The debut solo album from JACK COOPER of ULTIMATE PAINTING. A beautifully melancholic song cycle about life in England's "Las Vegas of the North",Blackpool and the desolate Fylde Coast.

"Everyone's from somewhere," says Jack. "I don't think it's particularly important people know this album is about Blackpool, but I think everyone can empathise with the themes on the record." Evoking the delicate but often widescreen musicality of Bill Fay and the abstract lyricism of the late 60s Scott Walker records, as well as the more experimental sounds of John Cale and Robert Wyatt, Sandgrown is a collection of tranquil ballads that evoke feelings of nostalgia and re-evaluation about where you come from, wherever that may be.
