The Duckbuster's Debut CD
In the summer of 2003, a stalwart party of musician cavers and caver-audience hauled an unusual collection of caving gear to a ledge in Resonance Cave on Vancouver Island. The guitars, the band in Resonancemandolin, flute and harmonica collection were some of the finest, but probably the most unusual equipment ever to disappear from the darkness in the entrance! The ensuing "concert" was remarkable, owing to the skill of the fine musicians and the spectacular acoustics of the site. From these humble subterranean beginnings, the remarkable Dangerous Dick and the Duckbusters were born! With the song-writing expertise of Adrian "The Mole" Duncan and Adam "Boomer" Larusic and the musicianship of "Phreatic" Peter Curtis they were on their way. With the interest and enthusiastic participation of Chris Gordon of Wedgewood Sound Studios, Coquitlam, BC, the debut CD "In Too Deep" was produced for the entertainment of cavers everywhere and the financial benefit of the Canadian Cave Conservancy. The result was a professionally recorded collection of all original "Songs of Caves, Cavers and Caving" which captured the spectrum of moods of our particular obsession. The title says it all..."In Too Deep" - we've all been there, and want to go back!
