'Ad Marginem' began life as a collaboration between filmmaker Liam Yates and Mugstar, created outside a traditional framework whereby a filmscore is added to a completed film. Members of the band were equal partners in writing, directing, editing as well as acting; the on screen drama was shaped to complement the musical form. 'Ad Marginem' is both tightly controlled and claustrophobic, though is not without a supersonic, dark and dense explosiveness, echoing Slint and Pink Floyd. Visually, the stark black and white photography of the cover pays homage to classic world cinema. The entire project (interiors and exteriors) was filmed within a stone's throw of the coast and contrasts post-industrial urban landscapes with some of the most beautiful Merseyside locations: the Sefton coast of Liverpool Bay and Hilbre Island, where the Dee Estuary meets the Irish Sea. A tale of obsession and betrayal, it takes as a theme physical and social marginality: a cult on the margins of society, a man on the margins of the cult. In case you've not heard of them before, Mugstar ((Peter Smyth - Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals; Neil Murphy - Guitar, Flute, Viola; Jason Stoll - Bass, Saxophone; Steve Ashton - Drums, Percussion)) are an instrumental rock band all the way from Liverpool, influenced by krautrock, Pink Floyd, Neu!, Sonic Youth and Oneida. 500 COPIES ONLY. LP AND DVD +++ "Mugstar operate on a level that is a joy to behold." Uncut "Rarely less than utterly transcendant.. Glistening, interstellar sonic glory" Rock Sound 'Locked groove psychonauts distil the wordless core of Hawkwind, Neu! and Sonic Youth....' Mojo '...about time they receive some well-deserved attention' Rock-A-Rolla 'The British quartet rarely put a foot wrong." Terrascope '...continuing their excellent approach to psychedlic rock, propelling them alongside contempories like Bardo Pond, Oneida, and Kinski.' Boomkat.
