THE LOWDOWN | Droome

A FUNNY PAIR are Droome.

Possibly the most witty, inspired and surprising songs in all of Hertfordshire have come courtesy of the penmanship of Paul Bussey – the gaunt bard of Stevenage – as I’m sure he won’t mind being called too much.

Picaresque stories of adventure, mystery and not-so-mild peril are told with the conviction and passion of a man who has stared death in the face and lived to tell the tale.

Yet rather than burying these songs in grandiose orchestral layers, Paul – together with formidable bass player and partner in crime, Brad Benford – has chosen to present these Gothic sagas in a stark, acoustic context.

It really is all in the delivery – when an acoustic guitar, bass and a voice is enough to fill a room to capacity, why add anything else?

Dark illustrious stuff, for fans of the Cardiacs and Neutral Milk Hotel, as well as anyone who likes a good, inappropriate bedtime horror story…

Rogue are very proud to present Droome appearing live at Club 85, Hitchin for Rogue’s Victorian Ball on Saturday 21st November 2009.
