Bad Afro is launching a series of 12” EPs in 2014 and the first release will be a self titled 6-track EP by The Dandelion from Australia. The Dandelion is the solo project of Daniel J Poulter, the former frontman of The Dolly Rocker Movement. Bad Afro released the third Dolly Rocker album Our Days Mind the Tyme in 2010 and has since then also released two 7” singles.
Poulter has moved from Sydney to the country side as he needed a bit of loner time to work shit out and get back into making music again. Here there is more time for music and less distractions. The Dandelion is sort of a continuation of his former projects Los Sundowners, Kill City Creeps and The Dolly Rocker Movement where all his inspirations melt into one sound. Poulter is playing all the instruments himself on the EP and recorded the songs on a four track cassette machine and an old ADAT recorder. He also did the artwork. Currently a band is being formed and live shows will follow soon.
The six songs on the EP are taken from a very limited CD release called Strange Case of the Dandelion that Poulter released on his own in Australia. The EP is limited to 500 copies on black vinyl. The Dandelion was interviewed for It’s Psychedelic Baby Magazine in December 2013. It’s possible to read the interview HERE This 12″ is now sold out.
