Badly Drawn Boy

Badly Drawn Boy

简介:今年,一本英国畅销小说成就了一部英国最受好评的电影,而随着电影的成功,这部电影的原声唱片也成了最受欢迎的唱片。整部电影中的音乐就是出自这个来自英国曼彻斯特的,被称为英国“新民谣运动开创者”的,有着古怪名字的歌手Badly Drawn Boy(涂鸦男孩)之手。他的音乐含蓄、优雅,慵懒、风趣,不失人情味儿。虽然他可能还没有休??格兰特那么有名,但乐迷们却从未怀疑过这位乐坛新宠的才华。 Belying his status as a narcoleptic slacker icon, Badly Drawn Boy proved himself a tireless pop songwriter, with arrangements that reflect a great deal of creativity. Born Damon Gough, he began recording after meeting the like-minded Andy Votel at a Manchester nightclub. The pair formed the Twisted Nerve label, and Gough debuted as Badly Drawn Boy with an EP and several singles. The recordings dovetailed nicely with the experimentalist pop fringe of artists like Scott 4 and the Beta Band, and the attendant media hype allowed him to guest alongside Thom Yorke, Richard Ashcroft, and Mike D on 1997s celebrity-filled UNKLE LP Psyence Fiction. His 1999 single Once Around the Block grazed the British charts, while XL Recordings signed the pop auteur and released his debut album, The Hour of Bewilderbeast, in 2000. Just before its American release, the album earned another round of critical praise with Britains vaunted Mercury Prize for Best Album. December 2000 brought the birth of his daughter. Author Nick Hornby was won over by his music and asked the singer to score the film being made of his book About a Boy. After that project, he moved away from music for a few months to work on new material. After recording during most of 2002, he emerged that fall with Have You Fed the Fish? Two years later, Gough resurfaced with the simpler One Plus One Is One. Born in the U.K., a poppier collection of songs inspired by his childhood and (as the title suggests) Bruce Springsteens Born in the U.S.A., arrived in fall 2006.
