Product Description

The inspiration for Dark Flowers came whilst Paul was reading Sam Shephard's award winning autobiography The Motel Chronicles . Taking a series of passages from the book and creating a basic soundtrack he then approached the artists for their unique vocal take on the content, before adding slide guitar, banjo and found sounds to create the finished composition. That the likes of Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago , Brian Eno's Another Green World and Bruce Langhorne's The Hired Hand were influences on the shape and sound of the album will be audible to the discerning listener. All the artists on the album have worked with Paul previously. His working relationship with Pete Murphy spans nine solo albums and twenty five years and says of his work on Dark Flowers; Paul was my right hand man on a run of albums from Love Hysteria through to Cascade and we are still writing together. This work (The Dark Flowers) is important and deserves the support of fans of our work together . For Jim Kerr, this unique approach to writing delivered very positive lyrical results, The images that came to me as I listened repeatedly to Paul's soothing and ghostlike electro desert songs, became the backbone for so many of the lyrics that eventually poured forth .

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, intelligent album 27 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My copy of Radioland arrived yesterday. I knew on first listen it was going to be a favourite. This is thoughtful rock, featuring a variety of vocalists. I hate making comparisons, so I won't. The singing, the writing, the playing, the production are all thoughtful. And ... there is not a single duff track or "filler" on it.

If the names of the vocalists intrigue you ... Jim Kerr, Pete Murphy, Dot Allison, Shelley Poole ... you won't regret this album. And, if you've not heard Catherine AD before (I've been following her for 6 years), well there's a real treat (2 actually) in store.
