Follow The Band’s Playlist on Spotify

Some of you may have noticed that the band were signed to Proper Music (propermusic.com) late last year and the album Fingers Pointing At The Moon is being recommended to rock fans everywhere by Planet Rock (https://www.planetrock.com/) for a couple of weeks on air. For new listeners, Proper and Planet Rock challenged the guys to come up with their individual playlists to give an insight into influences and fav tracks. Well we got a lot of music back and for starters we are going to list them – it could be the start of some interesting dialogue with those that follow dBL – have a look, have a listen and then let us know what you think!

Chris Lapsa on the EMS VCS3…

This is really a bit of history. It belonged to John Baker of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and was used in countless numbers of old BBC productions including Dr.Who. It’s a classic old synth and the forerunner of the Synthi AKS which Pink Floyd used in “On The Run”, although it has different characteristics one being that it did not originally come with a keyboard and has the wonderfully playful joystick to mix effects and settings.

Sometimes known as The Cricklewood I played this on It Only Takes A Second. The idea of that track is to provide a shocking departure or interlude from the main melodic and lyrical theme of the album – mortality – the track is meant to jar the listeners ear with its chaotic vocals and bubbling, pounding volcanic synths, evoking the same emotions of shock, anxiety and panic when the realisation of our own mortality blasts to the surface for example, when a loved one dies, or we are in a serious accident, or any other truly shocking human happening. We are suddenly fully awake and aware of our feelings. The mirror of the track is imagining what actually occurs in the mind of someone in the final seconds before committing an act of true harm, the final splintering crack inside their minds.

Joe Dworniak on the 1962 Fender Jazz Bass

Greg Bone on the Gibson 1959 reissue R9 that he played on Fingers Pointing At The Moon…

In the shadow of prayer…

Neves – 1073’s to full use on the new album……
