Emporers New Clothes

There’s good thinking there friend; that is to think of the Emperors New Clothes as wide-eyed, dark-souled inheritors to the sound experimentation crown of Can and Coltrane, Massive Attack and Lee Scratch Perry and all stops in between. Emerging from a mysterious past in the shadow of the Tyne bridge, founder members Luke Hannam and Andy Knight bunked the train fare to the big smoke and set about spreading their word with two acclaimed albums for Acid Jazz – ‘Unsettled Life’ and ‘Wisdom and Lies.’ The band split under the pressure of recording their third with overbearing hip-hop producer Trevor Jackson and all that is left are the extraordinary soundscapes of their studio work and one live masterpiece, ‘East on The West Road,’ which was recorded at Ealing Film Studios for the aborted Acid Jazz film.Emperors New Clothes were the band that could have made trip hop fall over and the rest of the world sit up and take notice with one freaked-out voyage into the realms of mellowed-out excess. The king may well have been in the all-together but this lot were on a rocket ship to another planet!
