MOJO Magazine : THE SPASM BAND COVER THE ROLLING STONES AND RUBBER ORCHESTRAS GETS A…

29 Nov 2011 | from spasmband.blogspot.com/


A couple months ago Mojo magazine contacted us for a special project. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Rolling Stones' seminal 1971 album 'Sticky Fingers' they were asking contemporary soul (or soul influenced) artists to cover the entire album for their January 2012 issue.
The Spasm Band were given the unenviable task of covering the glimmer twins' dark and classic paen to heroin 'Dead Flowers'.
So we holed ourselves up in our producer Malcolm Catto's London studio for a couple days and cut our unique version, which you can hear on the cover disc which also features Aloe Blac, Sharon Jones and Lee Fields. All genius stuff really, to be in this company and to be associated with the greatest rock & roll band in the known universe. I hope Mick & Keith like what we've done.
Elsewhere in the same issue of the magazine, Lois Wilson gave our Rubber Orchestras album a resounding 4 star review, check :"...psychedelic jazz and voodoo funk...one of the most talented and engaging purveyors of the music right here and now. Joseph has been creating his mesmeric sounds that draw on Axis:Bold as love-era Hendrix, Marley, Gary Byrd and Coltrane since 2007 and with each record released he's getting stronger, stranger, bolder..." 
Its a great review; read it if you can sneak a peak at magazine, or buy it if you want to hear the music. Thanks Mojo. love... Anthony
