Lucky Dog Recordings 03-04 [Import]
Debut solo album from the lead singer of the Tindersticks. This album grew out of a collection of one-off recordings Stuart did at home. Accidental piano loops, old trombone ideas, snippets of rhythms and drones, a recent purchase of an old Lowrey organ all came together with the promise of something new. After years of making beautifully crafted music with the band, he felt more than ready to appreciate the ugly and awkward. Over time each idea asked for more and gradually other players came 'round and helped them along. David Boulter played much of the organ and harmonium, Terry Edwards played the saxes, Thomas Belhom added the drums and Yann Tiersen played the piano on 'She Don't Have to Be Good to Me'. Lucky Dog/Beggars Banquet Records. 2005.
