The most honourable Mr. Alun T. Woodward returns to the musical battlefield, shrouded within the august pseudonym of Lord Cut Glass. It's been over four years since The Delgados were cast asunder and since then Alun's time has been spent manning the ramparts of Chemikal Underground and nurturing his debut solo project. Teasing cameos have appeared on a couple of albums thus far: his mighty contribution to our Ballads Of The Book album (utilising the words of Alasdair Gray) and a track on David Shrigley's 'Worried Noodles' album.
For fans of The Delgados, the arrival of Lord Cut Glass will be cause for celebration: Emma Pollock's return to the fray was relatively swift and with no little fanfare while the gestation of Alun's project has been longer with the man writing, playing and scoring much of the album single-handedly. It's about time we had some new material from the man who wrote 'No Danger' and 'American Trilogy' and we're delighted to be releasing it on Chemikal (as long as he doesn't go gallivanting off around the world too much when there's label work to be done).
