Spo Dee O Dee – Colours [2019 Version]

In 1988, singer/guitarist Ross Curry, bass player Ralph Brink and drummer Jan Holtman formed Spo Dee O Dee. The Dutch rock band took its name from one of the first prototypical rock โ€˜nโ€™ roll songs: 1946โ€™s Drinkinโ€™ Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee by Stick McGhee. That was named after the alcoholic fruit drink โ€˜spodiโ€™, a cocktail of red wine and bourbon. In the early โ€˜90s, they got more and more popular in the live circuit and on alternative radio stations. Their debut album Goinโ€™ Walkabout was produced by Richard Jansen of legendary Dutch rock outfit Fatal Flowers.

For their third album, Spo Dee O Dee got the chance to record in Dublin with U2 producer Flood. Because of equipment failure however, the band returned home without any recordings. In 1995, they called it a day.

Fast forward to 2019. Spo Dee O Dee are back together and will start a comeback tour through the Netherlands in January 2020. As a warming-up, they re-recorded one of their first singles, 1991โ€™s Colours. Still a great song with international class. I hope the world is ready for them now!
