Mr. Dave Allen from Gang of Four and Shriekback has taken a liking to a cover I recorded of Shriekback's sublime "Faded Flowers". You can read what he had to say here.
You can get the track from Alonetone.
I am incredibly flattered. Both Gang of Four and Shriekback were big influences on my musical development.
Dave has been a big advocate of the next music business model and is continuing to promote new stuff over at his Pampelmoose site.
This track was one of the last and best things I recorded at The Hive in L.A. before shutting it down and moving to San Francisco. Ace producer Ken Kessie helped with the mix and the always fantastic Anne Kadrovich contributed backing vocals.
The original track has long been a favorite of mine and is a standout on Shriekback's wonderful "Oil and Gold" album.
