Dave Shannon

A thinking person's music from the cannon of one of Scotlands home grown talents. This CD weaves an eclectic mix of fine musical and lyrical content on themes of love, war and peace. Songs such as 'Friendly Fire' and 'Lost Tribes' stand alongside any anti-war song of note, listen up to their thought provoking political content. Wallow in the moody urban vibe of 'Sauchiehall Street' or 'Sometimes', and for sweet love content, groove with 'Yesterday Eyes', 'Angel' and 'One Way Street'. For the discerning ear 'dubldunt is an altogether must have CD to treasure. (katy Caldwell)

This collection of songs was recorded in a cold Glasgow during the winter 2003-04. The ingredients were a warm fire, patience, perseverence, madness, whisky and passion: Equipment used; Boss 10 track digital machine, 2 old acoustic guitars; 3 congas, dodgy drums, cheap mikes; a battered bass, iffy leads, boggin' moothies and an all-star confusion of friends and associates. The end result is somewhere between the sublime and ridiculous but never boring. To listen to mp3's click on the relevant active track.
