The Odd Couple

Isobel Campbell , formerly  singer and cellist with  the Scottish indie favourites Belle and Sebastian and Mark Lanegan from Queens of the Stone Age must rank as one of music's oddest couples.
And the strange thing is that it works.
They are now three albums into their collaboration starting with the Ballad of the Broken Seas from 2006 followed by Sunday at Devil Dirt in 2008 then Hawk in 2010 whilst at the same time carrying on with their individual careers.
This is from Ballad of the Broken Seas with my library burn having just been replaced by the original at a cost of £1 from a Crieff Charity Shop.
Money well spent!

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan - (Do You Wanna) Come Walk With Me?


  1. Really good live but absolutely no stage banter. Saw them quite a few times. The first couple of times I saw her tour this Eugene Kelly was doing the Mark Lanegan but and not too badly.

    They did a cracker of a version of Nancy & Lee's Sand. Come to think of it they are a bit like a later day Nancy and Lee.

  2. I can download! Broadband connected. Currently enjoying She took a lot of pills and died. Fantastic!
