Boomkat Product Review:
Being massive fans (almost obsessives) of Stuart Staples' life-changing indie doom-rockers Tindersticks you could probably imagine how much we've been looking forward to this bumper double-disc collection of rare recordings for the BBC. You see the Tindersticks have always been one of those rare bands that never lost it, never stopped being anything other than devastating, one of those bands that you can count on for great songs and great live shows. Their seamless welding of indie-rock with gigantic orchestrations and soul was unlike almost anything we had heard before and had a rich emotional heart that would see them win fans the world over. Stuart Staples' voice became possibly the band's most recognisable asset, deep, velvety and solemn and when accompanied by the peerless arrangements of the expansive band the music was simply unforgettable. This twenty-five track compilation brings together the band's favourite BBC session work recorded for John Peel and Mark Radcliffe and comes with touching liner notes from keyboard player David Boulter which gives a rare insight into this often mysterious band. It's all stunning stuff as you can imagine with tracks spanning from 1993-1997, the era when the band recorded the first three (and for most listeners their finest) albums and includes some special extra tracks, most notably a version of Pavement's 'Here' which simply has to be heard to be believed. I don't doubt that many of you have led a life without experiencing the wonder that is Tindersticks so do yourself a favour and check this gorgeous collection out - they're a band truly out there on their own and will no doubt enrich your life in much the same way as they've enriched ours over the last 15 years. Highly Recommended.
