NOT IN STOCK
"It's a real pleasure to hear a new album of Fred's songs. He's rather shy about his singing, but he shouldn't be; he sounds like a cross between David Byrne, Christoph Anders and Robert Wyatt. The songs often make use of samples from well-known sources, and album has to be the most user-friendly he has produced in years. This is Fred in real pop mode, a fascinating, and yes, commercial album. Guest musicians include Mike Johnson and Dave Kerman on vocals, Bernd Lehman on clarinet and sax and Sebastian Gramms on double bass. Other guest appearances include Bill Clinton, Burt Bacharach, Serge Gainsbourg And Helmut Kohl."
