ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"This is Lynrd Skynrd revived. This is southern rock with a hint of indie, definitely a new age kind of music. Songs such as 'No News' and 'Feelin Good Blues' take us back to when cowpunks roamed the nation. For people who can't stand country but love classic rock, here's a happy medium." (Review by Nicole Volpicelli of The Circle Magazine.)

Dennis Feeney is a bassist, songwriter and singer who crafts rock, country and jazz. "Boots Belts Irons" is Feeney's first album produced by Eric 'Roscoe' Ambel (of Steve Earle, and the Yayhoos).

The album was recorded at Colorado Sound Studios in Westminster, Colorado and at Cowboy Technical Services in Brooklyn, New York. Tim Hatfield, Lorne Bregitzer and Greg Duffin engineered it.

Dennis Feeney has played gigs from Wyoming to New York City's famed Lakeside Lounge in the East Village. Read further to find out more about the guys on the "Boots, Belts, Irons" recording...

David has played professionally for more than 20 years, and cites Jesse Ed Davis, Ry Cooder, and the Kings (B.B., Albert, and Freddie) among his influences. He has a fondness for Fender Telecasters and American "roots" music -- from Robert Johnson to John Hiatt to Son Volt.

Drummer Aric Hageman was born in Breckenridge, Minnesota. His influences are Carter Beauford, Mike Portnoy, and Travis Baker. He uses Yamaha Beech Custom drums and Zildjian cymbals.

DENNIS FEENEY - Electric bass, voice, songwriting

Bassist Dennis Feeney lives in Boise, Idaho, was born in Kansas City and did most of his growing up in Laramie, Wyoming. Dennis started writing songs and playing in bands in the sixth grade right after hearing Eric Ambel's band, The Dirty Dogs. His musical influences range from the early punks, to classic country artists and the jazz greats. Dennis plays Stonetree and Rickenbacker basses through an SWR bass amp.

Roots With Soul!
This here album is excellent! If you are into cave tools--the basic elements of rock & roll; bass, drums and guitar, you'll love this album. Not over-produced, with plenty of space for the instruments and vocals to operate in. The songwriting is to-the-point and fitting for these times. Dennis has surrounded himself with great people for this album--outstanding musicianship and Roscoe has successfully magnetized these sounds as only he can do.

Outside rock'n'roll that rocks your socks and grins your chops
16 bars of thick drums and bass, with an overlay of feedback guitar (reminiscent of Neil Young’s Ragged Glory) introduce this CD and clearly indicate it’s going to be far too heavy to sit back and listen to at low volume, and way too much fun to take seriously. The first track, titled No News, is just good rockin. The vocals are straight forward, unpretentious and full of contemporary comments about the world we live in. The two, slightly more mellow tracks that follow, nicely pave the way for a real kicker titled When We Get Bored. This is outside, hard-edged rock and roll that rocks your socks and grins your chops. The humor in the lyrics, the steady punch of Feeney’s bass and the solid drive of the lead guitar player make this song, and the entire album, a bag of enjoyment from start to finish. Unlike 90% of the CDs of the past ten plus years, the mix on this album is distinctive and perfectly balanced. You can hear what everyone is playing while you are enjoying the lyrics of the songs. It’s the kind of sound that forces you to air-band the guitar licks and bounce your head to the beat, song after song. A cautionary note, however: if you use it while you’re driving, watch your foot. Speeding tickets are very costly these days.

most enjoyable
Wow guitars guitars guitars...did i mention this cd has guitars....The rythmn playing on this cd is awesome and is just finished off to perfection by the virtuoso lead performances...superb. This is not to say there is nothing else to grab the attention of the listener far from it this CD has it all memorable songs great singing and lilting harmonies. The most notable element of the CD is the amount of energy on display most of the songs featuring a really kicking backbeat that is irresistible. So overall yeah Id say I loved this CD...excellent....

Boots, Belts, Irons
I´ve got that CD as Eric Amble was related as producer and more (a great luxe). So I recently began to listen the record and the DF & The Den Dogs music; as you feel that more than half of the themes of this CD are really really good, you know that you have the luck of discovering that they are great musicians group. Enjoy it, as a nice gift for our ears. Fantastic also CD Baby crew (they´re extremely careful with music items and customers).

Words+Music
Lyrics are where this album starts, but the groove carries it home. Songwriter Feeney opens his heart and soul on every cut, deftly wedding the personal and the political. Two instrumental tracks - "Heather's Song" and "Bear Lodge Funk" - contrast with each other while entwining the rest of the lot. Eric "Roscoe" Ambel's production lassoes everything as neatly as you'd want on a roots-rock disc. Like the wide-open roads and mountain spires of Feeney's Wyoming homeplace, BBI is a bracing tonic for a world of bad news, cubicized homeoffice spaces and ironic posing.
