Long-Awaited Reissue Of Daniel Miller, Edvard Graham Lewis And B.C. Gilbert’s Sole Collaboration

REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL TAPES

OUT 19 AUGUST 2022 ON MUTE

LISTEN TO THE TITLE TRACK

Pre-order: https://mute.ffm.to/deosisr

A long-awaited remastered release of DUET EMMO’s 1983 album, Or So It Seems, has been announced for 19 August 2022. Or So It Seems is the sole collaboration between The Normal’s Daniel Miller, and Wire’s Edvard Graham Lewis and B.C. Gilbert, and is set for release on double vinyl, CD and digitally. 

The reissue has been recently remastered from the original analogue tapes by Stefan Betke, it is available on vinyl for the first time since its original release and expanded to double vinyl to include the 8-minute re-mixed 12” b-side version of the title track, ‘Heart of Hearts (Or So It Seems)’. 

Listen to the title track, a visionary electronic ballad, here:


The original 8-track album, an assemblage of electronic sound collage, drone and abstract art pop, is perfect for re-appraisal, having been previously a somewhat overlooked album from its makers catalogues. Daniel Miller (The Normal / Silicon Teens and founder of Mute), Edvard Graham Lewis and B.C. Gilbert (of Wire, Dome and solo projects) were busy with their own individual work but made time for the new trio to record in the periods between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day in ’81 and ’82 with legendary engineer Eric Radcliffe at their favoured studio, Blackwing in London.

Duet Emmo’s pioneering hybrid electronics are mirrored in the project name – an anagram of Mute and Dome – and in the album’s striking artwork, a collage by supreme animators and filmmakers, the Brothers Quay redesigned by Bart van Damme. 

Or So It Seems is released on special edition white vinyl, as a limited edition of 400 on orange vinyl via Bleep (both with high definition download), CD and digitally on 19 August 2022.
