The Week That Was in London

Sunderland based Field Music released two full albums, the eponymous 2005 debut and 2007’s Tones of Town. Field Music, concerned that being in a band in the traditional sense was restricting their creative output, branched off with David Brewis’ School of Language album Sea From Shore in Feb. ‘08. Now comes The Week That Was, Peter Brewis’s first solo foray. The Week That Was, written and recorded in late 2007 at Field Music’s 8 Studio in Sunderland, emerged from an imagined crime thriller dreamt up by Peter and inspired by Paul Auster’s labyrinthine storytelling. The Week That Was features contributions from Peter’s Field Music colleagues, Andrew Moore and David Brewis, along with Pete Gofton on vibraphone, singing by Jennie Redmond, John Beattie on cornet and Laura Cullen on flute, as well as percussive and vocal duties from This Ain’t Vegas’ Jordan Hill and Richard Amundsen. The strings were played by Emma Fisk and Peter Richardson (veterans of previous Field Music albums) and Pauline Brandon.
