chris connelly The Episodes (CD, £5.10)label: Durtro Jnana
A native Scotsman, former member of Ministry and The Revolting Cocks and founding member of Fini Tribe, Connelly has collaborated with Cabaret Voltaire, Killing Joke, Robert Fripp and Jah Wobble, among many others. After fronting some of the era’s most popular and influential Industrial acts, he embarked on a very unique solo career in the early ‘90s. His music, drawing on orch-pop, glam and classic singer-songwriter influences, has been compared to the likes of David Bowie, Scott Walker, and Robert Wyatt. The Episodes, Connelly's eighth full-length solo work, was produced by Joan of Arc’s Tim Kinsella and Town & Country’s Ben Vida. The album is timeless and unique with radical arrangements and a crack band culled from Califone, Joan of Arc, Town & Country, US Maple and other Chicago jazz and improv luminaries.
