Ted Leo & the Pharmacists
On his newest full-length, The Hanged Man, Ted Leo has gone all Richard Thompson (as opposed to going all Morrissey on his last solo release in 2010, The Brutalist Bricks). Best known from New York hardcore band Citizen’s Arrest, as well as his duo with Aimee Mann, the Both, Leo recorded these latest tracks in a sparsely equipped Rhode Island home studio, with the intimate setting in one of the nation’s tiniest states a metaphor for the stripped-down sad-pop acoustics and the personal nature of the topics explored. He’s been backed since 1999 by the Pharmacists, still with longtime guitarist-bassist James Canty and not-quite-as-longtime drummer Chris Wilson, both of whom will take the Casbah stage with Leo on November 1.
