KING MOJO – IRONSTONED

 


Four-piece Hammond driven Garage-Punk band from Middlesbrough team up with Medway’s finest Graham Day, at Ranscombe Studios on the banks of the Medway for a hard-hitting EP. Four strong originals with ‘5th Time Around’ being my personal favorite. Available on CD and Vinyl with more to come from King Mojo.

LET THE MUSIC PLAY – GENE PITNEY/ REVIEWING THE SITUATION – JACKIE BOND

 

Another fine release from Spoke Records. The Gene Pitney ‘She’s A Heartbreaker’ era track is a great slab of Blue-Eyed Soul restored and remastered from a battered Emi-Disc acetate. The highlight however is a superb version of Lionel Bart’s ‘Reviewing the Situation’ from the musical ‘Oliver’. This is every bit as good as the better-known Sandie Shaw version. It was due for release on Strike or subsidiary GO in 1967 originally before they went bust, only to find its way on the ‘Dream Babes’ CD in 2003. Now finally available on 45 grab one quick folks.

FOGBOUND – LP

 

A masterpiece beautifully packaged from one of our favourite 21st century bands also available on a limited red vinyl edition. Ten strong originals from a band that are growing in confidence with every gig and release. This album will no doubt become as revered as some of those sixties classic in years to come. Grab your copy now before they sell out and start going for silly money like some of the early singles from the link below.

PIAGGIO SOUL COMBINATION – ITALIAN BOOGALOO

 

The first album by this Pisa Soul-Jazz collective is limited to just 300 copies. These five faces clearly have a love for the Vespa as well as great music. Three covers from Brian Auger, William Bell and Eddie Harris shows you the bag this band are in. Three is the reoccurring theme here with guest vocalists Irene Mori, Sara Piaggesi and Marina Mulopulos. More to come from the PSC.

REBECCA DRY & RADEK AZUL BAND – BRING BACK SOUL

 

An English singer living in Paris who possesses a wide and powerful voice in a Northern and Deep Soul style. Her debut album ‘Rebecca Dry Sings Soul’ was a hit. And her second ‘Bring Back Soul’ with the ‘Radek Azul Band’ again is another triumph from the excellent Q-Sounds stable. Do yourself a favor and purchase a copy of this album from the link below. www.qsoundsrecording.com/


SUNBURST – THE MEN

 

The Men have had some favorable reviews on NUTSMAG from Graham in the past. ‘Sunburst’ is a change of musical direction partly down to a change of drummers and the recording process with a more organic approach. Band members played new musical instruments and adopted a more soulful approach, reminiscent of late era Beatles in some places. This album gives The Men another dimension to their energetic live shows.

LITTLE BARRIE – DEATH EXPRESS

 

Having followed the band from the very early days and done countless gigs with them it’s always a joy to hear the new material which always takes a fresh approach. ‘Death Express’ is a sonic album of clever Psychedelic Garage Rock riffs from singer, songwriter and demon guitarist Barrie Cadogan. It’s amazing what sounds this trio can produce with Virgil’s tight break beat drumming and Lewis Soulful bass lines. The result a double album with twenty tracks, go grab a copy of this future classic before it’s too late.
