Damien Hirst — Ali in the Jungle - 7" - The Hours

Released 13/11/06

Ali in the Jungle is the debut single from The Hours. The Hours are Anthony Genn and Martin Slattery. Damien Hirst designed the artwork for the single and the band’s debut album Narcissus Road, see www.thehours.co.uk.

The debut single from The Hours, Ali in the Jungle was both Jo Whiley’s and Zane Lowe’s Single Of The Week - and was also track of the month in the Observer Music Monthly.

“Possibly the only new band in Britain who can call on Damien Hirst as a sleeve designer.  They relive Muhammad Ali’s rumble in the jungle with pure-throated vocals and hook-filled guitars that leave you reeling on the ropes – in a good way.”  NME

Track Listing: Ali In The Jungle, Nothing.

Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst was born in Bristol in 1965. He first came to public attention in 1988 when he conceived and curated ‘Freeze’, an exhibition of his own work and that of his contemporaries at Goldsmiths college, staged in a disused London warehouse. Since this time Hirst has become widely recognised as one of the most influential artists of his generation.

Through a varied practise of installation, sculpture, painting and drawing Hirst has sought to explore the complex relationship between art, life and death. Alongside over 80 solo exhibitions he has worked on numerous curatorial projects. In 2008, Hirst took the unprecedented step of bypassing gallery involvement in selling 244 new works at a Sotheby’s, London auction entitled ‘Beautiful Inside My Head Forever’.

Hirst was awarded the Turner Prize in 1995 and his contribution to British art over the last two and a half decades has been acknowledged in a major solo retrospective exhibited at Tate Modern, London. He lives in Devon and has studios in Gloucester and London.
