THE WILDHEARTS frontman Ginger will release his new solo album, "Market Harbour", in late January/early February. The CD contains 21 songs/segues and has a running time of sixty minutes and twenty four seconds. With no break in the music throughout the album, and packed with a weird and wonderful array of samples and loops in addition to instrumentation, the record is a showcase for the diverse talent of Ginger.
From the classic Ginger-esque opener and first single "Casino Bay" (a mid tempo stormer awash with hooks) to country-and-western meets-"Hats Off To Roy Harper"-esque skiffle instrumental "The Ninns Of Mourning", from the Roger Waters-infused "House Of Moths" to the punked-up three-minute blast of "Overeasy", from the Burt Bacharach lilt of 67-second instrumental "Tenants" to the beautiful soaring instrumentation and melodies of "I Knew You (An Amensis)", from the do-wop pop of Couple Trouble" to the rolling toms of instrumental "Eye Of The Rotunda" and the slow-build epic album closer "Shatterproof" with its haunting refrain of "How Can You Kill Something / That Will Not Die," "Market Harbour" is a wildly ambitious album that only someone of Ginger's creative talents could pull off as successfully as he does.
