CDs It Could Be Home #55845
Release Date: April 27, 2018
Formed in 1986, Plenty was Tim Bowness’s immediate pre-no-man band. In 2016 and 2017, Bowness and fellow founder members Brian Hulse and David K Jones re-recorded Plenty's catalogue of 1980s songs. Distinctively echoing then contemporary artists such as The Blue Nile and Prefab Sprout - alongside the iconic likes of David Bowie, David Sylvian, and Peter Gabriel - Plenty’s music alternated between anthemic pop, poignant ballads and ambient experiments. A meticulous labour of love and a fascinating hidden history, It Could Be Home was mixed and instrumentally augmented by Norwegian producer Jacob Holm-Lupo (White Willow). Mastered by The Pineapple Thief’s Steve Kitch, former Plenty guitarist Michael Bearpark, pianist Peter Chilvers (Brian Eno, Karl Hyde) and no-man violinist Steve Bingham also contribute.
