IBF (Ideas Beyond Filth)

Alias:
Gender: Male
Country: United Kingdom
Description: An English group considered maintainers of the experimental varieties of postindustrial aesthetics in music. Although its official debut was in 1994, its members: Stephen CAMMACK (b. 1962) and David UDEN (b. 1963) had worked together or appeared separately from 1979 to 1985 in various rock and new wave bands, such as E.S.P. DISKRD, DIET OF WORMS and MU?HVIERTEL (the names of the latter two gave the group’s moniker, DIETER MU?H). They had put out only a few low-run cassette releases, much in the industrial music aesthetics, composed with sparing instru- mentation (tapes and radio receiver). In the late 1980s they both focused on their own projects. UDEN performed both solo and with the groups JOUISSANCE and HOLE (EYAS MEDIA), while CAMMACK led the obscure IDEAS BEYOND FILTH project, which included Tim BAYES (b. 1961), who from 1994 to 1997 was also the member of DIETER MU?H. After recording the Black Square album with Colin POTTER of NURSE WITH WOUND as producer, the band decided to abandon the synthesizer sound they’d used until then and rely on various analogue multi-effect units, sound sampling and modula- tion devices instead. Implementation of those technical changes to the music creation process translated into a corresponding stylistic shift: instead of dark ambient it now offered formally heterogeneous works, featuring dense sonic textures and expressive that were well-considered in terms of their deployment of a bruitist approach. As a result of a fascination with the occult and parascientific works by the group’s most recent member, an American Lon Milo DUQUETTE, DIETER MU?H have sought to imbue their music with an atmosphere of magic imagery and symbols. In 2009 UDEN left leaving Stephen CAMMACK to continue DIETER MU?H as a solo project, drafting in Tim BAYES for studio recordings. From 1985 to 1990 CAMMACK and SYSTEMLAW VIOLATOR (an art organisation with Sean A. RORKE, Greg RORKE, Andrew D. WRIGHT and Gary S. WARMINGTON) ran an indepen- dent label CARNIFEX RECORDINGS. In 2008 he set up the HAEMOCCULT RECORDINGS label for his own pursuits.
