• lord cut-glass Lord Cut-Glass (digipak CD, £3.95)

    label: chemikal underground

    Recording as Lord Cut-Glass, Alun Woodward, formerly of The Delgados, releases his first album since The Delgados’ ‘Universal Audio’ in 2004. Extraordinarily ambitious, ‘Lord Cut-Glass’ is written, arranged and in large part performed by Woodward, recalling the orchestral grandeur of his former band whilst forging a style of acerbic, sardonic songwriting all of his own. 'Lord Cut-Glass' features galloping percussion, waltzes, marches and promenades of male and female harmony: delicate and serene creations punctuated by casual profanity and shot through with brazenly hilarious words-to-the-wise.
