Tallowah: Round 3

From Leigh on Sea here is the sound of Tallowah, heralding their new album ‘Round 3’ which is available in CD and vinyl format. A four-piece reggae and dub outfit, Tallowah generate a really authentic roots feeling evident in the track ‘Tyrant’ with its classic-style melodica sound and dub conclusion. This puts Southend firmly in the reggae spotlight!

Tallowah, ‘Round 3’, CD/vinyl released June 2019 on Khandha Records

Little Criminals: Running

You probably know that Little Criminals is a fine satirical song and album by Randy Newman from the 1970s but you may not be aware that Little Criminals are also an established Whitby based trio comprising Pete Gilgan (singer/guitarist), Chris Hogan (bass) and Colin Carlton (drums). They have been writing and playing rock and reggae since the early 90s and here they are with a great single entitled ‘Running (Mike TV dub mix)’. It takes the band’s basic track and at the production stage adds some studio effects and a U Roy sample. It features effective guitar over a driving rhythm and has a strong dub feel. Due for release in July, it promises well for the prospects of catching the band live.
