New Bands THE PRIVATES HAMMOND ORCHESTRAPublished on Martedì, 10 Novembre 2009
In collaboration with the Scottish Starla Records, Record Kick is pleased to welcome new group The Privates Hammond Orchestra, a new explosive organ trio formed by the guitar/drums/hammond that made up the backbone of Scottish R&B/funk luminaries The Boogaloo Investigators, later known as The Five Aces. Now choosing a more direct and raw sound, the threesome are specialising in R&B, Beat Instumental, Soul and Ska through this new musical ensemble whose vibe they themselves describe as a mix of Booker T & the MG's, Jack MacDuff, The Ventures and The John Barry 7.
The Privates Hammond Orchestra, along with noble bass-maestro Richard Anderson, were drafted in by Glaswegian multi-instrumentalist and songwriter extraordinaire Joe Kane for backup on "I'm Sorry (Can I Please Come Home)", an uplifting ditty that ruminates on matters of the heart and that is included in the Soulshaker Volume 6 compilation. Joe is a unique talent with a raft of solo and group projects under his own name and as member of The Owsley Sunshine with whom he recorded three acclaimed albums. The 45 release of the track backed with The Privates own "The Battle Of Yoker" on the flip side, a grinding titty shaker ode to standing in queue in a chipshop, which is due out in stores worldwide on the 16th of November will be exceptionally available in advance on the Record Kicks website from Tuesday November 10th at 3pm. 500 copies limited press so first come first served! In the meantime check out the new SoulShaker compilation here.
