Epic Soundtracks - Good Things - CD
Perhaps best known as a co-founder of British post-punkers the Swell Maps, Epic Soundtracks reinvented himself as an eccentric, critically acclaimed piano balladeer during the'90s with his first-ever solo album, Rise above.
Featuring guest appearances from admirers like Lee Ranaldo, Kim Gordon, & J Mascis, the album was a warm, gentle exercise in traditional style pop that placed Soundtracks and his piano firmly at center stage.
A follow-up album, Sleeping Star, appeared in 1994. In 1995, Soundtracks joined Lemonheads leader Evan Dando on his solo tour, and wound up co-writing the track "C'Mon Daddy," which appeared on the group's next album. That same year,Soundtracks issued his third solo album, Change My Life. Sadly, on November 22, 1997, Soundtracks was found dead in his London flat. "Good Things" is his final album, recorded just before he passed away and issued now for the first time.
