"It's like Nick Cave and Tom Waits build a time machine and end up at a house party in the late 1700s. Leonard Cohen is there, at fisticuffs with Bono Swagger. Beethoven and Shelley are drinking poppy-milk and duelling at Chess, whilst Dylan is playing electric-lute and grinning maniacally in the corner. Tori Amos is there too, dancing about, pretending to be a pirate captain - ....with guitars."
"Urgent. Brooding with secret triumphs and celebrated loss. Double ironic tragi-rock at it's best. I hope to do a record with him one day."
"Daniel has been stealing riffs from me for years. I'm going to have to hit him with this flower."
"I was going to change my name to Mr Mojo Rising, but now I'm not so sure." "
The Dandy Løve Band is a sometimes ensemple of musicians, casual guests, algorithms, recycled takes from the ghosts of projects past, inanimate vibration-making objects, bird-life, sonic signatures, false-alarm inspirations, starts, stops and many a wide-eyed dream; orchestrated without warning by Daniel Grin.
All tracks written, produced, performed, mixed, lost, found, quantised, groove un-quantised, lamented over, positively-charged, caged, abandoned, defenestrated, sorely missed, found, tearfully re-united with, sent to ground, avenged, made-merry, wished on and finally freed by Daniel Grin with The Dandy Løve Band.
The Dandy Løve Band are: Rosencrantz, Gildernstern, Wolfie, Hawkeye Pierce, Hey-ho Rowley, Mr Zebra, Major Charles Emerson Winchester III, the distant offspring of Ella Fitzgerald's cat, a former mayor of Tupelo, and "ghost in the tambourine".
