Harry Coulson's Rain Dogs - Thin Lizzy     Jazz, Instrumental, Blues, Grunge 28/04/2014
Not an average jazz trio. Drawing as much influence from Bill Evans as the Dirty Three and Mark Ribot. Harry Coulson's Rain Dogs are jazz, blues and grunge thrown together.
A crankin' up-tempo tune composed at a soundcheck for a rock gig. Featuring a breakneck guitar solo and trash-can drum break. The form of Thin Lizzy is based over an odd bar structure of 2x 3/4 bars followed by 2x 4/4 bars which took some getting used to in rehearsals.

A haunting gospel groove that swirls through a summer storm. 40 kitsch glasses were harmed in the making of this song, with Susy smashing the glasses into a wheelie bin to produce the sample to feature in the track. Recorded with Shane O'Mara (Paul Kelly, Tim Rogers, The Audrey’s).

Performing and recording with some of the country's leading improvisers and artist's including Scott Tinkler, Ollie Browne and Katie Noonan; has earned Sam Bates recognition within the Australian jazz scene.
Written during a trip to Canada – where these beasts still roam the hills, the sentiment is forceful with a hint of the solitary nature of the Wolverine. Again, I enjoy the challenge of building a performance within the cycle of a prescribed rhythmic structure.
