Artist: SHAUN RYDER
Who: Madchester hero(ine). Happy Mondays and Black Grape frontman.
Guest vocalist on countless collaborations. TV celebrity with several books
New album: VISITS FROM FUTURE TECHNOLOGY
Info: Ryder‘s personal manager and legendary Creation Records mastermind
Alan McGee found enough songs recorded back around 2010 in hot Los Angeles
to fabricate a solo Shaun Ryder album, who probably has no idea he has ever
been in L.A.
Louder Than War says: “Shaun is no stranger to the continuous, endless cyclical twists
and turns of the industry conveyor belt and all that comes with its ebbs and flows, its ups
and downs, its peaks and pits. ”Someone is given a fresh start, and six months later, they’re repeating the exact same thing through bad habits, or whatever, or robbing, or whatever.
So it’s sort of all that shit going on. Personally giving a dig at someone”.
Full review here. Score: 9/10.
Turn Up The Volume: Want to be a rock star? Order Shaun‘s new book and learn. He knows all about it. Ahead of it, welcome the intoxicating teacher back from never being away. And? This guy is genuine. No boring birds and bees for the Manc man, no arty farty shit either. What you see and hear is what you get from this eternal desperado. And there’s enough sassy stuff to fill dance floors with.
Electro pop, fervid funk, hip and hop, trippy acid house, sweaty swagger, but also some unexpected soulful moodiness (Monster / Crazy Bitches / Turn Off The Air). After a couple of spins it feels like the dope expert accomplished one of his best works ever. He’ll twist your melons, once again. FACT! Bob’s your uncle, folks. Hallelujah!
