commiserate the perversity and sheer villainy of the 21st Century.”  – The Quietus

“A masterpiece of modern contemporary composition. Absolute brilliance!” – Steven Stapleton
