'Revolver Soul', Alabama 3's Eighth Studio album has been entirely self-produced and self financed. The freedom this has given us has allowed us to create a work of monstrous beauty, Deeper, Darker, Stronger and Stranger than anything you've heard us do before...
THE SPIRIT OF LOVE (Alabama 3's keyboard player)
'Alabama 3 are a seminal band. Their new album is their best yet.'
ALAN McGEE, FOUNDER OF CREATION RECORDS
'I love it. It's fucking brilliant.'
Alabama 3's implausible pitch - outlaw country-blueees meets techno in south London - has proved stubbornly long-lived. Best known for supplying The Sopranos with its theme song, the band are back with a fine eighth album of grizzled vocals, swampy grooves and hedonistic agitpop.
With 13 years and seven studio albums behind them, Alabama 3 know how to make a record. Consistency, variety, delicious irony and a good time are all pretty much a given...'Bad To The Bone' is branching into a whole new genre of menacing disco.
There's so much multi-dimensional mayhem going on, the only way to really enjoy Revolver Soul is to step away from the CD sleeve, groove along to the threatening beats, and ask absolutely no questions.
Alabama 3 returneth with a dark and sexy album from their own label. The freedom to do what they want and how shows with an eclectic mix of tracks, each of which is a tune in it's own right. Larry Love's lead vocals prowl over the album and beckon you in for a damn good time. Be prepared for eyebrow-raising collaborations with Johnny Borrell and Shane McGowan. A winner for the 'Bama faithfull, a grower for the newly converted.
