Paul Draper – Cult Leader Tactics (LP)
Former Mansun frontman, Paul Draper, returns with a collection of
his finest song writing since the bands’ imperial phase. ‘Cult Leader
Tactics’ is a self-help manual on how to become a complete cult
in the music industry & is his first solo album since 2017’s muchlauded ‘Spooky Action’.
‘Cult Leader Tactics’ offers a satirical analysis of the self-help manual
genre. A guide on how you can get to the top of your chosen
profession, or ahead in life & in affairs of the heart, by acting in a
Machiavellian manner, employing dirty tricks or ‘Cult Leader Tactics’
to achieve your life goals. After experiencing these types of human
behaviours & themes, the album arrives at the conclusion that the
only true answer in life is love.
Paul plays most of the instruments on the album, including lead
vocals, guitar & various Moogs & synthesisers. An album produced
with long-time collaborator & acclaimed producer Paul ‘P-Dub’
Walton (Massive Attack, The Cure, Bjork) at Loft Studios, it also
includes guest appearances from Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson
& Gam of the band ‘Sweat’, as well as featuring a 288-person C.L.T.
‘Cult Leader Tactics’ offers a selection of Paul’s most focused &
ambitious work so far, a brilliantly dark commentary on an industry
he is all too aware of.
