73 years young, the original god of hellfire returns with very probably the most surprising and astonishing album of his career, and his first in 10 years. A cross-generational outing with jim mortimore and sam walker, this is a joyous, triumphant, energetic and ambitious tour de force that shows arthur to more relevant today than when he had his number one hit with 'fire' and was pioneering electronica (take note kids: first artist to ever use a drum machine live). A genre-spanning, time-travelling, world-bending, heavy-grooving and massively eclectic collection of songs with arthur's vital, soulful and acrobatic voice at its heart. He creeps up behind like the original war-painted mighty boosh, kicking the likes of tom waits and screaming jay hawkins into the orchestra pit. A celebration of life, he knows the unkown and the unknown knows him. Take note.
