PETE DOHERTY + THE PUTA MADRES - S/T
Vinyl LP pressing. Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres' eponymously titled debut album was recorded live to capture the essence and spirit of the Puta Madres at a family home overlooking a fishing village in Normandy, over four days in the summer of 2018 and mixed in Urchin Studios, London. Engineered by Dan Cox and produced by Jai Stanley, it's a devastatingly intimate portrait of love, loss, happiness, tragedy, addiction and the power of the human soul to transcend it's darker levels. All of the songs from the album were road tested over the previous 18 months across Europe. Songs include the reflective "All At Sea, the raw "Punk Buck Bonafide," the upbeat and playful "Shoreleave," the joyous hymn of liberation "Paradise Is Under Your Nose," "Someone Else To Be" Pete's re-imagining of the Velvet Underground's "Ride Into The Sun" and Oasis' "Don't Look Back In Anger" and "Who's Been Having You Over" with dialogue from the 1948 film adaption of Graham Greene's Brighton Rock.
