Doghouse Dereclicts on Friday 11th October 2019
Dave Budgen and Tim Hutton met when various social and professional connections they each had led to them both being long-term members of the band the Dub Pistols - one of the hardest touring bands in the business, formed by Barry Ashworth out of the Big Beat movement of the 90’s, and still to be found gigging up and down the UK, Europe and beyond most weeks of any given year.
Budgen, a native of York, had been living between Yorkshire and London for years, and Hutton, a long-term resident of London, moved northwards to the Leeds area in 2008, because of a woman.
As a result of this geographical dislocation from the rest of the Dub Pistols, who were all residents of London, the pair found themselves on long drives to gigs every weekend together - and it was this that led to the first Doghouse Derelicts recording, “The Devil Needs To Change”.
Eschewing the Drum & Bass, reggae and ska influences of the DP’s (but retaining a bit of the hip hop) they linked up on a mutual love for Country music and Americana, plus classic English bands like Traffic and the Beatles, and all points in between, so far as the art of a good song goes. This was a marked change from the dance music the pair had separately been involved with for years, through their respective involvements with bands like the Freestylers, Groove Armada and the Prodigy, away from groove based music composed in repetitive blocks, and into the crafting of songs, free of such artistic constraints, and reaching back into their rich historical love of classic bands and songwriting.
More songs followed - “Where I’m From” and “WTF” - and soon their cross-country automotive zig-zagging had become Doghouse Derelicts headquarters, sessions where that week’s studio efforts were endlessly played and pored over, and plans for world domination were hatched. It became clear early on that between them they had landed on a rich vein of joint inspiration to mine, and that they had the history, the ability and the experience to bring it all into being. It seemed as if without looking for it or expecting it, the means had been given to them for creative realisation...Doghouse Derelicts were on a mission.
The first album being complete, the creation of new music - and the hard-touring - continues...
