Pete Gow “Strip For Me” – Listen

The Case Hardin main man has a solo album coming up called ‘Here There’s No Sirens‘ (out in April on Clubhouse Records).  ‘Strip For Me‘ is the lead single, and in Pete Gow’s own words, it’s  a bit different from previous material.  He says that this release: “is an opportunity to take my writing out of its comfort zone.  There are large parts of this record that are uncharacteristically up close and very personal, and that was a considered choice. But… as the project started to take shape there came the inevitable second-guessing of those choices that led me to redress the balance with a bit of ‘depravity’ here, a bit of ‘unremitting darkness’ there… a slightly crude attempt to throw folks off the scent and a cynical one at trying to keep the base happy “.  ‘Strip For Me‘ certainly fits in with a sense of the dark and disturbing.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
