NEW LIVE VINYL/CD “PARIS PHILHARMONIE 2015” on sale during the TWR tour

available on the tour dates at the merch stand – But, it will NOT be a tour-exclusive.

update The LP & CD will be available after the initial tour end – around may/early june – in the official band store at: http://www.tindersticks.co.uk/shop-2/ – There is no need to pay a lot of money on ebay or discogs or else . Neil Fraser will be handling the shipment then in late may/early june again. If you have friends in a city they will play until end of may (see tour shedule thread), try to ask them to buy a copy for you at the venue at the evening of the gigs. Sorry, but you have to wait a bit further then.

Update: As the summer dates start in a few days, keep trying your luck at the merch. stands (if available; on festival gigs there might be no merchandise at all as usual) at the venues on the concert evenings.  Obviously the band is so busy touring, that is good news, so the online shop has not got any updated items in the meantime !?!

 

here’s the cover:

Paris-cover-front

from the official  Le Lieu Unique programme booklet: https://issuu.com/lieuunique/docs/prog16_17-eng :

“Tindersticks Minute Bodies

Stuart Staples, singer and songwriter for the English group Tindersticks, took an interest in the films of Frank Percy Smith, naturalist, documentarian, and pioneer of several macrophotography techniques in the early 20th century. He offers us a concert with a film made from Smith’s images, and a soundtrack matching both the documentary and abstract motifs. A new, exciting project for the Tindersticks.”

 

other potential concert locations might be Paris, London et al.

from the interview – S.A.Staples (babelfished version from french original) :

“… I worked for several years on this project, based on the film archives. It is an exploration, often a reinvention of the work of Frank Percy Smith, English director who was, in the 1920s and 1930s, pioneered techniques like time-lapse (effect of ultra- accelerated made frame) or microcinematography. For the first time, he revealed the hidden secrets of nature. I first saw The Acrobatic Fly , his most famous film, then I wanted to know more about his work. And the more I saw his films, more ideas come to me, the music seemed to spring. The title Minute Bodies , I borrowed the scientific treatise Micrographia Robert Hooke, a contemporary of Isaac Newton, who reproduced and released the first images seen through a microscope in 1665.

What musicians involved in this project?
The core is constituted of Thomas Belhom , Christine Ott, multi-instrumentalist David Boulter and myself. It all started during a recording session with them. Thomas and Christine are very special musicians, each unique. I really wanted them to be involved from the start. As for David, he brought enormously to the project. Since then, our journey led us to invite other musicians to join us in this world. It’s a very different approach from an album of Tindersticks. The images are both very strong and musically malleable. There are no rules, sometimes no indication of measurement … We could just destroy us.”

 

Official website news:

not announced officially yet. Also unknown if the project runs under the “tindersticks” name – though initial indications (Movie Concerts page in Nantes & other webbits) indicate that it might be so  –  more infos: t.b.a
