Following his first new music in twelve years (this summer's 'EP ONE'), Paul Draper, former Mansun frontman, announces the release of a second four track EP of new material.
Paul Draper was the frontman, main songwriter and producer of Mansun - one of the most iconic bands of the '90s. The band's debut album 'Attack of the Grey Lantern' entered the UK chart at No 1. The band split in 2003 while recording their fourth LP (partially released on 2004's Kleptomania).
The first track from 'EP Two', "Friends Make The Worst Enemies", is a knock-out punch of a track; five minutes of relentless chasmic melody and melancholy - an immediate reminder of why Paul's songs were rarely far from the FM dial during his former band Mansun's supernova career, co-written and featuring The Anchoress following their collaboration successes on 'EP One' and Catherine's solo album 'Confessions of a Romance Novelist'. The following tracks: "Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid", is a spacious ballad recorded on guitar and piano; "Don't You Wait, It Might Never Come" is a ramped up, surging rock'n'roll song; and the last track is a bare bones acoustic version of "Friends Make The Worst Enemies".
