Hi, my name is Matt, not only do I play guitar in I am Duckeye, I also have a full time job and write reviews of live music and albums. So when Anthony asked me to review my own band for Desert Highways, I relished the idea! Firstly for the challenge and secondly, I can tell the truth about how frigging awesome we are. Sure Dad always said “Self praise is no recommendation”, but he hasn’t seen I am Duckeye yet.
This gig wasn’t just another gig, it was a launch for our second album “Commando Too”, an album that we successfully crowd funded. We were graced with some really fun opening acts: Bricks, Sierra Leone & Grindhouse; three bands that any line up would be better for having, and we got the trifecta!
