1 - ASTOR, PETE - ONE FOR THE GHOST - (CD) 
TAPETE


This is a record born through time; seasoned and erudite Indie auteur, ex leader of Creation Records favourites The Loft and The Weather Prophets, Pete Astor brings together strands and tributaries in his work over the years, mining timeless guitar pop to frame wry lyrical insights and melodic hooks, making music for today, with a true line from the past and an eye to the future. Having released Spilt Milk (Fortuna Pop!) in 2016 to an overwhelmingly positive response, Astor continues the musical spirit of that album with James Hoare (Ultimate Painting, Proper Ornaments, Veronica Falls) remaining a mainstay on guitar. He is now joined by The Wave Pictures rhythm section of Franic Rozycki on bass and Jonny Helm on drums; Pam Berry of Withered Hand and Black Tambourine contributes vocals. One for the Ghosts rainy day psychedelia maintains Astors engagement with relevant and contemporary worlds; from the mordant wit of the title track (Its the wallpaper or me you know/one of us has got to go/ said Oscar Wilde/ and then he died), to the London-based outsider ache of Walker (Walking the town, joining the future to the past/ the line from Arnold Circus all the way to Marble Arch), via the ageless love song of Water Tower and its paean to rural modernism (Meet my by the water tower/ its my favourite concrete flower).Bruised but very much alive, Astor and One for the Ghost face the future with a wry smile and hungry heart.

3 - ASTOR, PETE - PARADISE - (CD) 
TAPETE


Paradise became for many the album in which Astor, along with The Holy Road, most perfectly expressed his indubitable facility as a singer and songwriter. All his enduring musical references - from classic British guitar pop to New-York punk via the blues and even jazz - seem to blend into a fully-formed vision, one which envisions a kind of mythic America whilst always cleaving to European, and specifically British, roots. Twenty-seven years later, with Tapetes re-release, Paradise is a vital addition to a body of work which sounds as good now as it did then.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Almost Falling In Love 02. She Took The T.v. 03. Love, Full-on 04. Secret Life 05. Guy Fawkes' Night 06. Donnelly 07. The Hotel At The Edge 08. Of The World 09. Sideways And The 10. Golden Egg 11. Lost Soul 12. Paradise

5 - ASTOR, PETE - TIME ON EARTH - (LP) 
TAPETE


Time on Earth has songs which were written in direct response to loss and bereavement (Undertaker, Fine and Dandy); songs striving for different kinds of belief (New Religion, Time on Earth, Miracle on the High Street); stories from either end of the cycles of life (Sixth Form Rock Boys, English Weather). And a few still searching for fulfilment of the heart. (Stay Lonely, Grey Garden, Soft Switch).I was lucky enough to be able to make the music with the help of multi-instrumentalist Ian Button (Wreckless Eric, Death in Vegas, Papernut Cambridge) on the drums, bass maestro Andy Lewis (Spearmint, Paul Weller, and DJ at Londons legendary Blow Up Club and Soho Radio), long time guitarist Neil Scott (Everything But the Girl, Denim) and last but by no means least, Sean Read (Dexys, Edwyn Collins, Rockingbirds) who recorded and produced the album at his Famous Times Studios. As you would expect, I'm convinced its the best record I've made. Pete Astor
