TELL US IN A COMMENT BELOW WHY YOU SHOULD WIN 2 TICKETS TO TONIGHT'S SHOW. WINNER WILL BE NOTIFIED THROUGH EMAIL BY 6PM THIS EVENING.
Soon after recording the most successful Depeche Mode album to date - ‘Violator’ - he returned to the Recoil project for his next album,‘Bloodline, in 1991. Guest vocalists were recruited, helping to produce an album that demonstrated his ability to concoct slow-burning soundscapes drenched in drowsy paranoia.
Long story short, Recoil put out two more albums throughout the years, gaining accolades worldwide and gleaning from a diverse catalog of guests. Alan is on a special tour right now with his newest album, Selected, which is a compilation of his favorite Recoil songs, arranged to provide a complete listening experience. The tour ncludes Europe, South America, and selected parts of the U.S. and he is with us tonight, first at the SW 9th Ave Jackpot Records for a special in-store meet & greet event from 5-6PM. Then head to the Aladdin to see the show.
Here's one of our favorites, from the 2000 album Liquid, featuring the 1940's Gospel crooners The Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet.
Warning: This video is full of creepy things. Enjoy.
