TT'S DOWN N' OUTZ Take a bit of Def Leppard, add a lot of Quireboys, and what have you got. Probably one of the finest superstar bands in the country, that’s what. Joe Elliott and Down ‘n’ Outz are pleased to announce the release of a brand new album The Further Adventures Of…, which is the third instalment of the project fronted by Def Leppard’s lead singer Joe Elliott, and features tracks connected to Mott the Hoople. The project was born in 2009 when Mott The Hoople reformed and asked long-time friend and fan Joe to get involved and he promptly formed the Down ‘n’ Outz with The Quireboys' Paul Guerin (Guitar), Guy Griffin (Guitar) and Keith Weir (keyboards), plus Phil Martin (drums). Together they looked to bring songs by Mott The Hoople and spin off projects of Mott, Ian Hunter and British Lions to a wider audience. In 2009 Down ‘n’ Outz supported Mott The Hoople at one of the band’s five Hammersmith Apollo shows, which garnered so much fan interest that an album just had to be made. And in 2011 the exciting My Re-Generation was born including singles ‘England Rocks’ and ‘Overnight Angels’, reaching No 4 and No 1 on the US rock charts, keeping Clapton off the top. Fast forward to the present and bigger, brighter and more popular than ever, new album The Further Adventures of… features the good-time classisc ‘Rock And Roll Queen’, ‘One Of The Boys’ and ‘The Journey’ A rich and much-loved seam of UK songwriting, over to Joe himself, ‘These songs make up a huge portion of who I am and I feel incredibly privileged to have been able to record them and hopefully give them a new lease of life, which, quite frankly, is long overdue.” And the legend himself Ian Hunter, ‘I’m blown away … the solo by Paul Guerin on ‘The Journey’ is one of the best I’ve heard. These songs really suit Joe’s voice also. It’s a whole different side to him and the project gets my approval!” What’s not to love …
