about

A couple of Aeons ago I was just plain old Graeme Smith, Sure, I had already explored vocal harmony by canoe with the Graetones, even written and performed for bands such as The Duckworths, The Mandibles, Count Bobo (and the Bullion)...

Then one sultry morning I was engulfed in an orange cloud of gamma-rays in the kitchen. I lay down and found myself in my old dream-canoe, idling down weird waters under the eaves of a verdant forest. Strange glimmers in the orange fog along the banks of the Lagoon, and beguiling voices raised in song....
I knew in that instant that I must bring the music back to King George, that it would surely aid the Empire.

I contacted Drezz, feeling sure that he would be able to withstand the rays and capture the songs from the Haunted Lagoon. He regretfully informed me of the Kings death and the Empire's decline and that if he was to help me he would need the use of a magnetic pineapple. Of course I agreed to his terms and we set about the task.
We used 8-track tape and vintage equipment and over a short space of time we had Dubi Dolczek & the Haunted Lagoon recorded.

I would like to say something of the recording methods used by these 'tropical' phantoms. 'Ghosts of course can't use stereos' one of the village elders confided to us one night 'If we wish to preserve a composition we turn it into a sort of pearl and drop it into the Lagoon. That way we can all hear it.' We spent some time diving for archives, and have presented a number of these ancient songs herein.
