Papa November

Real Name:
Stuart Tonge AKA Lord Tonge
The name Papa November comes from a now inactive short-wave radio numbers station that features the voice of a girl repeating the words papa november between blasts of discordant noise. Although only a tenuous link exists between the numbers station and Papa November the band, blasts of short-wave, radio crackle and radio drones permeate Papa November’s music. Papa November as a musical project was started by Stuart Tonge in 1997, who was inspired by an ever increasing vinyl collection, the sonic possibilities presented by a Mac computer and a desire to create his own language in sound. Stuart set to work, enlisting the efforts of Katy Acquaye who wrote the lyrics, sang and co-produced most Papa November releases between 2001 and 2006. Papa November has released music on Static Caravan, Speedowax and Bearos records. Papa November currently concerns itself with creating soundtracks to imaginary distopias.
