"Your Favorites" is the raw and primitive debut album from Dictator Ship, the latest band to have been signed up by Swedish record label The Sign Records. (It seems The Sign are on a mission to spread the word about 'Scando-Rock' in all its forms to a global audience!) The CD continues a recent trend..

They were signed to the Dutch record label S I Music but when that folded in 1994, Davey quietly drifted away from the music..
With this album I think we did manage to capture the live aspect even better... Wherever your preferences lie along the rock spectrum, Sweden seems to have a band for you. Whether it’s the doom metal of Candlemass, the power metal of Sabaton, or the progressive metal of Opeth, the country seems to have amazing..
A foot-stomping, hard-rocking piece of jugband blues, punctuated by Fish’s cigar-box rocking slide guitar, the coloured lights filtering through her bobbing, Monroe-inspired coiffure. Félix Rabin - photo by Robert Sutton Islington Assembly Hall found itself completely sold out for this gig by popular Kansas City blues babe Samantha Fish. Her opening act on this tour..
