Ich bin ein Duke

Dukes of Windsor

Free, downloadable, acoustic version of It’s A War.

with 2 comments

We have a free song to give you! It’s an acoustic version of It’s A War – we recorded it right here in our apartment in Kreuzberg, Berlin. Before we get to it, however, I’d like to bring to your attention some of the things we’ve been noticing during our time in Berlin, which are starting to make us feel that all is not as it seems.

First thing:

You've got to be joking #1

You’ve got to be joking, #1:

At a train station, I had to rush like I’ve never rushed before to get my camera out. This guy is having a laugh. No exaggeration (honestly), it was MINUS 10 on that platform. I was shivering with thermal underwear and a Mount Everest style jacket. And along comes a German pirate wearing nothing but a thin shirt, leather pants and SANDALS.

And second thing:

You've got to be joking #2


And finally, here’s the download – sadly, we can’t embed the song on this page, so you have to go to our Facebook or our MySpace, here are the links!!



Add us while you’re there!

And finally here is a pic of us recording the tune, in our ‘studio’…

Love from Dukes.

  1. Forgive my insolence, but why harp on with It’s A War, when, clearly, No Disguise is your best song?
    Yes, in my obviously-not-so-humble opinion.

    Not saying It’s A War is crap, far from it, but it lacks what No Disguise is filled with: melody, sparse yet awesome harmony and a rythm that makes you feel the drumming was slightly held back, but oh so effective nonetheless.

    OK.. I’ll shut up now 😛
