  • "Lies," a track from the now-defunct UK experimental group Bourbonese Qualk, will get new life by way of a vinyl release on Mannequin Records with Ancient Methods on remix duties. Bourbonese Qualk came into existence in 1979, and put out a stream of confrontational albums through much of the '80s and into the early '90s. After a long pause, their final album, On Uncertainty, came out in 2001, and the band disbanded the next year after the death of guitarist Miles Miles. Since then they've made mp3s of their entire catalog freely available on their website. "Lies" originally came out in 1986 on the Preparing For Power LP by way of the group's own label Recloose Organization. A terse, electro-tinged cut just under two minutes long—you can hear it via the YouTube player below—"Lies" certainly sounds like the sort of stuff that Ancient Methods would take on. (He's also remixed more contemporary artists, like Whirling Hall Of Knives, Manni Dee and Headless Horseman, in 2014.) He'll contribute a remix and edit on the Mannequin release, which also features the original version. Along with that record, it looks like Mannequin will be collecting much more of Bourbonese Qualk's material for re-release, starting with Bourbonese Qualk 1983-1987, which draws on their first five albums and will come on double vinyl and CD. According to Simon Crab, a founding member of the group, it'll be the first of a series of reissues (and he's taking care of the artwork). After trying out "Lies," you can see the tracklist for that one below. All release dates are still TBA.
