Any wax warriors aghast at the lack of vinyl to accompany the recent drop of Funkstamatic, the second LP by Dutch crew Euro Cinema, can relax a little bit. Painted Dog Records have put out a seven inch of two of the dopest cuts – the gritty uptempo mover Thank You (The Cuckoo) and the guitar-picking New Orleans (or rather, Nieuw Orlijns) funk of 1 Kind Of Coffee. I say ‘can relax a little bit’ – they’ve only pressed 250 copies – 100 on clear vinyl and the rest on black wax. The label reliably informs me that Juno has it in stock though the Juno website’s claiming it’ll be out in a week.
