Album Review

Tunnel of Love, The “Fury Town” (Glorious Alchemical Co.) CD

ophelia necro   12/11/2006   A Library

Jeff Wagner is “The Tunnel of Love”, a one man project. The music is a mixture of sleazy, gothic burlesque, dark circus sideshow and slinky carnival tent tunes. Fans of Nick Cave or Tom Waits might be drawn to this as I was. Enticing lyrics on 8 of the 17 tracks. Tracks 4, 9 & 11 were part of Karen Penley’s “Not The More Lovely: A Circus Sideshow” which was staged in San Francisco in Sept. of 2005. All music and artwork on “Fury Town” was done by Jeff. Lyrics are included. Recently Jeff has started a project with Patrick Crawford, they are reworking the material from this album with more stripped down versions of the haunted rock and roll tearjerkers, the new project is called simply “The Tunnel.”
