Chuck Prophet - No Other Love [Indie Exclusive Limited Edition Red Splatter LP]

“No Other Love” is now on vinyl New West Records is proud to release this record on limited edition red splatter vinyl. “No Other Love” is the sixth album in a solo career that began when California native Chuck Prophet split from Green on Red in 1990. Green on Red helped lead the way for the insurgent country of the 1990s, but on his own Prophet has grown far beyond the category. His previous album, 2000’s “The Hurting Business”, was a striking breakthrough–hip-hop scratching and samples added to his bedrock country and R&B influences. “No Other Love” is maverick genre-bending in the manner of Beck and Jim White, and the stylistic variety suits Prophet’s compositions, peopled by crazed desperados and beautiful losers.

The songs run the gamut from the raunchy horn-driven swagger of “That’s How Much I Need Your Love” to the stinging, pleading “Elouise,” where his ever-inventive guitar vies with Farfisa organ. Prophet enjoys spicing songs with pop culture references, but his wry humour is counterbalanced by a strong moral undertow in “I Bow Down and Pray to Every Woman I See” and the beautiful “Summertime Thing.” This is a Prophet with plenty of honour.

No Other Love?” It’s hard to pin that record down exactly. I guess it’s a singer songwriter record. Out there on the fringes. Songs about dancing monkeys, failed criminals, and the storms that come between seasons. Judging from the liner notes, the production included a Chinese Menu of instruments. Aside from guitars and drums, the record features an Omnichord, a punchbowl, 45 RPM samples and string sections. It was recorded by Jim Waters (Jon Spencer, Sonic Youth etc) in Tucson, Oakland and San Francisco. Probably the best seller of my “career”. Thanks in no small part to the success of the radio friendly track “Summertime Thing”. We toured with Lucinda Williams the summer it came out. And put a whole mess of miles on the Econoline trying to keep up with her buses. Whenever I see Lucinda, to this day, I always tell her, “Lu, you put me on the map!”

This limited edition release will be pressed on red splatter vinyl at MPO in France. Mastered for vinyl by Jason NeSmith – Chase Park.

No Other Love” is now on vinyl for the first time outside of a limited German release in 2002. This release is limited to 4,000 copies worldwide
