The way Dan Lyons delivers ‘Think Black Duke’, it is that bright day of days that is to be. A walk with the friendly faces of your present, Dan’s vibrant psyche-pop vocals contain the formula for enjoyment and sharing of it with the ones you love to hang out with.
Dan said: “It’s a three chord ditty in the style of lots of my favourite bands… It’s about a guy who’s out of control hedonistic, insisting that he’s the king of rock ’n’ roll and trying to pull his lover down with him into the abyss. His conscience gets the better of him and he eventually gives up and decides that she’s better off just hanging out with her friends”.
Perhaps better known as the drummer for bands like Fat White Family and Phobophobes, Dan moved to Margate from London in order to forge a solo career, that’s seen him enjoy radio support from Steve Lamacq, Cerys Matthews, Tom Ravenscroft & Chris Hawkins on BBC 6Music, John Kennedy on Radio X and strong rotation on various Amazing Radio shows.
Dan holds a distinct propriety with the emotive angsts of it all. Let’s shake those chips off those shoulders.
