Acid House is protest music. Born in Chicago, the addictive sound was imported to the UK and spread widely in youth culture during the 1980s ‘Second Summer of Love’. Artists such as KLF, Underground Resistance and Psychic TV all used Acid House/Techno to communicate their political activism or manifesto. Over thirty years on, Yuri Suzuki’s Acid Brexit effectively employs the genre to comment on Brexit and his position as a Japanese artist based for many years in the UK.
This special edition blue vinyl pressing, with cover design by Zoe Anspach, was released to coincide with the original Article 50 ‘Brexit’ deadline on Friday 29 March 2019. Produced in association with Pentagram Design, Acid Brexit is also available to listen to for free online and is also accompanied by an animated video created by Jody Hudson-Powell and Luke Powell.
Yuri Suzuki was appointed Stanley Picker Design Fellow at Kingston University in 2016, with his solo exhibition Furniture Music staged at Stanley Picker Gallery in Spring 2018.
