Listen to Gavin Friday on VPRO’s De Avonden, talking about the Virgin Prunes, Each Man Kills the Thing He Loves, and ‘catholic’.
“He returns now with new album ‘catholic’, released today Good Friday. Ken Thomas‘ wonderfully lush and ambient production provides Friday’s lyrics, delivered in his trademark sleazy growl, with a rich cinematic soundscape. Loss and death are the central themes, but are examined from a vantage point, where the fog of grief has lifted and a new sunrise peaks it’s head above the horizon. It is an album that rewards repeated listens, slowly revealing its warm and intimate charms.”
