ARJEN ANTHONY LUCASSEN Re-Releases Rare Out Of Print Strange Hobby Album
July 25, 2016, 2 years ago
Strange Hobby was previously released in 1996 without saying who the artist was. It can now be announced it was legendary Dutch prog artist Arjen Anthony Lucassen. Lucassen is the progressive metal/rock songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist and record producer, best known for his long-running progressive opera project, Ayreon.
Strange Hobby has been out of print for over a decade and is now a much sought after collectors item. This edition includes four bonus tracks which have not been available on CD previously.
Of this re-release, Arjen said, “Back in 1996 I had so much fun recording Strange Hobby! It was great to take a break from recording my complex, bombastic Ayreon prog-extravaganzas and blow off some steam blasting out these rocky cover versions of my favourite songs from the sixties. I hope you’ll enjoy listening to this psychedelic blast from the past as much as I enjoyed recording it! Groovy!
This re-release of Strange Hobby, the first on Arjen's own Aluca Music imprint via Cherry Red, is likely to be a big surprise to many of his fans.
