The Dinosaurs

Postby George Geddes » Mon Feb 16, 2015 12:46 pm

The Dinosaurs are Ken Irving (guitar, bass guitar, guitar synthesiser, drum programming) and George Geddes (guitar, bass guitar, twelve-string guitar, six-string bass). We set out to record some material in Ken's home studio (the band name came later). Rather than stick to the familiar Shadows tracks, we decided to revive some other classic instrumental sounds of the late 50s and early 60s ... The FleeRekkers, The Tornados, John Barry Seven, The Dakotas, The Outlaws, The Hunters and so on.

So far we have twelve such tracks, and along with more recent numbers by Ricky King and Jeff Lynne plus a Ken Irving original we've put them together on CD.

It has been highly enjoyable putting the tracks together, and we've already got ideas for volume 2!

I'll try and post a sample track in a few days, John. The CD got a nice review in NGD so we're chuffed with that!
