More details on the upcoming Talk Talk tribute album

May 30, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

In September 2012, the Fierce Panda label will be releasing “Spirit Of Talk Talk”, a double album which features 30 contemporary acts from around the globe re-inventing, re-interpreting Talk Talk’s greatest moments precisely 30 years since “Talk Talk” made its mark on the mainstream. More details have now bleached out and it seems that the tribute release will be a real who-is-who album with lots of cult ‘Talk Talk’ names involved.

Conceived and co-ordinated by Toby Benjamin and massaged into shape by musical director Alan Wilder, this twin CD features artwork by original Talk Talk artwork designer James Marsh (using the cover he created in 1983 for a prospective album “Chameleon Hour” which was never released) and sees profits going to The Rare Bird Club charity. Note that the album has been mastered by Denis Blackham who was also responsible for mastering many of Talk Talk’s albums.

The album accompanies the “Spirit Of Talk Talk” book, to be published in September as well by the Essential imprint. Pre-ordering will begin in the next few days from Fierce Panda’s on-line store at www.fiercepanda.co.uk .

The album features 30 artists, including: Alan Wilder (Recoil), White Lies, King Creosote, Jason Lytle (Grandaddy), Zero 7, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), Joan As Police Woman, Sean Carey (Bon Iver), Lights, Goldheart Assembly, Thomas White (Electric Soft Parade), Fyfe Dangerfield (Guillemots), Thomas Feiner, The Black Ships, Turin Brakes, as well as Ian Curnow, David Rhodes, Gaynor Sadler and Martin Ditcham, all of whom worked with Talk Talk.
