Paul Draper 'Spooky Action' 2xLP + 7"
As the frontman and songwriter of one of the most iconic bands of the late '90s, the creative force that brought the classic hit single Wide Open Space and the Number 1 album Attack Of The Grey Lanternwith Mansun, Paul Draper's talent preceeds him. Debut solo album Spooky Action features the glistening synthetic soul single Things People Want and warped voodoo psych grat-track Don't Poke The Bear. Lyrically, it’s a biting and brutally honest record – an autobiography set to captivating and addictive melodies. Taking its cue from the two EPs and recorded in collaboration with Catherine AD (The Anchoress) and long timeMansun collaborator P Dub, the record’s eleven tracks also veer through genres, from the warped, razored rock'n'rollin Grey House to the glorious widescreen analogue pop of Jealousy Is A Powerful Emotion. Spooky Action represents Draper's strongest, most consistent set of songs to date – a lifetime’s work condensed into just over an hour of perfectly formed music.
Limited double 180 Gram Black Heavyweight Vinyl with exclusive bonus 7". It features No Ideas (featuring Steven Wilson) and Friends Make The Worst Enemies (Public Service Broadcasting Remix). Limited to 500 Copies.
