KARIME KENDRA & THE KILLER METERS
(Breakin Bread / Scenario Records)
Plus DJ support from
VIRGIL HOWE AKA SPARO
The last FFTT LIVE! of the year and we really have pulled out all the stops for this one. Think of this as an early Xmas present with love from us to you as we proudly present THE KILLER METERS! London's finest purveyors of down and dirty funk started life as a Meters cover band and released the well received 'A Tribute to the Meters' in 2004 on Scenario Records. KARIME KENDRA (daughter of late soul singer Ty Karim) featured on 2 of the tracks and is now a full time member of the band. No longer purely covering the Meters tunes, also expect original material and their own interpretations of heavy funk & breaks classics. With a double 45 of their own material out before the end of the year on prolific UK funk & hip hop label BREAKIN BREAD, this is a major coup for us!
SCENARIO RECORDS & FUTURE SOUND OF LONDON affiliated DJ/producer VIRGIL HOWE aka SPARO is yet another for the purists to really enjoy. In recent years Virgil has produced for Foreign Beggars, remixed for the Nextmen and Shawn Lee as well as releasing a mix CD and solo album 'Geniac'. To give you an idea of what to expect from a DJ set, his mixtape 'Sparo Worlds' featured 40 tracks including Caveman, Mr Lif, James Brown. De La Soul, The Incredible Bongo Band, Sly & The Family Stone, Gangstarr, Anti Pop Consortium, and Joe Cocker!
As ever the usual band of resident funkateers MR LINGO, POWERCUT & EWAN HOOZAMI will be there to play some of their vast collection of 45's and funk and hip hop classics.
This is set to be the biggest and baddest FFTT LIVE so far so don't miss out!
