DEF LEPPARD Singer JOE ELLIOTT's DOWN 'N' OUTZ: 'The Further Adventures Of' Album Samples (на англ.)

On April 22, DOWN 'N' OUTZ released a brand new album "The Further Adventures Of…", which is the third instalment of the project fronted by DEF LEPPARD's lead singer Joe Elliott, and features tracks connected to MOTT THE HOOPLE.


Audio samples of all the tracks that appear on the CD can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

The project was born in 2009 when MOTT THE HOOPLE reformed and asked longtime friend and fan Elliott to get involved. Joe formed the DOWN 'N' OUTZ with THE QUIREBOYS' Paul Guerin (guitar), Guy Griffin (guitar) and Keith Weir (keyboards), plus Phil Martin (drums). Together they looked to bring songs by MOTT THE HOOPLE and spin-off projects of MOTT, IAN HUNTER and BRITISH LIONS to a wider audience.



In 2009 DOWN 'N' OUTZ supported MOTT THE HOOPLE at one of the band's five Hammersmith Apollo shows, which garnered much interest with fans. The fan demand eventually led to the bandlooking to create an album. 2011 saw the release of the critically acclaimed debut "My Re-Generation" through Bludgeon Riffola via Mailboat Records (Joe Perry, Walter Becker, Chris Isaak, Jeff Bridges). "My Re-Generation" included the singles "England Rocks" and "Overnight Angels" that reached No. 4 and No. 1, respectively, on the U.S. Mediabase rock chart — keeping Eric Clapton's new single off the top of the chart for two weeks. The band then released a live DVD taken from those initial shows called "Live At Hammersmith Apollo".



DOWN 'N' OUTZ' new album, "The Further Adventures Of…", picks up where the live DVD left off and features the driving groove of album opener — and first single — "Rock And Roll Queen". The collection also includes the good time of rock 'n' roll tune "One Of The Boys", and ballad "The Journey", plus the drum-heavy song "Violence". The album was produced by Joe Elliott with co-production by Ronan McHugh. It was recorded at Joe Elliott's own studio Joe's Garage.

Elliott says: These songs make up a huge portion of who I am and I feel incredibly privileged to have been able to record them and hopefully give them a new lease of life, which, quite frankly, is long overdue."


Morgan Fisher (keyboardist MOTT THE HOOPLE 1973/1974 and also MOTT and BRITISH LIONS) expresses: "It's like Joe and the boys have taken some vintage films and slapped them onto a big, bright Technicolor screen. A great, in-your-face new way to experience some of MOTT's finest songs!"

Ian Hunter says: "I'm blown away by these recordings. The solo by Paul Guerin on 'The Journey' is one of the best I've heard. These songs really suit Joe's voice also. It's a whole different side to him and the project gets my approval!"


After supporting MOTT THE HOOPLE in 2009, DOWN 'N' OUTZ played the main stage of inaugural High Voltage festival at Victoria Park, London during the summer of 2010. Following this memorable performance, they toured the U.K. as main support to Paul Rodgers in 2011. The band is currently working on live dates for 2014/2015.

Ничто не вызывает с такой силой прошлого, как музыка; она достигает большего: когда она вызывает его, кажется, будто оно само проходит перед нами, окутанное, подобно теням тех, кто дорог нам, таинственным и печальным покровом.
