Bob Drake - 13 Songs And A Thing (CD)
Release Date: 12/03/13
A new solo album from Bob Drake is always a pleasure and a shock. In 13 Songs we encounter complex Henry Cow type prog rock, heavy metal chords, Turkish influenced manic acoustic guitar, horror movie soundtrack music, and flashes of old time rock n roll. And that's just the intro! Later on Bob gets mean and dirty with his fingerpickin' guitar, a music full of dead stops and unexpected changes of texture. He occasionally sings in his pure, Yes-like choirboy tones, spitting out twisted lyrics, while guest vocalist Dick Verdult harangues us in mock Spanish.
