BRIAN HENRY HOOPER delivers his 3rd solo album in a total expression of control and dominion on his targets and ideas. This is,
with no doubt, his best work up to date and, again, he has chosen
the cream of the crop to surround him and cover his back for this work. Needed to mention that MICK
HARVEY has produced it and played all through the album, this work has a reminiscent taste of the late 80s
and early 90s records by NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS, as well as deep influence on it of the 70s LOU
REED and DAVID BOWIE. All of it mixed with the vicious and swampy touch of Brian Hooper's worldwide
known band THE BEASTS OF BOURBON. Besides of MICK HARVEY we can hear in this album Brian's band
mates in THE BEASTS OF BOURBON, SPENCER P. JONES and CHARLIE OWEN, as well as PENNY
IKINGER, apart of the presence of his usual musicians at BRIAN HOOPER BAND.
This album is absolutely
delicate, exquisite, distiguished and mature, as well as being, at the same time, swampy, vicious and full of
intensity. Bang! Records is putting out a deluxe vinyl edition. A true masterpiece where all tracks, one
after another, are simply perfect!
