Album Notes
DugNAliss is (are?) a studio-based Pop Band from the Midwest specializing in …
… just about everything.

Says Dug, “It’s not exactly a secret that we’re not the youngest indie group around. Let’s just say that we’re too old for American Idol. (Thank God).”

“When we were growing up, there wasn’t the sort of separation of styles on the radio and in the charts that exists today. Everything was just sort of thrown together, and we really loved it that way. We want to give people that sort of well-rounded musical diet again. We try to take the best elements of just about every style that’s ever existed.”

Rich and Famous (If They Wanted) does just that, with an array of originals covering Rock, Folk, Electronic R&B, Country, Gospel, and what was once called “Middle of the Road” but now has that suspect epithet, “Easy Listening”. There’s even a bit of music concréte at the end (Think Beatles’ Revolution #9, but with a bit more of a point.) The lyrics are smart, clever, but generally steer clear of coy. “Paul Simon is my hero, lyrically,” observes Dug. The influence shows.

The collection is rounded out with updated covers of songs from the Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, Patsy Cline, and Little Richard. Those covers are a great starting place for appreciating how DugNAliss respect the styles, are thoroughly steeped in the traditions, and yet, in every case, have something fresh and worthwhile to add.

“The 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, now, tomorrow… There are always great stylistic ideas out there,” asserts Aliss. “We don’t treat the old stuff like museum pieces. No moldy oldies. The point is to keep it all fresh and alive, and add your own perspective. A good song is a good song. DugNAliss is all about good songs.” Tongue-in-cheek album cover aside, one listen to Rich and Famous confirms that, indeed, they are.
