'Tear Us Apart' Exclusive: The Real Tuesday Weld Meets The Last Werewolf
by Mike Ragogna
On July 12th, author Glen Duncan's book The Last Werewolf will hit the shelves in a unique way. An identically titled album by the UK group The Real Tuesday Weld will serve as the book's counterpart, a "soundtrack" that will feature 19 cuts ranging from thirties ballads through gypsy jazz, electro-swing and torch song to minimal electronica. Guest vocalists joining TRTW's Stephen Coates and company are Joe Coles, Marcella Puppini (Puppini Sisters), Piney Gir, and Pinkie Maclure (Pumajaw), and the album's unique cabaret/electronic approach is a second installment of The Real Tuesday Weld's collaboration with Duncan--the previous effort, 2004's I Lucifer, also serving as a soundtrack.
A mini-tour featuring Duncan reading over Coates' music (as on some of the album's tracks) will begin on July 12 at The Strand in New York City, adding Brooklyn's Greenlight Books (July 13), Los Angeles' Skylight Books (July 15), and San Francisco's City Lights Bookstore at The Tosca Café (July 19) with more dates to be announced.
The Real Tuesday Weld currently is experiencing renewed popularity due to both Chevrolet's usage of the band's classic "I Love The Rain" and three featured songs on the hit videogame L.A. Noire. The following is an exclusive streamer of TRTW's new single "Tear Us Apart," its video to be released by mid-July.
