Dull Knife

THE PRETTY THINGS are still performing and recording,and the NUCLEUS still consists of original members PHIL MAY on vocals and their wonderful guitarist DICK TAYLOR. Some years ago, new manager MARK ST. JOHN had the very sensible idea of surrounding MAY and TAYLOR with FRANK HOLLAND, a somewhat younger and  very seasoned musician (vocals, guitar, harmonica and what not)  PLUS a new, young, kicking RHYTHM SECTION with JACK GREENWOOD on drums and GEORGE WOOSEY on bass and vocals. GREENWOOD & WOOSEY released their very own album as DULL KNIFE. They recorded their own songs, the odd Pretty Things tune from days of old, even TOWNES VAN ZANDT.
RADIO 68 plays tracks from DULL KNIFE’s album  LIGHT IS THE NIGHT and DARK IS THE DAY + the most recent studio album by the Pretties with  Holland, Woosey and Greenwood: The Sweet Pretty Things (Are In Bed Now Of Course), 2015.

Dull Knife formed at the back end of 2013 after a few living room jams. George and Jack met through 60s psych band ThePretty Things, they make up the rhythm section and have a mutual interest in delta blues, 60s garage psych and outlaw country. Most of their repertoire was penned on the road in hotel rooms and in Jack’s living room.



He was a member of The Whirlwinds, The Mockingbirds (UK) and, of course, 10cc – but you surely know him as the composer of a whole string of hits for other artists, such as ‘Heart Full Of Soul’ (Yardbirds), No Milk Today (Herman’s Hermits) or ‘Bus Stop’ (Hollies).  Gouldman recorded as a solo act way back in the sixties, but today he is back on the road on his own – even releasing a new EP.
RADIO 68 PLAYS 1) selected tracks from Gouldman’s solo album “Love And Work (2012); b) a string of Gouldman covers – b-sides as well as hits (in fact, we’ve done our best to unearth the less obvious covers and versions) c) songs he wrote for his band The Mockingbirds.


“Rob Hoeke is widely considered to be one of the best Boogie-Woogie & Blues piano players ever to come out of Europe. He started out in 1957, recorded over 20 albums, 35 singles and performed all over the world, right up to the day he died on November 6th, 1999. His two sons Eric and Ruben each followed their own musical path in life, but now they have bonded for this special album. They started thinking about their dad’s musical legacy, dug up the unreleased recordings their father left them and started recording their parts to go along with the original piano tracks. The process was emotional and surreal, but they dug in the tunes with the spirit and the playing of their father as guidance. The playing sounds flawless and explosive. Rolling the Blues and kicking the Boogie like only they can”.  (
