The Puddle

Bio

With founding father, George D. Henderson forming the band in 1984 and writing killer songs since, The Puddle retains original bass player Ross Jackson and former Mink cohort Heath Te Au.

The 1992 release 'Songs For Emily Valentine' was re-released towards the end of 2005 on Powertool Records.

2008 saw the release of mini-album "No Love - No Hate" and now, at the start of 2009, full-length CD "The Shakespeare Monkey", both on Fishrider Records.

"The Puddle's fourth studio album in 25 years, The Shakespeare Monkey, proves over its 17 songs that, like last year's triumphant No Love No Hate, it's not merely a case of no one else making music like them; it's more a case of no one else can make music quite like this.

Puddle songwriter George D Henderson has absorbed Nick Drake's melancholy, The Stooges' raw power, The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band's desolate psychedelia, The Verlaines literate noir and krautrock's menacing hypnotism to create an epic of vulnerable splendour.

The Shakespeare Monkey is an album of poetry and paranoia, of shredded guitars and heavyhearted violins, of post-punk gloom and indiepop sparkle. Rough Trade are the sole UK stockists. Go forth. "
