Uno de mis hobbies estos dias es explorar nuevas bandas, etc. siguiendo bandas conocidas. Investigando sobre Blues encontre este grupo, Real Tuesday Weld, y sus videos animados simplemente me hicieron investigar.
'There is a method in their madness' - como dice el anglo.
Algo del grupo aqui:
The Real Tuesday Weld are a British band, fronted by lead singer and founder Stephen Coates. They are known for producing jazzy cabaret-style music with subtle electronica influences, a style dubbed "antique beat" by Coates. They have six albums, several singles and eps and many tracks on compilations. Their combination of big band jazz era sounds with beats has been influential on the current range of 'electro-swing' artists and djs.
The band is named after American film actress Tuesday Weld. Coates once had a dream involving Weld and '30s vocalist Al Bowlly. Coates and others often cite the dream as inspiration for the band and its particular style.
Presently, the band is signed to Crammed (Europe, Australasia, South America) and Six Degrees Records (North America). They have previously released recordings with Antique Beat, Kindercore Records, Dreamy Records, Bambini Records, PIAS recordings and Motorway Records. There was a band by the name of Tuesday Weld that released a CD "Starscene 98" on Glitterhouse Records but they are not related.
"The Clerkenwell Kid" is often cited as the band's producer / re-mixer but is an alter ego for Coates himself; Under the "Characters" section of "The Real Tuesday Weld" website Coates is named as "The Clerkenwell Kid". The 2009 album "The Clerkenwell Kid: Live at the End of the World" is an imaginary live recording of a concert on the 'eve of the apocalypse'. The Clerkenwell Kid is also the main character in a London based mythology Coates has developed around his love of the city's history and stories.
On the Arctic Circle show on Resonance Fm, a London Art radio station, on 10 December 2010. Coates stated that the next The Real Tuesday Weld album will be another 'soundtrack to a book' - the forthcoming novel 'The Last Werewolf' by Glen Duncan to be published by Canongate in the UK and Knopf in the US in summer 2011. He also stated that he had written and produced an album with Joe Coles of UK band The Guillotines for release under the name Lazarus & The Plane Crash in 2011.
