Gritty homespun blues has its time and place, as The Dough Rollers just learned the hard way.
Photographer Carl Byron Batson keeps an open mind:
‘On tour with Billy Idol. They seem to get a bad press from the Idol fans but I quite liked the bluesy rock whiskey-swigging support’.
Drowning out the critics with a drop of Dublin’s finest distilled malt, The Dough Rollers rock the Apollo.

Photographer, published poet, former party animal, body builder, grave robber
to the stars and renowned chainsaw juggler, Carl can often be spotted on his
Harley Davidson pretending to be in Terminator 2. He is also frequently seen in
the press pits of old London town, camera in hand, avoiding being hit by bottles
of wee and crippling his opposition with secret Kung Fu moves.
