For the first time Pierre Omer has been working with a whole band : The Stewarts Garages
Conspiracy Crew (incl. members of Imperial Tiger Orchestra, Grey Mole and The Shit). The
new album was recorded at Space Eko-studio in London (Martina Topley Bird, Son of Dave).
Omer leaves the dark shores of Folk-Noir and opens clearly new musical horizons. The first
single "The End of the World" breathes the spirit of The Clash, „International Man of
Mystery“ is a fresh swing tune, carried by sharp guitars and banjos. The stunningly beautiful
walz „At Night the Sea is Ours“ sees Omer play the accordion for the first time in a while –
not to forget a very convincing version of country legend Hank Wiliams’ „Rambling Man“.
The musical universe of this London-born songwriter unfolds perfectly in this inspiring
environment together with his new band.
