    Dustbowl built their own flavor of Americana & Alt. Country-Rock: “Mother – Earth Rock” as they called their new “Great Fandango” album.
    “The Great Fandango” is the new Dustbowl’s album (May 2016). The band tried to made the watertight case for their music as an art form in itself. At a time when all local undeground music was stringently manufactured, these guitar-driven melodies and those Americana-produced whorls of sound proved that untried ground was not only the most fertile stuff, but also the most viable. It defined the past and - for good and ill - gave Dustbowl all its airs and graces.
    “The Great Fandango” soulful music resides not just in its compositional forms and instrumental invention, but in the elaborate vocal harmonies and lyrics that imbue these sad songs with an almost heartbreaking grandeur…it’s their “Mother – Earth Rock” legacy!

lyrics

The Boat

I took my bag and I sat on the ledge
I changed my name and I’m not the same
I’m waiting, money in my hands
I’m on the road again back on the street

I’m gonna sail the darkened sea
I saw my man is waiting for me
I lost my wife I lost my soul
I only have my woollen coat
Take my hand put me down on the boat

We have no time we only have our faith
We must stand together, I’m starting to shake
A man with a big hat trying to push me away
I know that river is gonna be my jail

We are going down, down at the killing noise
We have no time we have no choice
I hear the voice of my lord
I’m praying to bring me home

My hands are tied my shoes are gone
I can’t forget the blood of war
There’s a gun at my back, they drive me to the door
Hey you big strong men, I hate you all but I’m still here
I’m sinking down, I’ll see you all in hell!
