Down and Dirty


Rock Covers


Long time collaborators Roy Baker and Simon Rhodes have been trying to pull together a stable line-up of musicians under the DOWN AND DIRTY banner for some years. Plenty of players coming and going but the band never settling; Never quite becoming 'a band'.

Eventually, Simon made contact with Ken Wynne, a local prog' rock bassist (but keep that to yourself - prog' rock is evil, you know), who it turned out lived just around the corner and shortly after, Simon stumbled upon guitarist/guitar synthesist Brian Barnes, both guys in short succession. Suddenly there was the stability the two originators were after.

The four are now busily and rapidly pulling songs together for a set of fun and hopefully unusual songs; trying to find those popular but rarely heard tracks mixed in with a few of the more commonly heard fare by a varied array of artists drawn from the last forty years.

Time will tell, but the plan is to have a selection of songs that isn't dominated by the same old staples that you can hear any night of the week, in any pub in any town. And the list is starting to get extensive!!!
