Somewhat quietly last month, Mark Edwards released a new My Dad Is Dead CD--or, quietly to me, at least, since I didn't know about it until I got an e-mail about a week ago. Folks of a certain age will easily recognize some of the names involved here-- Brian Paulson produced, with original Prisonshake drummer Scott Pickering once again on drums-- but above all, this is a quality pack of songs. The one I've been kicking it with the most is the title track, "A New Clear Route", but you can listen to all the tracks over at the My Dad Is Dead web site and decide for yourself. You can buy the CD through the web site, too, and while you're at it, there's a whole bunch of other neat things on the site you can find if you hunt around (like a Peel Session "Hurry Up" with Doug Gillard on guitar, for instance).
