MARK STEWART CONTRIBUTES TO JEFFREY LEE PIERCE COMPILATION THE TASK HAS OVERWHELMED US
'The journey is long and we are only riders.' - Jeffrey Lee Pierce
One of the projects that Mark Stewart was involved with before his passing was his contribution to 'The Task That Overwhelmed Us', the long-awaited fourth volume in The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project series. He finished and approved his recording and was excited to present it to the world.
'The Task That Overwhelmed Us' is a compilation featuring stellar interpretations of Pierce’s Gun Club and solo canons along with fresh works constructed from rehearsal skeletons, previously unheard lyrics & songs only performed live.
Out 29th September via Glitterhouse Records.
