To truly appreciate Donkey Island Penitentiary the reader must go where few men have gone before – into the bowels of imaginary prison. In this place you will encounter many things among which will include, but won’t be limited to, bluesy harmonicas, punchy but not overly aggressive lyrics and vocals, solid drums and in some instances (like on the “Look Into My Eyes” Prelude track) a strange concoction of synth strands and warp drive electronic wails.
As musical outlaws Donkey Island Penitentiary band members Big Dave, Vincent, Alejandro and Miguel play aggressive tributes to time travel, vigilante justice, and deals with devils as they continue to evade the law and play a fuzz barking harmonica and punk driven blues
Our personal favorite is “Going Down” on Track 5, a slower moving song that will yank at your heart while you are tapping your toes and rolling to it’s classical blues rock beat.
