What happens when you combine the new Rory Gallagher album with one of DC Comics’ hottest graphic artists and smash-hit crime author Ian Rankin?
This awesome special edition release for ‘Kickback City’ that’s what. Released today, this uniquely immersive LP inspired by crime noir passion features a specially compiled album of Rory Gallagher’s best crime novel influenced music. The stunning package also includes an exclusive new novella by Ian Rankin, fully illustrated by graphic artist Timothy Truman, as well as a special narration of the story by actor Aidan Quinn.
“Timothy Truman has really captured the nuances and the noir feel, I’m hugely impressed” said author Ian Rankin “It really works and Aidan Quinn has also done a great job. He really got into the character and narrative voice but it’s subtle and allows the listener to bring their own perspective to what’s going on.”
“This could be weird. If this album ends up in Rebus’s record collection I could
end up writing a story in which Rebus takes out this album and sits reading an Ian
Rankin story whilst listening to a Rory Gallagher album!”
