This EP combines the work done a few years back of an extremely good, but incredibly loose and disorganised band. Full of raw energy and talent, the band sadly broke up before putting out more than 3 vinyl singles. This EP CD gathers them up and hints at the promise they showed. They were a good live band and could have matured into something special.
The CD is part inst part vocal. Sharon vocals are decent and the lyrics have attitude. The drums, courtesy of Malcolm Catto are hard and edgy, the bass is as heavy as hell. Nice support from two guitars, Hammond/Keyboard, percussion and occasional horns.
The songs are far more ragged than their contemparies like 'Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings' but its still damn good. The tunes tend to funk hard and heavy and lack subtlety, but then, thats the point.
If you like funky music, you will like this, but be warned; its pretty hardcore and is a live in the studio warts and all type of recording!
The band actually strived to achieve this affect and if youre looking at this CD then you'll already be accustomed to this sound Im sure. Get a copy now, 'cause these wont be available for long.
