EAMONN DOWD MUSICIAN, RECORDING ARTIST, DJ AND ROCK 'N' ROLL SURVIVALIST
"one of the great survivors of irish rock 'n' roll " Olaf Tyranasen (Hot Press)
"..a terse articulation of the devil's music" John Fleming (Irish Times)
Deal with Yourself is an 18-minute video about Eamonn Dowd. Shot in March of this year, a revealing interview is interlaced with rehearsal and concert footage. A picture emerges of Dowd as an idiosyncratic talent, a man driven by his music but wary of the industry that might cage or co-opt it. Writing songs. Gigging across Europe. Navigating by his own star. Releasing records with his Irish band the Racketeers and Swedish band the Last Souls. Deal with Yourself is an insight into Dowd’s maverick and muse-riddled world of music.
Directed and edited by John Fleming and Brian Flanagan. NB: Trailer. Full film coming soon.
