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!
