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.
Little Criminals: Running (Mike TV dub mix), release July 26th 2019 on Tune Core.
