Alabama rock’n’roller Dan Sartain is back in Blighty for Easter, with presents for all!

Dan is to release a collection of rare recordings and clips as a CD/DVD double pack on Easter Monday, then embark on a month-long European tour with buddies Two Tears.

The ‘Legacy Of Hospitality’ (recordings from 1999-2009)
& ”˜Dan Sartain: Lives’ CD/DVD doublepack is released by One Little Indian on Monday – and that night, Dan and Two Tears will play London’s Buffalo Bar.

Part-companion to last year’s ”˜Dan Sartain Lives’, part document of Dan’s recording career to date, ”˜Legacy Of Hospitality’ is Dan’s very own ”˜Basement Tapes’ containing alternate versions, outtakes and unheard tracks of arcane provenance, pre-dating Dan’s earliest self produced and self released albums ”˜Crimson Guard’ (2001) and ”˜Romance In Stereo’ (2002). Exhumed for your listening pleasure are songs lost and/or forgotten.

Of the track ”˜Crimson Guard’ Dan concedes, “I don’t know what the hell this is!” and of his cover of ”˜Telegram Sam’, he swears: ”˜I thought Bauhaus wrote it!”

Accompanying the album is the ”˜Dan Sartain: Lives’ DVD documentary; a glimpse into the underground world of Dan Sartain as he does battle with the Serpientes ”“ pieced together by the man himself in glorious lo-fi-o-vision, complete with commentary from Dan and sometime video-maker and friend Matt Whiston .

After Monday’s gig, Dan and Two Tears will play Bristol, Cork, Belfast, Dublin, Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds and Cambridge before heading out to France, Holland, Belgium, Italy and Spain.
