Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies
Honesty Box (Tantobie Records)
Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies' first new studio release since the critically acclaimed "Parish Notices" recording was released in 1998, "Honesty Box" contains 12 new songs featuring Jez with Bad Pennies: Judy Dinning, Simon Haworth and Kate Bramley as well as special guests: Sam Pirt, Andy May & Jeff Armstrong. Recorded at Trinity Heights Studio in the UK by Fred Purser ("Parish Notices, ") this recording demonstrates the band's versatility and broad talent with a number of different styles. All of the songs are Jez Lowe originals with Track 1, Skin Too Thin, a co-wrrite with former Bad Penny, Bev Sanders. This CD proves again that Jez Lowe is one of England's finest writers, an artist with the rare talent to write songs about specific Northeast English characters and situations, while applying universal truths which strike chords of familiarity the world over.
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
