Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project

The Journey is Long

LP: March 30, 2012  / CD:  APRIL 9, 2012

Format: CD/2-LP · Catalog-No: GRCD/2-LP 762
The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project is following 2009’s acclaimed We Are Only Riders collection with a second volume of the late Gun Club leader’s previously-unreleased works-in-progress, brought to life by old friends, collaborators and acolytes…

This time, the Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project includes Nick Cave (who also takes part in a return duet with Debbie Harry on ‘The Breaking Hands’), Mick Harvey, Debbie Harry & Chris Stein, Lydia Lunch, The Jim Jones Revue, Kid Congo Powers, Tav Falco’s Panther Burns, Mark Lanegan and Isobel Campbell, Youth’s Vertical Smile, Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate), Warren Ellis, Barry Adamson, Bertrand Cantat & Pascal Humbert, Thalia Zedek & Chris Brokaw, Hugo Race, Dom Beken and Kris & Michelle Needs, sometimes in different combinations…

The album is released on March 30th on German label Glitterhouse on both CD and double vinyl, with 20 page booklet featuring memorabilia and extensive liner notes by Kris Needs. Proceeds from the first volume went to Amnesty International, but Pierce’s sister Jacqui is setting up The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Foundation to help fulfil her brother’s long-standing desire to provide musical instruments for under-privileged kids in LA.

A third and final volume called The Task Has Overwhelmed Us is already in production for release later in the year. (See original post at Glitterhouse Records)
