Finally back. After his full ABClub of October 2009. And later efforts in 2010, including with 'supergroup' Fistful Of Mercy (feat. Ben Harper and Dhani Harrison.)
Joseph Arthus is that American singer-songwriter and vendor of immensely fascinating and honest sounding songs. Just call them 'masterful songs'.
So now there's the new single All The Old Heroes: a 7'14" moment of beauty with a whole series of heroes in the clip. Do you recognize them all? From Lennon to Miles?
All The Old Heroes (that at the same time also strongly reminds one of that other epos: Celluloid Heroes by The Kinks) is also the forerunner of a double CD: The Ballad Of Boogie Christ. With a first CD out in June via iTunes and the full set on CD by the end of September (Real World label) and iTunes again.
A few intriguing titles: It's OK To Be Young/Gone, Famous Friends Along The Coast, Used To Know How To Walk On Water...
We pick up some pieces of the puzzle from De Standaard: 'In the ABClub, we felt like we were in Joseph Arthur's head for an hour and a half. A head full of melancholy thoughts and splendid songs... whereby he always kept to the right side of the border between sensitivity and monotony... Arthur is like the small masterpiece that nobody notices in the corner of the museum... After a wonderful show we returned home satisfied, but slightly despondent.'
