Seven new originals by Holsapple and Stamey are now being completed. The band also recorded a Spectoresque version of Motown classic "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted" in reaction to the tsunami catastrophe, and had some fun with dB's and other oldies while the tape was rolling. So much was accomplished in a few days that it was tentatively decided to record more tracks and complete an album.
The dB's are currently looking for a label and a co-producer for these recordings, and hope to have an album out early in 2006. Live appearances may happen sooner.
This original dB's lineup of native North Carolinians was part of the vibrant New York music scene in the early eighties. According to allmusic.com, "The dB's defined the Southern power pop/jangle pop movement of the early to mid-'80s.... They provided a key link between Big Star and '80s alternative guitar acts such as R.E.M."
Peter is based in New Orleans where he performs with his new band, The Peoples' Revolutionary Army of Saint Bernard; he also works as a touring musician with Hootie and the Blowfish. Will lives in Shaker Heights, Ohio, and tours and records with Steve Earle and the Dukes. Both Chris and Gene have active recording and producing careers, Chris in Chapel Hill and Gene in New York. Chris has not one but two recent releases (both on Yep Roc): "Travels in the South" and "A Question of Temperature", the latter a collaboration with Yo La Tengo, pianist Tyson Rogers, and Gene Holder.
