Dhani Harrison’s Band TheNewNo2 Is Like A Rocket From The Crypt

Dhani Harrison plays — surprise — guitar and sings.  Oh, does he ever play guitar and sing.  You know where this story is going.  

Thenewno2 — the band name is recognizable to all you Patrick McGoohan fans out there — is a trippy, bluesy LA band with superb studio technique. As the world will soon know better, Dhani Harrison looks so much like George it’s scary, and his guitar technique is taken right off “Abbey Road.” His vocal print would fool an FBI-administered spectrogram.  George must have believed in reincarnation, right?

“You Are Here” is a surprisingly fascinating album, with the tone of Howard Devoto’s lamented Luxuria, but without the edge.  Rainy day music in a house of ghosts.

  1. Always good to hear others are listening to thenewno2; they’ve been quite under the radar! Props for mentioning Luxuria, as well, since I didn’t check them out until today because of reading your post, which I’ve mentioned in my last blog entry here!:
