Reflections on a Disco Sausage

Disco Sausage – a film about Johnny Dowd

  • By Hans Werksman

Dutch singer Mark Lotterman filmed Johnny Dowd when they were on tour in the UK last year. He turned it into mini-documentary. Disco Sausage catches him on the road and on stage, leading a shoestring rock ‘n ‘roll life style, doing interviews and trying to find the place where is supposed to sleep. Lotterman and Dowd are good friends and it shows in this labour of love. The title comes from an impression of a sausage routine that Johnny came up with during one of the shows.

Johnny will be on tour in Europe in October, promoting his latest album Execute American Folklore. Park Doing is the support act for the first two weeks (October 12 through 23) of his European tour and Mark Lotterman got the call for the final week (October 24 through 30).
