President of MRR, Nick Katona has stated; “this is a special signing for us at MRR. We love to discover and promote new music by some of the world’s best unknown musicians, no matter what the style or genre.
We love all music and especially the blues. Inviting DC Snakebuster to join our family of talented musicians was a no-brainer, but there is more to DC than just the blues, he is a fully self-contained-one-man-band that tours throughout Europe spreading his brand of blues music. DC Snakebuster doesn’t just play in pubs and clubs, he also takes his music to the people, has no problem in busking up a new fanbase.”

The album features 11 blues or blues interpretations of some classics and some not so well-known songs including: On the Road Again, Are You Ready, No Place To Go, Crazy Mama, Big Boss Man, Personal Jesus, I Wish You Would, Alabama Train, I Got My Mojo Working, Hi-Heal Sneakers, Baby Please Don’t Go..
About The Album
I chose theses song for my first recording, even before other recordings I liked… what I liked about these particular songs was the open sound they had and how they sounded in a big room… they had a big live sound.
So I started with some songs to record but not every song works with a One-Man-Band, of course, I like many songs, but it seems like the songs I recorded chose me… sometimes I start with songs I like but it just doesn’t work.
It’s not easy to create a full sound as a One-Man-Band without extra hi-tech. My recordings are recorded live and raw in the studio… with no overdubs or frills. What you hear on the album is what you will hear me playing live.
Dirk Lekene, is a good slide guitar player and he’s come out to see a few shows of mine. Dirk liked my style and wanted to record me, I thought yes, of course, this is a great idea, so he decided to record my songs in one take… to save the mojo… he said
In the studio there were mics all over, not only for the instruments I was using but throughout the room, on the ceiling even in an old crappy banjo and so on. He was looking for that special sound, I think we found it.
In a statement from DC Snakebuster
“I’m very Happy and Proud… that Melodic Revolution Records has given me this opportunity, I love the freedom and that I can grow with my music in a direction where I feel comfortable… I feel this is the perfect fit and it makes me happy as an artist.”
