‘A gritty rhythm section of old school drums and fender or upright bass, alongside funky hammond and rhodes, with some sweet George Benson-ish jazz guitar licks on top.’
The sound harks back to the 60’s and 70’s Californian West Coast jazz funk music of artists such as Wes Montgomery, George Benson, whilst keeping their feet amongst today's contemporary DIY funk and soul artists such as Sharon Jones and The Dapkings.
In May 2011, directly after devastating floods freakishly ripped through their hometown of Brisbane, the ensemble went to record their debut album in Melbourne with Jake Mason (Cookin’ on 3 Burners). ‘Mind the Curb’ was released in May 2013 on German Indie groove label Legere Recordings and P-Vine Records in Japan to warm responses worldwide. A remixed album followed in 2014 featuring 90% local Australian producers/remixers. Their sophomore album 'Trash or Treasure' was released in June 2015 exploring some 'wilder' tones and textures alongside their dusty grooves.
“Smokin’ jazz re-work of Freddie Hubbard’s Red Clay!” (Chris Gill - Northside Records/Melb/AU)
“Some hefty funk out of Australia!” (Snowboy/Blues &Soul Mag- UK)
