The newly released, Blessed Is The Boogie is the title track off the third highly anticipated album from Perth powerhouse, Datura4.Recorded mostly in a farmhouse studio south of Fremantle, Dom Mariani is again joined by the rhythm section of Stu Loasby and Warren Hall plus Datura4 debutants, Bob Patient (keys) and Howie Smallman (harmonica).
Adding to the album folklore, Mariani uses a ’69 Black Les Paul previously owned by much revered Sitting Bull guitarist, Paul Felton, (and rumoured to also once belong to the legendary Daddy Cool) on most of the 10-track album.
“We’ve had our challenges getting the new album done but we the band can say it is our most solid effort so far,” says Mariani. “Although it’s not indicative of the album, the title track is like the theme song to the movie.”
People on the street, you got to get ready! Blessed Is The Boogie is a psyched up, bluesy, riff-laden belter for the old school Oz rocker in all of us.
Blessed Is The Boogie, the album, is scheduled for release on April 5.
