It's okay to call my 7th album a Gashunters guilty pleasure. Being a kid from the 60's and 70's I grew up in the best musical realms. On Denim Avenue I took some inspiration from the world of rock & roll & rhythm & blues. However big the influence is, this 'tribute' is not meant to be too straightforward. Typical Gashunters sound characteristics are never far away :)
Like always the lyrics are impregnated by social and personal themes. 7 of them are written by my songwriting partner Astrid, 5 by myself. On a bunch of songs my friend Martijn Hover participates on additional guitars and backing vocals. By the name of Papa Yabo he does his own musical thing.
The album contains several references to champions in the world of R&R&R&B. The start 'Make me happy' is a tribute to the lighter rock sounds of Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds. Furthermore you can check out a blues in the spirit of Chicken Shack with 'I'd rather go blind', the swaying sound of the Allman Brothers or a rockabilly song in a Stray Cats way. Let's find out for yourself :)
