Dolorean is an American band based in Portland, Oregon. Their current line-up is: Al James, guitar/vocals; Jay Clarke, organ/piano; Ben Nugent, drums/percussion/vocals; James Adair, bass; and Jon Neufeld, guitar.

Hiatus[edit]

After the release of their 2007 album, You Can't Win, Dolorean went on a hiatus until 2010. Al James told TheWaster.com in an interview:

We had released about three records in about five years. There was a lot of touring, a lot of time in the studio and I think we all just needed a little bit of break ... We just needed a little break to re-calibrate and get some good energy going again.”[3]

The group has worked with Portland area musicians such as Jay Clarke who records with Knitting Factory Records under the moniker Ash Black Bufflo,[4] and Emil Amos who records on Partisan Records under the moniker Holy Sons.[5]
