Thomas Dolby Live Release

(PR) Thomas Dolby, looking like a character out of a steampunk novel, takes the stage in a giant rumpled overcoat and vintage aviator glasses. The pioneer of the synthpop and new wave movements, is ready to lead you through his unique world view full of submarines, mad scientists, and the North Pole.

On June 10th Dolby and Invisible Hands Music will release a deluxe live CD and DVD. Called The Sole Inhabitant, material for the discs was culled from Dolby's 2006 US tour of the same name. Previously released in Europe, the two-disc set will now be available to fans in the United States.

Dolby's set includes the powerful yet ethereal "Leipzig Is Calling," folds a sample of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech into "The Flat Earth," and puts a fresh face on popular favorites "Hyperactive" and "She Blinded Me With Science." On the DVD, the visuals along with Dolby's engaging and informative stage banter, give a rich interpretation of the narrative of each song. The DVD also gives greater insight into Dolby's artistry with a sit-down interview, a detailed explanation of his rig and a personal walk-through of how he creates a song.

Critics across the US had high praise for The Sole Inhabitant Tour. The Washington Post said, "Dolby sounded startlingly relevant, no easy trick for a talented artist whose entire career is usually unfairly surmised in a single, shouted phrase." And the Chicago Tribune added, "…the evening unfolded as a celebration of [Dolby's] past accomplishments and a harbinger for his future as a revitalized performer." The Sole Inhabitant documents this fantastic trip to the inner world of Thomas Dolby, a voyage he wants to share.
