As part of the timely reissue programme around Adrian Sherwood's legendary On-U Sound releases, Mark Stewart's Learning To Cope With Cowardice must remain the most extraordinary jewel in the crown of post-punk glory. Before you go any further, be warned: this was not designed as easy listening Stewart, former vocalist with Bristol agit-funk-rockers, The Pop Group, was a man driven by demons. Contemporary interviews had him muttering darkly about police surveillance and underground missile silos. It's this track which best sums up the joy of this album.

Stewart's "Jerusalem" embodies the multiple sonic facets of this album, juxtaposing jarring electronics, hectoring vocals, and heavy beats with more expansive layers of melody. Ironically, although Stewart doesn't use his own words, this ranks among his most powerful political statements.

learning To Cope With Cowardice', The Groundbreaking Debut Solo Album By Visionary Post Punk Iconoclast Mark Stewart, Is To Be Given A Definitive Reissue Alongside 'the Lost Tapes', A Newly Discovered Cache Of Unreleased Material. learning To Cope With Cowardice' Is Released On Double Cd, Double Vinyl With Digital Download Code And Separately As Digital Download Albums. As It Was In The Early 1980s So It Is Now, 'learning To Cope With Cowardice' Is A Masterwork Of Mutant Design And A Rude Awakening Of Extraordinary Bite.

Mark Stewart himself perceives ‘The Lost Tapes’ as a document that now possesses a storied significance: It was a real adventure discovering this forbidden history, a twisted tale of Muswell hillbillies, French pirates and a Dutch schizophrenic doctor doing psychic archaeology.
