Tuesday, 23rd November 2010

Road Dahl DannyHere at Loose Towers, we've just been tuned into the BBC iPlayer, having a listen to last night's Radio 2 programme on "How Roald Dahl Shaped Pop Music". It's all rather good and well worth a listen.However, the highlight for us is, of course, where Danny (of Danny and The Champions Of The World) talks about Roald Dahl's influence on his band's name and music. It's about 35 minutes in, for those who may want to skip right to it.Listen here.

“there’s always been a sense of a tasteful restraint to the studio albums but unleashed on stage with their raspy vocals and heartland rock and soul, they’re like a power station on steroids.”


“This is a proper old school live album, makes you want to go to a gig”


“songs like This Is Not a Love Song and and Stay True which come at you one after the other; are destined to make ‘new fans’ wonder why these kids aren’t topping the bill at Glastonbury with their magic formula and bittersweet songs.”
