"yes, i wonder why everyone's claiming various other musicians to be innovative whilst the one who really is, is hard to get any info about! that is amazing...and very sad. personally i think that Mark Stewart is one of the most talented composers of our times and he plays/sings with his soul. he's got something that is similar to Van Gogh in painting, - he seems to be too emotional and looks like he feels too much and tries to express it all in his music. yet he's got the amazing rythm, drive and his stuff can pick ones attention fully cos not only is he "an indie/underground/bohemian" type of musician whos music is almost impossible to listen to cos of some so called "experimental research",- Mark Stewart's stuff is absolutely complete and he's got something real to say. It's catchy in a good sense and it's extremely far away from the mainstream.
And yes, I wonder what he's up to now, in the year 2004...Wish to hear his new stuff so much, hope he's doing all great!"
Always way ahead of his time!

"Mark Stewart, one of the great unacknowledged forerunners of the industrial, trip-hop and elctronica scenes shows the imitators how its done on this all-digital disc. Dozens of acts have been more succesful than Mark Stewart playing the type of hard-edged, funk/techno that he almost singlehandedly created. But none have ever been more out-there and creative. My only question -- where is he now? There hasn't been a new Mark Stewart album in four years."
Are you happy in your dream kitchen?

"Nobody review for Mark Stewart? That's a shame 'cause his stuff is BAD! This is hard, hard techno industrial produced by Adrian Sherwood of fame. It's not all 200 bpm, however. Some of it is sooo slow and funky with Mark's subversive vocals coming through an electronic cloud. Stewart was (hopefully still is) an innovator. It's too bad Mark's earlier stuff isn't easily available. My favorite is Mark Stewart + Mafia. Mafia was Doug Wimbish, Keith LeBlanc and Skip McDonald aka the Sugarhill Gang at one time. Get this before it's out of print."
