Former Mansun frontman Paul Draper returns with a collection of his most focused and ambitious work.
A self-help manual on how to become a complete cult in the music industry, Cult Leader Tactics is a brilliantly dark commentary on an industry he is all too aware of.
Paul plays the majority of the instruments on the album (including lead vocals, guitar and various Moogs and synthesisers).
Produced with long-time collaborator and acclaimed producer Paul ‘P-Dub’ Walton (Massive Attack, The Cure, Bjork) at Loft Studios, the album includes guest appearances from Steven Wilson and Gam (Sweat), as well as a 288-person C.L.T. Lockdown Choir.
Limited edition deluxe 3CD/DVD (with 5.1) in a 60 page book, which includes 24 chapters of exclusive extracts from the book ‘Cult Leader Tactics’ written by Paul Draper and only available exclusively as part of this deluxe set (the book is a satirical look at how to make it in your chosen profession by deploying the machiavellian tactics outlined in the book).
Cult Leader Tactics offers a satirical analysis of the self-help manual genre. A guide on how you can get to the top of your chosen profession, or ahead in life and in affairs of the heart, by acting in a Machiavellian manner, employing dirty tricks or ‘Cult Leader Tactics’ to achieve your life goals. After experiencing these types of human behaviours and themes, the album arrives at the conclusion that the only true answer in life is love.
