Across four decades Ben Watt has maintained a committed forward-looking course, from the ardent echo-drenched folk of his early solo work with Robert Wyatt, through seventeen years as musical mainspring and co-lyricist in the best-selling Everything But The Girl with Tracey Thorn - and ten at the helm of his smart electronic label Buzzin' Fly - to his recent moving non-fiction and mid-life solo albums, the award-winning 'Hendra' (2014) and 'Fever Dream' (2016).
New album 'Storm Damage' (out January 2020) is no exception. Sonically adventurous, lyrically detailed and engaged, the album - written and produced by Watt - is a personal journey through anxiety and change cut through with an insistent defiance.
Sonically the album forgoes the acclaimed twin-guitar approach of its two predecessors, and boldly shifts focus onto - in Watt's words - "a future-retro trio" of upright piano, double bass and hybrid acoustic-electronic drums, set against a half-lit backdrop of lone analogue synths, spiralling echo spins and impressionistic "found sounds" adapted from online public-domain recording archives.
"I wanted a timeless-meets-modern live jam - the directness of an adorned trio capturing the spirit; and the samples, synthetics and electronic boom capturing the psychological mood," he says. "Tight, but allowed to slip its moorings."
Expect songs, improvisation and stories from across his career as Watt performs with his current band.

US guitarist Dweezil Zappa will be returning to Europe this December with his 'Hot Rats Tour'.
Dweezil Zappa and his "rocking teenage combo" will be performing his father Frank Zappa's entire 'Hot Rats' album in sequence live on stage as part of his upcoming 2019 tour. Dweezil has long undertaken a mission to re-acquaint the world with the sights and sounds of his infamous father and the incredibly talented group of musicians revive Frank's music in a fresh context, whilst keeping true to Zappa Snr's unique and impeccable sonic heritage.
Zappa can't wait to be returning to the UK: "We have always enjoyed presenting Frank's music to audiences in the UK. This tour gives us the opportunity to perform 'Hot Rats' as well as other material from his huge body of work that is still as alive and relevant today as it was when it was composed."
'Hot Rats' album played a pivotal role in establishing Frank Zappa as a composer and guitarist and was also dedicated to the new-born Dweezil upon its release in 1969. The 50-year-old classic album will be surrounded by an assortment of other psychedelic, avant-garde odd metered toe-tappers well known to Zappa aficionados as well as being equally exciting for music fans new to his music.
Don't miss out on Dweezil Zappa's unique recreation of 'Hot Rats' and other 'Hot Stuff' this year!
