Bowness reveals Stupid solo album

Tim Bowness will release fourth solo album Stupid Things That Mean The World in July, he’s confirmed.

The follow-up to 2014’s Abandoned Dancehall Dreams includes guest appearances from Anna Phoebe, Peter Hammill, Pat Mastelotto, Phil Manzanera, David Rhodes, Rhys Marsh and Bruce Soord – who also mixed the work.

No-Man and Henry Fool member Bowness says: “The new album is a bolder and more dynamic extension of Abandoned Dancehall Dreams.

“It’s a logical step forward with some surprises, I hope. It’s been really exciting working with my live band on most of the pieces and getting some special contributions. Bruce’s mixing and guitar parts have taken the material to a higher level.”

A firm date will be revealed in due course. It’ll be available in various formats including double-CD media book with alternative mixes, demos and an unreleased No-Man demo from 1994.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
