THE GOREY END
Grammy Nominated - Best Classical Crossover Album
The Gorey End, Writer / Illustrator Edward Gorey enjoyed 'Banging in the Nails' so much he sent us a large box of his unpublished stories, some of which we adapted and turned into songs. Then, before he could hear them, Mr Gorey passed away. So sad. But here are those songs, with the Kronos Quartet providing strings and barks, on our CD The Gorey End. We think he would have enjoyed them. If he hadn't passed away. Tragically. Released in 2003
Martyn Jaques vocals, piano, organ, accordion and ukelele / Adrian Hughes drums and toys / Adrian Stout bass, musical saw and horn / Kronos Quartet: David Harrington violin, John Sherba violin, Hank Dutt viola, Jennifer Culp cello This Album is dedicated to the memory of Edward Gorey.
