SKEEWIFF: Coming Home Baby/ Triumph Stag 7″ (2017)

SKEEWIFF:  Coming Home/ Triumph Stag 7Never ones to merely flaunt it when they can parade around sporting nothing but diamond nipple tassles and a gold lamé cock-sock (metaphorically, you understand), the Jalapeno Records crew celebrate nearly two decades in the business by making their two hundred and fiftieth release a limited red vinyl Skeewiff 7″ double-header of Coming Home Baby and Triumph Stag. The former is a Mel Tormé-sampling jazz n bass bomb while the latter is a 142 bpm big beat Mod-mover featuring lead organ riffage from the man himself – Alan ‘The Mohawks’ Hawkshaw. Blimey! It’s enough to make you overheat – a point probably not lost on Messrs Rizzo and Ireland when the track name was chosen.
(Out 7 July on Jalapeno Records)
