Burnshee Thornside

Burnshee ThornsideThe third release from K. Burnshee and Matt Thornside. (The funky "Steely Dan Duo" from Sweden.) This album is a joyful mix of jazz-soul, funky jazzrock and some beautiful ballads, along with intelligent, funny and out-of-the-ordinary lyrics. "How did they come up with that? That's not something you can write a song about... Or? I guess they just did...".
During a period of 10 months, 15 songs have been selected and recorded at Resaro Studios. Burnshee Thornside will take you through the story of Errol Flynn ("Dear Errol"), the tragic life of the first woman to make plastic surgery ("Consuelo") and the life of a man who can't seem to avoid having sex with every woman he meets (Tennis in Venice).
And there's more. "Wish I could write lyrics like Bob Dylan" is a philosophic and bitter statement, while "Rock This Moon" is about a great party in space. Not forgetting "Doodelido", about how to write love poems, and "Bang I Shot Him", the Wild West epic about The Meaning Of Life.
You'll have a surprising voyage with Burnshee and Thornside, no doubt :-)
Instruments have been played, guitars have been choosen, drums have been beaten. Take after take has been evaluated and, sometimes kept, sometimes put in the bin. It's been lovely hard work and now it's your time to listen.
