Here is Duncan Browne’s long awaited new album; Songs of Love & War.
In addition to his innovative solo albums, he loved interpreting, inhabiting and contributing to other peoplesâ€™ schemes – Richard Dentonâ€™s films, our own work in the theatre and television, the sustained fertile relationships with Nick Magnus, Colin Blunstone, Nic Potter, Terry & Mandy Oates and John Boughtwood at Eaton Music, Dave Mackay, Geoff Hannington, the BBC World Service and many more – all part of a creative life, cruelly curtailed in May 1993.
All of us seeking the unsentimental, cool commitment on which Duncan himself would have insisted, have worked to complete this collection, with his often hilariously ruthless instructions echoing through our collective senses, defining and re-defining the process at every stage.
His tireless self criticism, his passionate, uncompromising, inspiration support of hid colleagues, and his uniquely subjective musicality have inspired us all. His beautiful, humorous talent and unforgettable companionship in art and its fierce fires, have encompassed us all. Listen to this, then. Enjoy, celebrate and remember.
From all of us, a dedication of love to Duncan Browne.
