ATTACK THE MONOLITH Limited Edition Vinyl Release

Back in the mid 1990′s, myself and (DJ) BENJAMIN formed a group called MONGRELS. We self-released a few records from time to time before the project lay dormant for over a decade. A few years ago, I unearthed some early demos and half-finished material, which inspired us to get back in the studio and pick things up where we’d left off.

 

Over the past 12 months, these endeavours have began to see the light of day in the form of:

LOW BUDGET/HIGH CONCEPTYOU DIG RAPS? (Part 1) and BURGUNDY BLOOD MEETS MONGRELS… IN THE POP WILDERNESS. The main focus however, was to create a full length album, which I’m pleased to say is finally HERE.

 

ATTACK THE MONOLITH is now available on limited edition vinyl, complete with hand-printed sleeves, inner sleeves and risograph insert. Each copy is numbered on the back in an edition of 250. First 50 copies = GOLD ink, 2nd 75 copies = SILVER ink, 3rd 125 copies = BRONZE ink. The inner sleeves are printed in TEAL, MINT and PINK, selected at random to keep things interesting. First come first served, no preference available in advance. Order yourself a copy HERE.

 

Despite being disguised as a lo-fi rap record, this is as much of an art project as the rest of my studio output. The illustration, design, print-making and imagery within the lyrics explore ongoing themes of lost civilisations, matriarch societies, ancient mythology and 80′s pop culture references a plenty. The album also features honorary MONGREL and NEW KINGDOM alumni, SEBASTIAN LAWS as well as guest appearances from UK heavyweights, LORD RAO and JUICE ALEEM. The record has been mixed and mastered by fellow Sheffielder, DEAN HONER (ECCENTRONIC RESEARCH COUNCIL) and photography comes courtesy of SHAUN BLOODWORTH.
