ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"..a terse articulation of the devil's music"
John Fleming (Irish Times)

"one of the great survivors of irish rock 'n' roll "
Olaf Tyranasen (Hot Press)

Eamonn Dowd paid his dues playing with long forgotten bands throughout the 1980's and early 90's in his native Ireland. In '94 he wrote the music for a play based on the writings of Patrick Kavanagh which had a two week run at Dublin Castle. In '95 The Ormond Multi Media Centre hosted a major retrospective of his paintings and drawings spanning fifteen years of new expressionist / outsider art. After guesting on an LP by Blink and an award winning single by Hyper Borea, he spent most of '96 with ex Beautiful South singer Briana Corrigan ( writing, recording and touring the UK) Afterwards he formed The Racketeers and embarked on a never ending adventure bringing his fiery brand of country / americana / rock 'n' roll to audiences far and wide, releasing nine albums along the way. In recent years Dowd has toured (with The Racketeers & solo) throughout Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, Finland, Estonia, Austria, Switzerland, Czech, east coast USA and Canada.

After years of self-releasing material, "Silver & Dust" (2006) came out on hip German indie label Cannery Row Records. It was recorded by Paul Thomas who lists Phil Lynott, Whipping Boy, Horslips, U2 and The Dubliners amongst his clients. "Mansions Of Gold" (2009) was produced by Les Keye, bass player since 2006. Longtime band member Chris Teusner played drums on the record. Later that same year, "Two Way Mirror" - a collection of lost tracks and out-takes came out on Cheapskate. Recently three limited edition 7inch lathe-cut 45's have been added to the catalogue and even a cassette album, "Red Tape - Dead Formats Volume 1".

February 2013 saw the release of a solo album "Things Aren't The Way They Used To Be" followed swiftly (five months later) by "Wicked Wind Coming" a limited edition CD with a hand stamped wax sealed cover. In 2014 " Down A Hundred Crooked Roads" was released, a collection of songs recorded with Swedish band The Last Souls as well as a few with The Racketeers and a duet with Belgian singer Ingrid Veerman.

Al Cowan is now Racketeers drummer, having previously played occasional gigs in Switzerland and Ireland. Al (a respected and in-demand engineer) had recorded a lot of early material in '96 / '97, including most of By Hook Or By Crook at his Sonic Recording Studios in Dublin. Clarence Winter played pedal steel on over 20 shows in the last couple of years while Ken Whelan featured on keyboards and accordion on recent Irish dates.
With a busy tour schedule Eamonn is still paying his dues.
