ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Day Full Of You, A Night Tired Of Me is the debut album by ex-Locust vocalist, Craig Bethell. The album displays a plaintive song-writing style that unashamedly croons its way through a set of eleven varied songs influenced as much by avant-pop baritones Scott Walker and David Sylvian as it is by a troubled and melancholic Chet Baker. Bethell’s vocals are late night deliveries, a haunting idiom of the post-modern torch song.

Mark Van Hoen (Locust, Mojave 3, Sing Sing) lends production duties and evokes an atmosphere of ‘low’-era Bowie, (as on the instrumental overture of ‘December’), employs a careful use of Rhodes piano & subtle strings (‘Bad Blood’), as well as vintage synthesizer, distant harp motifs and brushed drums (‘Finding The Light’ & ‘History Repeats Itself’).

London based songwriter/singer Craig Bethell has sporadically written, recorded and performed his songs since 1983. His working life has largely been devoted to magazine publishing. Through demand from different quarters (die-hard Locust fans, new fans via MySpace etc.), Craig was encouraged to revisit the best of hitherto unreleased material from past sessions with Van Hoen. These works were revised, rerecorded, remixed and revamped, along with some completely new material, to make up A Day Full Of You, A Night Tired Of Me, an album many years in the making.
