DR CROW proves that those who don't remember Syd Barrett will have to invent the whole thing all over again. It also demonstrates that, over the thirty five-some years they have spent in some of the most dangerous trenches of rock & roll, The Deviants have become frighteningly good at what they do. The driving force behind DR. CROW is the age-long, classic guitar/singer partnership between MICK FARREN and ANDY COLQHOUN. Their song-writing is now at a level where Colqhoun provides the ultimate post-Hendrix power and context to Farren's wasteland visions of TV vacant lots where Shakespeare is trying to cop a dime bag, and urban wolves have made their lair. None of this would be possible, however, without the drums and percussion of the mighty RIC PARNELL, and the masterclass bass of DOUG LUNN, whose rhythm also dominates recent work by brother WAYNE KRAMER. Also in the mix are the additional drums of PHILTHY ANIMAL TAYLOR from the premium days of MOTORHEAD, the saxophones of JACK LANCASTER, and the amazing voice of JOHNETTE NAPOLITANO, late of CONCRETE BLONDE, who duets with Farren on the standout Beefheart/blues classic "You're Gonna Need Somebody On Your Bond".
