4 X 12

A 11 track experimental album (1h 9m 41s) — released July 12th 2019 on Peripheral Minimal

Beginning his career in the arts as a painter with an interest in experimental theatre, Adi Newton formed the electronic trio, The Future, who were one of the first bands to arise in the burgeoning Sheffield, UK, electronic music scene of the late 70s. After recording a few demos which failed to lead to an official release, Newton left The Future (with the other two members going on to form The Human League) and began recording avant garde and experimental music under the name Clock DVA along with Steven "Judd" Turner.
The original idea for the Anti Group was devised by Adi Newton and Steven James Turner as early as 1978, with the intention of the formation of a multi-dimensional research & development project active in many related areas.
This TAG / THE ANTI GROUP CD Album contains two exclusive original unreleased RMXs by Richard H Kirk, which have been produced and developed by Adi Newton in 2019. Remastered by Jacque Beloeil for Anterior Research / Peripheral Minimal Records. CD also includes a 16-page Facsimile of the original Booklets included with HA / ZULU / ShT. The CD comes in an A5 digipak and is limited to 500 copies. "The 3 x 12 / 45 were conceived to represent, "The Symbolism of The Great Work" (Latin: Magnum opus), which is an alchemical term for the process of working with the prima materia to create the philosopher's stone. It has been used to describe personal and spiritual transmutation in the Hermetic tradition, attached to laboratory processes and chemical colour changes, used as a model for the individuation process, and as a device in art and literature. The magnum opus has been carried forward in New Age and neo-Hermetic movements which sometimes attached new symbolism and significance to the processes. The Booklet goes further into the Occult and Esoteric ideas that TAG where researching and implementing into these recordings in 1985/86."
