New Dacianos CD: “Gratis?”

Dacianos, Blather’s house band, have put together a new CD, the best one yet. We are selling the CD copy with the excellent artwork by Lars Paalgard. In due course it will be available to download from online stores.
The 7 songs are:
1. Sweet Companion, in which Barry duets with Marie to the sweet background of piano, glockenspiel, metallophone and cellos.
2. Sabina, in which a seriously wonky guitar struggles against an 80s keyboard while 3 Barrys channel the spirit of Anais Nin.
3. Polyxo’s Ghosts, in which Barry bashes away at the piano singing about the death of Helen of Troy while metallphones are bowed, water is splashed, pot lids etc. are banged and cellos weep.
4. Future Times, in which Barry outlines a jaunty murder plot that uses internet dating as a weapon, while synth helicopters come and go from a song based around happy guitar chords with the chorous pedal firmly ‘on’.
5. I Didn’t Hear, moves the album on. Sombre. Tremelo.
6. Lighthouse Beam, in which Barry speaks into a microcassette about Wandsworth Park, Marie sings again and the harmonium breathes.
7. Ebbing Tide, two relentless chords, metallophone melody and we wonder what price we are.
3 euro including post and packaging at the Blather Store, where there is also an mp3 you can listen to.

Barry Kavanagh writes fiction, and has made music, formerly with Dacianos and presently with the forthcoming "voodoo project".
