When post-punk agitators the Pop Group disbanded in 1980, Mark Stewart briefly collaborated with the New Age Steppers and, the following year, embarked on his first solo project with producer Adrian Sherwood and several Steppers personnel. While Learning to Cope with Cowardice was no less confrontational than some of the Pop Group's work, it left behind the harsh, frenetic avant-funk of the Bristol band to foray into more experimental, dub-oriented territory

Mark Stewarts first post-Pop Group release was as 'Mouth 2', the 1982 single "Who's Hot". Two releases followed with On-U associates under the name 'Mark Stewart & The Maffia' - the "Jerusalem EP" in 1982, and the 1983 album "Learning to Cope with Cowardice". While "Learning to Cope with Cowardice" was no less confrontational than some of the Pop Group's work, it left behind the harsh, frenetic avant-funk of the Bristol band to foray into more experimental, dub-oriented territory.

The groundbreaking debut solo album, Learning To Cope With Cowardice, by visionary post-punk iconoclast Mark Stewart, is to be given a definitive reissue alongside The Lost Tapes, a newly discovered cache of unreleased material - described by Mark and Adrian Sherwood as distinct primitivism. After disbanding The Pop Group in the wake of a final performance at a momentous CND rally in 1980, Stewart had grown disillusioned with the UK’s music industry. As it was in the early 1980s so it is now, Learning To Cope With Cowardice is a masterwork of mutant design and a rude awakening of extraordinary bite. 2LP - Double Black Vinyl with Insert. 2LP+ - Limited Double Clear Vinyl with Insert.
