Check Out The Library

What would you say if I were to tell you that the hottest thing on the hip hop/reggae UK music scene right now is headed by a white guy who doffs a trilby hat and tweed waistcoat and whose band, Mr. Hudson and the Library, was last seen playing at the Swiss Cottage Library (yes that kind of library, you know, the places where old people go to warm up in the winter)? Okay, stop snickering. Because what if I also told you that Mr.Hudson's band snagged a coveted spot on Jools Holland late last year; their February gig at Brick Lane's super trendy, 93 Feet East, is long sold out; and they are opening for Amy Winehouse's upcoming, sold-out tour? Oh, and I can't get enough (but who am I anyway?)

Listen to their upcoming single, "Too Late, Too Late," here:

Mr Hudson And The Library's debut album, A Tale Of Two Cities, is due out on general release, 5th March 2007. My advice: catch them now, in small venues, where the music feels fresh and before you'll have to look through binoculars to catch a glimpse of Mr H's eye catching stage fashion. His hat certainly beats Doherty's (oops, sorry buddy, when I said check out I meant the library, not life). Never mind.

Am I sensing sort of a mid-career Bowie-esqe soudn?

I like the bass, steel pans, electric drums, and percussion combination.

I bet you are right. They will go far.

This is really radical for the NAACP! The logic certainly does exist to support their involvement and pro-stance.I am anxious to see what type of response this is going to receive.
