“If music really is the food of love, Hawksley Workman’s new albums are the way to go.” Says Darryl Sterdan, London Free Press.
Hawksley describes how Meat–a rougher, darker, “in the muck” sounding affair–was made in two weeks in the confines of his own home while the lighter and cheerier Milk was an unplanned accident that came about during Workman’s time in Sweden.
“It happened totally by accident. Meat was in the can, and I was busy doing stuff and all of a sudden there was a second record staring me in the face.”
Hawksley goes on to describe what motivates him to keep re-inventing:
“We’re really concentrating on the new material. We’ve probably played older stuff like Striptease 500 times, so we’re really inspired to play these tunes.”
“We all know that the way to get rich is to serve the same hamburger the same way the world over. But it’s just not something I’m capable of doing.”
