About this item

There has been an issue with barcode on the limited vinyl version and so it has been pulled until this is resolved. We should have it back in stock again later in the week. Sorry! 

‘West Kirby County Primary’ - written and recorded by Bill Ryder-Jones in his childhood bedroom at his mother’s house in West Kirby before being filtered through Liverpool’s legendary Parr Street Studios - is the third full length album from Bill Ryder-Jones and finds him fronting a classic band set-up.

Each of ‘West Kirby County Primary’s ten tracks offers a sneaked glance into his private world; they eavesdrop on a set of encounters that go about “turning stories into beautiful truth” set to glorious molten melody that explodes like fireworks over water.

It all adds up to a remarkable record by one of Domino’s most cherished musicians - a musical polymath as at ease on stage with the Manchester Camerata (where he performed as part of the Manchester Literature Festival last Autumn) or on live guitar duties with Arctic Monkeys as he is on production duties with Hooton Tennis Club and The Wytches.

The follow-up to ‘A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart’ was produced by Ryder-Jones and mixed by James Ford.
