Listening To Slayer

One time Glaswegian David Shrigley’s collaboration and friendship with solo musician Iain Shaw stretches back years, with the duo making a super limited CDr compilation entitled “Awesome” back in 2013. The match is perfect, in a sense. Shrigley’s off-kilter social observational lyricism marries with Shaw’s off-beat delivery to create a separate entity. On Listening To Slayer, Shrigley has penned 3 songs that have been set to music by Shaw with witty, surreal results.

This spoken word record was released in 2006 on Azuli Records. It was written and recorded by DS and his old pal Martin Young. It contains the voices of numerous actors and friends of DS as well as DS himself. The original versions of four of these tracks appeared on the Late Night Tales compilation series. A new spoken word record is in the pipeline.

Worried Noodles

This was originally published by Tomlab Records in 2005 as a gatefold record cover containing an empty dust sleeve and a book of drawings with handwritten lyrics to imaginary songs. Tomlab decided to invite recording artists to interpret the lyrics of the original book, the results being released as a double CD with a version of the original book.

The Worried Noodles CD is a compilation of 39 songs from 39 artists. The lyrics are taken from the DS’s ‘Worried Noodles’ songbook published in 2005.
