Dixie Fried

Low down, dirty, sleazy Blues Rock

Yes !!!!

A bit of positivity, always a good way to start a piece.

  • YES - we have finished our third album
  • YES - we have sent the masters and artwork to manufacturing company 
  • YES - we have booked the digital release date for every platform
  • YES - we are excited about all of this
  • YES - we have had a great summer of festivals, special shows seeing how a lot of the new songs were received.
  • YES - we have already got new brand new tunes on the go, that we will work into shows soon
  • YES - we have a cracking set ready to go for this Sunday's set at the EH6 Festival
  • YES - we have only one more gig (after this weekend) this year, and it is going to be a LONG set at Madhatters, Inverness on Saturday 16th December

A quick run down of the summer highlights...we got to play in some of our very favourite places, Almost Blue Dundee, Dreadnought Bathgate, Belladrum, supporting Miracle Glass Company and last but certainly not least Jocktoberfest at the Black Isle Brewery. A truly special summer, thank you to all who came to see us again, and also those that found their way into the Dixie Fried groove, we hope it is one you will enjoy for a long time.

We are desperate to get this album out as we have some great things happening all over it. We have invested everything we can to make it sound as good as we can. Spent many many hours pouring over every detail, from every note and drum beat, to artwork getting the right tone and angle, to even arguing over the bit rate that digital distributors will accept. We are very emotionally attached to this in making it the very best we can, and hope that transfers over to the music.

Release date will be announced in the next month, as we are busy working out some finer details to make it even more special for those that are with us on our journey to our THIRD ALBUM RELEASE !!!

As we have said right from the start...'Keep it Dixie y'all'

 

Off on, festivals, support slot and album news

Things have been absolutely non-stop these last few weeks, and simply have not found any time to keep you all updated, so trying to quickly rectify that now.

First of all since our last post about having to CANCEL the Almost Blue appearance, we were lucky enough to be added for an hour on the Saturday evening at No. 1 bar. It happened that quick, that sadly only if you followed on our social sites (facebook or twitter) then you would have got to hear about it, sorry. We had a blast and got to play almost 30 minutes of brand new material to an audience of new & old friends. Fingers crossed for a couple of slots next year at this wonderful FREE city centre festival.

During June we were lucky enough to see one of our favourite bands, where they played quite possibly the best gig I have seen this year, North Mississippi Allstars shook the foundations of Oran Mor once again. Anyone that knows our own story may know that we took our band name from the Carl Perkins song from the 50's, but was covered by James Luther Dickinson and became his own and subsequent album of the same name. We have been lucky enough to give both sons of Jim Dickinson (Luther & Cody) copies of our two previous albums.
Couple of gigs coming up, and all our on our events page with more to be added very soon. Easy to say that we cannot wait for them all, from playing with good friends Palmiros and Gary Burns & Ewan Butler at the Dreadnought...to a prime slot at Belladrum of 8.45pm on the Saturday night (there will be some more things to add while we are on site, so stay tuned to the social media sites for quick updates). Then before Jocktoberfest we are supporting Miracle Glass Company. Please check the events page for details as and when we get them.

OK the album is in the can, it is done, no more is being added, no more is being taken away, we are ecstatic about this labour of love and will announce more details of release ASAP. There are a couple of slight things to get with the mix, but we know exactly what they are and being addressed now, once completed the mastering should follow very quickly, so we can get the product actually made. So sadly we have to report it is going to be the turn of the year before it can go out for sale. All we can say it is something we are extremely proud of and I have personally listened to it many more times than any other album in the last 5 years, and I am still not bored with it, more buzzing than anything else.

 

Almost Blues - CANCELLED

Sadly, do to unforeseen circumstances we cannot make the Friday evening gig time. This is the first time we have ever had to pull out of a gig in Dundee (only the second in our history anywhere). 

The venue has known for several days now, and have been very understanding. Even attempted to find us another slot Saturday or Sunday, so far with no luck.

If another slot appears on ANY venue hosting ALMOST BLUES on either Saturday or Sunday, then we still hope to be a part of this amazing weekend of music.

At present we have to say we will not be (as advertised on the official programe) be playing at Liquid Envy 7pm Friday.

Hope to make this up to the good people of Dundee ASAP
