King of Number 33 [Import]
(Argentina - Import)
2012 album from the British Prog Rock band. Written by Andy Ditchfield and Tony Wright, King of Number 33 centers around the 27 minute epic title track 'King of Number 33'. The six chapter long song describes the downfall of a local eccentric from singer Tony Wright's childhood, arising from the lunatic's obsession with busses and past Kings and Queens of England. To this tale, Andy Ditchfield applies his broad musical palette. The album features a vocal guest appearance by no other than the biggest mid-1980's teen idol Nik Kershaw('Wouldn't It Be Good') on the song 'Memo', the closing track of King of Number 33. Nik is joined by Ainsley Wills, a great friend of the band and one of the North East's finest guitarists. Ainsley lays down the first of two guitar solos in 'Memo'. Earmusic.
