Feeling a bit camera shy


The Real Tuesday Weld were formed by Stephen Coates in 1999 inspired by dreams of crooner Al Bowlly and the American actress Tuesday Weld. They are influenced by 1930s jazz, Serge Gainsbourg, Ennio Morricone and minimalist electronica and are known for a series of critically acclaimed albums, arts projects and award winning collaborations with film makers. Their live performances are accompanied by extraordinary atmospheric visual projections.

After a series of low key releases on British, US and Japanese labels
the band became known for wedding the suggestive hiss of ancient shellacs
and vintage radio transmissions to samples, loops and glitchy beats. The
first full-length release When Cupid Meets Psyche (2001) was acclaimed as
"...warm and welcoming as well as arty... a gypsy knees-up, a psychedelic
bossa with the polite reeds of a ‘30s dance band crushed by booming hip-hop
bass..." (Q Magazine).
The follow up : I Lucifer (2004) was a critically acclaimed 'soundtrack' to
Glen Duncan's book of the same name (and a Times, Independent and Guardian
album of the week) spawning the multi-award winning animation 'Bathtime
in Clerkenwell' and a host of imitators.

The US only album "The Return of the Clerkenwell Kid' (2005) was another
potent mixture of classic and modern sounds and reprised older songs to
"tell the story of a love affair from before its beginning until after its
end". Described by NY Times as "oddball electronica-goes-Tin Pan
Alley" and "a hit of aural Ecstasy with a champagne chaser"

The band comprising: Stephen Coates, Vocals, samples, electronics; Jacques Van Rhijn, clarinet; Jed Woodhouse, percussion; Clive Painter, guitar and Don Brosnan on bass first performed their alternative soundtrack for Hans Richter’s 1948 surrealist classic ‘Dreams That Money Can Buy’ at London’s National Film Theatre NFT in 2005. The following year they were commissioned by the British Film Institute to record the score for release of the film on DVD followed by a spectacular performance in the Turbine Hall of London’s Tate Modern and subsequent sell out shows at the Bath, Belfast and Moscow Film Festivals with Brazilian electronic chanteuse Cibelle.

2008 sees the European wide release of 'The London Book of the Dead' already received with critical acclaim in the US and the UK (including the Sunday Times and The Independent album of the week).

Several new films and animations have been made to accompany the album and
The next year will feature commissioned work for the Victoria and Albert
museum, more film score work and live dates in Europe and the US.
