You’ll recall that when the Felice Brothers swung into Valentine’s last month to celebrate the release of their devastating new album, “Yonder Is the Clock,” they were sans drummer/brother Simone Felice.
Well, apparently Simone has teamed up with Robert “Chicken” Burke to form new duo the Duke & the King (named after the ramblin charlatans of Mark Twain’s classic “Adventures of Huckelberry Finn”). The twosome has been laying low recording their debut album, “Nothing Gold Can Stay,” which is slated for release in August on Ramseur Records.
Of course, you can hear a sneak preview on the D&K MySpace page, or better still, catch them in concert at the Colony Cafe in Woodstock on Friday, May 22.
FYI – Simone Felice is also quite an accomplished author, whose latest book is the fable-noir novel “Hail Mary, Full of Holes.”
