Listen here to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling:

Well, we arrived with a big welcome to this edition of The Blues Come Calling and the prediction that if you liked the blues, then we had a whole hour of them here, kicking off with a little international flavour, in the form of Helsinki band, Tina Bednoff & the Cocktailers. They brought a track from their new, self titled album which is full of 40’s & 50’s rhythm and blues, including our opening number ‘Jump Sister Jump’

There were plenty of memories of recent choices too, including New Zealand band Tina Bednoff & The CocktailersBrilleaux, who were on our giglist recently during their current UK tour . . . . and more than impressive they were too. They delivered a rocking set inspired by the UK R&B bands of the 60s and brought a real sense of fun and excitement with their music. Welast week’s choice of Mike Sanchez & The Big Town Playboys with their version of ‘Shake Your Hips’ and it inspired a rummage in the archives for Slim Harpo’s original . . . and we didn’t come up empty handed . . . .

Our choice was their inventive treatment of the classic ‘Hoochie Coochie Man’. So until the next time The Blues Come Calling remember . . . Have fun!
