Execute Tour Summed Up

Howdy people.

Just got back from a super fun tour of Europe. The crowds were great. They really opened their hearts (and wallets) to me and the Sex Robots.

I want to thank Mike Edmondson and Anna Coogan. They rocked it every night and did all the hard work behind the scenes (driving, merch sales, getting me out of bed). Also want to thank Mark Lotterman and Park Doing. They did the support on the tour and lit a fire under me every night (and also helped with the practical stuff).

Thanks to Sedate Bookings for a great job booking the tour, to Artist on the Road for supplying the van and equipment, and to Del Day of Ark PR for promo. It’s a pleasure doing business with you guys. And last, but not least, thanks to Kat Dalton, my wife and manager. Without her hard work, there would be no tour or indeed no Johnny Dowd music career.

Below are some of my photos from my instant camera which Kat got for me for the tour.

Johnny Dowd: nieuw album Execute American Folklore

Ik denk dat ik inmiddels een ceedeetje of veertien heb van Johnny Dowd. Maar 1 fan maakt natuurlijk nog geen zomer. Dus zag ook Johnny Dowd zich genoodzaakt om zijn nieuwe album te financieren d.m.v. crowdfunding. Fans konden onder meer ere-werknemer van zijn verhuisbedrijf Zolar Moving Company worden.

“Execute American Folklore” wordt de titel van het album dat 9 september verschijnt.

1 oktober start er een Europese tour. Onderstaand de Nederlandse concertdata.

I think I now have a ceedeetje fourteen Johnny Dowd. But one fan, of course, does not make a summer. Also saw Johnny Dowd forced to finance his new album via crowdfunding. Fans could be more honorary employee of his moving company Zolar Moving Company.

Execute American Folklore” is the title of the album September 9 appears.

October 1 will start a European tour. Below are the Dutch tour dates.

Date      location                place                      support act

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).
