News – Edgar Jones – 25 Years Of Solo Adventures

Vues : 39

Edgar Jones est né à Liverpool. Il s’est fait connaître en 1992, avec The Stairs , un groupe dont il était le chanteur et le bassiste. Son premier album Mexican R ‘n’ B (1992) est un disque dans lequel, il revisitait le garage rock, le RnB anglais et le psychédélisme des 60’s.

Le britannique, qui a joué de la basse pour Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, St. Etienne et The La’s, voit aujourd’hui sa carrière compilée.

Une rétrospective baptisée Edgar Jones : The Way It Is – 25 Years Of Solo Adventures sort sur le label Cherry Red Records. Elle nous replonge dans les différents projets menés par Edgar Jones après la séparation de The Stairs en 1994.

Disponible en 3 CD, la compilation permet ainsi de redécouvrir des titres issus de ses albums solos mais aussi des raretés de ses groupes, The Isrites et The Big Kids. Les Big Kids comprenaient le batteur Sean Payne et le bassiste Russ Pritchard, qui ont ensuite formé les Zutons, et le guitariste Howie Payne, qui a fondé The Stands.

Son projet, The Edgar Jones Free Peace Thing a été sélectionné par Noel Gallagher pour soutenir Oasis lors de la tournée européenne en 2009.

Un livret avec des annotations d’Edgar Jones et de Lois Wilson journaliste à Mojo complète le coffret

Edgar Jones: The Way It Is – 25 Years Of Solo Adventures sera disponible le 22 janvier 2021.
