Jore's pc music "project" from 1995 to about 2000. 20 albums of different styles, from folk to progressive. Most of the tracks have been used later as background music for songs starting with The Mescaline Smugglers' Cinnamon Salami to probably all of The Baltic Moonshine Band boxes. LISTEN ...

Davy McGowan

Davy and Tom Grierson's duo in Bellshill, Scotland long before the days of The Mescaline Smugglers. Active from the early 80's to the late 90's.

Something like the way The Baltic Moonshine Band is working now, or the Humblebums way back then in Scotland... is it the Scottish way? LISTEN ...

Thirteen Down

After 2010 Davy was not happy to leave his ageing mum for weeks alone at home. Davy and Jore continued recording music but on their parallel tracks.

Their trademark is to make 4 cd boxes only! Isn't that odd? Active from 2010 and still going strong. So far 12 boxes (48 CDs). READ MORE ...
