Kscope Continues Its Sweet Billy Pilgrim Reissue Campaign with a Remastered Edition of 2009's Mercury Award-Nominated Twice Born Men!
2015 saw the UK's unsung heroes of experimental art rock, London based Sweet Billy Pilgrim, join the Kscope roster and release their label debut and fourth album Motorcade Amnesiacs to critical media acclaim. Following on from the release of Motorcade Amnesiacs, Kscope began the reissue campaign of the band's earlier albums beginning with their 2005 debut We Just Did What Happened And No One Came. September 2016 sees the release of the band's 2009 Mercury Prize Nominated album Twice Born Men. The 2016 version of Twice Born Men has been remastered by Sweet Billy Pilgrim's Tim Elsenburg and Francis Kimberley and comes pressed on limited edition 180g vinyl with brand new cover artwork.
The trio of Tim Elsenburg (singing, guitar, producer, mixing), Anthony Bishop (banjo, bass) and Alistair Hamer (sequencing, drums) caused quite a stir with their 2005 debut We Just Did What Happened And No One Came, navigating the delicate path between self-referential art rock and melodic folk rock. 2009 follow-up Twice Born Men, originally released on David Sylvian's Samadhi Sound label, was hailed by the Sunday Times and earned the band a vaunted Mercury Prize nomination. Twice Born Men is at heart a melodic beast complimented by the exquisite swooning shiver of Elsenburg's vocal, and ultimately a beautiful album, which will appeal to fans of alt country and art-pop alike.
