The Real Tuesday Weld – ‘The Last Werewolf’ out now!


The Real Tuesday Weld album The Last Werewolf takes Glen Duncan’s novel as the backdrop for a widescreen emotional cabaret tailor-made for the iTunes generation.
The album is both a high concept single piece and a diverse playlist for the eclectic of ear and heart, all in the band’s own genre ‘Antique Beat’.  The book’s themes of violence, friendship, transformation, love and betrayal are recast as a suite of songs bound together in a soundtrack by voices and readings from the text.

As ever with an album by The Real Tuesday Weld, individual tracks cover a spectrum of styles from thirties ballads and torch songs through gypsy jazz and electro-swing to minimalist electronica.  A range of influences including Gainsbourg, Chopin, Django Reinhard, Cole Porter, Springsteen, Barry Adamson and Tom Waits hover ghostlike over the story as it develops.
