There’s a new compilation album from Acid Jazz records, Soul Potential, featuring a selection of great new soul tracks, including one of mine. Turn Your Head Around is a song written with the great Jess Roberts, and features her stunning voice in fine form. Other great tracks on the compilation include Magnus Carlson’s great From Now On and a lovely New Street Adventure track called Hangin’ On, Hangin’ Up. Soul Potential will be released on May 25th, but you can already pre-order it from their shop and from iTunes and Amazon (if you’re into downloads).
On May 31st, I’ll be DJing again for The Good Foot club night at Madame JoJo’s in the heart of Soho. Resident DJ Snowboy and I will be playing 60’s and early 70’s soul, funk, R&B, ska, jazz and a smattering of jump blues, rock’n’roll and latin. A friendly atmosphere and a busy dancefloor is guaranteed. We are on between 10pm and 3am, and it’s a very generous £8 on the door.
Pimlico have almost finished their new album. More news on this to follow, but if you haven’t already investigated last year’s teaser track The Gutter then pop over to Bandcamp. Some of our old material is available to download on iTunes.
The Red Inspectors have a new album in the pipeline too. The acclaimed first album Are We The Red Inspectors? Are We? is still available direct from Acid Jazz via their eBay store on both vinyl and CD, but I’m told that stocks of both are starting to run out so order soon to avoid disappointment!
I’ll be back out with the Paul Weller band in June and July, playing a series of shows around the UK and the USA. Details and tickets are available from paulweller.com.
