Bebop Spoken There

Melanie Charles: "If I don't have a gig I'll try to get in bed by midnight. But if I do, I might end up having a jam session after. That happened a few weeks ago, and I didn't get to bed until 7 a.m.." - (The New York Times Aug. 10, 2018)

Vinyl review: King Bee - Money Gone

Dave Wilde (ten/bar/fl/vcl); Richard Burns (tpt); Chris Jelly (vbs); Mark Hand (keys); Steve Glendinning (gtr); Dan Brady (bs gtr); Jonathon Marriott (dms).
Anything involving our local funk merchants King Bee is always worthy of a mention. And if you've been to a recent gig you'll surely have heard Money Gone. Well it's now out on a 7" vinyl single - takes me back to my middle age.
The song reflects a Saturday morning after a Friday night out on the toon/town/tiles - sentiments I'm sure many will relate to!
The band chant the lyric and  Steve and Dave blow some funky guitar and tenor respectively with Chris and the other drones making their presence felt.
A word of warning, only 200 copies have been pressed - don't delay, imagine what it will be worth in years come!
Get in on the ground floor!
Lance.
