Dave S loves Prog from early Genesis to Big Big Train and Glass Hammer. They both love the music of Pink Floyd and the lyrics of Jon Anderson. Salander was born at the start of 2013.The two Daves have been work colleagues and friends for years and had been playing in a rock /blues band that played covers. The two Daves started to write some originals.
Dave S wrote the music and Dave C the lyrics .After leaving the band they started to record some of these songs in Dave S's home studio. The tracks were recorded layer by layer starting with either a drum pattern or a chord sequence. Lyrics would then be written by Dave C or drawn from his vast collections of poems and songs written over the years. In September 2013 the concept came together for Crash Course For Dessert and recording took 3 months.
Dave S took a further 6 weeks to mix and master the album. Due to financial constraint and the fact there are only the two of them, there are no plans to play live, although it can not be written out entirely . They are now working on the follow up to Crash Course For Dessert. Dave Curnow. Lyrics. Lead Guitars. Rhythm Guitars.
