Get ready for this brand new hot ‘n’ spicy remix from 77:78. Dubwood Allstars re-rub of their current single ‘Chilli’ is brilliantly nuts and is out now for your listening pleasure.
Talking about the track, Aaron from the band said:
Chilli is just us being the sort of 70’s dirty ol’ roadhouse blues band that we always wanted to be….dressed in double denim and playing in a desert bar where the chilli is hot as rockets.
The Dubwood Allstars added:
Looking forward to seeing 77:78 …hope they’re as good as when I saw them at The Fillmore in ’75, managed to capture this stomping version of Chilli on my Nagra, been in the loft ever since…
Set to pick up where the Bees left off, 77:78 is the new project from Aaron Fletcher & Tim Parkin. The debut album ‘Jellies’ was recorded at Studio Humbug on the Isle of Wight and musically picks it way from sublime west coast harmonies that recall the frayed beauty of the Beach Boys Smiley Smile, to the ramshackle dub of King Tubby via the playfulness of early Syd Barret.
“Some musicians and bands definitely have their sound and stick to it, which is fair enough, but that’s just not us. Whenever we’re in the studio we’re constantly inspired to go down different musical paths, which I suppose is why the record we’ve made sounds so diverse.” Crucially though, the outcome is something that is 100% Fletcher and Parkin’s.
The bands debut album ‘Jellies’ is due for release on Friday 6th July.
Finally, having recently played a stunning debut London headline show at Omeara, the band have added some further U.K. festival dates across the summer, plus an in-tore at Rough Trade East the day of album release.
