Kitchen Disco Records are excited to announce the release of The Story of Ian Prowse, a career-spanning retrospective of Ian Prowse’s music on 28 February 28 2020.
The album includes much-loved tunes from Ian’s first indie cult band, Pele; classic songwriting from Amsterdam; and favourites from the three Ian Prowse solo LPs released this decade.
The Story of Ian Prowse also includes duets with Christy Moore and Elvis Costello, five songs playlisted by BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2, a #1 hit in South Africa and a brand new track called Only The Love. This release will underline Ian’s reputation as probably the UK’s most underrated songwriter.
Often described as the ‘Scouse Springsteen’ for his full on live performances, Prowsey is supporting The Story of Ian Prowse with an extensive acoustic tour across Britain, starting immediately after supporting Elvis Costello and the Imposters up and down the country in March.
This live acoustic show will not only include Prowsey’s most well known and loved tunes but it will also share some of the wild and wonderful stories behind them. What really happened to end Pele? What were the terrible downs and unexpected ups that occurred to get Amsterdam going? What’s it been like to meet & play with your heroes?
All will be revealed on The Story of Ian Prowse tour 2020!
