Unpaved Interview 16/10/2012

“With a title that borrows a line from a W.H. Auden poem, Charles Jenkins’ brand new album Love Your Crooked Neighbour with Your Crooked Heart is a stunningly original collection of country-folk songs packed with lyrical depth and big ideas. Damon Smith spoke to Charles Jenkins about how it all came together.”

‘It will be in our top 10 this year without a doubt’ ~ Basement Discs on LYCNWYCH

From the Basement Discs website:

Charles (or Chuck as we know him!) is most definitely one of Australia’s most gifted songsmiths and on this, his fifth & finest solo album titled ‘Love Your Crooked Neighbour with Your Crooked Heart’, he delivers a sublime selection of short stories in song form that will entertain, capture, enlighten & amuse you. Backed by his band of merry men, The Zhivagos, and with the sweetest harmony vocals provided bySUZANNAH ESPIE and DOUGLAS LEE ROBERTSON (Icecream Hands, of whom Chuck was/is lead singer), and with incredible horn arrangements written by his hugely talented son Henry (of CACTUS CHANNEL fame)….this album ticks all of the boxes….guaranteed! It will be in our Top 10 this year without a doubt…and it’s a very crowded field this year!
