London's newest R&B-punk sensation ? okay, maybe our only R&B-punk outfit ? are making fun times where ever they go. With a repertoire encompassing many of the greats of the ?50s and ?60s you won't be able to help but move your feet. The King howls like Screaming Jay Hawkins with Bo Diddley chasing his coat-tail and with Andre Williams trying to offer up some of his bacon fat. This man never stops shakin' and twistin' and groovin' while the Cumberland 3 (former members of the Ulcers, Chinese Lungs and Parkinsons) play their own branded mix of vintage rockabilly desperate rock'n'roll and a bit of soul with fire, energy, gusto and fun! Previous singles have sold like the proverbial hot cakes and this one on Dirty Water is sure to do the same. This is an old fashioned singles band, one that puts out one seven inch after another, all designed, and guaranteed, to get you dancing like a madman. Whether live on stage or on record this is one of the most exciting bands in rock?n?roll ? they are guys who know what it takes to make us move. Equal parts rock and soul, with a dash of funk and a healthy dose of rhythm and blues. Whether you?re at a club show or in your living room you won?t be able to help yourself from shaking and shimmying. With this special Christmas flavoured release the guys believe it is their best record yet. It?s sure to be a hit at all the parties during the coming seasonal festivities!
