Dan Patlansky bites back live

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.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
