Chuck Prophet | No Other Love - Splatter Vinyl
Limited edition red splatter vinyl
‘No Other Love’ was the sixth album in a solo career that began when California native Chuck Prophet split from Green on Red in 1990.
Green on Red helped lead the way for the insurgent country of the 1990s, but on his own Prophet has grown far beyond the category.
'No Other Love’ is maverick genre-bending in the manner of Beck and Jim White, and the stylistic variety suits Prophet’s compositions, peopled by crazed desperados and beautiful losers.
The songs run the gamut from the raunchy horndriven swagger of ‘That’s How Much I Need Your Love’ to the stinging, pleading ‘Elouise’, where his ever-inventive guitar vies with Farfisa organ.
Prophet enjoys spicing songs with pop culture references, but his wry humour is counterbalanced by a strong moral undertow in ‘I Bow Down and Pray to Every Woman I See’ and the beautiful ‘Summertime Thing’. This is a Prophet with plenty of honour
