Mark Stewart – As The Veneer Of Democracy Starts To Fade
Label: Mute – STUMM 24
Format: Vinyl, LP, Album
Style: Industrial, Experimental
Huge dubbed-out (thanks to Adrian Sherwood production) industrial hit from Mark Stewart, this time without his Mafia. Dropped on legendary British independent Mute in '85, 'As The Veneer Of Democracy Starts To Fade' demonstrates Stewart's 'punk-funk' at its best, gritty and abrasive but yet still managing to retain a sense of buoyant groove. It's littered with sound bytes and bizarre off-the-cuff bursts of noise and still sounds mega in d club! (Vinyl & Sleeve VG ++).
