Saint Etienne Presents Songs for the Dog & Duck [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2009 compilation curated by Saint Etienne, the British group led by songwriters Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs and fronted by vocalist Sarah Cracknell. This compilation is a tribute to the Soho pubs that have proved fertile ground for musicians, publishers and general Pop-obsessed layabouts. The Dog & Duck, specifically, was the pub of choice for the Heavenly label, an annex of the office on Frith Street. This is a soundtrack for a session in the Dog & Duck (or the Blue Posts, or the Ship), a jukebox selection to reflect the characters and conversations taking place a stones throw from Denmark Street, the 2 I's, and the 100 Club; totemic locations in British Pop history. 25 tracks including cuts from Duffy Power, Les Paul & Mary Ford, Ohio Players, Alex Chilton, Sniff 'N' the Tears and many others. Ace Records.
