Final Compilations & Remixes

Last Updated: 2024/05/30/td>
Status: Active
Active Years: ~1982-1987 / 1992-1997 / 2000-Present
Bio: One of Justin Broadrick's first projects, started at a very-young age, Final released several tapes in the early-to-mid '80s through his own Post-Mortem label. The project was shelved around 1987 to make way for Justin's busy schedule with Head of David but was resurrected in 1992. The project's first release on a major label contained mostly-new material with the exception of one track, combining 1980s material into one lengthy song.

Ben Green and Diarmuid Dalton were present during some of the writing/recording sessions between 1993 and 1997. After a pair of LPs, one EP and some limited 7" releases, the project was sidelined again resulting in a long hiatus. During this break, however, Justin was still working with Dalton on material and after more than six years of delays, Final was given third life in 2006. In the years since, this has been one of his more-prolific outputs. While he hasn't collaborated with Dalton as this project since 2009, Justin has released remix material under the Final guise and also worked alongside Dirk Serries (Fear Falls Burning, et al.) and Richard Ramirez (Black Leather Jesus, et al.) along the way.

Final remains an open-ended outlet for Justin, often swaying between minimalistic ambience, power-electronic noise and various genres in between.

Notes
* Originally titled The First Ten-Millionth of a Second, the name was changed before release.
* Label Manifold Records wrote about this release: "It's [sic] poor distribution and availability is due mainly to a relationship we had with a large distributor that went sour. Lesson learned: never extend a third of the pressing to one distributor because what happens if you don't get paid? When you run a tiny label, losing your ass on one release breaks the chain of the next release having funds to propel it toward completion.

* Justin's description of this release is as follows: "The theme of this recording is the invisible world, and one's (my) need for it.

It's necessary for me, this idea of the invisible world, if I am to function on a daily basis. I find comfort in knowing that this is all not just us here and now, that there's something else around us. That there's something within us, that isn't just this frail skin and bones and the immediate environments we drag ourselves around.

I am sure since I was a child, that within me I am many, I am more than this.

I surely can't be just this, so I am motivated by the fantasy and/or promise of more..."
