    Default Duke Special anyone?

    He's getting pretty big in the UK and selling out tours in Europe so go on the DUKE. I strongly suggest you check this man out. Amazing!

    Using cheese graters, wardrobe doors, pianos, harps, brass, strings and an old gramophone to record the twelve-track debut, Adventures in Gramophone is truly a musical spectacular. Duke Special is one of a kind, a unique and talented young Belfast man whose bruised romanticism and soft Northern tinged vocals are at sharp juxtaposition with his wild dreadlocks, smudged eyeliner and unfeasibly wide trousers.

    On stage, Duke Special explodes into musical mayhem the battered old trademark gramophone wheezes, huge cymbals clash, egg whisks and cheese graters break free from the kitchen, a stumpf fiddle screeches and the crushed velvet covered piano thumps and tinks in unison but its the very core of the songs, his heartfelt, passionate poems, that will remain in your head long after the lights have gone down.

    I downloaded their mini-album (When The Bear Bytes) the other week, and I must say it is good.

    And you've been so busy lately
    that you haven't found the time
    To open up your mind
    And watch the world spinning gently out of time
