Time Grove - Roy The King (Wah Wah 45s)
2nd November 2018
Roy The King
(Wah Wah 45s)
Oh bloody hell! Here come this smug lot once again with another essential must have 45. I of course refer to London record label fortune tellers Wah Wah 45s who know at this stage what taste buttons to press when it comes to their customer fan base and on this release they're hitting all the right buttons and even pulling a few levers (I say!)
Their latest prize act is Time Grove and 'Roy The King' is their majestic debut that bears all the trappings and pomp of a record that eclipses the competition from on high. Not to say that Time Grove are not earnest in their approach to crafting a modern jazz masterpiece and on the evidence here we should all be keeping a keen look out for their debut LP when it drops. That will be one request on my list that will leave Father Christmas with a dilemma on Christmas Eve. Does he leave the LP under my tree or put it back in the sack for both him and Mrs. Claus to enjoy back at the North Pole? Watch this space.
'Roy The King' is available now on Wah Wah 45s from the Time Grove Bandcamp page: https://timegroveproject.bandcamp.com/album/roy-the-king
