New Aron Magner Interview Hints at Unclear Future For the Disco Biscuits

Two years ago, the Disco Biscuits were smack dab in the middle of their busiest year of touring in a decade and seemed to be gaining fans at an impressive rate. 2010 and 2011 have been much slower years for the group leaving tDB fans hoping that 2012 would mark a return to extensive tours.

Yellow Dubmarine: Abbey Dub

It is highly unlikely the Fab Four considered the possibility of infusing Abbey Road with the rhythms of Jamaica when they recorded the landmark album at the end of their career in 1969. It takes a lot of gusto for a young band of white musicians from the east coast of America, named Yellow Dubmarine no less, to attempt a full-fledged reggae reinterpretation of an album long considered one of the greatest records of all time and a pinnacle of the LP format.
