John Parish is best known for his work with the acclaimed British artist PJ Harvey, which dates back to when she was backing singer and guitarist in his cult band Automatic Dlamini. He is also an accomplished composer, solo artist, and producer. Parish co-wrote and performed on Eels’ 2001 album 'Souljacker', and has worked with Sparklehorse, 16 Horsepower, Tracy Chapman, Adrian Utley and Howe Gelb/Giant Sand, among many others.
His first release on Thrill Jockey Records for eight years, the last being 'Once Upon A Little Time' in 2005, new album 'Screenplay' is a collection of tracks taken from John's acclaimed film scores over the years; drawing from several Parish scores including ‘Nowhere Man’, ‘Plein Sud’’, ‘Sister’ (original title L’enfant d’en Haut) and Patrice Toye’s latest film ‘Little Black Spiders’. ‘Sister’, directed by Ursula Meier, won the special Silver Bear at the 2012 Berlin Film Festival, and was shortlisted for Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars.
While a couple of his scores have been released as Original Soundtracks, 'Screenplay' is the first that brings his film work into clear focus. He explains: “rather than release each one as a ‘Soundtrack to...’ it might be an interesting idea to try and compile an album with the highlights from several movies, something that would be a good listen regardless of whether you have seen the films”. So 'Screenplay' was born... a collection of scores that captures the beauty of each film giving listeners the sense of the atmosphere without having seen them.
'Screenplay' is out on 15th April 2013 via Thrill Jockey in the UK/Europe and these shows will see his band perform the album live with visual accompaniment plus selections from his extensive back catalogues.
