Music pimpin'..!!!

Have you ever heard something so good that you start swearing?
(Yes, this is a variation of Russell Howard's "Eating something so good you want to sexually gratify whoever made it" line)

Anyway. Yes. Seriously amazing. The Impellers. You have to click on their name, go to their MySpace site and just listen. The vocalist has one hell of a voice. And the music.. Oh Gods - the music. You can't help but move to it. It sounds amazing. Just whoa.

I was listening to Craig Charles Funk And Soul Show on BBC 6music's iPlayer, bopping along to the great tracks while doing some chores in my room and was stopped dead in my tracks when they did a cover of The Ting Ting's 'That's Not My Name'. I'm not a big fan of that song to be honest, it just grates my ears after a couple of times hearing it blasted at me from every direction I turn.. But The Impellers was just amazing, they did a live cover in the 6music studio and seriously - just whoa.

It's supposed to be up on the site in the next couple of days (hours if Craig Charles has anything to do with it, apparently).. Check it out if you're a fan of funk. Hell, check them out even if you're not a big fan of funk. Amazing stuff.

Though I'm of the generation of Jazz (Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Billy Holiday)and Woodstock (Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix, Beatles) I have to admit this music of yours swings. It really does.

My best friend is a HEUGE fan of jazz, and after listening to his stuff I kinda went over and took a sneak peek at funk and soul - it all started from jazz :D

Rec me some stuff?
