Bio..David G. Preston is an intriguing character. Glimpses of him evaporate from his music making its attraction not so much steamy as evocative. ..He has just returned from his European and UK tour and is back in the studio recording new material and getting involved with his new Band SCORPION JACK. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ..Whilst on tour he found himself in London at the same time as the G20 protests and since he couldn't get into the G20 to see what they were up to he joined the protestors and spent the day being all protestant like. At the same time he recorded the sound of the crowd, police and helicopters flying overhead in between finding a PA to plug into and play a song or two. He then used these recordings as part of his set (back ground ambience) that night in the 12 Bar Club, where he saw his cousin, friends and tattooist, Baron from True Love Tattoo. .. David has been putting himself outside of his comfort zone and developing an empresario attitude to life. He regularly plays three word songs. Songs made up from three words from the audience combined together into a story then played as a song there and then, off the cuff. When it works it is a lot of fun and when it doesn't a heckler's haggle ensues. ..David helps run the music charity Belfast Urban Collective currently known as the Music Liberation Front which runs the Liberation Laboratory, or LIB LAB as well as moving into a mansion house to build sculptures and perhaps his own religion, Davidology. ..> .. .. .. ....Join the Mailing List.... .. ..Enter your name and email address below:..
