Recommended Posts

hey guys

this week at the dirty hearts club....

we have the wry wit and songwriting skills of Glasgows DUMB INSTRUMENT and the equally skillful playing/songwriting talentthat is Steve from STANLEY plaing a rare solo set.

heres the spiel....

DUMB INSTRUMENT

11.15pm - 11.45pm

Dumb Instrument is the brainchild of composer and lyricist Tom Murray and are impossible to pigeonhole into one particular genre although "Jakey rock" would be a decent attempt. Its "all about the lyrics" (Daily Record 16/12/05) with Dumb Instrument and these are enriched with simple yet poignant accompaniment from piano, fiddle and bass.

The songs are tinged with melancholy, like life, but are by no means downbeat because they often have a comedy twist. The band formed immediately prior to the May 2006 T break showcase event at Edinburgh's Liquid room and earned great reviews being described as "a breath of fresh air" (Fiona Reid) by T break journalists.

Since then the band has appeared at Glasgow's Classic Grand venue as part of BBC2's The Music Show battle of the bands. Since being a featured artist at King Tut's 'Your Sound' in December 2006 the band has appeared at the venue supporting Unkle Bob and are pleased to announce their return to the venue in May of 2007 supporting renowned folk star Rory Mcleod.

The band were fortunate enough to be signed by Hackpen Records (www.hackpenrecords.co.uk) in Dec of 2006 and released their first single 'Songs Ya Bass Vol I' on March 22nd with their debut album to follow in early summer.
