The 30 minute soundtrack for Mark Leckey’s autobiographical film installation Dream English Kid 1964-1999AD. Housed in a sleeve designed by Leckey, and mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy, this vinyl-only edition is limited to 500 copies.
In Leckey’s own words: “Dream English Kid began when I found on YouTube an audio recording of Joy Division playing at a small club in Liverpool. A gig I’d been present at but could barely remember. As I listened I wondered if, through enhancing the audio, I could actually find my fifteen-year-old self in the recording. That led me to think would it be possible; at this point, with so much imagery available in the digital archives, to reconstruct my memoirs through all the DVD re-releases, eBay ephemera, YouTube uploads and above all the resource of the internet itself; the way it can actualize half-forgotten memories and produce a niche for seemingly every remembrance.”
