We are thrilled to announce that Alabaster dePlume’s debut solo release, “I Don’t Know”, is now available to buy from all the usual digital retailers. Not only that, he has also written a book of poems, “I Hate Spoo”, which can be purchased from the Alabaster dePlume online shop.
Alabaster also performed the song for Manchester Scenewipe.
A few words about the release:
During a spell of complete seclusion in a remote cabin in Dartmoor, Alabaster dePlume took an opportunity to write a short book of poems, and this song. He tells us it is terrifyingly easy to spend time without humanity, and that gathering firewood does wonders for wistful pentatonic melodies. On the porch, in the moonlit-dark, by a chair reserved for a far-distant friend, with occasional fauna passing by in the stillness, the singer personified something of a ludicrous and pretentious stereotype, whilst creating an original and genuinely sincere piece of work. The song addresses a number of characters, known all the more clearly, at the time, for their absence. It was put to tape by the inimitable Paddy Steer, of Homelife, who also plays double bass on the recording.
Alabaster dePlume is currently on a UK tour with The Miserable Rich and his full album will be released on Debt Records in the new year.
