Product Notes

2015 three CD release from the eccentric Scottish singer/songwriter. Momus spent much of 2014 preparing a two-headed cabaret at London's Cafe Oto, a tribute to his two favorite songwriters, Howard Devoto and David Bowie. Turpsycore, a voluptuous triple disc set named after the Greek goddess of dancing and delight, is a record of the covers plus a fresh Momus album recorded in Osaka in the winter of 2014. The new Momus songs were partly inspired by a visit to the V&A's Bowie exhibition in 2013: wandering off to an obscure upstairs room, Momus found himself in the museum's Music Hall and Variety Theatre collection. The character acts - clowns, female impersonators, pantomime dames, obscenity-spouting comedians - seemed even more Bowie-ish than the Bowie show itself. So Turpsycore pays tribute to eccentric characters like the "filthy hiker" Frank Randle, the handsome synthpop pioneer Jacno, Paul McCarthy's babyish painter alter ego, William Burroughs in Tangiers, the ghost of Lou Reed in Williamsburg, Tony Newley and Jobriath. Some zig-zaggy matrix connects the three discs, joining the dots across decades of fascinating culture, high and low.
