“Songs for The Last Werewolf” is an album of music inspired by Glen Duncan’s book of the same title. It sits somewhere between the soundtrack of a non-existent movie, adding atmosphere to the unfilmed scenes, and with the mixture of music and snatches of spoken word – presumably dialogue from the novel – a musical interpretation of the novel. Here though the music tells the story arc by itself that it could stand alone well enough without these additional narrative hints.
Perfect and dazzling latest release from The Clerkenwell Kid and his band of Merry Men – The Real Tuesday Weld – returning with part-theatrical retelling of the Glen Duncan book, 'The Last Werewolf' and part-mythical-musical mystery tour through genres and rabbit-holes eternal…
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.
PopMatters introduces us to Glen Duncan and his novel 'The Last Werewolf' & Stephen Coates' musical rendering of the latter. This music review, published by the international online magasine, takes a look at the matching public profiles of both author Duncan and artist Coates, and how their literary and musical geniuses combined is a recipe for a heavenly mix!
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'.
"Stephen Coates really got into this Last Werewolf project. Maybe a little too into it. Taking Glen Duncan’s novel of the same name as his inspiration, he’s created not only one of my favorite records this year but also a playlist of werewolf songs."
The novel, described as “sexy, violent, and civilized,” centers on the titular werewolf discovering at last another like him, to join in fighting the anti-supernatural corporations threatening his species. Duncan reads from The Last Werewolf while Stephen Coates, of the Real Tuesday Weld, performs from the soundtrack — both of which are on sale.
