Attics have always exerted an irresistible pull on David Js imagination. They can unveil luminous jewels that time and dust made seem lost. With Tracks from the Attic, the Bauhaus and Love and Rockets co-founder invites us to join him and climb up the ladder. A most fascinating journey ensues: were looking through boxes of tapes, getting reacquainted with an artist weve known for a long time, yet the intimate songs he recorded in solitary over three decades reveal new sides to him.

Even while busy with his two legendary groups, David J burst with songs; this is a thrilling selection of recordings he made between 1983 and 2004, some in the studio and most at home, with only the help of his Muse, a recorder and a lighted candle. Like all good attic finds, these songs were committed to tape and almost forgotten - it wasnt until a fan suggested hed offer his digitizing skills that David J thought about revisiting them again. All, except deep cut This Town, had never been previously heard. The fact that most of these tunes didnt end up being beloved classics (something that, once you hit play, your ears will hardly come to terms with) is but a sign of David Js ever busy creative state. Mostly composed on acoustic guitar, they will offer unexpected revelations to long-time fans, as they bring to light facets of his musical self that couldnt be fully expressed in a band setting. It is indeed fascinating to follow the evolution of David Js way with songs through the decades, from the observational lyrical montages of the early days to a later, confident embrace of the deeply personal. At the same time, Tracks from the Attic can also be seen as a striking introduction for newcomers - it does feel like meeting one of the great British singer-songwriters for the first time. Oh No! Not Another Songwriter!, one of the box sets highlights cheekily cries out. Well, this box set interjects, this is not just any songwriter. Pressed on red vinyl for RSD Black Friday.
