Devil & Daughter (+ bonus track) (LP) | DELETED

“DEVIL AND DAUGHTER” is the debut album from Melbourne-based music artiste STU THOMAS (known the world over for his bass work with Kim Salmon & the Surrealists, Kim Salmon & The Business, The Scientists, Dave Graney & Clare Moore Featuring The Lurid Yellow Mist, The Brass Bed, Luxedo and more…).

Under the influence of writers, poets and revolutionaries, Stu T offers a rich musical journey through a darkly compelling world that’s bursting at the seams with an unholy grace.

A world of menacing glances, seedy bars, red wine and heavy breathing over a dodgy phone line. Think of the soundtrack to a 50’s film noir outing, with Stu T as detective, inhabiting scenes full of intrigue, cigarette smoke, the wife of another man and heavy consequences, all played out in saturated black and white.

Deep-well baritone vocals and warm, nocturnal undercurrents recall Serge Gainsbourg and Johnny Cash, alongside twisted Lee and Nancy duets for a new generation.

Recorded in Stu’s Melbourne home, Audrey Studios (Melbourne) and Mez Studios (Berlin), all songs were penned by Stu T except for the chilling re-working of “Folsom Prison Blues”. Guest appearances include: Clare Moore (Moodists), Anna Burley (Killjoys) and Mike Noga (The Drones).

“Devil & Daughter” is destined to remain a Sunday-morning-coming-down favourite.

The Bang! Records European release of this album will be available as a CD Digipack and a gatefold Vinyl LP. It features an exclusive bonus track “O Enemy”, recorded in Berlin, not available on its previous Australian release.
