Duke Raoul cover Baker Street

With the recent passing of Gerry Rafferty I thought I’d finish the cover of Baker Street that I’ve been working on for a while. I think the infamous sax solo (nothing to do with Bob Holness) often overshadows the downbeat melancholy of the rest of the song and wanted to redress the balance… all with the greatest respect to Mr Rafferty of course.

Erland & the Carnival w/Duke Raoul.

Worth a mention is the upcoming gig from Erland & the Carnival at Brighton Hope this thursday (sept 30th). Duke Raoul are supporting and we’re reliably informed that tickets are running very low. As far as we’re aware you can still get a few here though as well as the usual Brighton haunts.

The much-hyped Erland & the Carnival conjure up elements of folk, indie and afrobeat, with more than a touch of The Coral.

This song features backing vocals from Gazelle Twin herself. We released it as a free download single a little while ago here. The artwork was provided by the incredibly talented Sarai Vardi.
