12/12/2013 Hello, to all those interested. A great week of work done at the shack on our next album, hopefully to be released sometime in May of next year. John McColgan is working his magic behind the board and the musical vibe is beautiful to be a part of. Some awesome clarinet has been laid down by the talented Mathieu Belanger and we have some other guest musicians lined up in the coming week. The stew is on simmer and tasting real good! Howdy folks, we're back in the Groove Shack with producer John McColgan to work on our new album. From the inner mechanations of Jim's mind (which is truly an enigma) we bring you...'Chickaboodha Stew'. An eclectic stew of songs from varied influences and styles, all written by us of course. A preview of the title track is coming soon! Keep your ears to the DCP machine for more updates.
