This week's edition of the Stupefied Playlist© is brought to us by none other than Scottish post punk legend, Paul Haig. Mostly known for his work as vocalist of Josef K on the Postcard label, Paul has released about a dozen albums, as well as a series of excellent singles, over the last 30 years or so. Much of Paul's solo work is currently available via his own label, Rhythm of Life, as well as classic catalog labels, LTM and Disques du Crepescule.
Right now, Paul is getting ready for the release of his 12th solo album, Kube, on October 14. Preceding that on Sept. 16 is the double A-side single, "UW2B / Red Rocks" (for pre-orders, click here for iTunes UK, and here for iTunes US).
As a long time fan of Paul's work, I am truly honored to be able to share his playlist. I hope you know how lucky we are in this day in age to be able to get a peek into what makes our favorite artists tick. A huge thanks to Paul for the list...Now, go and check his music!
