THE POP GROUP BACK IN THE STUDIO WITH DENNIS BOVELL & HACK SHOCKLEE

Studio

“We’ve at last fulfilled a double fantasy to work with our two favourite sonic assassins, Dennis Bovell and Hank Shocklee,” the band’s Mark Stewart tells Consequence of Sound. “We’re in awe as Dennis, the Captain Kirk of dub is taking us on a hyper sound voyage into the future, and Hank, as always tears up the rules totally upholding our faith in the absolute value of noise. We’ve gone completely off the map.”

Utrecht Le Guess Who Video Portrait by Nick Helderman & Jeroen Dankers

‘When the band broke up, we just sealed it. We kept and protected everything. There’s a five year plan of putting out stuff that’s interesting, recording new music, and playing all over the world. It’s a serious project we’re all into. I think we’re more into it now than we were as kids.’
