There are certain points in everyone’s life when they must take stock: weigh-up their impact on the world, consider their contribution to society and look back on those they left in their wake. Fortunately for Baxter Dury these moments of self-reflection not only tend to manifest themselves in tragicomic snapshots, but happily they coincide with making records.

Returning with his fourth life ledger - or new album ‘It’s A Pleasure’ if you prefer - a series of conflicted emotions, stark drum beats, comic vignettes and strung out synths come together to present one man’s wry take on the battle with existence. It’s metaphysics meets morose disco. It’s marvellous.

Following on from Dury’s acclaimed 2010 album Happy Soup, ‘It’s A Pleasure’ has been worked on in the world’s best equipped studios in cities including Paris and New York -also loads of it ended up being recorded in Dury’s living room. “It was a massive exhaustive exercise in how to waste money, tears and emotions,” half jokes Dury of the album’s creation, which saw him principally work alongside guitarist friend Mike Moore, although members of Babyshambles also contributed to the process before Arcade Fire and Arctic Monkeys collaborator Craig Silvey mixed it. “If I had a bit more foresight and intelligence it could have been a lot more comfortable. It’s an enormously expensive fuck up in many ways, but fun though. I enjoyed it!”

Having broken in a new band earlier in the summer with a festival appearance that somehow saw Dury and his group entangled with the head of a swingers organisation, a famous DJ and the damage of a priceless European chateaux (a real life experience sure to fuel a future song), after his prolonged studio experiences the singer-songwriter is keen to get his “shit Chiswick party that’s trying to emulate New York” back on the road. “It’s fun to play live this one, you can get your head in. I can’t wait to go play it,” he declares. Indeed for all the misjudgement and misplaced ambition, ultimately Dury’s look at life’s mishaps is a hopeful and affirming exercise. Yes it’s in the gutter by its own hand, but the stars are still visible… just. “It’s optimistic still, but I’ve changed the setting from my last album,” says Dury summing up. “Happy Soup, was more sun-kissed, it was about innocent failure. This one is a little darker. A different mind-set, I think, a starker record. It’s darker in its nature, it’s icier but it’s the same old bollocks! It’s from the same deli counter… actually is it? It’s more like trying to eat frozen chicken.” It’s a chilly pleasure, but one that will warm your heart…
