Product Description

Product Description

The Morris Quinlan Experience - The Morris Quinlan Experience

Amazon.co.uk

This haunting, chilling album came about after a chance meeting between reluctant poet Simon Macken, Hammond organist Dave Maughan and TV producer Alan Morton at an Edinburgh Festival poetry reading. Macken, the lyricist and vocalist, lives in a dark, unforgiving world. Broken beds rattle in corners; ancient iron freight trains rumble and clank in and out of the rain; white families of swans float out across the Wear. Everything is epic, cast in stone, fearsomely male. On The Morris Quinlan Experience, Macken speaks with a sardonic relish, while behind him brass sounds out and drums roar like thunder across distant hills. Tracks such as the tortured "Colder Nights" and epic "Sacred Whore Blues" recall serious, intense artists of such stature as Leonard Cohen, Franz Kafka and Ennio Morricone, all for very different reasons. --Jerry Thackray

Format: Audio CD
A wonderful album that still sounds fresh and different four years after it's release. Macken's haunting poetry powerfully orchestrated by Maughan and Morton, the black mood of the album reflects its recording during winter nights in a studio hidden behind a terraced row in Newcastle. The album was also produced by Maughan who has moved on to produce a string of renowned albums. Sadly there was to be no such future for the group who split up some months later, leaving this as it's unique legacy. Enjoy.
