Following its original Summer 2011 release as a 500 copies limited edition vinyl release for Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace label, Michael Chapman’s “The Resurrection and Revenge of The Clayton Peacock” is scheduled for release on CD for the first time by blastfirstpetite. For those already aware of the Yorkshire born composer, singer, guitarist and self confessed maverick troubadour, Chapman’s Clayton Peacock recording may come as something of a surprise. The music here is unlike anything he has crafted before, casting aside his skills as a songwriter and focussing on improvisation for the first time. The LP was Wire magazine’s No. 5 Album of The Year, after it received a full page rave review by Edwin Pouncey.and later his own Invisible Jukebox. Feature. The Quietus are prepapring a large feature on M.C.’s history. BBC 4 TV will soon be airing a new edition of Songwriter’s Circle that features Michael and “Peacock” live performances with Dean McPhee are imminent.
