"Leyland Kirby - the artist also known as The Caretaker, The Stranger and V/vm - is launching a new series of vinyl releases. The series goes under the name Intrigue & Stuff (words the late Martin Hannett once used to describe Tony Wilson's Factory operation), and will be delivered in four (hand-stamped white label) 12" parts. The first, Intrigue & Stuff Vol.1, features six new tracks with a total running time of 30 minutes. Following 2009's deeply introspective and melancholic, some would say misanthropic, Sadly, The Future Is No Longer What It Was, the first installment of Intrigue & Stuff finds Germany-based Brit Kirby going for a more widescreen sound. Tellingly, key track "Live For The Future, Long For The Past" was used to soundtrack recent BBC4 documentary series Everything And Nothing, in which Professor Jim Al-Khalili sought to "explore the true size and shape of the universe and delve into the amazing science behind apparent nothingness". Intrigue & Stuff Vol.1 was mastered at Dubplates + Mastering in Berlin." (Fact Mag) limited repress, 200 copies on clear vinyl
