RELEASE DATE - 20th March 2020
RUSTIN MAN aka PAUL WEBB will release a new album, 'CLOCKDUST' - his second in two years.
Having waited 17 years for 'Drift Code', some may be surprised at 'Clockdust's' swift arrival, but the album's roots can be found in the same extended sessions. "Early on I realised I had two albums worth of
material," Webb explains. "The first tunes I wrote were electric guitar based, with long arrangements that built up in layers to something sonically quite dense. These became the bulk of 'Drift Code'. As a reaction, I wrote a batch of songs that were tighter in their structure but had more feeling of space. These make up the bulk of 'Clockdust'."
'Clockdust' draws upon an armoury of instruments, some, like the euphonium, unfamiliar in such contexts, and plenty - the kokoriko, the okónkolo - with even more unfamiliar names. Each track, too, indicates
Webb's fondness for the path less travelled, its twists and turns at first jarring but soon intuitive. That they're embellished by a voice which has seemingly endured many lifetimes emphasises their mysterious
nature. That its recording was soundtracked by Jacques Brel, Jet Harris and Kurt Weill no doubt contributed too. That many songs are inspired by old movies enhances their ageless atmosphere yet further.
