The Journey is Long, the second album from The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project, was released in April 2012 and features The Jim Jones Revue, Barry Adamson, Warren Ellis (The Dirty Three), Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate) and artists from the first album – on the second release, Cave performs a duet with Harry for a rendition of the song "The Breaking Hands"

Jeffrey Lee Pierce died aged 37 in 1996, a textbook rock casualty to excessive drink and drugs. At least the music he left behind burns: his albums with The Gun Club and their scorched-earth white-boy blues broke open territory that Pixies and The White Stripes (among others) would go on to explore, and solo album Wildweed was disarmingly romantic. He’s still being celebrated – for the art and not the self-destruction, one hopes. Cave also sings City in Pain, this album’s opener, all restrained aggression and controlled desire. Harvey depicts an eerie-lovely St. Mark’s Place, while Barry Adamson, Lydia Lunch and The Jim Jones Revue are also committed believers, fanning the still-smouldering ashes of a legend that yet grows.

Pierce died from a brain haemorrhage in 1996 but left a legacy of unrecorded and unfinished tracks. His band the Gun Club, poured America’s roots music forms into a post-punk blender, releasing a series of iconic albums in the ‘80s that influenced a generation of artists and songwriters. On this compilation, artists spill into each other’s tracks, reinterpreting or finishing Pierce’s lyrical and melodic sketches, while some chose personal favourites from his catalogue. This is not a tribute album but a set of original recordings of brand new material from ‘beyond the grave’
The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions Project.

Warren Ellis, Barry Adamson, Bertrand Cantat & Pascal Humbert, Thalia Zedek & Chris Brokaw, Hugo Race, Dom Beken and Kris & Michelle Needs, sometimes in different combinations. Proceeds from the first volume went to Amnesty International, but Pierce’s sister Jacqui is setting up The Jeffrey Lee Pierce Foundation to help fulfil her brother’s long-standing desire to provide musical instruments for under-privileged kids in LA.
