howling for the highway home terry stamp cd
Terry Stamp followed his acclaimed Burning Shed debut 'Bootlace Johnnie and the Ninety-Nines' (Uncut's 'Americana Album Of The Month' and Daily Mirror's 'Album Of The Week') with 'Howling for the Highway Home', which featured twelve evocative narrative-driven songs from the former leader of 1970s cult band Third World War (TWW). 
 
Along with covers and name-checks from Marc Almond and Paul Weller and an article in Classic Rock, 'Howling for the Highway Home' was yet another strong addition to the growing reputation of this underrated and influential singer-songwriter.
 
<i>"There's a songwriting talent here worthy of comparison to Waits, Springsteen, Davies and Dylan. Anything can happen in a Terry Stamp lyric, where the join between narrative fantasy, true-life observation and oblique autobiography is impossible to spot. Before the end, you'll be propositioned in Revolution Square, receive a drunken phone call from the Reeperbahn, and find yourself parked out by the lake, contemplating drinking it all? Quite some journey."</i> - Marcus Gray Classic Rock March 2007
