Product Description

New Musik formed in 1977 in London, growing out of a casual band of South London school friends who jammed together under the name End of the World.Songwriter and record producer Tony Mansfield was the lead vocalist and frontman for the band, and was joined in the original line-up by, bassist Tony Hibbert and drummer Phil Towner.

Rather than immediately pursue a recording contract, New Musik chose to hone their craft first. Working during down times at a recording studio where Mansfield was informally employed as a session musician and apprentice sound engineer, the foursome recorded most of what would become their first two albums before approaching the UK record label, GTO Records with the finished master tapes. However, before GTO released the first New Musik single, `Straight Lines', in August 1979, Straker had left for a solo career, He was replaced by Clive Gates, and the new line-up completed New Musik's debut album, From A to B, which was released in April 1980.

New Musik made their first appearance on the BBC TV pop programme, Top of the Pops, in October 1979 with their debut `Straight Lines', From A to B reached the Top 40 in the UK Albums Chart and contained four hit singles: `Straight Lines', `Living by Numbers', `This World of Water' and `Sanctuary'. The band also topped the French singles chart with `On Islands' from the same album.

The band's second album, Anywhere, was released in 1981 and reached #68 in the UK. The album's single releases, `Luxury' and `While You Wait', did not chart. In 1981, a compilation album, Sanctuary, was released exclusively in the United States, consisting of four tracks from From A to B and eight from Anywhere.

The final album from NEW MUSIK and perhaps the weakest of the three, but WARP is still a wonderful thing of its time.

The most serious negative - when compared with FROM A TO B and ANYWHERE - is the absense of a real drummer. Part-time or otherwise, Phil Towner's presence behind the skins on the first two releases helped to retain that vital element of humanity key to some of the group's best efforts. Cliff Venner on WARP, however, delivers some interesting vocals but, oh, the sounds coming from his drum machine...

And while there's nothing to match the unalloyed elegance of ON ISLANDS and THIS WORLD OF WATER or indeed THIS WORLD OF WALTER and TRAPS, the songs on WARP are still far from substandard. GOING ROUND AGAIN; ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE (a Mansfield original); THE NEW EVOLUTIONIST and THE PLANET DOESN'T MIND all rise to the occasion and bonus tracks (included for the Japanese market) make this album, despite the above misgivings, well worth your time and money.

I passed on the presumably fascinating sleevenotes, however, as my understanding of oriental script sadly extends no further than KILL and BILL.

TONY MANSFIELD
Unique in sound and vision. Composer, musician and producer. An underrated genius with a great CV. He is the reason why New Musik deserve to be remembered with affection and respect. And to those critics who dismiss his work as twee or insubstantial, I would argue those points every time. Brimming with sharp and shining electro-pop sensibility, Mansfield's compositions also display a longing and wistfulfulness, evident in every 'quiet' moment. As though he were looking out of a window and seeing something better, more desirable, in the distance but always just out of reach.

Tony Mansfield was one of the most influential producers of his day. This album, with his band 'New Musik' (albeit with a slightly changed line-up) was the third and final album released by the group.

Put simply, each song on this album is finely crafted and expertly performed, and exhibits a talent far ahead of its time.

For all those who hanker after the honest 'Eighties' sound (think A-Ha, Nick Straker, Naked Eyes, Captain Sensible - for Mansfield produced them all) then look no further than 'Warp'.

Enjoy!

This was New Musik's final LP and it was a stunner. The singles Warp and The Planet Doesn't mind were brilliant and showed off how Tony Mansfield was moving away from the earlier pop sound of From A To B. This CD release includes some essential extra tracks including the fantastic Clive Gates composition The Office, which has always been one of my favourite NM tracks.

I held off buying WARP for a couple of years simply believing it was nowhere as good as 'From A to B' or 'Anywhere'. Though these 2 are hard to match, Warp has much of New Musik which can't be ignored by anyone who likes their music and many songs that would sit comfortably on 'Anywhere'. Sampling the songs, 'Train on Twisted Tracks' sounded soo good I thought it was worth the album alone, but alongside that I would put 'New Evolutionist' which races along like 'Design' or 'Division' and is one of my favourite tracks from all 3 albums..also 'I Repeat'has that classic sound. Ignore the silly bit in the middle of 'Warp' title track and this also makes sends a shiver down the spine....The first version of 'All You Need Is Love' is also very good..'Going Round Again' sounds good and the start of the single version of 'The Planet doesnt mind' though the song sounds like the group 'Landscape'. 12th House and even Hunting has those chilly synths in the background...This album, buying it at an important juncture of my life will always remind me of September and October 2010 but like all of New Musik's music it so easily sends you back to 1980... and makes you realise you never really left...

The last New Musik album and whilst showing the usual moments of brilliance " here come the people," "All you need is love ," the very excellent " a train on twisted tracks" and the almost comical "warp" you cant help wondering whether tony mansfield knew where he wanted to go next, or could be bothered, as there are definately a couple of dodgy almost filler like tracks in here, and these are the very tracks that date the album.That said... i wouldn't be without any of the 3 new musik albums... so it must be a BUY!

Bought ' Living By Numbers' aged 13 in 1980 and stayed with NM throughout their short-lived career.
This, their final collection, is kind of quirky - sublime moments (Here Come The People, Going Round Again, I Repeat,their song called 'All You Need Is Love',Kingdoms For Horses and The Planet Doesn't Mind) are only partly negated by the abysmal cover of the Beatles' 'All You Need Is Love'.
Had the original cassette in '82 but as I'm such a fan I didn't mind paying £40 for this in 2006 - a glorious slice of nostalgia from a band that although did not receive the acclaim they deserved, at least had their 15 minutes of fame.
Hugely enjoyable.

The New Musik trio of albums is a must for any serious music buff, the strong songwriting and cutting edge production should be included in an "electronica hall of fame" ASAP.
