Description

Colin Newman - Bastard

Release date 14 July 1997

Re - Released SEPTEMBER 2000
While the album (which rejoices under the title Bastard) features a wide range of styles - deep, techno, funky beats, drum'n'bass - it is, if anything a return to Newman's "rock" roots, several of the tracks including swathes of electric guitar underpinning the rhythms. The record sums up Newman's listening (and recording) habits over the few years before the release and the eclectic nature of the swim label, which he runs with his wife, Malka Spigel.

All tracks on Bastard were written by Colin Newman and Malka Spigel and produced by Immersion.

Reviews

One things for sure, 'Bastard' sounds unlike any other dance album you'll hear this month. Open
your mind and leave any 'art wank!' preconceptions at the door. Rob Feam Mixmag

Tracks such as 'May' show just what a boost being an accomplished guitarist can be when it comes
to making cutting edge '90s trip-hop. Ian Peel DJ

Bastard finds him tilling new ground in utterly convincing fashion. He needn't worry about being
bracketed as some kind of art-punk recidivist because he's just produced a fresh collision of rock
and Electronica. MIKE BARNES The Wire

This is no bastard - it's a thoroughbred. Brooky The Modern Dance

Deep bass, funky beats and electric guitar are mixed together and the result is a fine album of
consistent quality.....Let's rock!. Pauric Mcanespy The Amplifier

None of this is jungle, exactly, or illbient or drum'n'bass. It's something rarer: post- rock that
retains the stamp of it's creator. Glen Hirshberg LA WEEKLY
