The Slummers :: Love Of The Amateur


Dan Stuart was de aanvoerder van de legendarische cowpunkers Green On Red. Na een vervroegde pensionering en wat omzwervingen, heeft hij nu een nieuwe band: The Slummers. Hun debuut-cd heet Love Of The Amateur en is een van de meest indrukwekkende platen van het jaar. Wilde gitaarrock, Mott The Hoople-achtige glamrock, The Stones op hun best en natuurlijk rammelende Neil Young/Green On Red rootsrock. Grenzeloos goed.

The founder and bandleader of Green on Red decided in the mid 90s to never have anything to do with Rock n Roll business again, moved from Tucson, Arizona to Madrid the exile of personal choice…and after all has been back for the past few years with not just one but several projects: first a short but all the more impressing reunion with the mentioned Green On red (incl. Chuck Prophet), then the a lot moe elaborate recativation of Danny & Dusty, another very succesful cult band of the 80s with Steve Wynn, and now The Slummers, his newest baby making the first statement with the debut Love Of The Amateur… the Slummers includes besides Dan Stuart, the multi-intrumentalist and producer JD Foster (Calexico, Richard Buckner, Dwight Yoakam) and is responsible for songwriting, guitars and vocals, two Italians Diego Sapignoli on drums and Antonio Gramentieri, compaoser, arrangeur, producer and multiinstrumentalist are the backbone of the band
