Dan O’Farrell & The Difference Engine is a roots-rock trio from England.
For some little while now there has been an exchange of emails between ourselves, which sadly, have never aligned until this point in time.
Regular readers, will anticipate that on being presented with a double-bass it is something I am likely to be delighted to share; even dating back to the last decade on the old URL.
Dan O’Farrell & The Difference Engine are able to do far more than merely add double-bass as they delve far beyond the saplings of ’50s rock’n’roll to conjoin their music with the tap and lateral roots of Southern Soul from the ’20s to deliver music that puts a fresh paintbrush to music of almost a century ago whilst equally able to sweep up the intervening decades with music which resonates of the ’10s and its fractured societal constructs.
A live performance earlier in the year surfaced a few days ago of the, as yet, unreleased Death By A 1000 Cuts which even more delightedly adds a fourth player on lapsteel in a song that reflects of the salami slicing of the 99% for the after-dinner cabaret entertainment of the 1%.
