Bob "Derwood" Andrews has a new download album out called "Tone Poet". Derwood played guitar in Generation-X (also featured Billy Idol and Tony James) and later he formed the eighties pop band Westworld. Derwood's current band is Moondogg.

This new album is a solo project from Derwood. Some of it sounds a bit like the stuff on the "Speedtwinn - California" album. Some songs sound not too far from Moondogg, while other songs sound totally different. The sound is almost demo like on some of the tracks, but it sounds fine like that. The guitar playing on the album is really cool and shows just how great a guitarist Derwood is.

Soo Cat Woman sings the vocals on the rock'n'roll tune "Backstabbers". It is by far my favourite track on the new album and it is very catchy both in terms of lyrics, guitar riffs and melody. Other favourites of mine would be: "Coming Down Easy", "There's An End To Everything", "The Art Of Doing Nothing" and the instrumental "Bowlegged Blues".

The song "All Your Friends Are Strangers" was released on the Moondogg album "All The Love In The World" in 2004. On "Tone Poet" you'll find it in a different version with Derwood on vocals.

"Tone Poet" has 13 tracks and is only available as a digital download (MP3, 192kbps) via the SnoCap store from Derwood's Myspace page.

Yeah Irene. Let's hope he does another one soon. In let's see...20 years or so? :-) Anyway, I agree with you. It's a nice collection of songs and I really like (most of) them!

I just wanted to say that I really loved Derwood's latest work, Tone Poet. It's nice to hear him sing, play, and pretty much do it all. I thought that he must be thinking alot about life to put this out there. I could hear his message, or vibe run throughout the work.. I also love that he is really able to show off his many talents on this solo work. He sure is all about letting us know what he thinks about life. Good for him! What I really like is the picture with the shotgun! Backstabbers is a catchy song.. I crack up when you hear Derwood sing, "What they do" because you can really hear his english accent and it's like he's talking to you! I have no favorite yet,cause i like each and every song! I think i know them all by heart now!
