Who Needs Babelfish? Primavera Band Profile #5

David Thomas Broughton

Even though his name can lead to mistake, David Thomas Broughton does not have anything to deal with the plump leader of Pere Ubu. Melancholic, dark and gifted with plenty of scenic resources, the British has been able with just one album to step beyond and decrease the distance between Antony and Will Oldham. The austere and suffering "The Complete Guide To Insufficiency", recorded in a church in just one day, is the best letter of introduction of this songwriter who has managed to narrow bows with Nick Drake and other nostalgic of greyish folk.
