We were saddened to hear of the passing of Modal (Phil) Roberts yesterday. He was one of the earliest collaborators to the German Shepherd experiment and released two EPs and a joint project with Ian Moss (in his Ion-Morph phase) before leaving us to form his own label “Altitude Records” as well as embark on a range of projects including “Alt. Karaoke” and “Polymatherapy”. Always an entertaining and rule breaking DJ his radio shows often supported and promoted our early releases
Probably best known for his work with the latter versions of Marc Riley’s Creepers and the remarkable and memorable track “Derbyshire” Modal was a talented multi-instrumentalist, artist, and film-maker.
We have set all Modals releases to pay what you want but and anyone does contribute to the music we will donate the money to Cancer Research.
