|Joseph Coward The World Famous Joseph Coward Limited Vinyl LP + CD Album
· Joseph Coward is set to release his eagerly awaited debut
album this autumn.
· ‘The World Famous Joseph Coward’, self produced in London
with Phillip Brillo, is released on CD, vinyl and download and features ten tracks, including a Clash Magazine Track Of The Day - ‘Sarah, Plain & Tall’ - and the singles ‘Idle Boy’, ‘Thin’ and ‘Lucky To Have Me’.
· An artist with the wistful-narcotised style and pugnaciousconfessional delivery of an earlier generation of British romantics, the unschooled, unbridled, uncompromising lyricism of Ian McCulloch, Morrissey and Billy Bragg courses through Joseph Coward’s songs.
· After leaving his Brentwood, Essex school at sixteen, Coward left home and scraped together an existence in London, where he published a fanzine and made himself a fixture in the music scene.
· “Atmospheric and melodic post-punk... sweeping melodrama... sweetly intimate... Serious in intent and sharp in execution” - Q
· “Startling honesty” - Wonderland Magazine
· “His take on atmospheric post punk casts chiming shadows
through an Echo & The Bunnymen shaped prism of multilayered
guitars and low-fi loops to impressive effect.” - Clashmusic.com
· “Romantic and timeless... compelling and brilliant” - Huh.
· The vinyl format includes a copy of the album on CD.
