Dream Machine + Dean James and the Black Dogs on Saturday 13th June 2020

The Dream Machine are an alternative Psychedelic Dub Rock band from London which includes fabulous musicians from some amazing psych rock bands such as, Ozric Tentacles, Thunderdogs, Damidge and ZubZub.

It was formed by ex-Ozric Tentacles’ Jon le Champignon on flute, G-Delic from the Thunderdogs on bass, ZubZub’s Alex Pym on guitar and Theo Buckingham on drums.

Dream Machine’s latest musical offering, their third album, Temple of Dreams is produced by Gaudi (Orb, Deep Forest, Lee Scratch Perry and more)

Two times HMMA (Hollywood Music and Media Awards) nominee, Dean James and the Black Dogs are a hard-hitting dirty Blues-Rock outfit from the UK. They have a very diverse range of influences, from the great singer songwriters of Billy Joel and Damien Rice to the blues legends of John Lee Hooker and seasick Steve. When Dean James was a teenager he was overwhelmed by Nirvana and cites Kurt Cobain as his main inspiration. Think of the Black Dogs as Blunge (Blues Grunge) with a little bit of acoustic tenderness thrown into the mix.

Dean played for many years in covers bands in the UK before leaving that circuit to concentrate on his original material. He was soon signed by local indie label ‘Forgotten City Records’ where he recorded his debut album ‘Pure’. Pure caught the attention of newly formed GEM records UK and was signed to the label to produce ‘Truth’.

Dean James may hail from the north of England, but his music sounds as if it originated in America’s deep south, thanks to its rootsy flourishes and swampy tinges of filtered R&B. On his striking new album, the appropriately titled ‘Truth’, James - accompanied by his band the Black Dogs - makes a mighty impression courtesy of a dark and deliberate sound that's flush with both angst and invective. Songs such as ‘Talking To God’, ‘Higher’, ‘Wait For You’ and ‘Change Me’ in particular show a driving determination that can seem intimidating at times, but remain consistently absorbing throughout. James and company parlay this formidable impression instantly from the outset, beginning the album’s initial offering ‘Hollywood’ and a repeated refrain that commands immediate attention. Every track that follows is similarly striking, whether it’s the Doors-like delivery of ‘Sleazy’ or the dimly lit ambiance of ‘Another Way’.
