The shopping malls have closed down, the dressing rooms are filled
with ghosts, and the carousel is covered in cobwebs. Nobody Lives Here
Anymore, the latest and greatest from Max Clarke as Cut Worms, is the
haunted reverie of an American landscape in-and-out of Clarke’s mind.
Recorded between May and November 2019 in Memphis, Tennessee,
the album is a snow globe of the mid-twentieth-century’s popular music
filled with chiming guitars, honkey tonk pianos, and Telstar organs.
A constant creator - be it his Cut Worms alter-ego or his day-job
illustration work (designing brand logos and beer labels with madhouse
technicolor pictures) - writing and making records has always been
Max’s driving force. So after an extensive eighteen-months of touring
in support of 2017’s Alien Sunset and 2018’s Hollow Ground, he set
about sifting through the fragment pieces and sketches of tunes he’d
accumulated, along with a jet-stream of new compositions, mining his
life-long devotion to the lost American songbook for inspiration. By the
time he flew to Memphis to work with producer Matt Ross-Spang at
Sam Phillips Studio, he’d stockpiled more than thirty new songs.
A loss of innocence lingers through this 80-minute opus as Clarke
attempts to harbor love and meaning inside a world that sold itself
out. He explores the wistfulness of the past in search of answers for
tomorrow. And while his grand anthems overflow with timeless pop
charm, his ability to dig deeper than lollipops and holding hands sets
his work apart from the days of 45s and Top of the Pops.
