New RK band NICK PRIDE & THE PIMPTONESPublished on Lunedì, 04 Aprile 2011
RK is extremely pleased to announce recent addition to the label NICK PRIDE & THE PIMPTONES. Formed in Newcastle in 2007, these guys really know how to groove! Their new 45 "Waitin' So Long feat. Jess Roberts / "Lay It On The Line feat. Zoe Gilby" is a brilliant double dose of deep funk & soul-jazz, and is available for purchase on 45/Digital NOW, in advance of April 4th release date, exclusively here at RK. This 7 inch anticipates the band's debut full-length "Midnight Feast Of Jazz", scheduled for release next May 9th on CD/LP/Digital, and sure to become a jazz-funk classic! Keep your eyes peeled on this website for an exclusive advance release!
Since their formation 4 years ago, 6 piece ensemble Nick Pride & The Pimptones were quick to raise a following in the UK, and by 2009 the band was playing some of the best venues the country has to offer, including The Yardbird in Birmingham, The Hi-Fi Club in Leeds, and festivals such as The Gateshead International Jazz Festival. That same year producer extraordinaire Smoove picked up the band and released Pimptones' single "Deeper Pimp" on his Wack Records, which went on to enjoy considerable airplay throughout Europe. Yes good people, Nick Pride & The Pimptones are the real deal, hear it to believe it!
"Two quality songs back to back, each with an excellent singer and a six piece band = one crispy seven inch! But it's not mathematics it's the music that counts. High quality soul with a funky edge. Recommended!" – Oliver Korthals (Mojo Club)
