Dan Patlansky premieres Fetch Your Spade video

Dan Patlansky has premiered his video for Fetch Your Spade with TeamRock.

It’s taken from the South African’s seventh album Dear Silence Thieves, which has already won him an album of the year award.

Patlanksy recently said: “The biggest focus on the album is the songs. As producer Theo Crous put it, ‘We can take this album in any direction, but the song – platform – needs to be what it builds on.’

“We didn’t move on to guitar sounds, solos or singing until we were were happy with how the song was. It’s taken me years to realise, but it’s the right direction to be going in.”

Patlansky opens for Joe Satriani on his November UK tour, then headlines London’s Borderline in December with special guest Aaron Keylock. He’s featured in the current edition of Classic Rock, on sale now in print, digital and via TeamRock+. Fetch Your Spade appears on the magazine’s covermount CD.

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.
