BEAT BRONCO ORGAN TRIO: Hey Hey (feat. ALBERTO PALACIOS ANAUT)

BEAT BRONCO ORGAN TRIO: Hey Hey (feat. ALBERTO PALACIOS ANAUT)In the run-up to the release of the debut album from Madrid’s Beat Bronco Organ Trio, the band revisit Dave Bartholomew’s proto-funk New Orleans R&B cut Hey Hey and release their own blistering version. Where Bartholomew’s ’66 original version is a loose groove that foregrounds second-line rhythms and anticipated the percussive template that James Brown was soon to unleash, BBOT stylistically look in the other direction upping the tempo and the R&B quotient creating a latter-day mod-dancefloor burner which features a fine raucous turn on the mic by singer Alberto Palacios Anaut. A big crowd-pleaser then, though the lyrical concept of a wild night in Mexico might not have quite the same connotations these days what with all those corpses strung up from bridges and things.
