Gaz Coombes - World's Strongest Man LPLabel: Caroline Records
Regular price $24.98
Vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release, the third solo album from the British singer/songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist of the English alternative rock band Supergrass. Three years on from his last solo record Matador, World's Strongest Man was inspired by Grayson Perry's Descent of Man, Frank Ocean's Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked masculinity, Neu! And hip hop. A remarkable collection of 11 deeply personal songs each set to expansive, addictive melodies. From the deep soul purge of the title track to the coruscating Fripp-goes-motorik sprint of "Deep Pockets" via the gorgeous cyclonic ballad "Slow Motion Life" and the raw-as-hell stream of consciousness panic attack of "Vanishing Act", World's Strongest Man is a bold, ambitious, free-thinking, future-facing rock 'n' roll record.
