The Disinterment of Dan Stuart
In a somewhat messy process that began with the 4 Songs EP last year, quasi-legendary, esteemed and vilified singer-songwriter Dan Stuart announces the release of his first solo record this century: The Deliverance of Marlowe Billings out on Cadiz Records, London, late August 2012.
Mr. Stuart is best known for being the leader of 80's groundbreakers Green on Red featuring Chuck Prophet, and half of the duo Danny & Dusty with Steve Wynn. His artistic efforts have been praised (and mocked) in the pages of the LA/NY/London Times as well as Rolling Stone, NME and countless others. His songs have been performed by artists as varied as Manic Street Preachers, Richmond Fontaine, Jon Dee Graham and Vivian Girls: strange bedfellows for sure.
In a page from B.Traven's life, Mr. Stuart has been living under the name of Marlowe Billings in Southern Mexico. Rumors of an escape from a New York mental health facility have not been denied. What is certain, is that Mr. Stuart has been spotted playing gigs around the world, thoroughly surprising himself and others. Que un milagro!
