Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Years-in-the-making, The Inward City is an album of all new material that was produced by Pere Ubu's David Thomas and is being released on his Hearpen label, with artwork from veteran Cleveland graphic artist John Thompson. For those not familiar with 15-60-75 (usually spoken aloud as The Numbers Band), here's what Allmusic.com had to say about their classic first album Jimmy Bell's Still In Town, which they recently heralded as their 'Album of the Day': 'From the Rolling Stones to the White Stripes, plenty of Rock bands have used the Blues as a jumping off point and messed with the form to make something new, but hardly anyone pushed the music into a more interesting and innovative direction while staying true to its roots as 15-60-75'.
Personnel: Jack Kidney (vocals, guitar, harmonica, tenor saxophone, keyboards); Robert Kidney (vocals, guitar); Terry Hynde (alto saxophone); Frank Casamento (drums).
