THE PINEAPPLE THIEF RELEASE DRUM PLAYTHROUGH FOR "WRETCHED SOUL"



THE PINEAPPLE THIEF RELEASE DRUM PLAYTHROUGH FOR "WRETCHED SOUL"


NEW LIVE ALBUM + BLU-RAY/DVD "NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH" OUT NOW ON KSCOPE




British progressive-rock band THE PINEAPPLE THIEF has revealed a new playthrough video for "Wretched Soul," featuring their critically-acclaimed and wildly revered luminary drummer Gavin Harrison (KING CRIMSON, PORCUPINE TREE). The live recording of "Wretched Soul" is found on the band's newly released record and blu-ray/dvd, Nothing But The Truth, which captures the band at their very best performing songs from their illustrious catalogue and is available now from Kscope.


Commenting on the live "Wretched Soul" percussion, Harrison states:


"I was working on an idea to rearrange some of the older Pineapple Thief songs. Maybe they could be songs we could play live or just re-record for a fun project. Whilst digging around the back catalog I came across the song Wretched Soul and really liked it. The original (which you could easily find on streaming services) is actually a ’straight 8ths’ groove and all in ‘double time’. I had a few attempts at rearranging it as it was - but I didn’t love the results. Then one day I was singing the tune to myself whilst sitting at the drums and I played a ‘half time’ shuffle rhythm and it seemed to fit nicely - however I would need to chop up the original track into a triplet feel to play that kind of groove over it. Bruce Soord supplied me with the original multi-track recording and I put an 8th note triplet cut right throughout the guitar track and reprogrammed the bass (just for the sake of making a demo to play to the band). It worked well going from half-time to double-time for the choruses. The other band members replaced their original parts to fit the new arrangement….and here it is."
