Attack Of The Grey Lantern - Live At The Ritz
THE EX-MANSUN FRONTMAN'S RESURGENT SUCCESS NOW INCLUDES A LIVE RECORDING OF THE ICONIC #1 ALBUM.
ALBUM EXCLUSIVE TO VINYL
"The return to duty of a much loved British musician He sounds at the top of his game." - Prog Magazine
Mansun's debut, the iconic 90s #1 album 'Attack Of The Grey Lantern', is a much-loved and experimental piece of music at the heart of fervent cult following for the British group. Their dedicated fanbase started a petition that called for frontman Paul Draper to release his debut solo album 'Spooky Action' in 2017 and cast thousands of votes in an online poll to choose AOTGL as the album for Draper to play in full on tour in February / March 2018.
Paul Draper's 14-date Spring '18 tour followed 'Spooky Action' entering at #19 in the UK album charts, a US tour with label mate Steven Wilson, and helped to celebrate the 21st anniversary of one of the most favoured British albums from the late Britpop era 'Attack of the Grey Lantern'. The album has also since been remastered and released in deluxe format by Kscope, re-entering the UK album charts at #28 in June 2018. This rapid success for the ex-Mansun songwriter has seen him perform the main stage at the UK's esteemed Festival No. 6 and Kscope's 10th anniversary event at the Union Chapel in London alongside Anathema, Gleb Kolyadin and Nosound.
This 'Live at the Ritz' album captures Draper's energetic stage presence, his fantastic band and classic Mansun tracks such as "Wide Open Space", "Taxloss" and "Disgusting", performed to a rapturous crowd in Manchester. The reaction to Paul Draper's latest output, plus consistent support from BBC 6 Music's Steve Lamacq, reveals how relevant Mansun's music is to a growing crowd of followers. This exclusive vinyl-only release of 'Attack of the Grey Lantern Live at the Ritz' is presented as a 2LP in a wide spine sleeve and comes with an mp3 download of the album.
