MEDITATION IN CHAOS - Little Annie

Nowadays terms like “legendary” and “star” have all but lost their meaning, nevertheless Editions Timeless are proud to present the first ever artbook by a truly stellar legend, the original dub diva: Little Annie Anxiety Bandez!

Little Annie is loved and adored for decades of inimitable torch singing, the list of her collaborators reads like the who’s who of out-there music: Swans, Coil, the On-U Sound stable, Crass, Anohni, Baby Dee, Marc Almond - and the list goes on!

Annie has been painting and taking photos for years, her motifs include iconic religious imagery, the brooding skyscrapers of her former home NYC and intricate floral compositions. “Meditation In Chaos” presents a glimpse at all of these and much more.

The book features an introduction by her friend Penny Rimbaud of Crass and several stunning portraits of Annie herself. Apart from the standard hardbound version of the book there are three limited art sub-editions featuring original art presented in a ribboned folder.

BOY (1976 - 2016)

“The first advertisement made for the infamous London
fashion store, a large format poster designed by Peter Christopherson.
Boy was formed in 1976 on King’s Road by John Krivine and Steph Raynor.
Christopherson at that time was both a member of Throbbing Gristle, and
of the design company Hipgnosis, who had been responsible for some of
the most recognizable album covers of the era, including Pink Floyd’s
Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. Krivine invited
Christopherson to create the initial design for the store after seeing
COUM’s poster designs for the Citizen’s Theatre in Glasgow.

Christopherson was responsible for the initial concept and
design of the store, including the typography, and also the window
displays, which showed an unconscious or dead young man. Genesis
P-Orridge described them to Jon Savage as follows: “The idea was that a
boy had climbed in to steal stuff, accidentally knocked over an electric
fire and set the place on fire and burned to death. And these were the
leftovers of the boy. So there was a Doc Marten boot with bits of flesh
and there was a bit of his jeans and buttock and a finger with a ring
and some mouldy hand. And they were in little forensic dishes in these
glass boxes like you would find at the Black Museum. So this was just a
parody of a mixture of forensic evidence and vandalism.” – [P-Orridge,
quoted in Ford 7.4-7.5]

The window display was provocative enough that the windows
were soon vandalized, a problem that would dog the early days of the
shop. Boy London would go on to become on the most influential and
controversial fashion lines of the 80’s. Christopherson would go on to
form Coil with John Balance. A rare example of the early work of the
most innovative and provocative designer of the period, or of any
period.”












Forthcoming early July 2016 : Frans De Waard’s life at Staalplaat (80’s and 90’s)


THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A RECORD LABEL - Staalplaat: Eleven Years Of Distortion - Frans De Waard

In 1984 Frans de Waard started his own band, Kapotte Muziek, and his own
cassette label, Korm Plastics. A few years later, in 1992, he was asked
to work for Staalplaat, then one of the biggest independent labels for
experimental and electronic music. Staalplaat was the home for bands
like Muslimgauze, :zoviet*france:, Rapoon, O Yuki Conjugate as well as Jaap Blonk, Normally Invisible and Kingdom Scum. With an average of three new releases every month, Staalplaat remained a major player for the next eleven years. Frans was
hired to set-up a database and to sell and buy new music, but over the
years also assumed a role as (unofficial) business director and A&R
man, and came to be regarded as the head honcho. In 2003 he’d had enough
and decided to quit.

This book tells his story about those eleven years, the many high and as
many lows of working for a small independent record label, which also
functioned as a shop, mail order, radio programme, news outlet, and
concert organiser. It’s about embarrassing confrontations with
musicians, labels, distributors, and the endless spending on the most
unique packaging CD-Land ever saw.

This book is not about the 1980s when Staalplaat was part of the local
squatter movement or their post-2000 activities in Berlin. This is
Frans’ personal account from within, when Staalplaat was riding its
biggest wave in the 1990s.

It includes various appendices, such as an interview with Staalplaat
founder Geert-Jan Hobijn, a transcript of a radio interview with
Muslimgauze, a 1980’s account of Staalplaat’s activities, and a
discography, among others.

There are no images of artists or album covers; instead you can feast you
eyes on some never-before-seen, behind-the scenes photos taken in the
office, shop and warehouse.

This book will appeal to everyone with an interest in the experimental music
scene, and anyone else who wants to read a crazy, funny and sad story
about a small struggling record label. Knowledge of the music is not
required, but you will surely be inclined to look it up while or after
reading this. Anyone who is interested in a manual of how (not) to run
your record label might want to take notes.
