|Genre||Progressive / Neoprog / RIO|
|Omschrijving||Produced by no-man, Flowers At The Scene is a
vibrant collection of eleven strikingly diverse
Against a backdrop of propulsive Art Rock,
heartbreaking ballads and more, Tim Bowness
distinctively delivers cinematic storytelling and
disarmingly direct confessional lyrics on his
strongest solo album to date.
Representing the duo of Tim Bowness and Steven
Wilson’s first joint production in over a decade,
the album features stunning performances from an
extraordinary cast of players including Peter
Hammill (Van Der Graaf Generator), Andy Partridge
(XTC), Kevin Godley (10cc), Colin Edwin (Porcupine
Tree), Jim Matheos (Fates Warning/OSI), David
Longdon (Big Big Train), co-producer Brian Hulse
(Plenty), Australian trumpeter Ian Dixon, and
drummers Tom Atherton and Dylan Howe. The Curator,
David K Jones, violinist Fran Broady and Charles
Grimsdale also guest.
Mixed by Steven Wilson and mastered by Steve Kitch
(The Pineapple Thief), the album’s poignant artwork
is by Jarrod Gosling.
“Lost In The Ghost Light – which was always
intended as a one-off – felt like a perfect
conclusion to a particular way of writing and
working. In the wake of that, Flowers At The Scene
very much feels like a press reset.
It was an exciting project to put together and it
was great working closely with old sparring
partners, Brian Hulse and Steven Wilson. Steven was
initially brought in to mix the album, but very
quickly he was doing far more and developing
production ideas alongside Brian and I. Listening
to pieces such as Not Married Anymore, Borderline
and The War On Me, we both felt that the project
had more than a hint of the spirit of no-man and it
became obvious that this was a no-man co-production
rather than a Bowness/Wilson one.
Elsewhere, the likes of Fates Warning’s Jim
Matheos, Colin Edwin, Dylan Howe and Tom Atherton
delivered some incredible performances and it was a
delight to get Peter Hammill, Kevin Godley, Andy
Partridge and David Longdon involved.
Peter and Kevin were two of my favourite singers
growing up and I’ve been a long-term fan of XTC, so
it was genuinely a thrill to hear their excellent
