£17.99 – 180 g LP
• Mark Lanegan first rose to fame with his band The Screaming Trees in the 1990s. Like other noted artists Lanegan has carved out a strong identity of his own as a vocalist and songwriter informed by the blues but willing to take his darkly poetic sensibility wherever his muse was pointing him, from hard rock to electronica.
• At the time, The Screaming Trees had recently disbanded and Lanegan was in the early years of his solo offerings (at this point he had released a mere five solo albums). The songs on ‘Houston (Publishing Demos 2002)’, were written, recorded then shelved until now – the release of this 12-song collection of previously unreleased demos via Ipecac.
• Justice Records’ Randall Jamail produced the album. Artwork by The Mekons’ Jon Langford. • Heavyweight 180g LP packaged in a gatefold jacket.
