Rüfüs Du Sol – Solace - 2019 album of the year. Almost the perfect electronic indie pop album - Depeche Mode, Radiohead and alike could do worse than study these guys for some new but subtle ideas. SQ is superb as well.
Taken at Easington Colliery, the concept for the photo came from band members John Entwistle and Keith Moon. The pair had been discussing Stanley Kubrick and the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. The photo was taken by photographer Ethan Russell who claims it was only Townshend who had actually urinated on the piling. Water poured from film canisters was used to produce the desired visual from the other members of the band. The sky was added later to the photo to give it the effect of being “other worldly.”
