Throughout his life Rory Gallagher was a great fan of the crime noir genre and much of his work was inspired by the characters and themes found in the cult detective novels of authors such as Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. Examples of Rory’s best crime inspired material are central to the ‘Kickback City’ album, providing the soundtrack to Ian Rankin’s newly created novella ‘The Lie Factory’. Rory’s lyrics and song titles are cleverly woven in to the story. The unique album ‘Kickback City’ is completed by the stunning visuals created by illustrator Timothy Truman (DC Comics / First Comics). Also a life-long Rory Gallagher fan, the musician, writer and illustrator has been working in the graphic novel industry since the 80’s and is internationally known for his art design for the Grateful Dead.
