SHEEP DIP TIP
with DUANE DENISON of
THE JESUS LIZARD
“SHEEP DIP TIP” is a feature where Velvet Sheep icons pass on their top tips for future heroes.
Today’s tipster is a man who is not only my guitar hero, but the first person to appear on the re-invigorated, re-configured Velvet Sheep fanzine. His metallic buzzsaw guitar would scythe over the low-slung taut-skinned rhythm section of Touch & Go’s finest…it’s…
DUANE DENISON of THE JESUS LIZARD, TOMAHAWK & THE DENISON/KIMBALL TRIO
Duane gave me his tip at the same time as his “song for ewe” – the first on this site (here’s a reminder).
Therefore, it’s somewhat tardy and remiss of me, nearly a year later to get this up, but as it turns out, it’s also timely, because Duane’s tip for the top is launching her third album tomorrow…so without further ado (of which there’s been much already) it’s…
Over to Duane:
“I wanted to plug something w/you, Nick. Have you ever heard of a gal named Laura J Martin? She’s from Liverpool, currently in London. She writes her own tunes and sings and plays piano, flute, etc.
LAURA J MARTIN “ON THE NEVER, NEVER” IS AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER HERE:
OR THROUGH ROUGH TRADE:
As well as featuring my man Duane Denison, there’s an all-star band including Lambchop’s Matt Swanson and Tony Crow plus Brian Kotzur from the Silver Jews. As the man says, a proper Nashville sesh! Well worth checking out.
THANKS TO DUANE DENISON. MUCH OBLIGED, SIR.
