Dalbello and Ronson by cozywelton Dalbello and Ronson by cozywelton
Ah, Lisa Dalbello and Mick Ronson. (Or Dalronno in my mind for short, haha) They made the fantastic "whomanfoursays" album back in 1984 and due to record companies being picky, they didn't get to record another one. Unfair, I say.

I'm really rather into Dalbello's stuff at the moment, and lovely Ronno was my first proper guitar hero when I was a heavily obsessed 9 year old Bowie fan. It's comforting.

Anyway, this drawing is inspired by this interview/song promo on Norwegian TV. [link]

Fantastic! Thank you so much for this drawing. They created absolutely unique album, such a shame they couldn't work together on the next one... Amazing how versatile Ronno was.
I wish they had made video for Guilty By Association... So nice Mick added vocals in the chorus. )

Glad you like it. :)
Yeah, it's such a shame, really don't know why the record company was so against it.
That would've been great. I'd have loved it if they went on tour together, that would've made some lovely footage!

Wow GOSH, I loved that. Playing with a spoon. I haven't seen anyone on dA who knows about this kind of stuff! I want to cry! Wow. God sorry haha. Freaking out a bit. Have you heard any of whomanfoursays? I've tried but I can't find it anywhere....

This sort of stuff is what I'm all about, haha. Obscurities that take the place of important things I should be remembering!
Of course I have, I'm a big Dalbello fan, and tying that up with a lovely bit of Mick Ronson sealed the deal. It's not that hard to get, I got a second hand copy from Amazon for about 5. And $4.17 isn't too shabby either: [link]

I'd never even heard of her before, honestly, haha. Not sure if I was even a fan of the music (I don't remember it, tbh). I used to think Mick's choice in people he played with/what he liked was insane (Annette Peacock's original "I'm the One" for example), but I kind of grew to love it after awhile, in moderation, I have some respect for it.
Wow they really do have some pretty cheap deals.
I wish I could find Peacock's "I'm the One" too...I have X-Dreams, which Ronson played on, and it's a good album, but I'd like Im the One too...

I always liked her voice, she sounded like she actually meant what she was singing instead of mindlessly warbling and going for high notes for the hell of it (take note, rubbish modern day lady singers).
One of the reasons I love Mick is that he played with a wide variety - it showed what a versatile musician he was.

OH GOD I KNOW. IT'S THE TRAP OF EVERY MODERN FEMALE SINGER. Thank God someone else noticed.

He really did, and he had great taste in who he worked with/produced, aaah. I know he produced Fatal Flowers and I haven't heard a ton of them but they're really good too aah and from that point I just decided to go with the man's taste.

I thought it was difficult not to notice, haha. :P

In death, he's left us a lovely back catalogue to peruse through! Bless that bloke.
