ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Since the mid 90’s Eamonn Dowd and The Racketeers have brought their fiery brand of country / americana / rock 'n' roll to audiences far and wide, releasing eight 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.

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 Studios in Dublin.
Clarence Winter currently guests with the band on pedal steel.

Occasionally Dowd works with Swedish bands The Renegade Two and The Last Souls.

As Hot Press magazine said "There’s something raw and real about Dowd & The Racketeers that’s easy to love."

No Reason, No Rhyme
The best tunes make the hammer in your ear strike pleasingly off the adjacent anvil... The best tunes take a familiar phrase and bend it to their pop purpose… So behold! The rich yet understated riffs and reconstructed reason/rhyme reversal on this track show Eamonn Dowd reaching new songwriting peaks with his Last Souls. A crafted piece of honourable pop rock with perfect guitar and vocals. One can ask for nothing more.
