ANNOUNCING THE RELEASE OF OLDER WISER HARDER OUR 15 TRACK CD AND DIGITAL LP

OLDER WISER HARDER is an ANGLO-GALLIC collaboration between THIERRY AUDOUSSET and RICHARD EARLS, realised in the HEART OF FRANCE over the past two years and available on Disques Tarés and digitally on Bandcamp; DETAILS BELOW.



WE hope you enjoy the twelve SONGS, plus three brilliant instrumentals by THEIRRY, with A LOT TO SAY about ……. a house of cards …….let the redundant realm of the middle aged man come tumbling down…………… The demise of the BABY BOOMERS is nigh. ………….MEDIA MONSTERS sucking the youth dry, living thru their lives, looking their eyes and selling them THEIR LIES - and rendering us in capable of thinking for ourselves……………………Desire to ‘MAKE IT' literally killing those in the thrall of THE ROCK AND ROLL IDEAL ……… standing alone for what you believe in against the INTELLECTUAL WIND………………………………… Remembering seemingly LIFE AND DEATH desperation in the teenage dance hall……………………….. How shit ALZHEIMER'S is and how carers can be pushed to EXTREMES……….The wisdom of sometimes not showing your hand to protect your own FEELINGS …….. UNDERSTANDING you just can’t get on with everyone…………………….. ANTI-NOSTALGIA - the past wasn’t all fine and dandy and the last thing you want to do is JUMP through the LOOKING GLASS to go back there………………. WHEN WE DIE we leave a part of ourselves behind in the people we KNOW AND LOVE ……………. Everyone is broke at sometimes so DON'T JUDGE ………………..

Richard Earls writes and performs poetry and songs on the UK and Paris spoken word circuit from his Older Wiser Harder collection on subjects as diverse as love, war, family, death and desperation on the dance floor. A musician and songwriter for four decades, he was involved in the mid-80s UK jazz/pop scene (CBS compilation LP, Get Wise and Virgin/Paladin release Pull Me UP). 

Following his conspicuous lack of success as a pop star, he moved to France to bring up his family with his wife, Deby. Years later, a chance encounter with a homeless GI, begging on Market Street, San Francisco provided what the French call a ‘déclic’ which resulted in a flood of poems and songs which would become his Older Wiser Harder collection.

Press accolades include:

“At Frome, he was bordering a well-received realm inhabited by John Cooper Clarke and those rapid fire vers libre readings that were prevalent in beatnik circles in the late 1950s - early 1960s - but with an in-built element peculiar to himself.” Alan Clayson, music journalist, biographer and musician

“.. Richard could be a more eloquent, grown up and infinitely less annoying Mike Skinner meets a pan european John Cooper Clarke infused with the blues or perhaps The Indelicates long lost uncle armed with a harmonica. Decide for yourselves, below … » Andy von Pip, music journalist, the Von Pip Musical Express
