I don’t typically think of England when I’m looking for some funk.  I suppose there’s a few bands that have put out some decent things, but it just seems like such an American product (yeah, I know there’s good stuff to be found in multiple African and Asian nations as well).  But Euro funk has always left me a bit cold.  Maybe this one classes a bit differently because, while the band is from London, it’s primarily composed of people from Jamaica and Guyana.  And that island feel does get refracted through a multicultural lens, creating a sound that seems to escape convention.  It was about 95 a day ago and it led to me turning a lovely shade of crimson, but sunburns aside, it was just too difficult to resist blasting this and sit out on the balcony for a day.

  1. Cool. I have this one on a pretty static-filled vinyl copy, but I just looked it up on Ebay and saw that it's been reissued (for anyone interested in picking up a good copy of amazing LP).
    Thanks for posting!
