A few months ago my band the Dodge Brothers and I went to the famous Sun Studios in Memphis to record an album. Here's a sneak peek at a radio documentary about the trip.

    The Dodge Brothers need to record an album in prison like Johnny Cash to be truly rock n roll.

    It's not about musicians, it's about men in a room not trusting each other...

    Cannot wait to hear the programme. Radio documentaries are very entertaining. There was an excellent one based on Jeff Buckley last year featuring Chrissie Hind as the narrator which I would highly recommend seeking out

    Having only caught one of the band's local pub gigs and two Brand accompanied silent film shows, I'd say they're probably up to it, but of course we'll have to check it out when it airs next week.

    Given that Mike Hammond teaches Film Studies at So'ton Uni, perhaps they should record an album in an old cinema, either well restored or atmospherically abandoned, they could cover songs with cinematic themes (lord help 'em if they take requests and I'm in the audience -- I'm not sure Lynch's Girl in the Radiator Song, In Heaven could stand up to a skiffle version). That is, if no minimum security prisons are available to grant #1 posted request above.
