Clock DVA announce release of ‘Post-Sign’ album…

Industrial pioneers Clock DVA have announced the release of a new album ‘Post-Sign’ – the album marks the first release of new DVA material since the single ‘Eternity’ was released back in 1993.

‘Post Sign’ will be packaged as a DVD-sized digipak and comes with a 28 pages full colour booklet which includes the extended text from ‘Sign’ that was referenced in the original sleeve notes along with a number of original artworks that are based on conceptual elements contained within the tracks.

The CD also includes links to download various video clips including “Phase IV”, “Sigma 7” and “Project Paperclip” – the album will be released on the bands own Anterior Research Media Comm imprint – All Anterior releases are presented within the in DVD digipak format, each release being embossed with the Anterior log and follow a generic corporative design, the aim being that a label identity will build with each Anterior release.

‘Post-Sign’ is a collection of material recorded after the release of the album ‘Sign’ – Orders are being taken now direct at Anterior Research Media Comm.

Produced and composed by Adi Newton throughout 1994 /5 in Florence and Milan during a transitional period in the chronology of DVA.

Due to circumstantial events these recordings remained as primary bases for later development, intended as an instrumental companion album to ‘Sign’, similar in concept to the instrumental album ‘Digital Soundtracks’ Newton states “I felt that these recordings although unfinished represented a point in time that contained a series of emotions and paradigms that these recordings capture, coming back to them after more than a decade I did not want to try and re work them, as those ideas and feelings have now developed to something new and rather letting them remaining in obscurity it would be more positive to release them in their original form , the drawings reveal the core, the latent intentions of form. These recordings represent some of the darker elements of the NASA mercury program which in recent years has become more exposed.”

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
