this third solo album by Andy Bell (Erasure) commands a great deal of our respect. performing as alter-ego Torsten, bell inhabits the character of a gender-fluid, semi-immortal who, having loved and lost many during an unnaturally elongated life, is left haunted by his lifetime of bittersweet memories. this is a unique pop / musical theatre collaboration between the Erasure singer, poet/playwright Barney Ashton-Bullock and musician Christopher Frost. This album, three years in the making, is structured around four separate themed ‘Acts’ which deal with different aspects of both Torsten’s life story and his self-realisation; each song designed as if a postcard insight into a particular hot-spot of memory.
