Gosh it's Josh out on the road after an age

The inimitable Josh T. Pearson has his sights set on a Sheffield return.

He will take his long-awaited debut solo album, the Berlin-recorded Last Of The Country Gentlemen, on the road this spring to coincide with the release.

Originally from Texas, Josh formed the short-lived Lift To Experience, who released one sprawling masterpiece in 2001, The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads, before splitting soon after.

The late John Peel loved them so much he had them record three sessions in five months but since then Josh has spent years in the wilderness.

His one studio recording, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, was a split single with the Dirty Three.

He also appeared on the Mercury-nominated Bat For Lashes album Fur And Gold.

He starts his tour at Sheffield's Queens Social Club on March 24.
