A 12” EP of tracks from the archives of Sheffield based electronic music legend Richard H. Kirk, entitled “Never Lose Your Shadow”. Kirk first came to prominence in the 1970s as a member of the seminal industrial band Cabaret Voltaire. His first release as a solo artist, Disposable Half-Truths, came out in 1980 on Throbbing Gristle’s Industrial Records label and since then he developed a solo career parallel to the band until its dissolution in 1994. On the EP, there’s tracks originally recorded between 1978 and 1987, which have never before been released on vinyl. The title track, ‘Never Lose Your Shadow’ blurs the lines between harsh industrial, dance floor, and no wave. The other three tracks are more experimental and reference ideas Kirk was exploring in Cabaret Voltaire at the time. The EP is limited to 999 hand-numbered copies, the first 500 are pressed on solid grey vinyl and the remainder on black.
