The Chronicles Of Modern Life
Facts about this album:

Henry also dabbles in production, including a forthcoming album by his tour support act Lotte Mullan.
‘The Chronicles Of Modern Life’ is released on Stiff, Henry’s first ever label back in the ’70s.
Liverpudlian Henry Priestman’s 30 years in the music business have been eventful. He supported the Sex Pistols in 1977; sold millions of albums in the late ’80s/early ’90s as part of The Christians; produced Mark Owen’s post-Celebrity Big Brother erm, smash ‘In Your Own Time’, and played on loads of people’s records. This, his first solo album, is a set of homemade, ramshackle pop songs characterised by titles such as ‘Did I Fight The Punk Wars For This?’ and is a welcome addition to a varied and charming back catalogue.
