Dan Patlansky has premiered a live version of his track Backbite with TeamRock.
It’s taken from his album Dear Silence Thieves, which is released today and marked with a performance at London’s Borderline tonight. The live version was recorded in his native South Africa last month.
He says of the track: “I got sick of singing about whisky and women. Backbite is like a traditional blues song – but more modern.”
The studio version is included on the covermount CD with the latest edition of Classic Rock, on sale now and also featuring Van Halen, Nightwish, Dire Straits, Seasick Steve, Big Star and more.
