I just happened to notice that World Party is at the Royal Albert Hall tonight. So for all my spontaneous, last-minute type readers, I highly recommend this.
Karl Wallinger’s band are back for their first UK dates in 10 years to celebrate the release of Arkeology – a massive 5 CD collection of 70 never-before-heard tracks. Karl had a brain aneurysm several years ago and after a long road to recovery has started performing again.
From World Party website: “Formed in 1986, World Party carried the torch for intelligent pop and outstanding live musicianship, amassing 5 critically acclaimed albums including the Grammy nominated Goodbye Jumbo, which was named the first ever Q Magazine ‘Album of the Year’. Their hit singles include Ship of Fools and She’s the One, later recorded by Robbie Williams. Arkeology includes unreleased work spanning 25 years, with some songs completed as recently as 2011, as well as live sessions, concert recordings and covers.”
