About this album

On their hotly anticipated third album, ‘Side Stepper’, Australian kings of funk The Bamboos take the beat-laden deep party funk of their previous LPs ‘Step It Up’ and ‘Rawville’ and push the boundaries of their sound with an injection of Northern soul and ‘60s Mod soul style. An amazing selection of guest vocalists - Kylie Auldist, MC Ty, Megan Washington and Swedish soul sensation Paul MacInnes - add their own unique flavours to the brew.

The first single, “King Of The Rodeo” featuring Megan Washington, out in September, was featured as the ‘X-Posure Hot One’ on John Kennedy’s XFM X-Posure show, as well as gaining major support from Gary Crowley (BBC London and 6Music), Mark Lamarr (BBC Radio 2) and Edward Adoo (NME Radio). This inspired cover of the Kings Of Leon song has pricked up the ears of the indie kids and clubbers alike, and launches the off-kilter indie-rock favourite into a land of Mod-fuelled swinging ‘60s boogaloo. Check out the brilliant promotional video here:

The album kicks off with “Nightsport”, a raucous instrumental soundtrack to the crazy times had by music lovers and music makers who come out only in the small hours, building into a furious funk groove followed by guitar breakdowns and soulful trumpet and piano solos.
