SPIRIT OF TALK TALK – CD :
The double tribute album celebrating the visionary band Talk Talk is out now on Fierce Panda. All proceeds from the release will be going to ‘The Rare Bird Club’ charity. Alan Wilder is the musical & production supervisor for the project which features 30 artists, including: Recoil, White Lies, King Creosote, Jason Lytle (Grandaddy), Zero 7, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), Joan As Police Woman, Sean Carey (Bon Iver), Lights, Goldheart Assembly, Thomas White (Electric Soft Parade), Fyfe Dangerfield (Guillemots), Thomas Feiner, The Black Ships, Turin Brakes, as well as Ian Curnow, David Rhodes, Gaynor Sadler and Martin Ditcham, all of whom worked with Talk Talk.
The CD package has been designed by Talk Talk’s graphic artist, James Marsh, using his cover created in 1983 for a prospective album ‘Chameleon Hour’ which was never released.
Says Alan : “I think we have ended up with a hugely impressive collection of heartfelt covers, submitted with genuine affection and respect for the Talk Talk legacy. For me this is a fitting tribute to a massively underrated group, made with few compromises over quality and commerciality. It is made out of love. All in all, given the parameters of any collection of more than 30 artists, I can safely say ‘Spirit Of Talk Talk’ is the best tribute album to any artist that I have ever heard and I am proud to have been a part of it.“
Chris Roberts, one of the UK’s leading music journalists, traces Talk Talk’s history and evolution, reflecting on their unique journey from synth-pop to near-silence.
The book features stunning photographs by Richard Haughton, Sheila Rock, and many other leading rock photographers from ’81 – ‘91. Many of these shots have never been made public before and include vivid live images from the superb Montreux festival gig.
The book also features 100 written contributions from bands, label owners, DJs and creatives, all of whom share their appreciation and influences, inspired by the music and art of Talk Talk.
Contributors include : Guy Garvey (Elbow), Sir Peter Blake, Alan Wilder (Depeche Mode/Recoil), Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), James Lavelle (UNKLE), Jason Lytle (Grandaddy), Nick McCabe (The Verve/The Black Ships), Richard Wright (Pink Floyd), Mark Radcliffe, Tom Fleming (Wild Beasts), Matt Johnson (The The), Jimi Goodwin (Doves), Sean Carey (Bon Iver), Paul Hartnoll (Orbital), Karl Hyde (Underworld), Charles Cave (White Lies), Joan Wasser (Joan As Police Woman), Kenny Anderson (King Creosote), Gideon Coe & Olly Knights (Turin Brakes).
