SideOneDummy Records is excited to introduce THRIFTSTORE MASTERPIECE, an all-star music collective devoted to paying homage to the underdog records of years past. The star-studded group will release its first album, a revival of Lee Hazlewood’s 1963 debut Trouble Is A Lonesome Town, on July 9, 2013.
Brought together by producer/bandleader Charles Normal, Trouble Is A Lonesome Town features a prestigious lineup of artists including Pete Yorn, Frank Black (Pixies), Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), Courtney Taylor-Taylor (Dandy Warhols), Eddie Argos (Art Brut) and several others. To make this unique collection of re-invented tales even more special, the album will be released on what would have been country singer and original artist Lee Hazlewood’s 83rd birthday.
Producer and mastermind Charles Normal first stumbled upon Trouble Is A Lonesome Town while perusing a thrift store in Norway in the early 2000s. After falling in love with the album, Normal decided to record it as a more orchestrated statement, along with friend Frank Black (Pixies) and his brother, singer Larry Norman. The project stalled when Norman passed away of a heart attack in 2008 but thanks to the prompting of Modest Mouse front-man Isaac Brock, Charles rounded up a few more talented friends to finish what he had started.
Now, several years later, Charles’ vision of Trouble Is A Lonesome Town will finally get its much-deserved time in the spotlight.
