Twice Born Men Sweet Billy Pilgrim cd
2016 Kscope label budget reissue of SBP's Mercury Prize nominated album Twice Born Men from 2009.
 
---------
 
SBP - Tim Elsenburg (singing, guitar, producer, mixing), Anthony Bishop (banjo, bass) and Alistair Hamer (sequencing, drums) - caused quite a stir with its 2005 debut We Just Did What Happened And No One Came, navigating the delicate path between self-referential art rock and melodic folk rock.
 
The band's 2009 follow-up Twice Born Men, originally released on David Sylvian's Samadhi Sound label, attained Sunday Times 'CD of the Week' as well as an all-important Mercury Prize nomination.
 
Twice Born Men is at heart a melodic beast complimented by the exquisite swooning shiver of Elsenburg's vocal.
 
The 2016 CD version of Twice Born Men has been remastered by Tim Elsenburg and Francis Kimberley (Hungry Bear Mastering), and features 3 exclusive bonus tracks including Broken Down Procession (a collaboration with Adem, taken from BBC Radio 3's Late Junction) and In The Flesh? (a Pink Floyd cover).
