You’ve got to be impressed by this

Posted: September 11th, 2004, by Dave Stockwell

This morning I got the latest release by free-pysch-improv-noise hustlers Davenport, entitled ‘Owl Movement’. To the day, it was recorded but one month earlier – on 11th August 2004. And I had to import it from the USofA.

That’s a one month turnaround time. It’s taken my band 13 whole months between mixing a record and sending it off to the printers, and the damn thing’s not even going to get distributed for at least another month yet. Bastards, I say, Bastards!

Dave Stockwell

David can always be relied on to end his e-mails with one of those 'np: blah blah' things in order to remind us of how much more music he listens to every day than anybody else. His interests include rockin ' out in a major style as guitarist in Souvaris, throwing frisbees from tall buildings "just to see what happens" and simply kickin' back with his bitches in a gold-plated jacuzzi.
