Songs About Love Dreams & Domestic Appliances
During the late 1980s and early 1990s, Len occasionally took time out to release further critically-acclaimed solo EPs when not busy touring or recording with Leeds-based bands The Ukrainians, The Wedding Present and the lesser-known Sinister Cleaners. Songs about Love, Dreams & Domestic Appliances is a collection of twenty inspired, observational and quirky tracks from this period.
Len's songs are populated with sad personalities - products of a cruel world: an untidy research scientist called Zoe, a soon-to-be evicted Russian barber from Brixton called Yuri, a crabby homeless man in Leeds, point-scoring TV politicians and characters obsessed by food, space travel, texting and the end of the world.
The songs are quintessentially English observations: a far cry from Len's folk-rooted Ukrainian-language-singing alter ego as founder member of internationally acclaimed Cossack folk-punk group THE UKRAINIANS.
Songs about Love, Dreams & Domestic Appliances features guest appearances from members of the original, classic line-up of THE WEDDING PRESENT as well as members of THE UKRAINIANS.
