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.

THE POWER ELITE | CD | OUT NOW

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

ICR, the studio, mail order and distribution started by Colin Potter in the early 1980s is an important contributor to the history of British independent experimental music.

ICR is 35 years old, and has released over 80 albums to date. Yet it remains a relatively obscure presence to all but the true fans and followers of marginal music. All the more surprising when the roll call of artists involved with the label covers a broad spectrum of eccentric and innovative musical imagination.

This event allows 4 key players in the ICR story to celebrate an overlooked landmark of British exploratory music.

The celebration, ICR:35, features solo sets from Michael Begg (Human Greed, Fovea Hex), Jonathan Coleclough, Andrew Liles (Nurse With Wound, Current 93) and Colin Potter (Nurse With Wound, Monos).
