Mark Fell

Also on Editions Mego

Mark Fell Mark Fell knows how to use time to good effect away from SND. It’s been only three days since we reported on his new album for Raster-Noton and here we are again, talking about his third full-length recording, to be released on the reputed Viennese label Editions Mego.

The new release is entitled “UL8”, a name that throws some hints regarding the inspiration for an album “made with and for UL8s”, a model of Celestion loudspeakers through which Fell discovered synth sounds during his pre-adolescence. “My older brother bought a pair of these when I was starting comprehensive school, and between his 10cc and Supertramp records I first encountered electronically synthesized sound at high volumes. I soon noticed a pattern emerging in my musical tastes which excluded guitars or drums. Instead I favoured almost exclusively the electronic textures and rhythms of The Human League, Fad Gadget and other synthesiser based music of that period. I was quite curious about this prejudice and would try to work out why Kraftwerk sounded so much better than a rock band of the time”.

That’s where Fell’s obsession with all kind of electronic textures and timbres comes from, his appetite being soon whetted by an analogical synth which he borrowed from a neighbour (a technician at the Electronics Department of Sheffield University) and a second-hand rhythm box (a Boss Dr55). This simple combination—a monophonic synth and a primitive rhythm box—is what Fell wanted to replicate on “UL8”, an album with a pronounced experimental accent that Mego will release on 15th December.
