Mike Ladd - Nostalgialator

In July 2004, Mike Ladd´s third solo album, entitled "Nostalgialator", will appear on !K7 Records. For the recording of the album, the former English lecturer locked himself up in a studio in Brooklyn/New York with the producing legend Scotty Hard. Together with Hard, who has already worked with artists such as the Wu-Tang Clan, the Stereo MC´s and Einstürzende Neubauten, he recorded most of the eleven songs that now feature on "Nostalgialator".

"The record works like a mix tape" says Mike with a view to the compilation nature of "Nostalgialator". The record combines rock, punk, blues and pop - a mixture that Mike justifies by explaining, "It is always about creating different kinds of black music. I am black – so what else could I do?"

One of the freshest and simultaneously poppiest songs on the album is "Housewives At Play", a piece in which Mike Ladd uses his typically socially critical and humorous style to poke fun at the bourgeois lifestyle of upper class wives: "I seen you driving in your Volvo V70 XC - Your life is Stylin - Oh so free flow heavenly - You're gourmet shopping - demi-gåce epoisse & brie…God bless the housewives at play". The track's sound is appropriately swathed in gleaming, decadent, twisted R&B tones, which should get the booties moving on the worldwide dance floor.

As an encore, "Sail Away Ladies" is a track from a totally different galaxy: Thanks to technology, Mike Ladd is able to compete with living and dead blues and country colleagues, such as Tom Waits and Johnny Cash.
Enjoy it!
