The BAMBOOS 'Step it Up' LP
Tru Thoughts. 2006. 11 tracks. 46 mins
Finally an album from our favourite Aussie funk group. They get much love & support through the hip hop scene down here & they most likely have garnered a wider audience through their touring work as the Antipodean backing band for Will Holland's QSO outfit. This album is getting a simultaneous release on Tru Thoughts(UK), Ubiquity(USA) & P-Vine (Japan).
Distributed in Australia by Creative Vibes.
The title track has just been released as a 45rpm & the album will also be available on double vinyl.
My Review: Sen-bloody-sational.
