An all round perfect item for us. Irma Vep is a musician very, very close to our hearts. Edwin is from North Wales, now in Manchester, soon to be Stockholm, Sweden and is in our minds one of the most accomplished songwriters and music makers in the UK. Go on, I'll say it, he's one of the best IN THE WORLD. Songs Of Guilt is an extended work compiling some hits and some never heards all in one place. We couldn't recommend this more for fans of one man theatrics, country, folk and weirdo off shoot stuff. Produced by almost co-workers, but above all best of friends, Comfortable on a Tightrope who consistently put out the best releases we hear.

"the latest salvo from mancunian avatar irma vep packs a serious emotional punch. it's also a record that sees irma vep delve deep into zero-fi electronics, drone and degraded glitchiness to supplement his macabre vocals and guitar work. somewhat like the rebel, country teasers' frontman, irma vep illustrates his essential misanthropy with a healthy dollop of mystery and cruelty. there's plenty of guitar seams running through the songs too, our solo maestro hasn't abandoned his six-stringed friend, but the lengths he's gone to on 'songs of guilt' to make the listener revel in discomfort surely has to be applauded." - Rough Trade
