The Rakes‘ former frontman Alan Donohoe has announced that he is set to embark on a new musical career “in disguise”.
“I’ve got an idea for another musical project with my friend Andy,” he said. “It will be a bit like when Stephen King started writing his Richard Bachmann novels – I want to do the new project in disguise so I won’t be riding on The Rakes‘ name. It will be next year that things really get going.”
He added: “We’ve got some plans individually to do some other musical stuff. I just spent a fair bit of money on a new keyboard. I’m writing lots of new material but it will be very different from The Rakes.”
