Alex Rex 'Andromeda' LP
Alex Rex is the nom de guerre of Alex Neilson- drummer to some of the most innovative musicians on the international underground including Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Shirley Collins, Jandek and Current 93.
Alex has synthesised the agonised self-invention and charismatic death-drive of these artists into his solo vehicle- abandoning the Folk Rock pomp of his previous band Trembling Bells for something darker and wilder. Following the critical acclaim of two previous albums- Vermillion and Otterburn- Rex is back with his most raw and adventurous album yet: Andromeda.
Featuring a consolidated line up of long-time collaborator Rory Haye, with Audrey Bizouerne (Rev Magnetic/ Bill Wells) and Georgia Seddon (Mike Her- on/The Incredible String Band) along with guest appearances from Shirley Collins and Stevie Jackson, Andromeda is a gut-punch to the brain. Self-loathing has never sounded so sexy.
