uplifting track from the band with Boa’s languid bass dominating the groove over luscious pads. Headphones will bring out some of the more subtle noise nuances and quirks.

a little bit of fun for these times. Bam’s funk orchestra with a liberal smattering of cheese and ducks. I suggest headphones to sample the usual noise-a-lings.

second track from Art Guthie’s “beyond the closed door” series, another messy jam from the echoey Boozle Hall with Bam on Hammond, Art on guitar, Boa on double bass and Ed on drums. Best listened to loud to feel you’re in the hall.

the Nile

the Nile     

some jazz-funk. The title has nothing to do with a river. There is a tenuous link to Nile Rodgers who is one of my favourite musicians and producers. Featuring alto and tenor saxophones played over a strong rhythm section of bass, drums, guitar and keys.

didn’t anybody tell you?

a rather retro mix of funk, disco, Turkish makams and the usual nonsense featuring some stirling bass work by Boa Dubless and strong beats by Ed Thrums in this dare I say it, prog funk disco track.

a funk soul jam featuring soul sisters Terrie Odabi, Ruth & Stephe on wails, and soul brothers Bam on rhodes, Art on guitar, Ed on drums & Boa on bass.

sulla strada per Barga

sulla strada per Barga     

… another road trip for the Bam, Boa, Ed and Art. This one long and torturous and they haven’t even got there yet. Anyroad, they will eventually. This tune was written for a good friend who lives in Barga, Italy who plays in a soul band. Therein lies a problem, because this track is a jazz-funk hybrid with some scarily muzak-like nonsense thrown in. Featuring Hammond, bass, drums and guitar.

a funking jam featuring Terrie from Tonehammer on vocals joining Bam Boozle & the horn swogglers plus friends with hammond, bass, guitar, clavinet, drums, moog and a sax section.

10 past funk o’clock

10 past funk o'clock     

a mish-mash of funk and disco with some jazz and other nonsense thrown in for good measure. Featuring solid bass and drums with Hammond, guitars, horns and the odd strings.

more jazz-funk with a hybrid ending – an up-tempo number heavily influenced by JTQ to the point where I think I may have subconsciously nicked some riffs – I hope not.
