Listening To SlayerIain Shaw & David Shrigley , 2016
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.
