Avant-garde vocalist, electronics innovator and post-punk artist PHEW has shared details of a long-awaited reissue of her 1992 album Our Likeness, set for release on Mute on February 17th, 2023.
Our Likeness saw Phew return to Conny Plank’s legendary studio in Cologne (Kraftwerk, Neu! D.A.F. etc) after more than a decade when Chrislo Haas (1956-2004 – one of the driving forces in modern electronic music, and an important figure in the Neue Deutsche Welle scene) invited her to collaborate. Haas, who had met Phew briefly when Plank engineered her debut solo album in 1981, arranged for Alexander Hacke (guitar / Einstürzende Neubauten) and Thomas Stern (bass / Crime & the City Solution) to join. Can’s peerless drummer Jaki Liebezeit also reunited with Phew to collaborate alongside this new generation of German experimental musicians and the resulting album gets its reissue on February 17th on clear vinyl, CD, and digitally.
