Tim Bowness/Peter Chilvers – Modern Ruins

By | News | No Comments

18 years after the duo’s debut California, Norfolk, Tim Bowness and Peter Chilvers return with the exquisite melancholy of Modern Ruins.

Mixed by the legendary Peter Hammill, the album alternates between fragile piano-led songs and atmospheric Electronica-infused pieces which take the duo’s music to new levels of accomplishment.

CD in rigid matt-finish Japanese-style card sleeve.

All copies come with a signed postcard.

All About Jazz reviews ‘Abandoned Dancehall Dreams’

By | News | No Comments

All About Jazz recently reviewed Tim Bowness’ forthcoming solo album ‘Abandoned Dancehall Dreams‘ (due out on 23rd June via InsideOut Music) and had this to say…

“If there’s never been any doubt about Bowness’ talents, Abandoned Dancehall Dreams is, nevertheless, a revelation. His vocal style has long since grown into an instantly recognizable one, but as a writer he’s never asserted himself as he has here. Lyrically he may still continue to explore the darker, more melancholic subjects with which he’s long been associated, but with Abandoned Dancehall Dreams Bowness has stepped up his compositional acumen, drawing on sources ranging from Peter Gabriel and Japan to Talk Talk and King Crimson, but the end result sounding like nobody but Tim Bowness. It appears that live appearances to perform this material will be limited to a small handful of dates—where, in collaboration with the rest of Henry Fool, he’ll also be performing music from that group’s small but strong discography, as well as some tunes from the No-Man repertoire—but if this album achieves the critical and popular acclaim it deserves—and the advance buzz certainly suggests it will—then it will also, hopefully, be an opportunity for Bowness, like Wilson, to step out from the shadow of a group and become the leader that, based on the destined-to-be-classic Abandoned Dancehall Dreams, he’s clearly ready—and meant—to be”
