Product description

Product Description

The aptly-named, 'Closure,' is the 12th and final official album by cult London-based Anglo-French self-proclaimed "ghost rock" group, Piano Magic, marking their 20th year of existence. 'Closure,' includes a guest vocal appearance from Peter Milton Walsh, singer of acclaimed Australian chamber pop band, The Apartments on 'Attention To Life.' Audrey Riley, go-to cellist for the likes of Nick Cave, The Smiths, The Cure, The Go-Betweens, Muse, Coldplay (to name but a few) provides luscious string arrangements on many of the tracks here. For this final album, the prime nucleus of Piano Magic were Glen Johnson (guitars, voice, programming), Franck Alba (guitars), Jerome Tcherneyan (drums, percussion), Alasdair Steer (bass) and Paul Tornbohm. Josh Hight of Irons provides backing vocals on 'Closure' and 'Exile.' Oliver Cherer (aka Dollboy) provides brass on 'Attention To Life.' Forming as a lo-fi electronica trio in 1996, Piano Magic's first EP, 'Wrong French' was a favourite of John Peel's (they later recorded a Peel Session for him) and a Single Of The Week in Melody Maker. By 2000, they'd become a full, touring alternative rock group, recording 2 albums for 4AD Records : the soundtrack to Spanish director Bigas Luna's 'Son De Mar' film and 'Writers Without Homes,' most notable for featuring the first recording in 30 years of long-lost folk doyenne, Vashti Bunyan. The album also saw the band's second collaboration with John Grant, back then far from the critically acclaimed torch singer of today. Further collaborators throughout the years included Alan Sparhawk of Low, Brendan Perry of Dead Can Dance, Cornershop, and Tarwater. Often described as darkwave or coldwave, Piano Magic prefer the label, "ghost rock," an emotive combination of post-rock and haunting ethereal electronics – a blend that has proved particularly popular on the Continent - the band have toured as far and wide as France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia, Turkey, Poland, Ukraine, Portugal and Greece in recent years.

Wanted to get hold of some Piano Magic for ages and finally have with the majestic Closer. Like many a classic album, heartbreak lies at the heart of these songs and it's a subject that has led to some particularly beautiful, startling and engaging compositions. Just listen to the sprawling title track, a fresh and vital piece of music by anyone's standards. The cornerstones lie with the likes of The Go-Betweens 16 Lovers Lane (and I really I can't speak higher than that), Comet Gain Paperback Ghosts and perhaps even a little of The Cure. Emotional stuff. Closer is an album with some impressive songwriting and the kinds of lyrics any self respecting indie fan will be pouring over for months. If it's not given the attention it deserves than Closer could well become something of a lost classic.

The most amazing album from one of the best bands of the last twenty years. They went out on such a high. We can only hope Glen gets bored of ending Piano Magic and reforms for a new album and worldwide stadium rock tour.

Have been a fan of Piano Magic for some time and have enjoyed all their albums. Recently purchased Closure and am sorry to think that this is the last. Still, all good things come to an end.
