1. Product Details

Wakefield the first single taken from the new album My Ass has a jazzy flowing bass driving a day in the life of Brinks on tour: a sense of togetherness a touch of sax and the knowledge that love will act as a shield against all evil. Stanley Brinks is joined by The Wave Pictures for their new record My Ass the follow up to last years Gin and their fourth album together. After Gin Brinks wasted no time in taking The Wave Pictures straight back to the studio bright and early the morning after the final show of their tour to ensure they lost none of the fire still burning in their hearts from the final nights drinks. Three playful days and twelve loose jazzy tracks later with Brinks making salubrious use of his new penny-whistle and the assembled studio choir of friends hanging out embraced into the recordings he had his camel My Ass. Stanley Brinks was born in Paris France in 1973. He studied a bit of biology and worked as a nurse for a while. Half Swedish half Moroccan strongly inclined to travel the world he soon began spending most of his life on the road and developed a strong relationship with New York. By the late 90s hed become a full time singer-songwriter - Andr Herman Dune - as part of three piece indie-rock band Herman Dune. Several albums and Peel sessions later and after a decade of touring Europe mostly with American songwriters such as Jeffrey Lewis Calvin Johnson and early Arcade Fire he settled in Berlin. The early carnival music of Trinidad became a passion and in the early 21st century he became the unquestioned master of European calypso changing his name to Stanley Brinks. Under this moniker he has recorded more than 100 albums collaborated with the New York Antifolk scene on several occasions recorded and toured with traditional Norwegian musicians and played a lot with The Wave Pictures. The Wave Pictures are David Tattersall Franic Rozycki and Jonny Huddersfield Helm. Formed in 1998 when Franic and David lived in a village called Wymeswold the band played with several drummers until Jonny became a permanent member in 2003 replacing Hugh J Noble. In the beginning the band learned to play together by covering Jonathan Richman songs but soon David was writing lots of original material. They have since released six studio albums to critical acclaim and played numerous sessions on BBC 6 Music Radio 1 and Xfm. Interest generated from these recordings has enabled The Wave Pictures to play shows all over the world with artists including Jeffrey Lewis Darren Hayman Stanley Brinks Freschard and Herman Dune.
