Ghosts & Graffiti: The new album.. with a difference. THE WATERBOYS, JOAN BAEZ, BILLY BRAGG, JOHN COOPER CLARKE, JOAN AS POLICEWOMAN, KING CREOSOTE, I AM KLOOT... Names that seldom appear in the same sentence. Let alone on the same album. In a future edition of Trivial Pursuit there may well be a question: Name the UK artist who first hit the Top 40 with her FOURTEENTH album? The answer of course is Thea Gilmore, with 2013's 'Regardless'. Long cherished by fans and critics alike, Thea Gilmore's 17-year career has seen her profile and audience grow with inexorable momentum since her first album, 'Burning Dorothy' was released when she was just 18. And now comes album number 15 with 'Ghosts & Graffiti'; a very different beast again. A compilation with its own twists - part new album, part retrospective - Gilmore has included four all-new songs that sit alongside six newly-recorded versions of old material, selected jewels from her back catalogue and, just for good measure, her recent run of A-list radio hits are also included. The new material is striking and sees Gilmore getting deeply political in this election year. 'My Voice', was written in a dressing room in Leamington Spaon election night 2010 as an angry reaction to the results.
