DAN SARTAIN – Replacement Man (CD Single)

One Little Indian 766TP7CD: 25th September 2006
1. Replacement Man
“Well he don’t love you no more, and when you kiss me you just want to even up that score”
2. Indian Ink (Toe Rag Version)
“We’ll mark out the name of the girl that I love, with no fancy gun, with no rubber gloves, with a needle and thread, and I’ll stand over the sink, well give me that bottle of indian ink”

Dan Sartain conjures the spirit of Johnny Cash in ‘Replacement Man’s bitter tale of unrequited love. Acoustic Guitars and Drums beat out a kind of cowboy rhythm while Ennio Morricone Electric Guitars crash over the top. It’s just one of the standout tracks from his new album ‘Join Dan Sartain’.

Some of Dan’s new album was recorded at Liam Watson’s famous Toe Rag studios, London (Including ‘Replacement Man’) but the album version of ‘Indian Ink’ was recorded at Strange Sounds studio in San Diego. The LP recording has aggressive Guitars but the ‘Toe Rag Version’ has none at all and is instead built around Tribal Drums. Musically, I’d say it was a better track, but the angry album version does fit the lyrics better and it also omits the excellent first verse.
