Insecure Men - the band led by the fiercely talented songwriter and musician Saul Adamczewski and his schoolmate and stabilizing influence, Ben Romans-Hopcraft - present Subaru Nights, their first ‘official’ track since signing to Fat Possum Records.
A celebration of suburbia and exotica, like Mike Leigh’s Abigail’s Party soundtracked by the sounds of Martin Denny’s imaginary Hawaii, Subaru Nights, was written by Saul at The Queens Head pub in Stockwell, the Fat White Family’s notorious South London ‘practice space’, subsequently recorded onto an ancient Tascam at Sean Lennon’s studio in upstate New York while Saul was visiting the Moonlandingz and finally produced by Sean Lennon and mixed by Marta Salogni.
Insecure Men, who blend together exotica, easy listening, lounge and timeless pop music, ‘formed’ in 2015, when Saul began to write quieter more reflective songs - “What I did in Insecure Men couldn’t really be expressed via Fat White Family”, explained Saul.
The band has already had a relatively hectic history (Cole, Zumi and Oakley from US garage rock outfit Black Lips played on some of the early sessions) but they have settled down into a stable (but large) line-up centered around Saul (vocals/guitar) and Ben (bass/backing vocals). Original lapsteel player Sean Lennon has been replaced by Marley Mackey (Dirty Harrys) who is the son of Steve Mackey of Pulp. “Huge John Shuttleworth fan” Victor Jakeman (Claw Marks) plays the organ; Joe Isherwood (We Smoke Fags) plays keyboards and saxophonist Alex White is on loan from Fat White Family. Arguably, the lynch pin is a mysterious South London music teacher known only as Steely Dan, who plays vibraphone and steel drums. And Saul’s old pal, Jack Everett (Fat White Family, Warmduscher) anchors it all on drums.
