The first thing that hits you is the voice. Alex Lipinski’s caressing sympathy, full-throated resentment, and the raw rockabilly excitement of earliest Elvis have grabbed unwary listeners from the West Country to Krakow, Berlin and New York, since he first left Somerset to become a crucial habitué of Soho’s legendary, lost 12-Bar Club.
He has followed in the footsteps of his hero Dylan to write in the Chelsea Hotel, and sung Elvis songs in the home of an admiring Liam Gallagher, who responded with a roaring “Acquiesce”. Hailed by Newcombe as, “a young man surely worth my time and efforts, I appreciate his endless hard work and do it yourself ethics. I feel like given the chance, Alex will surely find his audience given a little time... and make no mistake, some of these tracks have all the qualities of timeless music”, Lipinski’s album is bursting with bilious anger, responding to new times when injustice is naked and callous. ALEX LIPINSKI will release his album ‘Alex’ on Anton Newcombe’s A Recordings label on 10th November 2017.
