NEW STUDIO ALBUM BY STEVE DOWLING AND THE OBLIVIATES

This is our 3rd CD in 4 years ... all new songs recorded here in SW Scotland. We need to print it up, and hope to do it in 6 page digipak format. Cover design by Kevin Witt, layout by Dave Oldham ... and, if we can run to it, an animation by Robert Lindsay. Here's a link to a vid from our last album

.. a few extras on this one (to be called 'Austerity', after the title track), such as brass section (scripted by Tom Wolstenholme), pedal steel - and dare I say it, banjo - by our own Graham Rodger .... plus a bit more time on construction and mixing. So I hope you'll find a lyrical dimension beyond our previous offerings.

I put this band together just as a one of project album ('Urchin') four years ago, but I gave up saying to myself. "ok, one last gig" at least a year ago .... too much fun, and the band just gets better ... canna seem to stop

Risks and challenges

The album and art work are ready to go, the replication and printers identified ... plus we're honourable guys, and always fulfil our obligations. Besides, we don't regard this as an obligation, but something we really want to do!
