KING ROOSTER: Snake Bait (Vinyl 7″)

KING ROOSTER:  Snake Bait Let’s not speak of the fact that a copy of the new King Rooster vinyl 7″, Snake Bait, was posted by 45 Live Records’, Mr Pete Isaac in a timely manner from his neck of the woods on 17 December 2021 and yet took a full twenty-two days to travel the hundred miles to MB Towers in Bristol. Who says privatisation is a catastrophic prioritisation of
shareholder dividends over investing properly in vital service? No, let’s speak instead of the fact that 45 Live Records has finally managed to put out a funk record (after a mere ten previous releases!) and that the purveyors of said funk are London outfit King Rooster (featuring members of The Getup) known for laying down sweaty Hammond funk grooves. This one doesn’t disappoint on that score with the band laying down a frantic number on A-side with Snake Bait. For the monkey’s money though, (and I’m sure Mr Isaac will be with me here since he’s a notorious B-side fiend), it’s the looser, more rolling groove of flipside Stickin’ It that is the one! Get bit and stick it to the dancefloor…
(Out now on 45 Live Records)
