THIS IS THE END
This is The End
After two decades we are calling it time. I made this little film for friends to explains why.
It’s for all sorts of reasons: geographical, pharmacological, psychological, astrological. But mainly because we've loved The Real Tuesday Weld too dearly to leave it to chance or to just let it fizzle out like a spent firework.
But we don't believe in short goodbyes and we want to say farewell properly - with a kiss and a final flourish.
And we want you to come with us - the support and appreciation of friends and fans is really why we have kept doing all this time.
We have planned a series of Swan Song releases on limited edition vinyl, The first “BLOOD" is a set of 'ten songs for Noir movies' - ten tales of romantic revenge, heartbreak, dreams and urban psychodrama - with a nod (via a deranged cover version of Poker Face) to our swinging past and featuring some of our favourite collaborators: Oriana Curls, GG McEwen and Sephine Llo.
BLOOD is released on May 7th (and we have a super limited edition special bonus album 'Tape Dust Memories' on 'Bloodbag cassette' to go with early copies.)
Blood will be followed by DREAMS - a set of bucolic Indian summer songs and then BONE - a swinging selection to wave goodbye with a smile. And we hope to play some shows along the way so maybe we can meet in person again one of these days..
If you want to know even more about why it is time to go, check out the little video above - and be in touch - we always love to hear from friends.
PS You can pre-order BLOOD on vinyl right now with a discount for friends over the next week.
