from the SOHO Theatre:

“Unfortunately this week’s shows will not be going ahead as Stuart (singer) has laryngitis.

tindersticks are sad to announce that they have been forced to postpone their 4 nights of shows in London’s Soho Theatre due to a highly unlikely recurrence of Stuart Staples’ laryngitis.

We are currently working closely with the band to reschedule the events as soon as possible and will be in touch with more information as soon as we have it. Updates will be featured on our website

For refunds please contact the box office on 0207 478 0100 or if you wanted to stay on the lists and be rebooked to another upcoming tinderstick show, we can keep your order.

Kind regards,

Soho Theatre”

Statement on the “soundquality” on TSR album

freshly in (found on the official fb newsstream) tinderbit:

“The band has received a technical question from a fan (Jörg Lippmann) regarding the sound quality on the new record (compression and clippings). Here’s a reply from the legendary John Dent at Loud Mastering who masters all of Stuart’s music and has a reputation which is hard won, well deserved and beyond reproach.

“Stuart went for a particular sound that was reminiscent of 70s vinyl, warts n all, (Roxy music -ish) it’s a bit compressed, not massively, but then most cds have some compression, and there are definitely a few dirty sounding sections, that are more noticeable on headphones, if you want to be fussy then the writer has a point but this is art, and the sound is there for Stuart’s desired emotional effect and it is very effective and it was difficult to get just right, so….”

As John has mentioned, the sound of the record is as Stuart wanted it to be for all sorts of specific reasons.”
