When I first heard the A-side of this by Finnish funksters The Regals it sounded like Tom Jones covering Ricky Martin’s La Vida Loca. Unfortunately it still sounded like that on all subsequent listens. Thank Christ for the B side then which sounds like Tom Jones doing a mental funk soul bomb. It’s good to know the Finnish funk and soul scene is still thriving though…anyone remember The Soultors?
Out now on Jupiter Finland
