ZIP Records announces the release of the debut CD from ROGERS & BUTLER. The new EP titled Diana Dors features Edward Rogers on lead vocals and Stephen Butler (Smash Palace) on lead vocals, guitar and organ. All the songs on Diana Dors were co-written by Rogers & Butler. The EP also features Sal Maida (Roxy Music, Sparks) on bass guitar, Dennis Diken (The Smithereens) on drums and the EP’s producer, Don Piper (Syd Straw) on guitar and backing vocals. Rogers and Butler first met and bonded over a mutual love and respect for British singer-songwriter Duncan Browne. Their friendship turned into a song writing partnership resulting in the duo’s debut EP, Diana Dors. Zip Records has scheduled a February 2019 release date for the CD.
