Richard Dawson – 2020
2020 is the sixth solo album from Richard Dawson, the black-humoured bard of Newcastle.
The greatest storytellers merely give you information in the right order. That’s exactly how he builds the stories on this album, each one a simple tale about someone in crisis. But the stories are so well arranged, so self-aware. They point directly at the invisible structures that put us in crisis without ever naming them.
