May I Light Your Cigarette?

This debut release from the mysterious Herb Diamante will transport you on a naughty journey through his speakeasy of debauchery and sin. These eleven tracks of alcohol, tobacco, and desire are driven by his rich, golden voice atop a psychedelic showroom of sound. Herb Diamante is perhaps the most unique lounge singer around. He sings songs about eggplants, yellow kazoos, and delicate stilettos. Then, he'll 'hail the fish-king' and finish you off with 'a wasp in a jam jar'. The elusive Englishman has finally allowed himself to be documented amidst a career built of legendary 'word of mouth' appearances on both sides of the Atlantic. A long, tragic set of strange circumstances and sporadic insanity has somehow combined to create Herb's extended and sometimes frighteningly vivid hallucinatory universe. However, he remains a hopeless romantic and will forever pursue his difficult and evasive vision.
