Wolfpack Of One - Home Taping Is Killing Me - Silver and Gold Double Cassette - 91 Track Album

10.00

Home Taping is Killing Me is three hours, two tapes and 48 tracks (secretly, track 49 is another 43 tracks - so, that’s what? 91 tracks in total) of turn-of-the-century-sensitive-singer-songwriting; emo demos, voicemail memos and heartbroken half-finished hits.

Back in the early 2000s Wolfpack of One was Andrew Wolfman’s high-concept/lo-fidelity stadium camp-fire solo project. He recorded hundreds of four-track tape laments that wobbled and shook like a drunk uncle at a wedding: occasionally heart-breaking, sporadically funny, and in constant danger of falling over. All underdog acoustic guitars, howling feedback and entry level electronics. Mostly in the genre ‘sad songs about girls sung quite loudly’.

Live, this “one-man odd-pop assault” (the Guardian) became something bigger and weirder. Scratchy sonic sketches mingled with home-made hip hop party-starters, drawing praise from the press for the “loudest singer in London” (Silent Night) “a wildly popular entertainer with a voice like a crowd” (Metro) and “the missing link between Daniel Johnson and David Lee Roth” (I think that was a compliment from the South London Press. It’s on the CV anyway).

You can hear evidence of this on the twin live albums Wolfpack of One Alive I and II (available for download here on the Wolfmania website and through all the major music sites) but Home Taping is the real shit. The good, the bad and the ugly of Wolfpack of One. You wouldn’t, shouldn’t and couldn’t write songs like this now - some of it is not OK, some of it sounds like Wonderwall recorded in a bin And some of it seems to think it’s sexy, but, hey! Isn’t that why N16 magazine called Wolfpack of One “The Best Band in Britain.”?

Until now, the bestselling Wolfpack book of the same name was the only place you could find trace of these songs, so it’s a genuine thrill to finally see them released into the wild: the primitive, the problematic and the proper bangers. This limited deluxe edition on Grave Tapes is presented on two tapes - one translucent mirrored silver and one gold - along with a free digital download of all 49 (secretly 91) songs. The double butterfly case holds two eight-panel j-cards which unfold into a full colour museum of Wolfpack ephemera. Order today to avoid extreme disappointment.
