Lambchop

In February 2015 it will be 15 years since Lambchop first released their landmark album 'Nixon'.

The band has decided to present a select number of shows in the UK and Europe to celebrate this anniversary accordingly, performing the record in its entirety, with focus on the songs, the band, and its members both past and present.

To that end these shows will serve as a tribute to Marc Trovillion, a key founding member of Lambchop who passed away in 2014, as well as a recognition of the contributions of the many musicians and friends, who played on this classic release.

Pared away from the recording’s ambitious production values, these shows should prove to be a unique and rare opportunity to remember, reconnect with, and reflect upon what is arguably one of Lambchop’s most significant offerings.

"Nixon is the album when Lambchop became the band people think of as Lambchop“ Pitchfork

"The most fully realised Lambchop record, the most perfect blend yet of their alt country roots and their obsession with soul." Mojo

Lambchop started their EU tour in Florence last night!!

Don't miss them in your city - see our tourdates section for details!



Lambchop are going on tour in Europe this fall (see the dates below) and asked their producer Mark Nevers to creatively tinker with or rather re-envision the 2012 masterpiece that is 'Mr. M.'

Mr. Nevers  came back with 22 minutes of abstractness which in Mr. Nevers assessment: " ended up owing just as much to Carl Stalling the great sound track composer of 1940's cartoons - which is only fitting since i spend most of my time in a cartoon universe "  Indeed, a universe  we all love, and Lambchop fans will love too, as a complement to the sonic majesty of said Mr. M. 

All tour dates, tracklisting, and more info after the jump!! 
This is the track listing as both Titled and Created by Mr. Nevers from the existing sounds of Mr. M:

1. Suicide Lasts Forever
2. Dishes To Wash Music To
3. Prelude To My Hallucination
4. The Coral Castle

MR. N. will be available digitally through all retailers and services. 

Kurt Wagner asked for comment had this to say:
" this one's been Marky's "baby" from start to finish which is appropriate cause he just had an actual baby "

Mark Nevers has this to say:
"The Coral Castle is the best thing since Good Vibrations. Brian Wilson will get a boner."

Mr. Wilson was not available for comment.

Mark's baby gives it 2 drools up!
