The return of the mighty Hipsway.
Recorded in 3 × 3-day bursts over the winter/spring of 2018 the album was recorded old style with all the musicians crammed together in one room striving for the best unified take of each track and allowing a continuity of sound where, stylistically, the tunes may differ starkly.
Thematically the songs are about deception – be that by the self or on a grander fake news scale – hence the album title. Nostalgia plays its part in a let’s-learn-from-our-mistakes attitude. Musically, influences cover the art-pop of Bowie and Radiohead to the earthy funk of the Meters and Funkadelic and much more besides.
