Rating: ★★★★☆

Having diagnosed a distinct drop in the amount of decent new funk (and that’s ‘new’ funk not nufunk) in your ears this year, Sister Henry & The Prescriptions offer up some aural medicine in the form of this three tracker. Funky mod-style rnb on a sixties tip, Sister Henry sings it like she’s Dusty, and the band keep up admirably. He’s So Fine is the is the swinging-mod dancefloor one, One Monkey Don’t Stop The Show is the slightly slower smoocher but what you really want it for is My Good Lovin’ which kicks a dirty little rhythm and some brass that recalls Primal Scream’s Loaded, funnily enough. Full marks for tunes then but if I was being a picky bastard (and it has been known), this really needed a kick up the bass. Remix please!
