Drew Danburry “Expulsion Papers Unearthed, For Micah Again or Forever”

AUK has had a longstanding love affair with the music of Drew Danburry and that’s about to blossom into its latest iteration with the release of not one but two new albums. ‘Icarus Phoenix’ is due out early September but in the meantime he’s released an album of “b-sides” from the record, most of which are so strong in their own right you almost bridle at the thought of them being “B”s and not “A”s. The opening track is called ‘Expulsion Papers Unearthed, For Micah Again or Forever’ and Drew tells us: “This song was written about the murder of John Beckley at the Clapham Common in 1953. It incited the beginning of Britain’s first post-WWII rebellious teen culture known as the Teddy Boy and rock and roll. It’s also inspired by the first song I ever wrote with Micah Dahl Anderson which has never been released (cause this version is better?)” Having never heard it we don’t know, but it’s better than most things you will hear this week.
