'Having recently relocated from my hometown of Liverpool to Glasgow, I am beyond thrilled to have been invited to collaborate with the local legends that are 1 of 100. Musically and politically Glasgow and Liverpool have always been sympatico, and my two favourite ever Wild Swans gigs took place here (29-years apart) so this union is particularly special for me.
'The Love Dragoon' is taken from a collage I made for the cover of my recently released Death Must Be Beautiful album. I imagine this character to be the Captain of a platoon of pansexual hedonist dandies - too distracted by pleasure and amour and to ever use their sabres for anything beyond popping wine corks. The ornate frame, a nice thing in itself, is from an 170-year old book on architecture. Superimposing the frame over the collage portrait with Richie in the 1 of 100 office made a 'third' thing that I think better than the individual parts.
