Artist Info

New Asia

Powered by Audioscrobbler™New Asia - Gates (1982 Situation 2)

The person behind this album of disjointed sound scapes and abstract beats was Ian Little, better known for his production of Duran Duran's 3rd. album "7 & The Ragged Tiger".

Ian started his career in music working for 3+ years at Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera's Gallery Studio and it was during this time that Gates was completed. Ian came up with the foundation of each track but then gave the assorted musicians involved freedom to come up with their own parts, which Ian then edited, treated and mixed to create the finished album.

Not a commercial success, "Gates" was non the less well received within the media and Lynden Barber did a full page article in Melody Maker on July 10th 1982 where he described the album as an "...imaginative combination of loose improvisation, spikily twisting themes, sound collage and drum machines...underpinned by the tension of modern industrialism" ! So he liked it then! "Gates" - preceeded by the 7" single, "The Central Proposition" also on Situation 2 - is is the only album New Asia did, although Ian is currently working on a follow up, some 25 years later.
