Dixie Fried

Low down, dirty, sleazy Blues Rock

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

Hello world...

We have been out of the public eye this first six months of 2017, only making one rare appearance in April supporting the outstanding Black Cat Bone at the Liquid Rooms. Was a genuine honour to play to a packed room in the beautiful Voodoo Rooms yet again (becoming a habit). If you are available on Friday 23rd June then get along to see their first show at King Tuts Glasgow, you will not be disappointed.

So back to us, we have been publicly quiet but seriously very busy back in the Dixie Fried Cave planning World domination for when our third album is released in just a few months time. Cannot say too much about it just now, as we really want to ensure this wall of sound knocks you off your feet, but I can say that it will be finished this weekend with the last mixing session fast approaching. It is our biggest album to date, with a lot of care and attention going into every detail that we aim to deliver to you, on every level.

In the meantime a few shows, we have announced we are absolutely honoured to be returning for THE THIRD YEAR IN A ROW to Jocktoberfest the first weekend in September. It is one festival that feels so very special to us - as it was the first time we ever had a 6'3" man dressed as a pink flamingo, crowd surfing, while being fully Dixie Fried - good times. And at only £35 a ticket it is a total bargain.

We have more festivals to announce, but waiting for festival to announce full line up before we can do the same...

We are playing a very special local gig on Friday 28th July at our favourite Dreadnought in Bathgate, with the top dollar Palmiros and a joint acoustic gig between our good friends Gary Burns & Ewan Butler.

We can now also announce we will be playing at this years ALMOST BLUE festival in Dundee. We will be playing 7pm in Liquid Envy on South Ward Road. So, all you good people in Tayside will be first to hear a lot of new tracks from the new album as well as some thumping rhythmic blues to kick start the weekend.

More exciting news to follow very very soon
