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!
