“Recorded on Valentine’s Eve 2012 – the night before the apocalypse – and beamed back in a dream”.
Stephen was plunged into another psychic whirlwind whose twin axes were the death of his father and the birth of Poppy within in a two week period. So he decided to write a suite of songs describing the arc of a London soul from before birth to after death. He couldn’t cram it all in but wanted to cover the stuff that seemed important to him at the time: love, betrayal, dreams, love, death, dreams, jealousy, loss, joy, dreams, drugs, love, death – the usual stuff.
As ever Stephen commissioned videos: George Fort’s fabulously cute Max Fleisher style animation ‘Kix’ , Eva Vives ’Waltz for One’ (featuring incredible French theatre performer Aurelia Thierre), Catherine Anyango’s soul ascending through London for ‘Blood Sugar Love’ and Ro Rao’s lump-in-the-throat elegy-for-a-dead-friend “Bringing the Body Back Home”.
The boxset which can be bought here comes with bespoke packaging – containing various hand picked items of ephemera and a limited edition, gorgeous Last Will and Testament designed by illustrator Catherine Anyango.
