LILES, ANDREW - Life is an empty Place

Format: LP
Label & Cat.Number: Norton North MMXIV-VI
Release Year: 2015
Note: an album that seems to be focused on personal childhood & adolescence memories filled with judgements, disciplination and control (school, work) as the cover-art shows; musically based on drum machine and machine gun sounds, lots of processed (vocoder) voice material and analogue / digital synths, this is like a dismal journey into LILES implicit autobiographical memory... lim. 400 on golden vinyl, gatefold cover with front artwork by BABS SANTINI (aka STEVEN STAPLETON); BACK IN STOCK, better pricing!
Price (incl. 19% VAT): €20.00

More Info

" Life Is An Empty Place is the brilliant new album by ANDREW LILES (Current 93 / Nurse With Wound), one of the best eclectic musician in the UK, with his several collaborations with most of the important esoteric / brown area bands. The album is a mix of electronic, experimental and surreal tracks. LIAEP comes out in deluxe gatefold cover (tobaccos paper) and red vinyl, strictly limited to 400 copies. Fantastic cover made by Steven Stapleton / Babs Santini / Nurse With Wound." [label info]


"This 8 track album concerns itself with drum machines and machine guns and is an excursion into complex sequences, contorted rhythms, vocoders and digital and analog synthesizers.

Front cover art by Babs Santini.

Issued in a deluxe gate fold sleeve with an edition of 100 pressed on black vinyl and 400 on gold vinyl.

There was also a VERY limited version of this album on DVDR. This item was released in an edition of 20 copies that were signed, numbered and enclosed in a rubber stamped sleeve. The audio is slightly different to the L.P. version.

The film has been remixed and adapted by Liles from Basingstoke Building Developments 1969, an archival film about building construction in the new town. It was sourced from Wessex Film and Sound Archive and is used with permission.

I was born in 1969 in Basingstoke and much of the films locations are around where I lived and played as a child. Locations that are very familiar, my infant school, sprawling council estates, shops and pubs. For me, this grainy, distorted, blurred film evokes grainy, distorted, blurred memories.

This DVD may be released in a larger unlimited issue at a future date it may not." [Andrew Liles website]
