Dave Dulake – Butterfingers

Bewildering debut album from Southend-based oddball

Trending Now

Discovered by Rollo from Faithless, yet bearing a debut LP that grafts the obnoxious punk of The Libertines onto wailing Hammond organs and spoken-word stories about curiosity shops, Dave Dulake certainly stretches the imagination. Underneath the self-indulgence of “The Welcome Home Prezzie” and “Lady Beckenham”, which are no more than off-kilter skits, Dulake can be a canny songwriter. “School Ambrosia” is an unexpectedly chilling ballad of child abduction, and “Don’t Ask Me, I’m Not Even In The Band” beats The Hives at their own game.
