DL Burdon's Countdown Session is to be released this week as a digital download and it's a beaut! Our friends at Apathy & Exhaustion wrote a great piece on it and showcased the release.
“At the end of 2019, DL Burdon (Leatherface, Former Cell Mates, Anchor Bends) returned to his home town Sunderland to play a sold-out Christmas gig at one of Sunderland’s oldest pubs, The Ship Isis, situated just opposite the City’s former site of the famous Vaux Brewery, by the River Wear. The gig sold out quick-smart, and a raucous, boozy good old time was had by all.
The following day, Davey and Little Rocket Records label owner, Graeme Philliskirk (Leatherface, Medictation) met at the infamous Bunker (where Little rocket Records HQ is based), which is the home of all things punk rock and musical within Sunderland’s rich cultural tapestry to this day. Taking the perhaps perilous decision to take the “hair of the dog” approach to easing their heavy heads, the pair partook of a few light whiskeys.
