Y Live

Carefully constructed from recordings of dazzling live performances in diverse places such as New York City, Brussels and Manchester, Y Live should be seen as a natural evolution of The Pop Group’s seminal 1979 debut album Y. Future members of bands such as Cabaret Voltaire and PiL can be heard!

Learning To Cope With Cowardice / The Lost Tapes (Definitive Edition)

Learning To Cope With Cowardice was the debut solo album by The Pop Group vocalist and post-punk pioneer Mark Stewart and The Maffia. This reissue, regarded as the definitive edition, is coupled with The Lost Tapes. Following the break-up of The Pop Group in 1980, Stewart went to New York and began picking up ideas for an industrial hip-hop sound. With the help of producer Adrian Sherwood and crack team of reggae musicians including ‘Deadly’ Headley Bennett and Bonjo Iyabinghi (African Head Charge) the vision became a reality. Originally released in 1983. Double LP and CD on Mute.

The Pop Group

Y by The Pop Group was their debut album, originally released in 1979. The post-punk band from Bristol were seen as pioneers of the genre. They mixed jazz, reggae and dub influences with punk to create something quite original. The band claim they were trying to mix Funkadelic with Captain Beefheart to see what happened.
