Paul Morley meets Michael Nyman and David McAlmont, and explains why they would be the anti-Cowell Christmas No 1 in his world… and they give an exclusive festive performance…
Kate Mossman writes, in the January edition of The Word magazine…
“I’m still a bit stunned by David McAlmont and Michael Nyman’s The Glare - how McAlmont ever thought to write those strange, complicated uplifting tunes over the top of Nyman’s soundtracks; how Nyman himself was clever enough to leave him to it.
I saw them performing it at a one-off gig at London’s Union Chapel and I really hope it gets more airings.
It will be remembered for decades
one of the most remarkable, heard warming, though-provoking and utterly essential albums of the year
