Drunk Country was an experiment in dishevelment

the idea was simple: keep the mistakes in & use rhythm only as a guide

"These fine blokes out of Cardiff make me smile. With a humble and simplistic attitude they have managed to charm the pants off of me... a thoughtful and enchanting record." — Basement Songs, WNYU

"Regular readers know that DC has an open invitation here: Anything they create will be posted here. Period. I love their unique brand of oddly named instrumentals. They need to be hired to score a Sofia Coppolla western. Or maybe a Lindsey Lohan high school hijinx comedy. That would be interesting." — Berkeley Place

these demos were supported from the very beginning by berkeleyplaceblog.com &, amazingly, 6years later, Ekko still has a link to our Myspace page on his blog — unconditional thank you verys for the unwavering / curious support

some of these demos were played on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Wales, 6Music, WMPG, WNYU, Channel 4 Radio (Slash Music) & Channel 4 TV
