“It’s a labour of love, even a calling, if you want to get really spiritual about it. This is why 4AD should be championed to this day. 4AD never sold out; it never bought the major label lie; it still releases records many would probably find wilfully obtuse or impenetrable; for all its high-end production values, it’s mesmeric and mood-altering artwork – courtesy of Vaughan Oliver – it’s not a slick operation. 4AD release records because they need to be heard, not because they need to be sold. A subtle point maybe, but its ramifications are powerful enough.”
