ANTON BARBEAU – DOGSTAR/ QUEEN OF EYES (Fruits de Mer 7” single) (2024)

Updated: May 21

I’ve heard a lot of Anton’s music, and heard a lot of cool stuff but this is a real high point. The A-side is a Barbeau original, with guest guitarist Barry ‘The Fish’ Melton from COUNTRY JOE McDONALD AND THE FISH adding some incendiary guitar: “He showed up with a custom-built Mesa Boogie amp. It was LOUD!

The release date is 10th June and the vinyl is limited to 300 copies.
