USA March/April Tour & Album (posted 4 weeks ago)

It was a real delight to reconnect with many of our US fans and fellow musicians on Jamcruise at the end of February. We are now gearing up for our first US tour since 2020 which will co-incide with the release of our latest studio record "Old School" (out March 29th on One Note Records & Color Red) which will be available on vinyl LP and CD at the shows. Check out tour page to find out if we are playing anywhere near you on this trip, and if not, hopefully we can get to you next time...

New Single Out This Friday February 16th (posted 2 months ago)

“Do The Sausage Roll” is a “Hammond-led instrumental souljazz banger” (this is a direct quote from the PR notes written by me, the drummer) and will be the first digital single from the forthcoming album “Old School”. The title clearly implies a response to some kind of hip teen dance craze. A more imaginative and/or ambitious band might have devised some clever choreographed moves and filmed themselves performing for TikTok, but that would probably have triggered various debilitating age-related injuries. Besides, none of us knows how TikTok works. The track should magically show up this Friday on all the digital platforms so you’ll be able to come up with your own special dance for it then.

Spain Tour Report (Aug 6, 2023)

​Just saying goodbye to each other after a great run of four live shows in Northern Spain, each of which was a unique and special experience. We visited Galicia for the first time, playing on an outdoor stage for the 10th anniversary party of the Ho! Gruf (pronounced “groove”) music club in the ancient Roman walled city of Lugo. Then we headed across to El Nautico de San Vicente, a beach venue and recording studio where they host three bands a day and the audiences show up without knowing who they will see. The third show was in Avilés, Asturias, for La Grapa Black Music Festival (pictured). Last night we capped off the tour with an intimate club show at Dabadaba in Donostia, Basque Country. Thanks to everyone who came out to see us, we hope to return to Spain again next year.

News Update (Jul 22, 2023)

​Right after a great little run of shows (Saint Paul Soul Funk Festival in France, then Manchester, London and Leeds, UK) we went down to Joe’s place - The Perle Studio in the Peak District - where we laid down 11 new 4-piece tunes which we hope to release on vinyl LP and digital streaming early next year. We have just parted company for 12 days but will meet up again in Madrid ready for a run of four shows on August 2,3,4,5 in Northern Spain with Lamar Williams Jr. Looking forward to revisiting songs from the Shake It and Deplar albums, as well as instrumental staples from the back catalogue.
