Literate, jazzy art-pop/cabaret practitioners headline this rather special event, with a performance from their new album, ‘The Last Werewolf’. The latter is a soundtrack to the book of the same name by horror merchant Glen Duncan, who will be here reading extracts.
A widescreen cinematic emotional cabaret, Soundtrack for the Last Werewolf is the sixth The Real Tuesday Weld album and follows the Sunday Times and The Independent album of the week The London Book of the Dead. It’s been released by Six Degrees in the US on July 12th and internationally thereafter.
Like I, Lucifer before it, The Last Werewolf is inspired by a novel by Mancunian author Glen Duncan who stated in interview that The Real Tuesday Weld has “the depressing knack of getting into three verses and a chorus what I’ve just spent 100,000 words on”. The themes on the record are transformation and the loss of what you love (werewolves being such inconsiderate lovers), and it has the right degree of violence, debauchery and decadence, suffused with film noir atmospherics.
