Anti-Pop Consortium Sign to Big Dada, Return from Hiatus with European Tour and New LP; Meanwhile, Anti-Poop Consortium Bottoms-Out Due to Crippling Irregularity, Beans Blamed

It’s been a spell since the world heard from legendary glitch-hoppers Anti-Pop Consortium. Following the group’s last meeting on 2003’s Anti-Pop vs. Matthew Shipp (TMT Review), creative differences and side projects caused the boys to be fairly anti-Anti-Pop over the following years. After ostensibly reforming in 2007, little was heard from the brothers Anti, aside from Beans’ badass ’08 solo tip Thorns -- until today! Not only is Anti-Pop legitimately back in the rappin’ saddle, they’ve found a home at Big Dada Recordings for their first record in seven years, Fluorescent Black. Already well under way, the album will hit stores on 9/9/09, a day that will more than likely be overshadowed by September’s inevitable 99 Boadrum.

In the meantime, Anti-Pop earned a choice spot at the fan-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties fest in Minehead, UK, followed by a short European jaunt in May and June. Anti-Pop will eventually end back up at ATP for the fest’s September NYC entry. Good to have you back, fellows.
