Two of the most important players in the post-punk scene have united with producer Jacknife Lee to record an album. Lol Tolhurst, (drummer and later keyboardist with The Cure from their inception in 1976 until 1988) and Budgie of Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Creatures fame will release Los Angeles via Play It Again Sam on November 3.
The video for the title track is available to stream and download now, and features vocals from James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem. The video was directed by John Liwag which features skateboarding icon Mason Silva, a crew of goth cheerleaders led by Sydney Love, Lol and Budgie drumming and lip-synching, and shots of historic Los Angeles.
As well as Murphy, the album features an impressive array of guests, including Primal Scream‘s Bobby Gillespie who adds his vocals to no less than three tracks, U2′s The Edge and Mark Bowen from IDLES.
