Nick Cave and Blondie's Debbie Harry duet on The Gun Club tribute album Print E-mail
Friday, 10 February 2012
ImageNick Cave, Blondie's Debbie Harry, Mark Lanegan and Isobel Campbell, Warren Ellis, Lydia Lunch and more are all set to appear on 'The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project - The Journey is Long' album, a tribute to the frontman of cult 1980s alt.rock band The Gun Club, who died from a brain haemorrhage in 1996.

The compilation album will be released on April 9 and features versions of previously unreleased and unfinished songs by Pierce. It follows 2009's similar 'We Are Only Riders' record. A third volume, called 'The Task Has Overwhelmed Us', will be released later in the year.

Nick Cave duets with Debbie Harry on 'The Breaking Hands' and Cave also sings the album's opening track, 'City In Pain'. The Jim Jones Revue also feature on the album. For a full list of those taking part, see the tracklisting below.

Pierce's one time collaborator Cypress Grove has said of the album: "The idea was that, these are not our songs, we merely interpret them... In some cases the artists have had to finish the songs, so there can be no nonsense about this not being as good as the original version as these are the original versions! It's a musical collective of artists who have come together to interpret or complete skeletal, unfinished material by Jeffrey. Where possible we have used Jeffrey's contributions, so he actually appears posthumously on this album."

Of the collaborative approach the artists took to the album, he added: "I like to think of it as being like Josh Homme's 'The Dessert Sessions'."
