The Pop Group

We are The New Banalists

The Pop GroupAfter three long decades of inactivity, Mark Stewart is reviving his former band The Pop Group. Legends from the most confrontational side of the British post-punk and with only two records in their discography - Y (1979) and “ For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder?” (1980), both infectious mixes of punk, dub, funk and industrial noise- they have been referenced as a major influence by artists like Massive Attack, Nine Inch Nails, Atari Teenage Riot, Sonic Youth and LCD Soundsystem. The Pop Group have announced a double revival: the band (so far we haven’t got a clue who will join Stewart) will be touring next Autumn under the ATP umbrella (so far there is only two confirmed dates: September the 18th in Bologna, an two days later in Turin). On top of that there will be a new album, “The Alternate”, expected to be released half way through September. The announcement of their return comes with a brief manifesto: “ Deny the politics of envy. Taste is a form of personal censorship. Technique is the refuge of the insecure. We are The New Banalists.
