***New Joolz Album "Crow" Announced***
Our Attack Attack Records label is proud to release “Crow”, a unique collaboration between poet Joolz Denby and composer Henning Nugel.
Joolz Denby needs no introduction to the New Model Army community. She has been a true underground renaissance artist since the late 1970s. As a poet, she was one of the principle figures to emerge from the post-punk generation, publishing seven collections of work and giving readings all over the World in countless different settings. As a novelist, she has published six volumes, including “Stone Baby” for which she received the New Crime-writer of the Year award in 2000 and “Billie Morgan”, which was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Literature in 2006. As a working artist, Joolz has designed all the record covers and visuals for New Model Army for 36 years (as well as being a guiding hand throughout our long career). Her paintings have been shown in many galleries while her unique tattoos have adorned clients from around the globe who come to her Bradford studio.
Crow will be her seventh studio album, with past collaborators including Jah Wobble, members of New Model Army, Mik Davis and many others.
Henning Nugel is the man responsible for two of the glorious string arrangements on our new album – on the title track ‘Winter’ and ‘Drifts’. After years of playing keyboards and guitars in several bands, he joined forces with his brother Ingo and founded Nugel Bros. Music. Focusing on music composition and sound design for games, their portfolio soon included clients as EA Games, Funatics and Blue Byte. Henning is also a member of the Dynamedion team of composers and has written music for many of their prestigious game projects and some of their TV scores. Henning can at times be seen playing fiddle and whistles together with acoustic folk band An-Spiorad and now works from his studio on the outskirts of Potsdam near Berlin.
The official release date is October 7th but we are now selling advance copies in the NMA Shop HERE
