Paul Draper was the frontman of Mansun - one of the most iconic bands of the late ’90s. Over the course of three albums (a fourth issued posthumously), they achieved something unique – after fostering a fervent cult following, they managed to maintain critical and commercial success with a series of intensely radio friendly yet increasingly experimental records. Off the back of their biggest radio record, Mansun imploded in 2003 and Paul all but disappeared from view until the release of his debut solo album Spooky Action in 2017.
His sophomore album, Cult Leader Tactics, is set for release by KScope on January 28th 2022. Co-produced by Paul 'P-Dub' Walton (Massive Attack, The Cure, Bjork), Cult Leader Tactics is a satire about the genre of self-help manuals, detailing how to get to the top of your profession or how to generally get on in life by acting in a Machiavellian manner and employing dirty tricks - or "Cult Leader Tactics" - to achieve your life goals.
