‘A songwriter who never falters and is maybe even getting better with age.’ All Music
‘The master of less is more’ The Guardian
Pete Astor led Creation Records’ groups The Loft and The Weather Prophets, writing songs
and releasing records that helped define the sound of the label and the emerging Indie
genre. He has gone on to a lengthy solo career since then; writing, recording and releasing
music on a range of labels including Matador, Heavenly, Warp, EMI and Fortuna Pop. Since
2017 Astor has been signed to Tapete Records, home to Robert Forster, Lloyd Cole and
Comet Gain among many reputable others. He will be playing songs from his new record,
Tall Stories & New Religions where he is re-visits and re-imagines his songs from throughout
his lengthy and estimable career.
A lifetime of listening has led me to believe that Pete Astor’s songs would have always found
a way to reach an audience. If he’d been a Californian baby boomer, he’d have ended up in
the Capitol Records building in Los Angeles, laying down late-night grooves with the
Wrecking Crew for a largely-neglected, slightly gloomy, pop album that’d now be worth a
fortune. If he’d been born into post-War Britain, earnest girls in sweaters would’ve fallen in
love with him, and his songs, in Embassy-fogged folk clubs. – Danny Kelly, NME
