“I write songs and sing them” Pete Astor
Pete Astor singer with The Loft formed in 1983, and signed to Creation Records to release two classic and acclaimed singles, “Why Does the Rain” and “Up the Hill and Down the Slope.
Later, forming “The Weather Prophets” and giving us “Mayflower” in 1987.
Since then, he has performed under several monikers but of late his work has mostly been under his own name.
Critically acclaimed , his songs on his latest LP “Time on Earth ” (10/10) are, ” sad, maudlin, introspective yet funny, warm and uplifting – a collection of songs centred around death, ghosts and memory. (Doctors, priests and undertakers all appear in the lyrics multiple times, as do Jesus, Johnny Thunders, Kevin Ayers and Buddha. A nurse and a barmaid crop up so that it’s not a total boys club.)” Ged Babey -Louder Than War
“I write songs and sing them” -Well that’s not the half of it.
Classic, crafted songs, often spine tingling…….
