is the pseudonym of Leeds based alternative/folk singer/songwriter Paul Marshall. He decided Lone Wolf was the most appropriate name because he never allows anyone else to become involved in his writing process. The first album under the Lone Wolf name «The Devil & I» was recorded by Jeniferever frontman Kristofer Jonson in various locations around Uppsala, Sweden.
I went to school at a particularly bad time for dance music that was getting churned out left right and centre. I can still hear this echoing down the school corridors.
At Manchester LCCC. Truly, truly amazing. Everything about it.
Just simply fucking brilliant.
I can't believe Jason has made it onto this list twice. But the album «Let Me Go, Let Me Go, Let Me Go» is possibly the saddest record I have ever heard. I have to choose the right moment to listen to it. Once during the recording of my album, I walked from the centre of Uppsala, Sweden out to where I was staying in the pouring rain at night. I listened to this album and heard EVERYTHING. It's a wonderful record but really it is a heart breaker.
I'm still looking for an original copy of Scott 4 on vinyl. Damn it!
When my girlfriend and I had our first big argument (nearly seven years ago) - which is always a horrible part of a relationship - I remember walking along listening to this on my iPod and realising how trivial the argument was. I went straight back and we are still here together now.
I saw an advert for it on the telly when I was about 5 or 6 years old and my mother could see that I really dug the small snippets of the songs. So on a whim she bought it for me on cassette! I wore it out because I listened to it so much as a child.
I like the fact that it's a really kind of jolly song but with real melancholy undertone. Plus it will sound like a message from me from beyond the grave!
I was listening to this when I quit my job to be a full time musician two years ago. Summers don't get much better than that!
I don't even know why I have put this as a guilty pleasure. I really think it's one of the best songs ever. The chorus gets me every time.
The man says «I live for nothing anymore». I need say nothing else.
Describing the perfect anthem for Leeds is kinda tough, but this song is definitely one of the best to have come out of Leeds in a long time! In fact if you are reading this, turn round and give the person next to you a high five. Now tell me you don't feel better?
Just listen to it! I just saw them play it at Leeds Festival and I nearly shed a tear! So emotive.
This tune is DARK. But I don't think it's possible not to move to it!
I remember being about 7 years old and having a couple of pounds for pocket money, and I bought this song on 7" for Collier Row Woolworths!
This was a song that used to make me laugh because I thought the guy was just a nutter. But I've ended up loving Ivor's work and I think he was a legend.
I have a few songs from a few different soundtracks that are all wonderful. Ry Cooder - Southern Comfort, John Carpenter's «Assault On Precinct 13», «Dirty Harry», «Paris Texas», «The Hitcher»....
It's just got Sunday all over it!
I would go as far as to say that this is possibly the greatest thing that has ever been written. The lyrics, the vocals, the recording, the string arrangement. Christ. I could talk about it all night. Never has a 7 min song sounded so short. I just want to put it on again and again and again.
