Customer Reviews


It's a shame Paul lost his anonymity because of the tabloids. The Fireman was his only outlet to let loose, and the differences between Electric Arguments and Rushes clearly shows this. Rushes is an amazing album created by a man who wanted to simply bring authenticity to his art.

McCartney's Best Solo Album...

In the 90's, Paul McCartney released some exceptionally unique and experimental music - particularly in the classical and electronica genres - between his standard albums. Unfortunately, most of this output was ignored. That's a shame, because he released a lot of good stuff...

As most people now know, "The Fireman" is actually McCartney and producer Youth. The name "Fireman" is a reference from Penny Lane.

Anyways, if you like The Orb and/or Pink Floyd a la "Wish You Were Here", I'd recommend this album. The songs are very ambient, they're mostly electronic instrumentals (except for some spoken words scattered in the mix), and the songs flow together. The songs are mostly variations of the main theme "Watercolor Guitars", and are very relaxing. I think it's his most experimental and strongest album.

One tip: listen to this via headphones. There's a lot going on in the background, and the stereo effects add to the experience...

Thanks for reading!

It's Paul

Very cool stuff from Paul McCartney. The Fireman albums should be located under Paul McCartney's artist page with all his solo and Wings music. They would sell more. Great sounds.


Formed: 1993 in London, England

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

What would seem to be one of the oddest examples of electronica crossover was the Fireman, an ambient project concerning producer and occasional Orb-collaborator Youth plus the dean of British rock, Sir Paul McCartney. In truth however, McCartney had been involved in London's electronic and avant/garde music scene during the mid-'60s -- he even prepared the tape loops and effects for the Beatles' famed "Tomorrow Never Knows," probably the most famous use of musique concrète in history.
