*300 copies limited edition* Describing his ideas behind "F(our) Ward", Edley ODowd notices that the combination of sound and visuals were “essential to delivering a message”- points out Edley talking about his foray into new territory. “I wanted to create something of nightmares and bliss” explains EdleyODowd when asked to discuss the combination of visuals and sound presented on his latest solo release "F(our) Ward".

ODowd, a long-time veteran of various musical scenes, has collaborated and performed with many musical luminaries (Genesis P-Orridge, Deborah Harry, LeneLovich, Tony Conrad, Shilpa Ray), as well as being a member of Toilet Boys, Psychic TV, Kylesa and his brand-new death rock band Scorpion Tea.

Initially released as an ultra-limited cassette release via Flesh Prison/DeathBed Tapes, "F(our) Ward" is coming out in the rest of the world via 13, as an extended version featuring three bonus tracks and expanded artwork by ODowd. “I am proud to present what I consider to be the complete version of this art and music”, stresses Edley, talking about the unity of two inseparable components of his creativity. “The video clips that accompany these songs are designed to be trance-induced launchpads for the audio and vice-versa” – admits ODowd: “A world within our own, in which we can see and hear new and exciting things”. The videos accompanying the release of "F(our) Ward" were shot on various locations in Mexico and Colombia, ODowd’s goal was to present a visual environment one could listen to the music within .
