In Dreams – David Lynch Revisited (with Stuart Staples, Terry Edwards et al.)

20th June in London more details & tickets here: http://www.barbican.org.uk/music/event-detail.asp?ID=16240

In Dreams: David Lynch Revisited
with Conor O’Brien (Villagers), Mick Harvey, Jehnny Beth (Savages), Cibo Matto, Sophia Brous, Stealing Sheep and Stuart Staples (Tindersticks)

“The world premiere of a new live homage to the songs and music from David Lynch’s films

From the romantic songs of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, to the violence of iconic scenes in Blue Velvet, Wild At Heart or Lost Highway, sound is a vital component of David Lynch’s films – it’s in the wind, in the air, and in the people’s thoughts; his carefully chosen songs conveying his characters’ mental states.

Lynch’s songbook includes original versions by Roy Orbison, David Bowie, Chris Isaak, Samuel Barber, Marilyn Manson and Elvis Presley. In Dreams brings together a stellar cast of singers to reinterpret these classic songs.

His partnership with composer Angelo Badalamenti gave birth to one of the most celebrated soundtracks ever created for television – as viewers around the globe asked themselves ‘who killed Laura Palmer?’ to the ethereal tones of Julee Cruise’s voice.

Immerse yourself into the mood and atmosphere of Lynch’s universe, with landmark instrumental tracks and exciting new versions of songs from his films, performed by a superb band assembled and led by musical director David Coulter – last seen on the Barbican stage in Beck: Song Reader Live and Rain Dogs Revisited.

‘Sound is almost a drug. It’s so pure that when it goes in your ears, it instantly does something to you’ David Lynch

The band
David Coulter original concept, musical and artistic direction, saw, percussions and other instruments
Terry Edwards horns
Thomas Bloch cristal baschet, ondes martenot, glass harmonica
David Okumu guitar
Tom Herbert bass
Seb Rochford drums “

Say Goodbye to the City (A6LY version)

 

 

update:

some comments why they choose this tracklisting … hmmm :

 

“1. Friday Night (2002) is a maverick song, looking for a home. The seeds of this song were sown in response to Claire Denis’s Vendredi Soir before the band pulled out of making the soundtrack for the film. A stripped to the bone version appeared on my first solo album “Lucky dog recordings”. It was then picked up by the band in 2011 for the Claire Denis soundtrack tour and finally became what it was always looking to be.

2. Marseilles Sunshine (2003) was written for the band just before it imploded. This song has been dreaming of this version for 10 years.

3. She’s gone (1994) See No 8.

4. Dying slowly (2001) was written, in some way, as a response to Kurt Cobain’s death. In my own small way I felt divorced from our audience; both needing to and hating engaging with them. Even though I felt that ‘Dying slowly’ had a huge element of defiance and even victory in its essence, our band was feeling pretty resigned and the original became a pretty resigned recording.

5. If you are looking for a way out (1999) is our adopted song. I am still surprised that as I stood at the side of the school disco waiting for Nag nag nag to be played, I was listening more than I gave myself credit for. I never imagined that this song would stay with me for the rest of my life. We had one attempt at it on our album ‘Simple Pleasure’ – We were trying so hard to be loose.

6. Say goodbye to the city (2003) I am so thankful now to hold this version of a song that is so close to how it was originally conceived. I thought it had gone forever, and every time I heard it I would hang my head.

7. Sleepy song (1994) See No 8

8. A night in (1994) is a song from our second album. After making our first album something happened, my writing took a huge leap. A few months earlier I could not imagine trying to write a song like ‘A night in’. Unfortunately my singing and playing did not catch up until much later. These are songs that have proved to me to need a tenderness and understanding that I was unable to give them as a younger man on a first meeting, they have grown, their sentiments have grown, they talk about so many of the experience I have had since then.

9. I know that Loving (1999) is another song from ‘Simple pleasure’. A breakthrough song that we didn’t fully understand at the time. I remember trying so hard, spending hours singing this song in the studio. I felt there was a glass ceiling above me that I just couldn’t break through.

10. What are you fighting for? (2006) is a song looking to belong somewhere. This song was supposed to close ‘The Hungry saw’, it just never found itself in time for that moment.

New Album Release Date (14.10.2013) & Video Teaser of Across Six Leap Years

teaser for A6LY: 

A6LY teaser
“We are proud to announce the release of our 10th studio album, ‘across six leap years’, on 14 October 2013. Recorded at Studio 2, Abbey Road between 6-9 April 2013, ‘across six leap years’ features 10 new versions of songs from throughout our history.

‘Recording these songs again was not so much about righting past mistakes or inadequacies, but more about the power of now. Something that’s been growing since the film shows, something that made us recognise how we feel now, and connecting that to our past feel important.
Walking up to Abbey Road, it could easily have overcome us. But it had nothing to do with its past. We weren’t there to take photos on the crossing. I didn’t think about playing the Lady Madonna piano. I’d like to say it was just another studio, but sadly, that’s not true anymore. It’s one of the only studios of its kind left. And it wasn’t about our past either. These songs feel like cover versions. Someone else’s music we feel we had something new to bring to. Abbey Road could have been a big slap on the back. Or a big punch in the face. But it felt natural. It’s where we should be. It’s important that we got here and to give ourselves some credit. It’s also important to give these songs a new life.
And so much more fun than a greatest hits album. 21 years of tindersticks. This isn’t a selected highlights. It just shows how far we’ve come.’
David Boulter 2013”
