New Hammondbeat Releases

News from Hammondbeat Records on new releases:

ARTIST: CAPTAIN HAMMOND / THE FUTURO SEVEN
TITLE: CAPTAIN HAMMOND vs THE FUTURO SEVEN
CAT#: HB7-03 (limited edition of 250)
RELEASED: APRIL 8, 2008
FORMAT: 7” VINYL / 33 1/3 rpm
Captain Hammond’s evolution to the defender of mankind against the souless soundscape of today’s electronic music. Origin, the haunted and moody tale of defying the odds against man vs machine, is re-filtered by The Futuro Seven’s advance scout APOLLO, whose guerrilla tactics of using technology against technology, introduces a morphing synthetic that’ll render the Captain’s mortal enemy defenseless. The Captain returns the favor with a B3-meets-Waldorf exchange of his own on The Futuro Seven’s Mercury Wonderland…an upbeat funky space-soul that you will dance to in any gravity. Run-Logan-Run.

ARTIST: TONY FACE BIG ROLL BAND
TITLE: KEEP THE FAITH (SESSION 1)
CAT#: HB7-04 (limited edition of 250)
RELEASED: APRIL 8, 2008
FORMAT: 7” VINYL / 45 rpm
RTIST: PHAT FRED
TITLE: PHAT FRED LIVE IN DENMARK – the single
CAT#: HB7-05 (limited edition of 250)
RELEASED: APRIL 8, 2008
FORMAT: 7” VINYL / 45 rpm
Yu Nou Rili is dirty and tight funk of the greasiest kind. A pumped-up version, originally from the 2006 debut album “Don’t Spoil The Soup!” [HBR-008], opens with a deep bass riff that gives way to an audio assault that’ll set off car alarms and smoke detectors everywhere. Arecio Smith lays out a 90 second Hammond solo that’ll leave you breathless for more. On the flip, the Rufus Thomas’ (1917-2001) late-60’s classic Memphis Train gets the Phat treatment. Featuring the gritty vocal style of guitarist Dave Wilkinson, this is a butt-chunky, country funkin’ dancefloor ball-buster that is no less shy about it’s heavy, heavy B3 heart skipping power.

    Oh Yes! This is Phat Fred at their very best. Much heavier and funkier than Don't Spoil The Soup! (although I love that album.) This is dirty gritty rocking funk. Can't wait for the full length album.
