Sometimes the most interesting projects arise from the most unusual circumstances. So it is that DOWN ‘n’ OUTZ, a project fronted by Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and backed by The Quireboys have recorded 13 modern cover versions of rare yet monumental tracks by 70’s rock pioneers Mott, Ian Hunter and British Lions.
“Mott the Hoople has always been my favorite band and it’s nice to see the rest of the rock world finally catch up and give them their due” says Elliott. Joe Elliott’s DOWN ‘n’ OUTZ supported the legendary British icons, Mott The Hoople, at one of their critically acclaimed 2009 reformation shows at the Hammersmith Odeon. Following a rapturous reception, the one night project took on a life and energy of its own and a demo was born. Joe Elliott’s DOWN ‘n’ OUTZ then set out to record a full length LP of classic material entitled My ReGeneration.
Joe Elliott takes up the story, “When Mott The Hoople announced they were reforming for a week worth of shows at the Hammersmith Odeon I was asked that I participate in some capacity. They’ve always been my favorite band and it’s nice to see the rest of the rock world finally catch up and give them their due.”
“But, what was I to do? It was suggested to me that the Quireboys would be up for offering their services. This was perfect! A fan since their first album, I loved the idea of working with a band as enthusiastic to do this as I was.”
“I decided that the thing to do was play some songs that like minded people thought they would never hear live again, if ever, songs by spin offs of Mott the Hoople – songs by Mott, Ian Hunter and British Lions. Songs that are close to my heart, songs that I’ve played every week for the best part of 35 years on record, cassette, CD, Ipod and now live.”
The album was produced by Joe Elliott with co-production by Ronan McHugh and recorded in Elliott’s own studio “Joe’s Garage” and Moor Hall Studio in Bedfordshire. In addition to Joe Elliott (Vocals/Guitar/Keyboards) the band featured The Quireboys’ Paul Guerin (Guitar), Guy Griffin (Guitar), Keith Weir
(keyboards), Phil Martin (drums) and bassist Ronnie Garrity (Raw Glory).
My ReGeneration is the first part in a series of projects by theDOWN ‘n’ OUTZ.
