Dolorean is an American band based in Portland, Oregon. They have, at times, acted as the backing band for Damien Jurado. Their current line-up is: Al James, guitar/vocals; Jay Clarke, organ/piano; Ben Nugent, drums/percussion/vocals; James Adair, bass; and Emil Amos, guitar.
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.”||”|
The group has worked with Portland area musicians such as Jay Clarke who records with Knitting Factory Records under the moniker Ash Black Bufflo, and Emil Amos who records on Partisan Records under the moniker Holy Sons.
