Description

John Wesley Hardings first rock release in the UK since 2001. A fantastic collection of tuneful pop and Folk Rock backed by The Minus Five (basically REM) and other stellar collaborators. After placing his music career on hold while going to work as a best-selling author, cult singer-songwriter John Wesley Harding returns with Who Was Changed And Who Was Dead, his first new UK release in eight years. The album features a slew of JWHs long term collaborators: the backing band comprises old friends Peter Buck, Scott MacCaughey and Bill Reiflin of The Minus Five, not to mention their side project REM; Steve Berlin of Los Lobos; Kurt Bloch of The Young Fresh Fellows; long time singing partner Kelly Hogan; Mike Viola, of The Candy Butchers, who co-wrote three of the songs; and guitarist Earl Slick (David Bowie, John Lennon). During the last five years, the songwriter (picked as Bruce Springsteens first opening act in 20 years) has written two novels under his real name Wesley Stace, both published by Jonathan Cape: the international bestseller Misfortune, nominated for a slew of awards including The Guardian First Book Award and by George, a New York Public Library Book to Remember of 2007. But now its back to music business. Tracks; 1. My Favourite Angel / 2. Love or Nothing / 3. Oh! Pandora / 4. A Very Sorry Saint / 5. Sleepy People / 6. Top of the Bottom / 7. Daylight Ghosts / 8. The End / 9. Sick Organism / 10. Congratulations (on your Hallucinations) / 11. Someday Son / 12. Your Mind's Playing Tricks On You / 13. Wild Boy
