Nocturne

Bildergebnis für mark lanegan

A few days ago the ticket for Mark Lanegan's concert in Stuttgart arrived. My area is sadly a desert for good live music and can't be compared to Cologne or Hamburg. All the great (new) bands mostly don't stop here. As far as I know one of the reasons is that the government requests a lot of taxes for concerts. Anyway I am glad that Mark Lanegan will appear in four weeks because his latest record Gargoyle is one of his best. I know him since his early days with Screaming Trees and later with Queens Of The Stone Age and liked his way of singing. His baritone is unbelievable and expressive. I think only Lee Hazlewood and Leonard Cohen are more punchy. The more I listen to Gargoyle the more I think that this is one of the best records this year - so far.

Agreed Walter, 'Gargoyle' is a very fine piece of work. Enjoy the concert.

I agree it is a very very good album

Yep, an excellent record, and this track is particularly good.

I've got a ticket for his show in London and I'm very much looking forward to it. I don't normally like such well produced rock music, or such melodramatic lyrics. But he just makes it all work.

I still can't quite get with the notion that he would work alongside Isobel Campbell, who many regard as the queen of indie-twee thanks to her time in early Belle & Sebastian. But for the most part, their collaborations did work.

Enjoy the gig Walter.
