The Legendary Bad Seeds founding member, Hugo Race is back from touring overseas to play more intimate shows for Australian audiences.
Born in Melbourne, Hugo has spent most of the last 25 years living in Italy, France, Germany, UK and the USA. With his international True Spirit collective he has produced 14 Hugo Race & True Spirit albums, the latest, 53rd State released in Australia and Europe in 2008 to rave reviews, followed in 2009 by the ‘bootleg’ CD Live in Wolow Jail, recorded in a maximum security penitentiary in Poland.
Hugo’s various collaborations span another ten or more albums, spread over several continents including his USA project Dirtmusic (their BKO album, recorded in Bamako, Africa, a cross-cultural collaboration with the Malian Tuareg group Tamikrest, cited as one of the best albums of 2010), the French-American band Lilium, the Brazilian project Moses Complex, the Berlin-based Rogall’s Electric Circus Sideshow, and the Sicilian band Sepiatone with whom Hugo has released two albums with a third in the pipeline. In 2010, Hugo’s album Between Hemispheres, a mix of African instruments and edgy electronica, received rave reviews globally.
Fatalists is his first record as a solo singer/songwriter and the Italian music press hailed it as a “masterpiece.”
