Background story: Eddie Mooney and the Grave – song by song: No.10: „Down The Drain“

Track 10 of 10 of the Eddie Mooney and the Grave ft Mike Rowbottom and Rick Medlock vinyl collection: „Down The Drain“ was recorded in Manchester in February 2020, another brand new song, released along with the vintage tracks on the „Lost 1979 Studio Recordings“ EP on Malte Buhr’s German Still Unbeatable label in March 2020. Another satire on the British political situation it came out just as the world went into lockdown, so the title was somewhat prophetic. The band returned to the original three piece line up with Coventry’s legendary Ricky Medlock on drums, original guitarist Mike Rowbottom on guitar and myself on bass and lead vocals. Ricky did the fantastic drum track without even hearing the track – I told him to drum like the „Friends“ theme!
And soon we shall be recording and gigging again…watch this space!

Background story: Eddie Mooney and the Grave – song by song: No.9: „Dennis Votes“

Track 9 of 10 of the Eddie Mooney and the Grave ft Mike Rowbottom vinyl collection: „Dennis Votes“ was recorded in Manchester in September 2019, a brand new song, released along with the vintage tracks on the „Lost 1978 Demo Tapes“ EP on Malte Buhr’s German Still Unbeatable label in October 2019. The song is a satire on a the stereotypical voter „Dennis“, seen at the end of the promo video clutching his EU Referendum voting card. The video featured original guitarist Mike Rowbottom and myself on bass and lead vocals. There wasn’t an actual drummer on the track as such. Instead the drums were sampled from the Damned’s „New Rose“ and „Hold Tight“ by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich!

Background story: Eddie Mooney and the Grave – song by song: No.8: „Sweaty Socks“

Track 8 of 10 of the Eddie Mooney and the Grave ft Mike Rowbottom vinyl collection: „Sweaty Socks“ was recorded in Manchester in mid 1979 along with other tracks funded by Tony Davidson’s TJM Records as a possible follow up single. Written by Mike Rowbottom, he also took lead vocals on a very commercial track, reminiscent of Slade’s „Cum On Feel The Noize“. Not released in the 70s, it appeared eventually on vinyl on the „Lost Studio Recordings“ EP on Malte Buhr’s German Still Unbeatable label in March 2020. Original drummer Chris Fisher was ill and was replaced on the sessions by American drummer Sebastian Kossak. On guitar and lead vocals was Mike Rowbottom and myself on bass and backing vocals.
