BACAO RHYTHM & STEEL BAND: 1 Thing

Ok so here’s one thing that’ll get you trippin’ – Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band’s 1 Thing cover of Amerie’s massive 2005 funky rnb classic. So that means they have to play drums like The Meters’ ‘Zigaboo’ Modeliste and deliver a steel drum melody that covers the guitar and Amerie’s vocals right? Right. It’s a tough call but the monkey reckons they’ve nailed it up pretty tight and preserved a reputation for not only picking dope shit to cover but doing dope versions of everything they’ve picked to cover. Incredibly, there’s better stuff even than this to come on the LP – both covers and originals. You can’t wait.
