We love a madly ambitious art project. On this album, Stephen Coates’ art-jazz ensemble provides mistletoe-free music and lycanthropic lyrics to accompany Glen Duncan’s self-explanatory novel The Last Werewolf. Its quite brilliant. Oh, and Piney Gir guests on the album. How circular.
The Real Tuesday Weld's album 'The Last Werewolf' takes Glen Duncan's novel as the backdrop for a widescreen emotional cabaret tailor-made for the iTunes generation, for the album is both a high-concept soundtrack plus a diverse playlist for the eclectic of ear and heart, all held within the band's own genre 'Antique Beat'.
"The album tracks cover a spectrum of styles, from ’30s ballads to gypsy jazz, electro-swing and torch song to minimal electronica, and feature an array of guest vocalists including Joe Coles, Marcella Puppini (Puppini Sisters), Piney Gir and Pinkie Maclure (Pumajaw). In addition, several cuts feature dialogue from the novel, with Duncan among those lending his voice talents."
