The Real Tuesday Weld

Originally inspired by a dream of British 1930s crooner Al Bowlly and American actress Tuesday Weld, Stephen Coates began to create music to try to recreate the sounds he heard in his childhood home - 'the crackling of radios playing swing and easy listening in some distant room.' As The Real Tuesday Weld, Coates doesn't hesitate to put those sounds to subversive use much like some of his most illustrious forebears and influences--such as Serge Gainsbourg and Ennio Morricone.

The Real Tuesday Weld makes nice sounds. Listen to more of them at MySpace and download eight more podcasts like the above at his site. The Real Tuesday Weld is playing Joe's Pub in NYC tonight (July 9, 2008). More tour dates and a video below...
