Biography

David McAlmont is most famous as part of the duo McAlmont and Butler who’s hit ‘Yes’ reached the UK top 10. David’s career in music pre-dated this hit by a number of years. First he was part of the ‘indie’ band ‘Thieves’ another duo consisting of McAlmont and Saul Freeman. They were touted by NME as an important new emerging act particularly because of the amazing voice of McAlmont and his flamboyant extravagant behaviour and appearance. David and Saul released the single ‘Unworthy’ during 1993 but then subsequently fell out during the completion of the debut album. David was continued to be signed as a solo artist and the album was released as ‘McAlmont’. The album spawned a further single ‘Either’ in 1995. The album did not sell well although it did raise David’s profile mainly in the ‘indie’ music press. The album is an ambient wash of delicate melodies, dreamy guitar and David’s falsetto voice. It contains an interesting cover of a Joni Mitchell song ‘Conversation’ - an artist whom McAlmont has acknowledged as a major influence.

Suede were a very notorious band during the early 90’s particularly during their first eponymous album. The signature sound of Suede was thanks to the guitar work of Bernard Butler. Bernard fell out with the band members and the producer of the first two Suede albums. He walked away from the band and later hooked up with David McAlmont. Initially they were only going to ‘try out’ in the studio. The session produced a number of songs which became part of the ‘Yes EPs’.
