Chasing Monsters (CD)
For those of you who have not heard of John Wesley before, he is currently the solo and rhythm guitarist in Fish's band and has performed on the Scotsman's last two albums, the music of which he also helped to create. Apart from that, he has been the (often acoustic) support act for Marillion and Fish many times and all around the world. Wesley's primary "partner in crime" on this CD is once again Mark Prator, who could be seen handling the drums during Wesley's recent support gigs for Fish in Europe. Another "old friend" from Wesley's 1998 album The Emperor Falls is Tracy LaBarbera; she is responsible for the keyboards on Fly Boy and the backing vocals on Fly Boy and Who We Love. The other musicians are new to the John Wesley Band. We find Patrick Bettison on bass, J. Robert on mandolin and violin, and Eric De Wolf programmed the loops on A Well Placed Hole. The cover of Chasing Monsters is, in my opinion, a lot more interesting than that of The Emperor Falls. Whereas the latter featured boring shades of brown and grey, Chasing Monsters shows a brightly coloured man/monster who seems to challenge anyone brave enough to look into its dark eyes. As I already suspected the first time I laid eyes on it, the cover art was created by none other than Mark Wilkinson (responsible for the early-Marillion covers as well as most of Fish's). The sketches inside the booklet are by Julie Wilkinson and they too add to the somewhat threatening and gloomy atmosphere which characterises many of the songs on the CD.
