Ed Blaney and Mark E Smith are set to work on a
collaborative project that will see the duo release a number
of limited edition of 1,000 "mock 7" singles" and also an
album to follow. Ed was approached by Voiceprint to work
on the project alongside Mark E Smith and Ed who formerly
managed The Fall was keen to be involved. The music
which the two have written and recorded is said to be
different from The Fall's work.
Speaking of his new project, Ed said: "I was approached
by email, but I had been away in Bulgaria for a while and
had thousands of emails to read. Mark and I work well
together, were close friends and the music has gone down
well, we will probably end up doing a few gigs."
The first limited edition is due to be released at the end of
this month, and another single set to follow.
Ed describes the five tracks as very spontaneous,
opinionated and humorous.
Ed added: "The tracks are all very different, and some
concentrate on current affairs. There are some acoustic
songs, I play the guitar and Mark sings, but even they have
a big full on sound."
