Don’t dates in 2012 just seem very far away at the moment? I guess it’s the same amount of notice we get about gigs at other times during the year, but next March seems a lifetime away for whatever reason.
Mark Lanegan is a real survivor, but mostly down to that voice. He’s releasing his first solo album since the 2004 Bubblegum on the 27th of Jan called ‘Blues Funeral’, and he’ll be here in Dublin with his band on the 7th of March. I guess he’s been focusing on his work with the Gutter Twins and other side projects.
I loved his second solo effort ‘Whiskey for the Holy Ghost’, and had very high hopes for him, but the next few releases never reached as high a mark. Still, something to look forward to next March!
