Hackney Colliery Band vs Goldie
"Finally, the new HCB album is almost upon us, and the first taster features another unexpected cover in the shape of Goldie's 90's soulful d&b classic, "Inner City Life".
The response to their unexpected cover versions and twisted originals has been incredible, with huge amounts of radio play from the likes of Craig Charles and Huey Morgan, and with their covers of "Africa" and "No Diggity" fast becoming club staples for hip hop DJs like Mr. Thing and Questlove.
On the flip is another firing original from the band. "Hitched" is an intense and furious Balkan flavoured bomb that's sure to be a festival favourite this summer. Single out July 8 (digital/7" vinyl) on WahWah45s.
On July 8th the Hackney Colliery Band will be hosting a very special show and Hackney Colliery BBQ at Sutton House in Hackney.
Not only will there be a full show from the band but you can have the specially commissioned Hackney Colliery Banger for dinner and drink locally brewed beer too! Come see them launch there new single and begin the countdown to the incredible forthcoming album with a massive celebration of all things Hackney."
