Rob Dickinson (Catherine Wheel) CD Release Party!

Set Times
Doors @ 8:30pm
The Daylights @ 9pm
Rob Dickinson @ 10pm

One of my favorite musicians on the planet, Rob Dickinson, The former Catherine Wheel frontman, still remains one of the most criminally overlooked forces in music. Many will recall Britain’s Catherine Wheel as one of the most range-roaming, seminal and viscerally intense alternative rock bands of the ’90’s: “Eat my dust, you insensitive fuck,” purred silky vocalist Rob Dickinson on the band’s 1994 release HappyDays.

Dickinson is re-releasing his debut solo album, Fresh Wine For The Horses, which will come as a two-disc set with the Nude EP on June 10. The album itself will come with the brand new song, “The End Of The World,” which is classic Rob.

The second disc is a six track EP of freshly recorded Catherine Wheel classics that you will get to hear in their acoustic glory. He still remains one of the most criminally overlooked forces in music, but perhaps 2008 will bring him the recognition that he deserves.

The Daylights did 20+ dates with OneRepublic earlier this year and plan on going back out on the road this summer/fall. There music has been placed in video games, movies, commercials, TV shows, etc. They have been signed to a major but are now a free agent. They are a 3-piece band and have a range of influences from U2 to Radiohead to Coldplay to being just as much inspired by the literary greats (Steinbeck, Rilke and Dostoyevsky).

Other great news is that The Daylights are being featured in the Miller Highlife rewards program. You can find codes on over 40 million Miller cases that give you access to free songs and more. So buy Miller High Life and get free Daylights songs…yeah!

And their songs are also being featured with The Hotel Indigo Group, which means you’ll be able to hear a few of their tunes at the following hotels: Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Hotel Indigo, InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Staybridge Suites, Candlewood Suites, etc.
