Describing Duke’s Music by Sergeant Sparrow:

“I can’t quite explain his music, how he came up with his orchestration, songwriting or arrangement. The music faded in and out of noise and urgent notes played on screeching guitars and dissonant cello. Syncopated intricate rhythms were played by two drummers. All the while powerful bass rooted you somewhere intangible while the rest floated around you begging you to stay but making you want to hide

somewhere seemingly safe. Your not quite sure such a place exists. Duke plays on two guitars. One a thick hunter green Gretsch Country Club hollow body and the other a lipstick red and black Fender Jazz Master. The music seems to hurt him as he rocks back and forth and the cacophony grows and transcends all concepts you had of music. I’d be surprised if Sonic Youth didn’t learn a thing or two from Duke. It’s all indie rockers strive for and usually fail at while at the same time it retains an almost 1950′s beatnik nightmare beach party feel. Needless to say I love it.”
