RELEASED ON O GENESIS – 15TH SEPTEMBER 2014
“This music was hatched in Actual Sheds of unknown media, where the melody is sometimes the forerunner of the walk”
Primal Scream’s Martin Duffy is set to release his debut solo album on Tim Burgess’ O Genesis label on the 15th of September 2014.
‘Assorted Promenades’ is a soundtrack to a film that doesn’t exist. Released on vinyl and available to download the album features sixteen innovative and thought provoking instrumental compositions including the forthcoming lead album track ‘Crux’ which is accompanied by a stunning video.

Martin Duffy has always been thought of in relation toother bands – he didn’t really do things on his own. From Felt in 1985 through to Primal Scream today, he was always a part of someone else’s sum. It was Duffy, like Prince and Madonna he’s legendary enough to just go by one name, who was the lynchpin in the continuation of The Charlatans after Rob Collins’s tragic death – finishing recordings and stepping in until a new keyboard player could be found.
Throughout all that time, he worked on ideas of his own but had never played anything to anyone. He joined Tim Burgess’s solo band for a tour in 2012 not long after Tim had started his own label, O Genesis. Somewhere near motorway services on the M4, close to Reading they drove past an abandoned car on the hard shoulder that was on fire. It was seen as a very oblique sign that O Genesis should release the first solo material by Martin Duffy.
