PAMA INTERNATIONAL:  Stop The War On The PoorBlimey – no hiding the message on Pama International’s new one, Stop The War On The Poor as they eschew their more usual preference for rocksteady vibes with some heartwarming retro-soul that recalls Irma Thomas’s early seventies work with Jerry ‘Swamp Dogg’ Williams. Constructed from emotive piano and soul horns over a laid-back drum break and topped with life-affirming vocals, the track is the first single off the forthcoming LP (Pama International’s eleventh studio album!), The Altruistic Soul Sound Of…, which on the basis of this sounds very promising indeed – and seems likely to be sticking it to the man as well. What more could you ask for? A tour? Glad you asked because as it happens – that begins in just a few days time – dates below player. Check back soon for the full 411 on the album and cop the track below in a name your price deal.
