2017 release. The Sirens of Titan are the musical incarnation of author, editor and poet John-Paul Pryor, whose debut novel Spectacles was praised by Dazed & Confused magazine as "A dreamlike vision of a lawless dystopian future", drawing comparison to works of other underground outsiders, such as Jean Genet. Lyrically, Apocalypse Sessions contains the hallmarks of melancholia, desire and transgression that underpins all John-Paul's work, inviting the listener into a raw, flawed and poetic dreamtime. The entire album was recorded in live session with the producer Andy Strange and John-Paul's long-time musical partners Jez Leather and Sami Salo, know collectively as The Sirens of Titan. The session feel of the debut is intended as a riposte to the over-produced music of the zeitgeist.
