Press Release :
The Real Tuesday Weld, a.k.a. British singer-songwriter and audio provocateur Stephen Coates has charmed critics and audiences alike by wedding the suggestive hiss of vintage vinyl and ancient radio transmissions to the latest samples, loops and glitchy beats, creating a signature sound he calls "antique beat". His first two Six Degrees releases I, Lucifer and The Return of the Clerkenwell Kid have inspired critical raves from such outlets as W Magazine who describes his music as "oddball electronica-goes-Tin Pan Alley… a hit of aural Ecstasy with a champagne chaser.

Which brings us to his latest, and anxiously awaited, album for the Six Degrees label. London Book of the Dead may be a startlingly morose title, and it's true that the album's lyrical concerns drift dreamily between such weighty topics as death, religious faith, honesty, drugs, and disease. But even when the going gets dark and introspective, there's an element of whimsy that is never far from the surface.

With its stellar song craft and atmospheric production, The London Book of the Dead is the most original and accessible musical statement yet from one of modern music's most unique artists
