Junkyard Hearts (2CD)
Two years on from Come To Where I’m From – and proving that he’s ever his own man – Joseph released a quartet of EPs (under the collective name of Junkyard Hearts) that were only available on his UK tour of 2002. A decade on, these scarce-as-hen’s-teeth recordings are being reissued in two-CD set, allowing those unable to attend that tour the chance to give some love to these half-forgotten gems. They very much demand your attention – 19 confirmations of a man at the peak of his substantial powers.
“An oddball songsmith who eaves words, guitars and a whole heap of discordant sounds into songs that hang around your head long after they finish” – Uncut
