The Dunhill Blues

The Dunhill Blues


crazy horns over dirty, garage guitars and drums


The Dunhill Blues are the noisiest bunch of malcontents this side of the petticoat.
They play rock n roll, and they play anywhere, anytime.
The Dunhill Blues don’t sound like other bands. You reckon you can hear someone else in there then you’re kidding yourself.
The Dunhill Blues ain’t got cool haircuts and they leave wearing girl’s jeans to the ladies.
The Dunhill Blues love their mums.
The Dunhill Blues are indestructible. Their rehearsal space burnt to the ground, and the van’s been stolen (more than once). They have also survived the sudden death of founding member and beloved friend, Kristen McCall (4/4/77-29/4/09).
The Dunhill Blues are Dan Batchelor (Gtr/Vox), Greg Bergin (Gtr/Vox), Adam Brzowski (Bass/Vox), Frank Bliss (Banjo/Sax/Vox), Michael Budden (Gtr/Trumpet/Vox), Daris Atrins (Organ/Gtr) and Kristen (he’ll always be there).
The Dunhill Blues are just regular guys trying to get by.
The Dunhill Blues released the super rare “12” mini-album” in May 2008 (100 copies only). Everybody that heard it seemed to think it was a bit of the alright.
I-94 called it “the Hope Diamond in a window of Pandora’ Bracelets”
The Dunhill Blues are set to release their debut album through Off The Hip Records in August 2009. The album was recorded at Brain Studios in Surry Hills NSW, over 2 days in February (The same 2 days that Victoria almost burnt to the ground!). The album is full of songs about unsavory acquaintances, lonely shift workers, hangovers and evil twins.
