Cult Leader Tactics

    'Cult Leader Tactics' is a self-help manual on how to become a complete cult in the music industry & is his first solo album since 2017's much- lauded 'Spooky Action'.

    'Cult Leader Tactics' offers a satirical analysis of the self- help manual genre. A guide on how you can get to the top of your chosen profession, or ahead in life & in affairs of the heart, by acting in a Machiavellian manner, employing dirty tricks or 'Cult Leader Tactics' to achieve your life goals. After experiencing these types of human behaviours & themes, the album arrives at the conclusion that the only true answer in life is love.

    Paul plays most of the instruments on the album, including lead vocals, guitar & various Moogs & synthesisers. An album produced with long-time collaborator & acclaimed producer Paul 'P-Dub' Walton (Massive Attack, The Cure, Bjork) at Loft Studios, it also includes guest appearances from Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson & Gam of the band 'Sweat' as well as featuring a 288- person C.L.T. Lockdown Choir.

    'Cult Leader Tactics' offers a selection of Paul's most focused & ambitious work so far, a brilliantly dark commentary on an industry he is all too aware of.

    Grey House

      As the frontman and songwriter of one of the most iconic bands of the late ‘90s, the creative force that brought the classic hit single “Wide Open Space” and the Number 1 album ‘Attack Of The Grey Lantern’ with Mansun, and now more recently as a solo artist with his top 20 charting album ‘Spooky Action’, Paul Draper’s talent precedes him. As well as showing that his songwriting prowess is as strong as ever, Draper’s solo album also proved that the legion of Mansun fans who started the annual Mansun Convention and an online petition for Paul to write a new album following the band’s split in 2003 are still just as engaged in 2017.

      This limited edition 7" features two of the fan favourites from ‘Spooky Action’ and is pressed on silver coloured vinyl.

      “A growling electro-rock odyssey built on a grand scale. This has an impressive heft” - 8/10 UNCUT
