Mr. Chop on Now-Again Records

Lightworlds EP advance digital release

  • October 27, 2008

Coz Littler, aka Mr. Chop, has been kicking around for a while now. He’s released music on his own A.P.E. imprint, on Gerald “Jazzman” Short’s Stark Reality label and most recently on German-based Jazz&Milk Records.

We’re not saying that Lightworlds – his Now-Again debut – should make you forget about those records. They’re great records. But this is a different Mr. Chop. Let’s just say: this EP a helluva introduction, or reintroduction, to this burgeoning talent.

Assisted by Malcolm Catto (drums) and Jake Ferguson (bass) of The Heliocentrics (Out There - NA 5031) amongst a host of other crack UK session musicians, Mr. Chop offers up a futuristic mixture of fuzzy psychedelia, funk, jazz and musique concrete informed by years of record collecting and engineering at his Cheshire-based Ape Studios.

Mr. Chop - Lightworlds, a 7-track EP, is available now at the Stones Throw Store, and will be released on vinyl in December.

Chop's album will be released on Now-Again in 2009.
