Indie Buddie Review – Fish In The Sea

The Word UK have released their new EP ‘Fish In The Sea’. The Word (UK) are a Pop Rock band from Medway, Kent.

Funke and the Two Tone Baby – Denizen

Uncle Jim’s on a roll, here’s the latest new release from Ranscombe Studios by Medway legend Funke and the Two Tone Baby. ‘From the political, pertinent, yet lighthearted and witty commentary on fake news with ‘Genghis Khan’, to the jazz meets drum & bass mash-up of ‘Doppelganger’ and the outright festival sing-along classic of ‘Work all Week’, each track is individual but drawn together with a coherent vision and unique sound.

They don’t make them like they used to….

Medway’s Glenn Prangnell is a bloody genius. I’ve absolutely no idea how many years this guy has spent on this planet but he’s spent that time soaking up the sounds of the 60’s and 70’s, not just from the beat-boom era this writer had initially slotted him into but from other genres as well from Northern Soul to film soundtracks and everything in-between. ‘A Clip Round the Ear’ (even the title will … Read more

Lurching behemoth…

Blows the doors off every time…

A VERY strong set from beginning to end, “A Clip Round The Ear” is an absolute knockout of an album. Glenn Prangnell continues to amaze with his extremely sharp songwriting skills and sense of melody that carry on and build upon the very best of British Invasion era classic music. The soul and blues that Suzi Chunk bring add a depth and power that very few other current female singers can even … Read more

I, Awake – new UpCDownC release arriving 22 September…

Medway-based instrumental trio Upcdownc have been nudging (sludging?) at the edges of many a rock radar since 2000.

Newest and Grooviest

Prolific songwriter Glenn Prangnell has released yet another album of fun, classy and well-crafted pop songs under his Groovy Uncle guise and this one may actually be the best yet. Mrs Saywell Says is a real pot-boiler — I mistyped and wrote “pop-boiler”, which is actually an accurate description. Great British pop with echoes of Ray Davies with layers of other influences so that it’s a bit like The Dukes of Stratosphear.  Really good. I … Read more
