Continuing touring with Bump, but now with Curtis Fowlkes replacing Ray Anderson, Previte records a new CD while on tour on the US west coast. This is released by Palmetto in 2002 as “Counterclockwise,” perhaps the finest recorded statement in that band’s illustrious history.
"Counterclockwise has that anti-social dissonance that has defined some of the best hip-hop. It's all about the buzz you get when music really crashes through your speakers, and I suppose the most important thing about Counterclockwise is that it has a tremendous sense of unapologetic, menacing weight." MAC TWO
A hard, funky, aggressive CD by The Vintage Bump band at the height of their powers, and the second record for Palmetto.
“Counterclockwise has that anti-social dissonance that has defined some of the best hip-hop. It’s all about the buzz you get when music really crashes through your speakers, and I suppose the most important thing about Counterclockwise is that it has a tremendous sense of unapologetic, menacing weight.”
Conceptually, I always wanted to do a record like this. It's in two alternating parts. Part 1 is essentially the same music but written in a modular fashion and arranged differently each take. The arrangements were not done on paper. Rather, through a shouted "code" of cities and states, I made up the arrangements on the fly, never to be exactly repeated. You can hear them in the background. This "suite" of the same basic music is interspersed with Part 2, pieces that have nothing at all do do with Part 1, nor with each other.

Yes,yes,yes! I've been waiting for Dave to do this again...two brilliant runs by DDQ and Keystone were documented on Greenleaf back in the day; they were groundbreaking...recorded and released within 24 hours for each set...they were stellar performances and I play them again and again.
With absolutely no chance of ever being there, this is the closest i'll ever be to 'being there'...so excited I may need to lay down in a darkened room for a while! John Cratchley

This quintet has acquired legendary status as a working unit...all the musicians are exemplary at their craft and DD is one of my 'Big5'...he is an exquisite composer of both depth and breadth of vision...you can instantly recognise Dave's DNA in a tune...what's more, you feel there is also so much more to come!;his powers of expression are so special.
These compositions are from the heart and I can only suggest that you take them to yours...
