Description

Pete Williams returns to The REP with brand new material.

H.O.L.L.A.N.D. is an album about crossing borders, some real, (Paradise - a dash eastward through Europe to post revolution Romania), others imagined. Frontiers both physical and metaphysical (Wind Whispers). Pete writes about these checkpoints in his life, journeys out of the 'twisted and cramped' environment where he grew up, through green belt and forest to the great outdoors (Caledonia) and 'the distant Black Mountains ' (So Far So Good) or longing for home 35,000 ft above Surabaya on a long haul flight (Heart etc.)

H.O.L.L.A.N.D. is an acronym, scrawled on graffitied maisonette walls by SPAR crossed lovers in Launderettes around the high rise estates where Pete grew up.

Hope Our Love Lasts And Never Dies is a reflective but forward looking record with wit, optimism and warmth in its grooves.

This is the perfect opportunity to see one of the city's great songwriters and performers do what he does best.

 

Reviews

H.O.L.L.A.N.D. is literate, acerbic, witty, melodic, conceptual and arguably his best yet

Andrew Collins, Writer & Broadcaster, Classic FM

Like Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney, Williams has the ability to make magic of the mundane, to find shades of sublimity in the humdrum”

Classic Rock Magazine

Another round of highly enjoyable and inspiring music, with the deftness of lyrics that would make a poet gnash their teeth in jealous repose

Sound and Vision

The songs are damn good

Iggy Pop. Iggy Confidential BBC6 music.
