Dan Patlansky Backbite live video


Displaying 1-3.jpg


Dan Patlansky has premiered a live version of his track Backbite.

It’s taken from his album Dear Silence Thieves, which is released today and marked with a performance at London’s Borderline tonight. The live version was recorded in his native South Africa last month.
He says of the track: “I got sick of singing about whisky and women. Backbite is like a traditional blues song – but more modern.”
Patlansky and his band tour the UK next month then return in November as support act for Joe Satriani:

Spirit On A Mission is a rapturous, explosive collection of brand new songs steeped in shades of dark and light. Musically and lyrically, the new album shows a re-energised guitarist at the top of his game, surrounded by some of the best musicians in rock.

The new album features twelve classic rock guitar-driven songs that highlight Schenker’s distinctive and dynamic guitar playing, valiantly underpinned by the ferocious rhythm section of Herman Rarebell and Francis Buchholz, the same rhythm section that originally performed together on the Scorpions’ 1979 album Lovedrive
Scottish vocalist Doogie White, who co-wrote the album with Schenker, soars across every song, and stamps his personality with every note and phrase, while Wayne Findlayadds a new level to Schenker’s classic sound with his Dean 7-string guitar and keyboard arrangements.

Spirit On A Mission was recorded at Kidroom Studios, Muenster, Germany; the same studio where 2013’s Bridge The Gap album was recorded. The album was produced byMichael Voss and Michael Schenker, and engineered by Voss.
The writing process and overall concept for Spirit On A Mission proved to be a fulfilling experience for Schenker and his band.  
Says Schenker - "I always write in the same way but this time, especially driven by a precise concept. The picture was album balance for me and combine many years of emotions in one. I wanted lots of double bass drum to keep the fast songs rolling like a train with lots of energy covered with interesting elements, a couple of my UFO days-type of mid tempos and the 7 string low sound to get a very wide range of sounds and emotions."

Dan Patlansky - Dear Silence Thieves


This album by Dan Patlansky was nominated as Blues Rock Review's number one Blues Rock Album of the year.  Considering he was up against the likes of Bonamassa and Rival Sons, that's no mean feat.


Patlansky, a singer, songwriter and guitarist from South Africa, releases Dear Silence Thieves in the UK on Monday 27th April with a launch gig at the Borderline in London the same night.

The album kicks off with Backbite, which has a riff and a guitar tone that the Red Hot Chilli Peppers would kill for.  It's Blues Rock with some soul funk .. a very cool groove.

I was playing this album in the car on a sunny spring evening - Pop Collar Jockey and Fetch Your Spade  - came blasting out through the speakers next and I soon found myself  nodding along and playing along by playing the drums on my steering wheel.

I mentioned 'Groove' before - that's something that Patlansky has in bucket loads.. he's not one for guitar histrionics. His Strat sound and whole technique is based around feel, not showing off for the sake of it.

My standout track is Hold On - which is at the blues end of the spectrum,  but all the tracks are good. Windmills and the Sea has an acoustic backbone and is one of those songs that gets straight into your head and you feel that you must have heard it years ago where as Madison Lane, is  a perfect, windows down, sunny evening sing along song.

If you've never heard Dan Patlansky and you're a fan of Joe Bonamassa or John Mayer, then give Dan a go, you won't be disapointed
