TRACK LIST

FOURTEENTH ALBUM FROM LONG RUNNING SWEDES THE DIAMOND DOGS 
In april 2010 they all came together again and decided to record a new album, but in a slightly different way. Instead of recording in Stockholm, a studio in north of Sweden (Bergsjo, Halsningland) was booked. It was located very beautifully in a barn close to a lake. It was a totally new experience, the album was recorded live with all instruments including violin and mandolin playing together during the takes. The result is remarkable. “We wanted to capture the true sound of the band” says Sulo. The album kicks off with the folky mod song “April fool” and then their celebration to Grimsby (UK) “Greetings from Isaacs Hill”, the town on the humberside where the band always had their base while touring UK. It’s a warm, close sound through the whole album. “We’ve been listening a lot to The Kinks and the albums they made in the 70’s and I think this is our most honest album so far” Sulo says. Other standout tracks is the beautiful “Don’t turn me away”, the unexpected but very fitting cover of the Smiths single b-side “Please, please, please Let me get what I want”, the pub hymn “Last of the lovers” and “Absolutely No 1” where you almost can hear the ghost of Ronnie Lane in the backing vocals. So here it is.
