Mark Stewart's Halloween Special (31/10/21)

Mark Stewart is an artist, vocalist, producer and songwriter from Bristol. As a founding member of The Pop Group, Mark Stewart & The Maffia, Stewart has remained an anarchic and pioneering figure since the punk era, a constant source of discordance amongst the frontiers of post-punk, dub, industrial and electronic music. 
In a body of work driven by an explosive form of lyricism and inspired by radical politics, protest movements, theory, philosophy, technology, art and poetry, Stewart has fearlessly cultivated a revelatory collision of ideas, ideals and influences throughout an indisputably ground-breaking and seditious career
Mark can also be heard on this mix:
A one hour sound collaboration between writer, actor and director Graham Duff and artist/musician Peter Harris including contributions from Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle), Colin Newman & Graham Lewis (Wire), Saul Adamczewski (Fat White Family), Sheila Ellis, Stephen Thrower, Dorothy Max Prior, Matt Shaw, Malka Spigel, Misha Begley, Jamaican toaster Prince Hammer and trumpet and trombone from David Fullwood and David Andrews. And all the regular BOMBART collaborators Fritz Catlin (23 Skidoo), artist/composer Saron Hughes, Aloha Dead, and vocals from BOMBART partner Mark Stewart (The Pop Group). And most poignantly of all, some of the final recordings from the genius and Harris's long term collaborator Lee "Scratch" Perry (rest in power)
